The holidays are the perfect time to think of the outdoor enthusiasts on your list. Just in time for the 2008 season, West County Gardener has two unique gloves that are sure to please the gardeners in your household.

For Aspiring Gardeners

The new Kid’s Classic glove is the perfect gift choice for any aspiring young gardener. Ideal for both work and play, the Kid’s Classic glove is a complete replica of its adult counterpart down to the last stitch.

Constructed of the same 4-way stretch nylon mesh as the adult styles, the back is breathable and stretchy. The adjustable hook and loop holds gloves gently in place while also protecting small hands. The new Kid’s Classic glove is available in two colors, Berry and Lime, for $20. Kids sizes are small (fits age 5-6) and medium (for age 7-8).

For Outdoor Enthusiasts

West County Gardener Waterproof gloves can winter-proof hands against cold, wet weather. These insulated gloves work to keep you dry and warm down to 20 degrees. They are ideal for everything from cleaning out gutters and shoveling snow to skiing and snowmobiling. Just like a ski glove, the gloves are watertight and feature a three-layer construction of an outer-protective shell, an inner breathable waterproof membrane and a final brushed nylon lining. Additionally, the extra tall neoprene cuff works to keep out dirt, debris and cold air.

Like the West County Gardener Work gloves, these Waterproof gloves are reinforced for extra durability when a strong grip is needed. The Waterproof Glove is available in four colors for men and women: black, clay, olive and tile for $32.

West County Gardener is the industry leader in high quality, innovative gloves. The company offers a complete line of high performance gloves for all tasks and seasons including a thorn proof gauntlet Rose glove and a Landscape glove with Sure-Grip® reinforced pads for extended wear and better grip. The company combines technologically advanced materials, design, and engineering techniques once used exclusively by premium athletic apparel manufacturers. West County Gardener gloves are known for their signature snug yet comfortable fit. They maintain their fit, function and vibrant appearance even after multiple machine washings.

Beginning February 2009, West County Gardener introduces an improved version of its highly popular Work and Landscape gloves. Made from recycled water bottles, the new gloves are constructed with a high-tech spandex mesh fabric derived from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) beverage bottles that have been ground up and spun into recycled yarn. Each pair of the new West County Gardener Work and Landscape gloves removes one 8-ounce beverage bottle from a landfill.

West County Gardener, a San Francisco-based company, created the first high-performance garden glove in 2001. Designer and company founder Beverly Schor, a former sports apparel designer, created the gloves to last as long as her favorite cycling gloves which really take a beating. West County Gardner garden gloves have earned a loyal following of hobbyists and professionals throughout the garden industry.
