Long used by "in the know" sailors like Olympians and skiff racers are the Atlas Fit Gloves. The Insulated Atlas Fit Gloves have the thermal protection, grip, design, and wash-ability needed to be a reliable piece of gear for rounding the marks. The rubber palm makes gripping those hard-to-hold, slippery lines easy, and the thick, breathable knit back makes these gloves great for colder temps. These are the perfect gloves for jobs like pit, bow, mast, squirrel, and railmeat while rounding the marks during frostbite season or the chillier Spring Wednesday night races. 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.

These are the Atlas Therma-Fit or Thermal-Fit Glove. It is a knit glove throughout with a blend of cotton and synthetic. It's a nice soft on the skin feel so the elastic knit all the way around really once the form and hold to your hand. They are dipped in a natural latex rubber, and they have this very textured palm and makes it really easy to hold onto. This is a light to medium glove. It would be good in the spring or the fall, but I wouldn't wear it in the winter time. It does have cotton in it so it's not going to dry quite as fast as an all synthetic. These are popular in our store and really comfortable to wear in moderate conditions, the Atlas Thermal-Fit.
