    *Medium thickness on the dish glove. Not too thick, not too thin.
    *same size Atlas/Power Grip gloves as you normally use or a size up if you are normally right in the middle of sizes without dish glove
    *Snug, but not tight fit
    *Rubber bands not even twisted once. The idea is to slow water transfer, not stop it
    *Even one twist on the rubber bands will cut blood flow WAY more than you suspect. Avoid

    We found an Atlas glove that supposedly belonged to @Ram in Spring Canyon.. or maybe it was Siren....
    Did it actually end up being yours?

    Nope. When Sonny returned it and I said not mine. He had a skeptical look on his face so I brought out 16 gloves from my car, all XL to sorta prove the L sized glove found was not mine.

    Has anyone tried "cold" canyoneering in either of these pairs of gloves:

    1) Atlas Glove 460 Atlas Vinylove Cold Resistant Insulated Gloves:

    Basically, rubber-coated "waterproof" gloves with acrylic liners . . .
