These Atlas “Touch” Gloves are my first pair of gardening gloves to last an entire season of heavy-duty use.
Any gloves that didn’t get worn out, probably weren’t worn. Like most gardeners, I start out with my gloves on, but about halfway through the gardening tasks I take them off. Sometimes it’s to get a better grip on a teeny-tiny weed or it’s because the gloves start to feel uncomfortable.
Then I forget to put the gloves back on.
However, that changed this season when I found the super-duper durable Atlas “Touch” Gloves.
I’ve put these gloves to the test throughout this spring and summer. They aren’t as attractive as they were they day I got them, but they’re still in one piece and the fit is just like wearing a protective second skin.
I put them on each morning when I walk into the garden and I don’t take them off until I’m ready to quit for the day. These are tough gloves with a Nitrile coating on the fingers and palms, but a nylon knit that makes them lightweight and breathable.
Because I fell in love with these gloves, I wanted to share them with other gardeners. So I tracked down a retailer and asked her to become the newest advertiser on my website.
Lisa Ziegler, owner of The Gardener’s Workshop, told me, ” We also love the gloves. We are cut-flower farmers and these gloves are one of the of the reasons I began a mail-order catalog in 2005.”
Lisa said she also gives presentations and when she mentioned the gloves to her audiences, gardeners told her they weren’t easy to find.
“One thing led to another and here we are. We only sell tools, supplies and seeds that we actually use in our cut-flower farm ourselves, which is a bit different than most retailers.”
I’m pleased to have The Gardener’s Workshop advertising Atlas “Touch” Gloves on my website. They come in four sizes and six colors…and Lisa’s offering them at a special price with FREE shipping to WesternGardeners.com readers.
