Green thumbs out there know that gardening gloves are a necessary evil when it comes to doing serious work out in the garden. While you need them to keep your hands from getting all cut up and filthy, the gloves tend to reduce grip strength and cause calluses.
The Bionic Gloves look to change that. They've been designed to give both improved grip and more comfort to gardeners, golfers, and equestrians who frequently complain about the crappy gloves they usually have to wear. By placing special grip pads strategically on the inside of the fingers and on the palm the gloves increase grip strength. Meanwhile, there are extra-stretchy areas on the back of the glove, allowing it to remain tight while having some give where its needed to prevent calluses. Now you have no excuse to not grow the biggest pumpkin in the entire county. Go on, get out there!
