Atlas glove field test

Atlas gloves being worn by wood chopper

These new Atlas gloves do a great job keeping my hands warm and dry.

The double dipped coating decreases dexterity a little, but it's a nice trade off compared to days like today when I would normally get regular gloves wet.

Thanks Jayne.

These look to be a great glove for "those days", particularly "those mornings!" when all is wet and cold.
I'm adding them to my wish list.

As far as dexterity goes, do you recommend sizing down a peg as with the Wells Lamont 1132 glove you endorsed a few years back? Those gloves and that advise have been fantastic. Thanks for your blog and best wishes.

These are nice for those cold and wet days. My only problem with them has been the fact that once you sweat in them, it can be a while before they dry out. Perhaps putting them by the wood stove could speed up their dry time.

James---Going smaller might be the way to go if it will fit. The substance seems like it would have a little bit of stretch to it.

Dave---I agree that the insulated lining has the drawback of collecting sweat. Wearing surgical gloves underneath will really hold in the heat and sweat but you have to let your hands breath every 15 minutes or so.

Thanks for the comments guys....I really appreciate it.
