Warm fingers, Finally!
January 22, 2010

I purchased these liners as a last effort to keep warm. I work at a barn and am exposed to all sorts of conditions and need to have complete use of my hands at all times. I also go from very active to inactive frequently. So far so good. I have actually been using the liners as light weight gloves! I have full use of my hands to open gates, undo buckles and other odd jobs without having to take them off. I LOVE the soft lining and snug fit. My hands never get sweaty or too hot after lots of activity which I attribute to staying warmer when inactive. Under my convertible glove/ mittens they are a bit too thick between my fingers and the seams in the fingertips are a bit thick and takes a little getting used to if you are doing more delicate things. But for everything they are doing, it's not a complaint, just an observation.

the best
January 24, 2006

Why is it something as simple as a lightweight glove is so hard to get right. Only patagonia makes something that works in my experience, and these gloves fit the bill. Not too tight or loose, no extra bulk, shape is correct, and the weight is just right for a chilly run in the 20-50 degree range. I also highly recommend the silkweight liners for 50+ temperatures. Kudos to patagonia.

perfect extra layer for the way-cold
August 23, 2012

I love to wear gloves for their dexterity, but needed extra warmth for when it is real cold here in Minnesota. These are perfect! I wear a women's medium and these are true to size- work great under my winter ski gloves- no bunching or squeeze to fingers. Fabric and workmanship are terrific and I'm thrilled!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Patagonia Gets It Right
December 14, 2005

The Patagonia EW Capilene Gloves are comfortable, warm, and well-made. Great fit that's not too thin nor too thick. Just the right "tweener" for cool conditions.

Excellent product, best ever
December 31, 2008

Gloves are heavier than any used in the past but not bulky at all. The extra weight does the trick. Used them under a gortex shell mitten to cut the wind and fingers were warm and dry for running, and snowshoeing in 18 degree weather.

Great quality but inconsistent sizing
March 21, 2010

I bought a first pair of these in size medium in 2007 and they were a perfect fit, comfortable and good looking - best gloves I ever had. In 2010 I lost one so I ordered another pair in medium, but it was way to small. Patagonia has changed the fit. I bought them in large and they fit better, but not as well as the old medium.

Patagonia glove liners. A must have.
December 23, 2007

My boys (husband and son-in-law) are in the elements everyday. And they could wear them with any pair of gloves they are so thin and light. Both would come home frozen, face and feet. Montana's winters can be brutal. These glove liners made a huge difference right away. Now if only they made sock liners!!!???

Great, but one problem
January 06, 2007

When these gloves arrived, I was thrilled with the fit, feel and quality. I took them skiing with me and couldn't wait to put them on under my gloves to stay warm. Unfortunately, the liners were too thick to fit in my gloves; however, I will definitely wear them by themselves when I'm not in colder temps, because they allow my fingers to work easily.

almost perfect
November 20, 2009

comfortable, well made and warm. bought the grey color and it is a little disconcerting. maybe a little creepy. just downright a weird corpsey look to them. but hey, they are liners aren't they? best liners for any amount of money.

another great purchase
November 15, 2005

I snowboard a lot and I find that sometimes during the coldest days of winter, my regular snow gloves just weren't keeping my hands warm enough. I find this especially the case when I would take my snow gloves off to do things that I wouldn't be able to do with bulky gloves on. Once my hands were exposed to the cold and the moisture of the element, they would be freezing even when I put my snow gloves back on. A friend suggested these Patagonia Capilene Glove Liners...... These glove liners were exactly what my freezing hands needed. They add an extra layer for warmth and best of all, I can take my snow gloves off and still be protected from the cold and direct moisture to my hands. These glove liners are thin enough to do detailed work, yet it keeps my hands warm. It works because my hands now are always in a pocket of warmth (Patagonia Glove Liners).

Fantastic Glove Liner!!
February 09, 2010

Fits well inside glove! Soft and comfy. Warm!!

very thin, very warm
December 29, 2004

I bought these glove liners for my husband, an ironworker, to use on the job. He normally wears work gloves, but they provide little protection against the cold, especially when the steel is frozen. He swears these liners are lifesavers – so thin they allow free movement, yet wonderfully warm.

Great Glove!!!
December 08, 2009

This glove fits nicely on my hands. You can feel the quality of the material. Great for playing soccer in cold weather.

I was very disappointed with how this glove "wore". I live in Florida and just needed a light liner glove in the winter-time. This glove developed holes after one season----I didn't use it all that frequently, and when I did, I was just wearing them "back and forth" to work (hospital).

Cons: Wears quickly

warm, comfortable, and versatile
October 17, 2004

These gloves were excellent for my 10 day expedition in the Sawatch Range in early October. These were the only gloves I had and they kept me warm in the cold nights and colder mornings. Although they are only glove liners they can still be used as normal gloves. They wicked the sweat away and kept me warm throughout the whole trip. They were great. Thank you patagonia and a special thanks to Altrec for the amazingly fast shipping.

Like a second pair of hands!
November 15, 2009

These glove liners are very comfortable - tight enough that you can still use your hands, but loose enough that they don't constrict. For somebody who has Raynaurd's Syndrome, these are ideal for colder Spring and Fall days. They will get a lot of use in the winter as an extra set of glove liners too. Thanks!

