- Q & A
Overall good, but thumb extremely short
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Good lightweight pair of gloves. Grip is unbelievable. Not very warm though, even in milder temps. Seems ok at blocking wind, but not what I expected. The sizing, however, is way off. Maybe I have strangely shaped hands, but the thumb on these gloves was extremely short. You can even see it in the pic. I couldn't even open my hand halfway. Thumb movement is highly restricted. Would be a great pair of lightweight gloves if they would just make the thumb about .5" longer. Had to send them back.
These gloves are perfect. Love the grippy palms and soft interior. Block the wind well. Not best for trying to keep hands warm in very cold temps, but work extremely well for their purpose.
A damn good pair of light gloves
There are lots of good glove liners out there, but many of the warm ones (thicker fleece) are bulky and many of the thin liners don't have enough substance when it counts. On days below 5 degrees, I pair these (thin, warm) with a pair of Kinco gloves (cheap, durable) and find hand-heaven. On skins up when windchill threatens the digits, these do the trick by themselves.
Very nice glove.
So these gloves are really great! I know that people like to write really long reviews on this site, but I like to keep it simple. You could use these gloves anytime that you would traditionally use a fleece glove. The advantage is that they will shed light moisture and have a fantastic grip. I have field tested these gloves and I would suggest them to anyone. They run true to size.
