Awesome Warm Weather Glove or Liner
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased these for winter hiking and ski touring. My hands get so hot on the uphill and I wanted something to protect my hands from the dry air and blazing sun. These fit the bill and fit easily into my pocket for the downhill.
This are what you would expect from a liner
Kept my hands warm and toasty
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I paired these with Stoic leather gloves. Fingers remaind warm even in zero degree temps and heavy wind chill.
Love these gloves! I wear them under my goretex ski mittens and they keep my raynauds-ridden fingers toasty warm. They wick away sweat, are still warm when damp, dry quickly, and are thin enough to be able to wear while doing detailed gear adjustments without having to expose my fingers to the elements. Having tried many liners, these are the best I've found.
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).
Silk Is Soooo Warm
These are so thin but still so warm. Gotta Love Silk!
silk glove liners
These liners are nice the fit is a little big so you might want to go down a size.
Good but not great.
I bought these liners mainly because BC sent me a $20 coupon and I wanted some liners for super cold days. As soon as I took them out of the box, I noticed that one of the gloves already had a small tear in the stiching. Had I paid full price, I would have sent them back, but since they only cost me $6 after shipping, I decided to suck it up. They are very comfortable though, and performed quite well considering I have only worn them once and it was -12F. If the tear gets bigger I might think about sending them back, but for $6 I am very pleased.
These gloves were exactly what I wanted
Thin, wicking, warm (for their size), and fit well under my main gloves without bunching up. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Sizing note: I'm a tall girl, so I have long fingers but slim hands. Men's S/M fits well.
Purchased these as well as the Deluxe Thermax Glove Liner, and ended up keeping this pair! Silk liner is very soft and almost unnoticeable under winter gloves. Also felt like the seams on the silk liner were not as bulky as the Thermax liner. These definitely keep my fingers toastier than without a liner.
Fit well. Fingers are a little awkward with the seams at first, but have gotten used to it and doesn't bug me anymore. Fingers are just a tad long for me, but better than most gloves that I've tried. More of a size matter though. Liners work well and help keep my always cold hands decently warm.
Got them to stay extra warm under my ski gloves for those cold days. True to size rec. Wore them under regular cycling gloves...easily, and was plenty comfy on 50 degree windy day. Seem to be nicely made,and expect them to hold up well. Thinking they will be perfect to use on those cold days till the steering wheel warms up too! Would buy another pair
Silk glove liner - excellent fit
I got a pair and they fit perfect. They're thin without the fabric stretching out so as to leave holes between the fibers like the cheap glove liners do. I guess what I'm trying to say is it's a good weave.
But somewhere from the factory to me one of the gloves picked up a little hole in the back of one finger so I sent Backcountry an email telling them about it and a few hours later I got a reply saying they were sending replacements plus a label to send the defective ones back. Good product and good service.
Nice glove. Fit was a bit too small.
I have used these for snowmobiling and skiing, and they work very well. They are extremely thin, and fit well inside of whatever gloves you need them to. They are also good at adding that extra layer of wamrth that you need, while not taking away your dexterity.
The Arctic Silk Glove Liner is hands-down one of the best purchases I've ever made. I have notoriously cold hands in the winter but with these liners, those days are gone. The silk is extremely comfortable and warm and I can use them in almost any pair of gloves and mittens. I even use them inside my gardening gloves in early spring and late fall.
how big are the XL/L? is there a L/M...
how big are the XL/L? is there a L/M available?
They are definitely for larger hands but they really aren't bad on medium sized hands (that's what I have). The tips of each finger tend to be a bit floppy by not by much. I often wear them at home while I'm typing as I have a cold office.
Is this sized as a Men's or Women's glove?...
Is this sized as a Men's or Women's glove? The size charts are different based on gender. Also, it says L/XL or XS available -- but no L/XL is listed under women's sizes and no XS listed under men's.
(For example, I may be able to fit a women's large, but a men's small. But not the other way around.)
The two size options sound like a poor fit for you - take a look at The North Face Bamboo Liner Glove men's small or women's Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch Glove.
