I have been in a couple of garden glove group buys. These gloves are really good knock offs of the Atlas 370s that cost a little more than $2. for each pair. These were $6.99 for 9 pairs (regular, $9.99). They were getting their garden stuff in this week.

I agree I saw these at Costco and picked up a set - it's a great price! Last year I bought some similar ones there, and they're still in really good shape. I figured you couldn't go wrong for 6.99! Hurray!

I actually pick up about 4 packs a year. Some for me, some for Mom!

This is firstyear I've seen the one that actually resemble the Atlas ones that I love. I did buy some one year that cracked where the rubber/plastic coating was applied on the fingers.

Noticed that they were only in medium size for little ole ladies like me!

I've been buying them from Costco for a number of years. For the price you can't go wrong. With leather gloves I was always taking them off. With these, I get a tan from the wrist up because I rarely take them off.

I'm still Team No-Gloves here. I have brand new pairs of Atlas that haven't been touched in years.

I used to go without gloves, but we have lots of critters who come into the backyard and leave us little "presents " in the garden beds. Raccoons carry roundworms. I keep my gloves on.

Best thing I discovered last year was baseball gloves. They are cheap, supple, and tough. Sure beats the older leather or rubber gardening gloves!

Another hint. A mailbox is a great place to store hand tools! Stick one on a post near the garden and you won't lose them.
