This is the second piece of Freeze Out gear I own, and another one I got on sale for just $9.99. Fir decades, I've been riding in the cold with old school silver ski glove liners. These are miles better.
I guess I qualify as an extreme tester because I ride in very cold conditions. Granted, I do ride a Can Am RT Limited with full fairing and heated grips, but my first test of these was at 38 degrees inside of Bilt winter gloves. I didn't even turn the grips on and my hands started sweating. Thank goodness these liners are quick dry.
My second test was on a 23 degree morning ride for Toys for tots. I put down a little over 50 miles that day. Heated grips set on low, and I still had to cycle them on and off to keep my hands from getting too warm. The secret is the wind blocking ability of the fabric in these liners. Try them on a windy day with no gloves, and you'll see what I mean.
The reason for only 4 stars is that they don't seem that durable. I've only had them for a few months and they already show signs of significant wear. But them at $10 a pair, it's not a major issue. I'll be buying another pair.
I got these liners to stop my hands from being Popsicles whiling riding in the winter months. I normally wear mechanics gloves they work good for me... I am using the impact mechanics gloves they provide an ok amount of Winding protection but with the liners together they make a huge difference! I also bought mine at the store.
The gloves are comfy as stand alone but not good as such for riding. May need get a size larger riding glove since the FO liner will make a snug glove too tight. Also hands still get frosty, but not as as bad as with out the FO liner.
I originally thought I'd use these liners with my insulated enduro gloves. The fit on those gloves is pretty tight, though, and my regular silk liners are about the best choice. Then I tried these liners on my deerskin road gloves, and the effect was magical. Now I have deerskin gloves with a windblocking, insulated, and removable liner. The thickness was welcome as the wind went after my fingers, and these liners did an effective job of keeping my digits warm even though they are about the first part of me that gets cold. Well worth the sale price!
While it is always nice to have another layer on freezing cold days, I have found these to be no better than any cheap glove liners. I simply recommend that you buy for cost and don't assume the higher price equals a better product. I give this a neutral rating as I don't feel like I'm simply out that money, but I would get the same results with a $1 pair from a surplus store.
I live in an area where the temps rarely range below the mid 30's. I'm originally from Michigan, so I'm accustomed to it being quite a bit colder than that in the winter months. So I do not need a heavy winter glove, but I did need something to block the wind and provide a touch more insulation. These were just the thing. Yes, your hands will still get cool over time. But that will happen with nearly any glove you could ever wear. Their contribution is that rather than 'Ouch my hands are so cold. If I rap my knuckle on something I'm going to tear up', you arrive more in the 'haha feel how cool my hands are!' and I harass my kids when I get home. In any case. For the price point there is quite truly no way I could feel morally ok with complaining about these.
