The construction and fit of these Gothic gloves is pretty solid overall, and they are rather comfy to wear. Unfortunately, the merino wool they are made out of seems to be more prone to snagging than my other merino garments (Icebreaker products) do, and they don't seem as tough as Powerstretch does. I feel as though I am going to tear them apart by accident sooner than later. These gloves are much thinner than I was expecting and are really only suitable for 32+ F days with no wind standalone, or as a liner.
On the positive side, they wick and cool the hand amazingly and feel just wonderful to wear.
Overall, these are a perfect wicking liner for a shell glove or mitt, with a little less insulation than a Powerstretch liner.
