Good idea! Atlas gloves were the only thing I could afford at one time...

JaredC Yeah, I had to figure out the location thing... It turns out there are 2 different places to enter it, only one of which is visible to others. Makes sense.

As I said before, West Marine has nothing for kids. I'll probably contact Gill and/or Ronstan to see if they have size charts for the junior stuff. Thanks.

sailingdog Your location wasn't visible when I asked...

Jetskiing gloves might work, and are often available in smaller sizes. I personally use the JetPilot brand as my sailing gloves and work gloves around the house. They're tough.

I can testify that it wasn't listed earlier in the day. I thought exactly the same as SD, but didn't ask your loc, as he already had.

I quickly googled West Marine and found three locations in your area.

mxtommy Just a thought, ATV/offroad gloves are pretty similar I think, and might be easier to get. I know around here, there are 10-15 motorcycle/atv stores for our 1 boat store.

sailingdog It would help if you said where you were located, since someone located near you might have some good local sources.

I wish. The only option we have here is West Marine, and they don't have anything for kids in stock...
