great spring/fall glove
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The first thing you'll notice about these wool gloves is that they are made of a much denser, less elastic feeling material than most other wool gloves. The fit is just OK - the pattern used to stitch the gloves is very simple, seems like two 2D hand shapes laid on top of one another and stitched all the way around the edge. You can see this in the photos, where the fingertips look very "flat". Because of the cut and because they aren't very stretchy, they also fit a little baggy in the palm. However, these gloves are surprisingly warm. Perhaps the baggy palm helps trap more warm air inside, I don't know... but I've worn these on 4 hour road rides from 50F down to the low 30s and never had chilly fingers. Rating 5 stars because they are awesomely warm, thin, and cheap.
