Mourning the loss of one of my Swobo gloves, thereby rendering it only half as useful, I picked these up at a local LBS (PI Grip-Lite Glove). I know, I know. Not wool, but I wanted to give them a try.
Well, they're gloves and they do indeed cover your hands as advertised. However, the seams are pretty weak and I split the palm open on this last trip. I wasn't doing handstands or anything on them, just plain old touring riding and they split! I probably only had about 300 miles on these gloves.
To their credit, my hands were warmish. The interior material these use inside is sorta weird though. It made my hands felt like they were perpetually sweaty with this weird warm slick feeling. Eww.
Needless to say, I'm not a fan of these. I wish I had purchased them at REI so I could exchange them for some proper wool ones. Bummer.
