    The liners with tricks up their, uh, sleeves?

    Outdoor Research Biosensor Liners are so much more than regular glove liners. The merino wool construction not only breathes well and wicks moisture, but it fights odor. Not only that, Biosensor liners are smart-phone friendly, so you can operate touch-screen devices without even taking your liners off.

    Light glove, but not durable

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I'm sure these are fine as a liner, but they tore and ripped within a few days of use while hiking.

    Hi Russel, I am so sorry this happened. Will you please reach out to warranty at OR and return them so we can get you a new pair, but also so we can see what happened in production. It helps to make us better! I will tell you that this is an anomaly for OR, but please know we will take care of you! Thank you, Leta OR Rep

    Great Liners!

    I just got these for my husband and he LOVES them! They fit great, and are extremely versatile for less cold days as a lightweight glove, and for extremely cold days as a liner! The touchscreen capability is great too

    Thanks tons for the great review! I hope he enjoys them! Leta OR Rep

    it's alright.

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size

    Fits very nicely, but the touch doesn't work very well when using your phone.

    Sorry about that Max. I will pass on to OR! Leta OR Rep

    nice light liner

    this is a nice thin liner glove for ski touring. great that its wool so it keeps you warm even when wet. my only complaint would be that they shrunk a fair amount after only a few days of use.

    Thank you for the review - I will pass it on! Leta OR Rep

    Ripped on day 1 review

    I thought the photo I posted below would be tied to this review-- anyways. The gloves ripped the first day I used them... not only did they rip on the first day, but one of the gloves ripped literally the first time I put them on when we started the hike... by the end of the day both gloves ripped and the logos started to peel off.

    Thin but alright as a dedicated liner

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size
    Size BoughtLarge
    Weight209 lbs

    I found these gloves too thin to be used on their own. As a liner they did add some warmth which was nice. The material/crafting of this glove makes me question how durable it will be and other reviews seem to echo this. I found the sensor tips to be just ok, they work for general phone interaction but aren't quite refined enough to type out a text for instance. All in all I think you can get a better glove for the money.

    Hey Chris, This glove was designed as a liner glove, so not specifically designed to be used on their own. Thanks for reviewing, Leta OR Rep

    Not Durable, holes and shrank

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I used these clothes for about 5 days as a liner for my Outdoor Research ski gloves while backcountry skiing. In this time I got a dime sized hole in each glove. One in a finger tip; one on the back of the hand. Also, these gloves shrunk to the point I cannot wear them any longer just from the moisture of melting snow and sweet in those five days.

    good as a liner

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I bought the gloves as a warmth liner inside wind-resistant gloves while riding my motorcycle in the cold (above freezing). The combination worked well for me. I found the size (XL) to be appropriate

    Good gloves but a bit thin

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:Runs large

    These gloves are very soft and thin. This is good if you need to fit them inside other gloves (I have to), but if you wear them alone they quickly become too thin and cold (in 0 degree Celsius windy conditions). The smartphone fingertips work very well. I bought a medium but could have used a small.

    They work

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size

    I've tried a few liners that were supposed to allow use of a touch screen but I've always been disappointed with the results. These gloves have changed that. When using my phone or Ipod my fingers were just as accurate in the gloves as without which was really surprising. They also wick moisture well and dry very quickly without a weird smell filling the hotel room. They do have a loose knit but I think that makes them able to fit a wider range of hand shapes and sizes. The only downside I've seen is the loose knit does get caught in the velcro of my shells so I have to be careful of that.

    Loosely weaved, no wind protection

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size

    The good: touchscreen finger tips work great Bad: Like a pair of glove grandma would weave. Loose wool weave, snags easily and threads start getting pulled out. Too bulky to make a good glove liner. Provides almost no wind protection. I like having liners that let me make quick gear adjustments on summit without freezing fingers.

    Knitted, Patrick, not woven. Big difference.

    Texting with my gloves on

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    Fit:True to size

    All day! Seriously, about 12 hours of the day I am usually outside at a resort for work. This has been a godsend for my fingers. Usually use my phone for some texting and photo ops and music and I have been craving some warmth for my poor little digits. The picture led me to believe they were going to be a little bulkier or thicker or something , but they are indeed skinny liners. With GREAT bio sensor/smart phone compatibility. Very impressed. Thinking about ordering some pairs for friends and coworkers as a holiday gift.

    A good liner or 40 degrees + glove

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size

    I bought these gloves to wear during the winter when dressing a bit nicer while not wanting to wear a bulky set of gloves. The craftsmanship of the gloves is really professional and they work great while using your phone. They also fit very nicely. I was hoping since they were wool that I would be able to wear them when it got a bit colder out (under 40 degrees), but these are definitely liners and could use an outer shell to block the wind. I still like the gloves and wear them all the time, just wish they blocked the wind a bit better. I have not used them as a shell yet but I am excited to see how they perform! Given their quality, I'd buy OR products again.

    Good, Warm Glove

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:True to size

    These gloves, being seamless, are naturally good for retaining use of your hands. They are also very comfortable and, despite appearing slightly bulky, actually work better as liners than some of my other gloves that are actually intended to be liners. Not all touch-screens require the stainless-steel-woven fingertips in order to work, but many do.

    gloves

    Pretty good, works decent with a smartphone (though i didnt really test it that much) and good to wear under another glove for some extra warmth.

    These are really warm. They have a pretty snug fit.