Adds extra warmth to ski gloves
March 26, 2011

I bought a pair for both myself and my husband, and we love them! The sizes (S for me, L for my husband) seem accurate, and the fit is snug. They have a bit more thickness to them than regular liners, which I needed, since my hands always get cold. They fit just right inside our ski gloves, which was my biggest concern - not a lot of extra room in them. They have lasted through two weeks of hard Rockies skiing and one washing with very little wear - hope that stays true after a couple of years!

Great Lightweight Glove
January 05, 2011

This is a nice running glove. Lightweight and snug fit. Good for aerobic activities.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Very Warm
March 07, 2005

Snug fitting soft gloves. Love these for late winter/early spring. I wear them driving to the Mountain resort. Also used them in the windy city Chicago. I love them! Highly recommended!

So far, so good!
December 22, 2009

After doing exhaustive research on Altrec and dare I say it, other sites- -I decided to purchase these glove liners to go inside my other 30 degree regulated gloves - and so far, so good! I believe I have Raybaud's Phenomenon, and it is integral that I have warmth for my fingers and toes.....looking into warmer socks next!

very well made
September 29, 2009

I bought 4 pairs as gifts to my friends who are weekend hikers in Asia. I tried them on, and they are very well made, and comfortable. One thing-- for my next purchase, I'd get one size smaller since they stretch well and fit better. ^^

Pretty decent
February 09, 2005

Seem to be decent liners, not sure they are appropriate for stand alone gloves, they aren't windproof.

Soooo Cozy
November 18, 2006

The inner fleece is so cozy and the wind proof outher lining keep your hands so warm. Great alone or layered for the really cold days. Great dexterity is the added plus so you don't need to take them off to adjust.

close to perfect
March 03, 2006

The thing I love most is that they truly keep my hands dry. When snowboarding, I use Gore mitts that get really damp on the inside. With these liners, the clamminess is almost entirely eliminated. And even when I start to feel a little damp, I just pull them out and they dry in a flash without the extreme chill factor. One concern is that the fingertips on my liners are showing some obvious wear after only about 6 days of use on the slopes. Hopefully, they'll last longer than other liners I've used.

thin and warm

Warm Liner!
November 30, 2009

Got these gloves simple because my hands get cold very easily. They are breathable, but warm. They allow for a lot of flexibility, even when using the cell phone. So far, I haven't used them as a liner, but will be when the whether gets really cold. Patagonia does it again!


December 06, 2010

I found that the glove was too short for my fingers and my hands are small. Overall it was still a good purchase since it does its purpose.

Works well
November 22, 2008

I brought it for my trip to northern china. The glove liner works well as the way it should. Thin enough without restricting movement (I can control every botton on my SLR camera with it on my hands), and keeps me warm. I bought another pair for my girl friend and she likes it too.

Verty Vestile Glove
December 06, 2004

Great Gloves. I use them for running by themselves and as a liner when needed. You can never go wrong with Patagonia.

Very Warm Gloves, but ....
November 13, 2006

For the past 20 years I have had at least 2 pairs of these gloves to complete my deer hunting glove needs. Like another viewer commented, "... these are the best gloves I have." I do not like bulky glove when deer hunting and these accommodate my preference unlike any other gloves I have worn before. With all this said, though, I rated this recent pair purchased as "Average," because on my recent trip to Saskatchewan on the 1st day of the hunt one pair's seam on the thumb split on the side and exposed the top of my thumb's knuckle. The gloves are well constructed, but just my luck I got a blim. I really hate to say anything negative about these gloves, because I think this pair must have been a "rare" defect. As for my old pairs, I don't recall having seams on the thumbs. The current version is a much warmer glove than the old ones I had. Despite the defective seam, I am a firm believer that this glove can not be beat for a light-weight glove.

February 02, 2007

They are exactly what I wanted...thin enough to allow me to write without taking them off...warm enough to protect my hands in low temperatures...well constructed with a comfortable fit!

Good glove liners
January 05, 2011

I can't speak to the durability because I haven't had them for very long, but otherwise they are as advertised. They fit very snugly and keep my hands very warm. They definitely warm up a pair of gloves that I bought mainly for the look, making them wearable in very cold weather.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

December 19, 2004

Finally, a pair of gloves to wear while driving to the slopes! They are so soft and warm!...:)

Great choice for running, x-country skiing and snowshoeing!
December 27, 2007

The material is similar to the original Expedition Weight Capilene. Thes gloves are great for keeping the digits warm, but don't expect them to hold up if you use them to work in.

Great Gloves!
June 03, 2008

Very warm even when used alone. Fit very well and allow full range of movement.

Just what I wAs looking for
September 14, 2009

I bought these to wear under a pair of Carhart work gloves in Antarctica based on previous reviews. Nice liners with a good fit.


Excellent gloves
November 05, 2005

I bought these to use as a liner in my waterproof ones for snowboarding on those extra cold days. Seeing as how the snow season's not quite here yet, I've been using them in the mornings when I go running and they've proved very nice. They keep my hands warm while still allowing them to breathe.

Thin, warm, and comfortable.
December 10, 2007

Excellent glove liners. My hands are always cold so I've been searching for a pair of gloves that keep my hands warm for quite some time. I found a pair that almost did the trick, but not quite - in my experience these take an already warm pair of gloves and practically double their warmth. I'm very pleased with these.

hard to beat
December 04, 2005

I needed some liner type gloves that would stand alone on cool days but were thin enough and warm enough to augment my ski gloves when it got serious outside. These fit the bill perfectly. They're thin, easy to put on and take off, and very soft. Typical Patagonia quality.

Really like them.
December 12, 2009

exactly as ordered. Fits snug around the wrist to keep the cold out.
