Spend any amount of time working with your hands, and you’ll definitely find yourself shopping for gloves. Whether you work inside or out, a good set of work gloves can make all the difference in the world. They keep your hands clean, provide a better grip on your tools and your work, and improve your overall comfort. Today you can choose from hundreds of gloves — but, in my opinion, most of them can’t hold a candle to the Atlas gloves.
Instantly recognizable and widely used, you’ll see the Atlas Fit 300 gloves on all kinds of jobs, from landscaping and construction to security system installations and even tree climbing — the uses are limited only by your imagination. I even read of a guy who uses ’em to protect his fingers while playing the guitar — no joke.
The Atlas Fit 300 glove consists of a seamless polycotton liner dipped in latex to provide excellent grip, dexterity, and durability. The rough, latex palm coating also provides protection against punctures and abrasion, while the open back allows for maximum breathability. Made by Showa Co. USA, the original Atlas Glove comes in four sizes: S, M, L, and XL. Showa also offers many variants of the Atlas, including a cut-resistant, Kevlar-lined glove and a thermal-lined glove for colder climates.
Although the Atlas won’t replace every glove in the shed, you’ll definitely be reaching for those thick, cumbersome, leather gloves less often. You can get knockoffs, but I suggest you buy the higher-quality original. They’re very affordable, with a street price starting at $3 and 12-packs available for $20. For the money, you can’t buy a more versatile glove.
