Worth it

I bought two pairs. Both wound up getting holes in them. This is to be expected of silk products, especially silk this thin. Despite this, I'm in for two MORE pairs -- these are fairly warm, wick moisture really well, and slide smoothly (almost 0 friction; handy especially if you're wearing these within other gloves).

I wore these once for skiing and the palms starting pilling already.
I also did not think these were very warm, but it could be that my outer glove was the issue (POW Tanto glove, not good for under 40F.

Certainly there are warmer gloves. However, these are about 1mm thick, so I don't think it's fair to compare them to most other gloves' abilities.

I normally wear these as liners underneath other gloves. Thus, if they get sweaty, I can switch to another pair. While snowboarding, I wear mittens for warmth. When I need to handle things (screwdrivers, phones, etc.), I take the mittens off -- these liners are sufficient for the 5-10 minutes it takes to handle whatever needs handling.
