Arc'teryx Gothic Glove -
The Gothic Glove, is one of the most versatile offered by Arcteryx this season, designed as a single layer for warm days or a base layer for colder ones. It is also suitable for both sexes.
The Gothic glove is made of lightweight good old fashioned merino wool, which it turns out is the perfect base layer fabric. It is not itchy. It wicks moisture naturally. And it has a natural ability to repel odor.
The usefulness of the Gothic glove cannot be underestimated. Wear them under an insulating glove on extra cold winter days. Wear them on winter camping trips for keeping fingers warm inside your sleeping bag. Wear them on cool fall days for running and working out. The list goes on and on.

Positive Reviews:

These gloves are NOT waterproof or windproof. But they tolerate being wet in a way that's hard to believe until you get soaked in them.
These are glove liners, like a base layer for your hands. The amount of warmth is just right for aerobic activity, which means they'll be cold watching the sun set at the beach in northern latitudes. They wick beautifully, and the wind they let through is perfect for cycling. The warm-when-wet quality is ideal for kayaking, and unless the wind is howling, I don't wear other gloves over these.
I've had mine for about a month and a half. Many of the reviews here complain about shoddy stitching, but the two pairs* I've had have held up well in this regard. Mine are pilling a bit, though, from layering them under gloves on very cold or windy nights and using my hands.
Because they're so thin, these gloves are not at all restrictive. I can pick up an ID card from a table, and I don't give much tactile sensation up wearing them.
They seem to run small, though. While there isn't a sizing chart, it was suggested to go with XL based on the size of my hand, but these were small for me. A friend took them off my hands, I got XXL, and I've worn them every day since, in the Seattle cold.

incredible warmth-to-weight ratio. keep my wrists warm too, since the gloves go about 2 inches past the base of my palm. It's easy to pick things up such as coins and credit cards off tables. They are somewhat delicate, but I have had them for a year or so and they look and feel brand new. I might buy another pair just in case they stop making them. I primarily use them as liner gloves for cold-weather biking, and along with some cheap-o heavier gloves my hands stay toasty.

I'm 50 and have hated wearing gloves since -- well I was probable pitching them out of my stroller. I need some insulation for running in sub 20 degree mornings but my regular gloves are too heavy and soon soak with sweat. These are light, breathable and provide just enough insulation on cold mornings. I use these without an outer glove, and with their very light weight I could see the possibility of durability issues if used them differently but for keeping hand warm while running they're great.

These gloves are not only comfortable, they are super warm! I have typically very cold hands and I wear these gloves under my big mittens in the winter for skiing. They do the trick! I've also worn them in the spring time on the hot days as the only glove. Every person should own these gloves and keep them in their pockets for the cold days. They are light and small and fit in any pocket without being bulgy. They fit very true to size as well.

Meg Fogg at on 06/04/2007

I wanted a pair of really thin inner gloves to use inside big winter mitts, and these ones are perfect. They are super thin and so far quite durable, the extra insulation they provide in combination with my MH washerbaums guarantee to keep your hands warm in the most harsh conditions. They are real nice for sports activities on chilly days as well. Bonus: I kinda feel like a cat burglar whenever I put em on :)

Terje at on 01/24/2011

These are just awesome, I tend to freeze a lot and these were wonderful. They fit really perfect, perfect to wear under another pair giving you that extra airspace and the wool i superb with the thinsulate extra thing in them, remember wool detergent. They are not to be worn alone, but underneath another pair. Used them while away skiing and they were perfect for cold weather.

This is a great liner glove. Merino wool is the future, tell your friends. It's warm, it breathes, and its soft on the skin. These liners are very thin, they fit under my outer gloves perfectly, but they provide an astonishing amount of insulation. For comparison, these are about as thick as an Icebreaker 190 weight shirt. Highly recommended.

