- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love the leather palms and I was actually pleasantly surprised with how warm these were. They seem to be a little warmer than similar weight liners I have. Before buying, I had heard the touchscreen fingers on these BD liners didn't work too well.. or at all. I found they definitely work, but the touch may require a bit more precision than you'd expect. A pretty minor inconvenience to me.
I bought my usual size and found I probably could have sized down and have been fine.
Thumb seam causes discomfort in gripping
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these before I started bike riding in the winter, and now that I ride in the cold winter of Berlin, they aren't really ideal. The seam where the thumb material attaches causes pain when gripping my handlebars. Also with the increased wind from riding they aren't terribly insulatory.
These are best used as every day gloves in near freezing temps.
