Why the Tags?
The gloves are fine...but why the huge tags on the INSIDE of the gloves. It bugs me when companies still do silly things. These gloves have 3, long, non-tearable tags stitched into the inside of the gloves. Why why why? You have to go and carefully cut them off.

Falling apart after a a few days of use
Like others here I was surprised to see these gloves start to come undone after a few days of use. I got these gloves to use underneath my pair of synchilla gloves. I'm seeing new frays everyday so I'm not sure if the issue is the gloves or the fact that I also use them as glove liners. I want to believe I just got a bad pair and will be ...

Torn up after single use
I generally love Patagonia products and have purchased many items from them over the years. I was very excited to receive these glove liners to wear under my ski gloves.

Nice walking glove
I was looking for a glove that was thin to wear during my daily walk. This glove seem to be exactly was I was looking for. Super thin material but stylish.

Love it except for the snags
These glove liners are very comfortable, and have a strap attached at the base which facilitates taking them on and off. The one problem is that the Velcro on my ski jacket, ski pants and ski boots catch on the glove liner fabric and causes snags. They still are very comfortable, but their appearance is somewhat diminished by all the snags in the f... Read Moreabric, which is why I gave it only 3 stars.

Good, Not Perfect
I bought these liners to wear as a single layer glove on morning walks and light hikes when the weather is between 30º and 50º f. They are a little less warm than the cotton gloves I bought for $3 at the gas station, but obviously the material is much better in damp or wet weather and with sweat. The construction is fine, although you can somewhat ... Read Morefeel the seams along your fingers and knuckles, which I would call fine but not perfect.

Even though these liners feel great and fit perfectly, they are garbage and started to fall apart after exactly 1 half day of skiing.

Hi Jill, thank you for submitting this review. These liners should be holding up better than this, so we have reached out to you privately about returning them. We're sorry these liners were a disappointment! Please contact us if we can help you find an alternative.
Perfect liner for mittens
Used these as a liner for a pair of Arcteryx Venta Mittens on a few ski trips. They worked wonderfully and kept my hands nice and comfortable (temps hovered around high 20s/low 30s). Having the dexterity of gloves with the liner but the warmth of mittens is a great combo. The touch screen capability works great from my experiences so far.
Already pilling and snagging after a month of use
I wear these gloves under a thicker, Gore-Tex pair of outer gloves and already, both liner gloves are pilling after a month. For over twenty years, I have loyally worn Patagonia clothing for base layers, mid layers, and outer shells, and I have never had Patagonia clothing disintegrated like these gloves.

I bought the gloves on a whim at the Patagonia store. Turns out they have become my go-to glove for every chilly situation.

Rocky Start with Great Fit and Comfort
I originally ordered a pair of these in size medium. The medium pair I received were damaged with one glove showing a previous repair and the other glove with a 1/2 section of material coming off of one finger. The damaged glove was just one snag away from showing a hole. One other thing I noticed was that the medium size did not fit the length of ... Read Moremy fingers or thumbs very well. So I opted to return them and replace with a large pair. The return process was not difficult and the large pair I received are new and I really like the fit and how well they work with my iPhone. I can actually text with them on! I recommend these as they are thin light and perfect as liner gloves worn below thicker snow gloves or used for cold days when going into town.
Stitching failed after 3 uses
The stitching along the cuff failed after just a few uses. The glove are also pilling after minimal use, which is cosmetic but implies a lower quality fabric. I have Patagonia liner gloves from decades past, with a lot of backcountry trips on them, that are in better shape than these are after a few days walking around the city.

Fragile But Handy.
I bought these as a thin layer to keep my hands warm while hiking in the springtime of Patagonia. They worked out perfectly. They are thin and tend to rip a little too easily but they are exactly what I needed to keep my hands warm when the winds were blowing. If it were any colder though these gloves wouldn't have worked.

Stay away from velcro!
Fit and feel is fine but get within an inch of any hook and loop closure (velcro) and kiss your gloves goodbye.

I had hoped to find a liner glove with touch sensitivity that actually works.