Picked up these Arc'teryx Gothic Lightweight Gloves a couple months ago. They're a great base layer when you're on the hill. No clamminess or sweating. They would be useless on their own though, unless you're walking around the house. Not remotely windproof - not that I was expecting this. Just making sure folks know.

Ben Preston at on 12/12/2008

These things are great, merino wool to keep them toasty warm on you, and not have you get stinky or sweaty. I would suggest making sure that you really measure your hand correctly with the sizing chart, because these things fit exact. I got the M, and I love them

Doug Hunter at on 01/16/2009

They work on my iphone, no need for special liners for that! I use them as liners in my Hestras, and they are great just as a very light glove as well.

Negative Reviews:

Although they are pretty warm for their thin nature, there are a couple of annoying aspects of these gloves that are very disappointing fr their price and the normally good name of Arc'teryx. Firstly, the seams are sewn together very thickly and come together right at your fingertips, meaning that most dextrous activities that would normally be the advantage of thinner gloves (e.g. tying shoelaces) become no easier than with thick gloves. Secondly, there is an unnecessarily huge information tag in one of the gloves, which I picked the stitching out of as I always so with these things. Oops! It used the same stitching as the glove itself, so now I have a big hole I need to sew up. What a tremendous pain in the donkey.

Arc'teryx is a great brand for gore-tex equipment and backpacks, but these gloves just bear the brand without living up to it.
They are thin, light and of wool, so far, so good.
However, Arc'teryx have somehow managed to waste the advantage a thin glove should have, namely precision and delicacy. As other people have mentioned the stitching in these liners have been put directly on the fingertip. I second that observation and it was much worse than I thought. It's just pure stupidity, and makes these a thin liner with an oven mitten's precision. I doubt these would even be sold without the little avian fossil. I'm returning these. I recommend you go for something else. I've had good experience with sealskin in the past.

Brille Jesus at on 11/26/2012

This is an addition to my previous review entitled "exactly what I was looking for". While I still feel that these provide and awesome amount of insulation for their low weight and bulk, I'm extremely disappointed with the durability. I have had to stitch up holes in almost all of the fingers, and I've been wearing these for only a couple of months. Good warmth and fit, poor longevity. When it's time to replace these (after I can no longer stitch the fingers) I will not buy Arc'teryx. For reference I am using these strictly as a liner underneath an insulated leather ski glove, not as a contact glove.

Neutral Reviews:

First, I will provide my short review of my own experience with these, then I want to address what I observe as some other reviewers missing the purpose of these gloves. These gloves fit nicely on my hand, and are a soft, thin merino that was very comfortable to wear as a glove liner beneath other gloves or mittens (I wore them under both this past weekend). I wore these for the first time this past weekend while hunting, and just noticed that there were tears in the stitching on BOTH of the gloves! I wore these for their intended purpose, as liners, not as outer layer gloves, so they were not expose to any harsh use at all. Of course, was EXCELLENT in dealing with this problem--took them back, and are sending another pair because I decided to give this product one more try before I move on to another brand of merino glove liner. If they keep tearing like this along the seams, it will be unacceptable to me. Arc'teryx has always made EXTREMELY high quality gear, so this surprised me, and I'd like to give another pair a try. Will certainly update my review
Now, I wanted to secondly address what I observe to perhaps be a misunderstanding as to the purpose of these gloves. I do not think these are designed to be worn as only a glove with nothing over them. I think these gloves are designed to be liners, and that is why they are thin and free of reinforcement material, have extended wrist coverings, etc. I wore them only as liners, not as gloves, and they fit comfortably under a mid-weight pair of windstopper gloves and also fit nicely under a pair of heavy duty mittens.

Lamarsh at on 11/25/2013

I wore these gloves for one day after I received them and there's already a hole near the thumb of one of them. Seems like it's a manufacturing defect considering the reviews before me. They are very thin, much thinner than I had expected, and somewhat warm. Not bulky at all... Overall, I think they're just okay.

for how light they are, they add some value.
