Awesome glove. I'd been wearing a "breathable" glove on my 2 hour bike rides in about 40 degree weather. My thumbs and pinkie fingers got cold toward the end of the rides due to sweat buildup. I planned to use these gloves as a liner but used just these as my glove for one ride. My fingers stayed warm the whole time. I am impressed!! The wool is woven tightly and I'm hoping this bodes well for long term durability. (I've only had them for a few weeks)

super comfortable gloves
amazing how warm these gloves are, either alone, or used as liners. the dense ponte knit is the secret. wonderful light duty dress gloves, very classy looking. and did i say warm? for city use, they are dynamite. as a liner, which is what they were designed as, they are superb. i am a cyclist, and wear a larger knit wool glove as an outer layer, and have been good down to 30 degrees, which means 15-20 wind chill wise. i would love to find a light non insulated nylon over glove for these, they would be PERFECT for cycling in that mode. super product.

Excellent merino glove. Not particularly warm on it's own in colder temperatures, but excels in aerobic activities. I would recommend this glove for active wear down to higher freezing temperatures all the way up to 50 degrees. On their own, I would recommend not using these gloves to handle anything approaching rough use such as installing car chains. I learned the hard way that they are not a do everything type of glove as the threads can tear more easily than anticipated. They are best suited for jogging, hiking, etc. Work well for backpacking also where gloves are often preferable for detail jobs (setting up a tent, stove, etc.) when conditions get frigid. I've found merino to be the best material for next to skin applications and Ibex makes great stuff, this being a good example.

I recently got these liners, and thought I'd see how they work just by themselves. Well, they're definitely liners, not great for independent use. The pinky and thumb are a little long on me, but I could just have weird hands. Overall, they're a good product, the material feels and looks very nice, and they do exactly what they're supposed to.

The most amazing warm liner gloves ever
I suffer from Raynaud's disease which means my hands get very cold easily and quickly. However, these Ibex wool liner gloves kept my hands warm alone while hiking in 36 degree weather and even when I got them slightly damp! Without a doubt, these gloves are a perfect starting point to keeping your hands warm (and dry with a shell) so I highly recommend them to everyone with cold hands!!!!