Perfect fit for running
Ive been used to oversized, over cushioned gloves. And I was looking for a pair or gloves that fit perfect and lightweight. These gloves checked all the boxes! Im a runner, and these gloves have kept my hands, dry, and warm. Very happy with this purchase.
Threads coming loose after only 1 week
Gloves are a little large in the fingertips, despite ordering based on sizing measurements. But the worst part is, the gloves are already pilling and have many loose threads after only wearing them for one week. I expect higher quality from Patagonia, especially considering the cost of this product.
Response from PatagoniaNovember 11, 2021
Hi Edward, this could possibly a quality control issue and we'd be happy to help out with a return or exchange. You can begin either process here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Great Light Weight Glove
I needed a light glove to wear when I'm walking the dog on cool mornings and this was the perfect choice for those days with temps of 40-50 degrees. I also plan to use it as a liner under my heavier gloves during very cold weather. It's a high quality glove that fits my needs.
Great except sizing was a little odd
This glove is exactly what I wanted in that it's a thin glove that's easy to get on and helps regulate temps, either as part of a layering system on long rides or by itself in mild temperatures. My gripe is that the palm area is slightly too big for me and the fingers are too short, so it works okay but feels a little awkward. I don'... Read Moret tend to notice it once I'm going but the fit could be better for me. Potentially they'd fit great for someone with thicker hands and not as long of fingers.
Light glove to warm my hands
For slightly chilly mornings, these come in clutch. Helps my hands stay toasty in the car without incasing my hands in inches of cloth. This is important to me since I have RA and cold hands = stiff and painful joints. For phone use, you do have to make sure the pads are correctly placed or it wont work. Thats not a big issue for me personally and ... Read Moregenerally its difficult to use a phone with most gloves. Overall, Im super happy I got these and will enjoy them for years to come.
They do help cut some wind hill, and do work with touchscreens somewhat. Because that is inconsistent enough to need to take the glove off any time it matters, and because the material catches on anything (jacket velcro, etc), not the best pair of gloves but better than bare hands.
These are thin, well fitting, good looking gloves with a nice pull loop. The emphasis is definitely on liner, because they don't provide much warmth by themselves. Haven't had a chance to sweat in them yet, but suspect they would be very good at wicking moisture. The screen fingertips/thumbtips work well.
Perfect for their designed purpose
Great base layer gloves made from the same material as my Capilene base layer tops. Perfect under a pair of warm mittens when its really cold, and also good for those runs when you almost dont need gloves, or on a long run in the 40s when you might need them for just part of the outing. The straps make for a quick on/off motion, and the little smar... Read Moretphone pads work like a champ. Im 63 with long-ish fingers and these gloves are about a millimeter from being too short: if youve got extra long digits the XL might be a better choice.
I use these gloves as liners to a shell. Great fit and appreciate the "cord" for pulling glove on. I also use them as a standalone glove but they do not have sufficient grip for opening bottles, twisting knobs, or using a touch phone. Great colors. To improve, there should be a cord attaching the gloves (to connect - not lose - when glove... Read Mores are removed).
More liner than mid weight
Great Patagonia quality, not really a wear alone for warmth glove. Midweight is misleading, it is strictly a glove liner (of great quality). Not meant to be wear lone, unless its in 45+ degrees.
Response from PatagoniaMarch 3, 2021

Thoughtful but fragile
Ordered these as an alternative to wool liners because I thought they'd be more durable (my Capilene bottoms are nearing their second decade of service), but even trying them on I snagged them on my shell's Velcro more than once. The construction is great, the pull loop is really well designed, but I think the fabric will quickly look rat... Read Morety.
Perfect for cold mornings!
I ordered these for my husband who sometimes runs very early in the morning and it's dark and quite cold. I first ordered the Lg. and they were too small. It was very easy to exchange them for an extra lg. and I received them a couple of days later. The extra large fits him perfectly and he is so pleased with them! Highly recommend.
Solved a problem I have long had: how to keep my hands both warm and usable while running and hiking in cold and wet weather. I usually wear them by themselves, not as liners, unless it's really, really cold. Very smart, practical design. Fast-drying. Gloves supple enough to let you text-message or turn a page in a guidebook. A seemingly small... Read More innovation like this can make a world of difference.
Build Quality not to Patagonia Standards
I received these for Christmas, it's now January 6th. That is less than two weeks of wear. The left glove has a hole forming where the finger connects to the palm of the hand and the right glove has a hole on the tip of the thumb. That is unacceptable for a product at this price point, and speaks to poor quality construction. I know Patagonia... Read More offers the program where you can send items back for repair, which is great. The problem is the repairs are super backed up (not their fault), and it's winter now. What are you supposed to do when the item you planned on for this winter running season is toast after less than 14 uses? If you are on a budget and you count on Patagonia's gear to offer a solid value and reliability it's very frustrating when their stuff falls apart so quickly. It's not like all of us have multiple pair of running gloves we can fall back to when one fails. Very disappointed in this product. I'll be sending back in the Spring for repair. Would not recommend to anyone.
Definitely not warm!
These gloves are not warm. They will not keep your hands warm in temperatures below 45 degree fahrenheit. They are also not wind resistant. The upside, if there is any, is that they feel comfortable and are true to size. Sadly, I can't recommend this product.
