    Mmm, merino.

    Wear the SmartWool Liner Glove alone when you're trail running during the fall, or layer it up underneath your heavier gloves when you're riding the mountain. Merino wool provides comforting warmth, feels smooth against your skin, and breathes naturally so your hand feels comfortable, not stifled.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Not a fan. Large and thick.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Maybe I just was looking for a different product, but this seemed to fit much too large and much too thick to be of any use for a liner glove. If I needed a stand-alone minimalist glove this may have worked. I found the wrist much too thick and returned them. Got a competitor's liner and it's been perfect under my gloves.

    no excuse for not buying

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for layering up on the cold days (my Arcteryx Betas are not exactly toasty), great dexterity and comfort when dazzling with zippers, cigarettes, bindings, phone. Wool quality is excellent. Silly not to have a dry pair in your pocket.

    The "Go To"

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had multiple pairs of these, and I always recommend them for a liner glove, or for running. I've run with these into the low 30s and had no problems, and my hands typically get cold first.

    Smarty-wool.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This might sound fabulously absurd, but I've got some sweaty paws so I purchased these gloves to wear underneath my ski mitts or while running to wick away moisture and provide some low-profile insulation. Thus far I've used them both while skiing and running and to say the least, they're doing a fabulous job in both categories and ultimately provide smart warmth and quick body temperature regulation when I begin to overheat. In hindsight, I would've gone with a size small but the medium gets the job done just fine.

    Great Cold Weather Liner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought these at mitten liners for the coldest days out on the ski slopes. I have perpetually cold fingers and have tried a lot of different options. These liners are really soft and provide a lot of added warm to my mitten system. They are definitely thin, and merino is a pretty delicate fiber, so you can't expect them to last unless they are only used as liners. I've had no problems with wear, but could see that happening if you try to use them as a primary glove.
    The fingers work well on touchscreens, and it's nice to have the added protection of liners if you're trying to mess with your phone on the chairlift.
    I've had 3 pairs of these and will continue to purchase them in the future.

    Hole after ONE use?

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    They fit great, but I barely had time to try them on, and I could already see a hole starting to form on upper part of glove, when making a fist.

    True enough, and after only a few hours of light use...the hole formed.

    Another hole was forming at the base of the thumb area, connecting to palm. BOTH of them were on left glove only.

    Quality is obviously not up to expectations.

    Hopefully the other Castelli gloves I ordered will be better.

    Hole after ONE use?

    Buying another pair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Held up pretty well to a season of abuse. The finger tips started to wear out towards the end of the year but I like them enough to buy another pair. They were great at keeping my hands warm whether I was walking around town or popping my mittens off to use my phone on the lift. The touch screen compatibility also wears out after a lot of use. They're not the last pair you'll ever buy, but I was happy enough to buy another pair this year.

    touch screen NON-compatible

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I owned the previous version of these gloves and they were great. They were light weight, but still warm enough on their own. They also worked very well with my touchscreens. This new version is sub-par, in my opinion. It is thicker, which makes the seams feel more cumbersome and uncomfortable, like those cotton finger gloves everyone wore as a kid. The thicker fabric apparently interferes with the electrical transfer between your finger and the screen because I have to push extra hard to make it work...if it works at all. Most of the time I find myself removing a glove to work my phone.
    Finally, as the other reviewers mentioned, the gloves do snag. Both of my pairs lasted 2 years each, which I would consider average for something that is really designed to be underneath another glove 90% of the time. I just happen to wear them alone 90% of the time.
    If I could advise SmartWool, I would tell them to go back to the thinner material, and also add silicone or similar material to the palms and fingers for grip (especially of electronics).
    Aside from those gripes, the gloves do about 80% of what they should, which isn't bad for $16.

    Keep You Warm!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Whether I wear them as a liner or stand alone, they always keep my hands warm. Also, they hold up when working in the snow and don't get damp very quickly. The only problem is that they snag easily.

    Gloves Don't Hold Up.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love SmartWool products and have never been disappointed...until now. I've burned through 2 pairs of these and on each of the two pairs (4 gloves), the thumbs blew out in a matter of days. And I don't have abnormally large thumbs or anything like that. They're simply not built to last....I do like wool liners, but the search will continue as these are too pricey to be constantly replacing.

    are these men's or women's glove sizes?

    The size chart doesn't say men or women, but I'm pretty sure they are in men sizes. I take a mens large size glove and these gloves in a large are just right for me. I really like these gloves and use them all the time. Especially like that they are touchscreen compatible.
