Just tried to order some of my favorite garden gloves, the atlas 370 gardening gloves, and looks like atlas no longer makes them Confused Sad
I did find some at a colse-out place and ordered a dozen . I don't like to change when I have found a product I really like.

Gee, a quick google search turned up lots of places offering the 370 gardening gloves (in lots of different colors, too), but the atlas site only shows these

Eeek.

Why don't you try writing to the company and just ask them? And maybe beg and plead that they not stop making them (if they have)? Couldn't hurt!

I found the gardening gloves just too bulky for my arthritic fingers, so I use surgical gloves. Cheap by the box and you just pitch them when you are finished. I began using them when I bred birds because I could never find a clean pair of gardening gloves...so I just went to the line of least resistance. Just a thought if you are looking to have to change. There are many kinds and sizes and strengths...thin, thick, the whole bit. Uline usually has good buys.

Hmmm, that's what I should use in my GH. The gloves I use for working outside are way too bulky for dealing with seedlings, but some of the potting soil bothers my hands. Good idea!

replied to this in antoher thread but will try to recap quickly here...

Manufacturer's site (SHOWA) still has them (search by number 370, as they don't call them "gardening gloves"): http://www.showaco.com/glove_search.php

Palmflex currently has free shipping on a dozen mixed colors: http://www.palmflex.com/atlas-370-garden-club-gloves-in-6-as...
I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris.
