Sailing Gloves

So Home Depot has 3 packs of fingerless sailing gloves for 9.99. Ok well they are work gloves and I cut the fingers out. Found them in a cardboard bin just out in the aisle. Click image for larger version

Re: Sailing Gloves

They seem to be missing a fancy boat clothing manufacturer name.

Re: Sailing Gloves

jhnhll, Ironic as I just bought a package of 6 pairs of palm rubberized, elastic mesh backed, work gloves at Sam's for $9 to use as driving gloves. After wearing them for a trip, have decided to take a package down to the boat as well. The only defect was the one noted above by Windward Princes. George

Re: Sailing Gloves

That's what different color sharpies are for. You can even start your own brand

Re: Sailing Gloves

Hey, don't give HD any ideas. Otherwise before you know it they will slap a boat picture on the package and put them back on the shelves at $29.99 each.

Re: Sailing Gloves

They don't have the Velcro at the wrist, but at 3 bucks a pair I decided I could make them work

Re: Sailing Gloves

If you only snip slots on the fingers then you have the very expensive winter veriety
