these gloves are very soft, no wonder they are called butter.
that softness comes at a price, don't even think about putting your hands near velcro, the gloves will stick to the velcro and fray.
on the good side they do keep my ands a slight bit warmer and much drier.
I've been wearing them under my mountain biking gloves (fox digit) and will wear them under my alpine gloves (marmot aerial) this weekend.
So far so good. I will comment on both the butter and the aerial when I come back from my trip.
I bought these in preparation for a two week Army Cold Weather Leader Course in the Alaska winter. They performed exceptionally as a liner. I would often remove my outer gloves or mitts to perform certain tasks (like tie knots or adjust my ski bindings), and these gloves worked great. Unfortunately, some time after the course, I tore a hole in one of the liners when putting on crampons. But that was my fault. The liners are awesome and still mostly usable, despite the small hole.
I would like them to be warmer, but I do like them. I bought them to go under a pair of uninsulated leather gloves for warm weather skiing. They do a good job in that role, but when it's real cold outside you need to get more insulation than just these liners.
The fit is good and I have short, fat hands. So they stretch well and the size guide was a good help.
I use these with a light Black Diamond glove on the cold days and I can use the gloves by themselves for the warmer days. I can shed the outer glove and still operate my camera with these.
I've had these for 2 years now and they are holding up great.
Wanted something thin with a snug fit to use by itself when it is a little chilly outside. These fit the bill just right. My only complaint would be the stitching around the fingers on the inside of the glove. Something this thin should have a lower profile stitching.
These are the most comfortable pair of mild weather gloves that I have owned or they can be used as liners. The material is a soft feel and fit snug.
The downside is these are fragile when used as stand alone gloves. They will not take much abuse.
Great baselayer glove under warmer water proof gloves for skiing. Wore them under the heli hestra in -20 wind chill in CO in Jan and fingers didn't get cold when everyone else's did. Also may be good for running.
Although very light, also very breathable.
Seams are very streamlined and low. No problem using keys with these on.
Fairly cold in these Michigan winter temps by themselves.
I bought a Large and I have fairly skinny fingers. They fit great!
Thin but warm. fits great as a liner. A little thin to use by itself in really cold temps. Also works with touch screens! I went a size small to easily fit under my gloves.
I got these to replace my last Mountain Hardwear liners and made the mistake of not seeing them in person before buying. The pros: very warm for such a thin glove; very soft; snug enough to fit under an outer glove comfortably. The cons: The flat seam stitching on the outside (which may be entirely ornamental) is already beginning to fray and it's only been a couple of weeks of mostly around-town use and a few days of backcountry. I don't have much hope these will last but a few months. I'm a bit dissappointed in Mountain Hardwear-- their stuff use to be better quality.
I purchased these gloves last week and have been generally satisfied. I used them as liners for my half-finger road biking gloves in the rain and wind 2 weeks ago in Salem, OR for a race and they worked perfectly well. Unfortunately, then began to fray when I was trying to take off my velcro cycling shoes as the gloves stuck to the velcro. After a quick run through the wash and drier they were back to norma but I will have to be very careful in the future not to get them stuck on things. I have also used the gloves for running in colder weather and have been very happy. They kept my hands very warm but not sweaty on a recent trail run in cold, windy weather. As long as I'm careful, I feel like these gloves will last a while.
I bought these gloves to line a pair of OR outer gloves, to hopefully give them a bit of warmth.
They sort of worked, they weren't particularly toasty wandering from between our chalet and the various bars and restaurants in Niseko, but they weren't useless either. Possibly i needed more air-gap, or a more serious liner for this weather.
Where i did find them handy, was on their own they allowed me to still use my camera, and protected my hand from the worst of the cold, even in Sapporo - which tended to have pretty bad wind chill. Between shots i could shove my hand in my jacket pocked and it stayed pretty toasty!
The gloves did what they were supposed to and were very, very comfy, but the stitching came undone in less than a season of use. This wouldn't have bothered me that much, but I hardly used them and they still came unstitched. Not up to normal mtn hrdwr standards. I'd give them another shot if I saw them on sale, though, they really were nice and soft (buttery). Maybe I got a bad pair.
These glove liners are very comfortable and great for hiking in, but the stitching catches every little bit of velcro it touches. I have only had these for a day and I don't think they will last the rest of the season, velcro really pulls the thread apart.
