What improvements have been made to these gloves?
Silk MT500 liner gloves have been continuously improved, thanks mainly to customer feedback.
The improved comfort of these liner gloves is thanks to your feedback, giving better support once your arms are moving. It's also thanks to your feedback that the elasticated section at the wrist has been extended for greater comfort and the touchscreen compatible section has been redesigned to be more effective.
How to properly protect your hands from the cold
By applying the layering principle, you can optimise the insulation of your hands. Consequently, by wearing liner gloves in addition to gloves, several air gaps are created around your hands, which provide effective insulation from the cold. To achieve this, the gloves must be big enough not to compress your fingers. This is because the compression slows down the blood flow in the fingers, which prevents them from keeping warm.
How to keep your hands warm with the right clothing
When active, the body generates heat which is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of your clothing. If the clothing is inadequate, your body cools and the blood flow to the hands and feet drops in order to keep your upper body warm. Your clothing can therefore play a role in keeping your hands warm.
What does the dexterity of a glove refer to?
A glove's dexterity corresponds to its ability to handle objects with ease. Our liner gloves have been scored in the laboratory on a scale from 1 to 5. The closer the score is to 5, the more the glove can handle objects in the same way as bare hands.
The dexterity of these fleece liner gloves has been rated 5/ 5. In particular, we tested how easy it is to get a jacket on and open with these liner gloves.
Recommendations for use
Although silk is a natural fibre that has many benefits, it is delicate. That’s why we recommend you use this model as liner gloves, worn under a pair of gloves.
Avoid wearing them on their own as gloves to prevent premature wear, especially during sports involving intensive use of poles such as ski touring, cross-country skiing or power walking.
These gloves do not protect against the spread of viruses or microbes.
