Garden Gloves Worth Trying

I first became aware of these gloves when I read a post where a favorite blogger, Mr. Brown Thumb, had reviewed them. I really wanted to try a pair, so I contacted Alice Strong at Garden Basket and proposed reviewing their gloves here in exchange for a complimentary pair. May I present the Atlas Glove! These folks at Strong Marketing have several nifty products, including Seed Ballz (I've been wanting to make some of these myself, but theirs look to be done very well!)

The gloves are soft and stretchy....

....and I found them terrific for weeding. Great dexterity and sensation, and the rubberized tips really help me grip the weeds.

I could even handle seeds!
The pair I wore are a size medium, which I usually wear in women's garden gloves. These were just a tiny bit loose on me, so small would have been better. But for performance in the garden at a great price, the Atlas Glove is a perfect fit!

Disclaimer: Strong Marketing gave me these complimentary gloves in exchange for a review. The opinions expressed here are honest and all my own.

Cool beans.

I still haven't found my lost pair and my replacement pair got thrown out by one of my sisters.

I love these gloves. Glad to hear Alice gave you a pair.

Hi Lisa, I love the nitrile gloves--you don't lose your sense of touch but your hands are protected. They last a really long time, too, which got proven out when I gardened for a living. I love them! (Oh, wait. I said that already.)

Thrown out?! That's a least the replacement cost isn't too high. I'm really enjoying them too. Wet or dry, they work great!

Monica-Glad to hear that they last, I haven't had a chance to wear them out yet! :)

Well, heck, now y'all have got me wanting my own pair. :)

You won't regret trying them, especially at the price: $6.95!
