The best glove liners that I have used,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seirus Innovation 8013 Deluxe Thermax Winter Cold Weather Glove Liner or Lightweight Glove (Sports Apparel)
Glove liners should be paper thin but warm, fit snugly but go on and off easily, and feel comfortable to wear. This product fits the bill.
I have used lots of different glove liners over the years for skiing and snowshoeing, but these are my favorite. The material feels nice, and the liners fit like a "second skin" without being too tight. They provide extra warmth without making my main gloves a size larger or interfering with dexterity. There have been times when I would remove my main gloves for increased dexterity and sometimes the liners too. But not with this product, which fits just perfectly.
One of the reviews complains that the gloves have very narrow "witches fingers"--but for me that feature makes them stand out above other liners that I have used. Having such a snug fit makes for improved dexterity and a better fit inside the main set of gloves. But if you have very thick fingers, then you may want a different set of liners with roomier fingers.
Bottom line: This is a great set of liners that run true to size, so don't size up or down.
Update December 28, 2010: After using these for almost a year, I continue to really like them. One tip about these glove liners that I have discovered: If you use them in gloves that are too snug, you will wind up making your hands colder than without using them. The reason is that your hands need space to "breathe" and benefit from your body heat. So if you regularly use glove liners, be sure to use them in gloves that have "wiggle room" and don't fit tight like a second skin with the liners inside.
Update November 16, 2012: Still using these and still very happy with them.
Update January 24, 2014: Over the last year or so I have become a big fan of merino wool products because they keep you warm even when wet and never stink from perspiration. So I picked up on sale at EMS a couple pairs of Smartwool Liner Gloves, which I have reviewed on Amazon. They don't have the "witches fingers" of this product but still fit without excessive roominess and keep my hands warm. They cost about 50% more than the Seirus unless you get them on sale. I now use the Smartwool together will all my other merino wool products. But if merino wool is not a factor for you, the Seirus is an excellent choice and costs considerably less.

i'm on a quest for winter gloves that keep the wet and cold out but allow dexterity, so i wouldnt really want to get a set of gloves to put over these because i don't like taking alot of things with me that i have to take on, off, on, off. would these fit the bill? if not, could you point me in the right direction?

This not a stand alone item to keep the wet and cold out. You need to use this with gloves or mittens. I really can't think of a glove that has the same dexterity as this item.

Can you feel the COLD AIR threw your fingers. That is the problems I have from many gloves & liners like this. Do you have any problems like this ?

These are simply liners, so if you wear them alone of course you will feel cold air. However, if you wear them under gloves or mittens, you will not feel cold air. I just wore them the other day under a mitten shell while I was removing the snow from my driveway after a major storm. My hands stayed nice and warm.

Thank You Stephen Charme, for answering my question. I'm using the Manzella gloves a brand that I found at a Eddie Bauer Store 2 years ago. And they don't even do the work like gloves are suppose to. So I only use them in the Fall. So then somebody told me about the liners, I didn't think they would work. So since I saw your review this will be my next buy, instead of giving them away or to a good cause. Thanks again. Giggles 84 :}

this review is in the wrong place. it is obviously about glove liners but the product is "Heritage Extreme Winter Glove, Black" a full-blown cold weather gloves.

You need to read more carefully before posting comments. The product page specifically says "Cold Weather Glove Liner or Lightweight Glove." So this review is absolutely in the correct place.
