The Atlas Xtra gloves have a thin coating of blue latex rubber on the palm, which extends to cover the knuckles for added protection on the back of the hand. They have the same ergonomic design and fit found in the regular Atlas gloves.
Extended coating adds back of hand protection.
Seamless knit liner and ergonomic fit.
Machine washable - will not shrink.
There's nothing worse than digging in moist soil with gloves and having your hands get wet. That doesn't happen with these gloves :-) The latex covered fingers keep my hands dry all day in the garden!Review by AGB (on 2/7/13)
