Long used by Olympic class, skiff, and other sailors "in the know" are the Atlas gloves. Atlas Fit Gloves have superior grip, design and wash ability. The Latex rubber palm makes gripping those hard to hold, wet and slippery lines easy. The breathable knit back makes them an excellent glove even the coldest of conditions. Like sticky tires on a race car, don't expect Atlas gloves to last more than a few hard races but do expect, just like that race car, your hands will definitely be stuck to the rope!
