New Thin rubber coated gloves

Similar to the original Atlas gloves there are new gloves out that are much thinner. There are pros and cons to these.

Pros:
Much thinner so they aren't as warm
Still have great grip and are much more comfortable
Easier to manipulate knots with gloves still on since they aren't as bulky

Cons:
Tend to wear much faster
***Safety Hazard for novice climber*** The thinner glove can get sucked into the Blake's Hitch during descent. I have had to literally rip the glove out of the knot to free it. For a novice climber this could be scary so I recommend not using the thinner gloves.
