Long used by "in the know" sailors like Olympians and skiff racers are the Atlas Grip Gloves. The standard duty Atlas Grip Gloves have superior grip, design, and wash-ability while being fairly lightweight. The rubber palm makes gripping those hard-to-hold, slippery lines easy, and the breathable knit back makes these gloves great to use in warmer weather. These are the perfect gloves for jobs like pit, bow, mast, squirrel, and railmeat while rounding the marks. Like sticky tires on a race car, don't expect Atlas gloves to last more than a few hard races, but do expect for your hands to be stuck to that rope just like that race car on a track. Stock up with a few pairs so you'll always have fresh gloves once you burn out the "tires".
Pro tip: Snip the ends off the rubber fingertips with a pair of scissors for added dexterity.

- Great glove Review by Ackshun
I had bought these a few years ago for Sunfish & dinghy sailing in warm weather. Very comfortable cloth glove and very grippy plastic surface. Now I also use them as a regular utility glove on shore. They work for layering inside a larger shell for those really cold days.
