The gloves serve a primary purpose as a functional glove for me as an archery hunter who shoots fingers and uses a tab. Most gloves are too thick to use with a finger tab but the FL glove works great. The overall fit is fine and I wore the gloves in temps down to high teens last fall although I do keep my hands in my jacket pockets once temps drop below 40 ish degrees. The glove is not super durable and I’ve got two holes in the fingers and numerous threads that I continue to clip off. I’ve pretty much stopped trying to use the glove when using my cell because the “touch” is very intermittent and annoying-I just pull my glove off. Will be interesting to see if the gloves make it through spring turkey season.
Bought these to act as liners for late season hunting. I ended up wearing them a lot, almost the entire season. They are not the most durable, the first time I tried them on 2 tears formed where the fingers meet the hand. I contacted First Lite and Customer Service was great to deal with. Through out the season though I would find long threads hanging off the gloves. The 'touch' feature on the finger tips is handy when it works but in my experience they only work sporadically.
I typically wear a large glove these are smalls and fit alright if just a bit small. If I get them again (likely) I will likely order a medium.
All in all I wore these a lot and they still have life in them just not sure how much.
I ordered these in the summer of 2019 of perhaps it was a batch issue.
Really like it. It's not super durable, but that's not what it's for. Love being able to where a light glove and never take it off to navigate with my ON-X or other GPS apps on my phone when I'm in the backcountry. Perfect for its application. Great under a larger glove. Don't buy it expecting it to take a beating. Drives me nuts when people buy a thin merino glove and get bummed out when it's not a work horse. Use that frontal cortex when you buy gear and review it.
I wear these stand hunting. They do fine down to 50 or so alone, at which point I use them with a muff or put my hands my coat pocket to keep them warm. They fit very well and the touch fingertips work better than any other glove I've tried. I never have to pull the glove off to operate my cell phone. The one knock I have against them is they are not very durable and it doesn't take much to snag them on something, pulling threads out. If they could fix that and make them a little heavier they would be perfect.
