    The wool lining is slightly felted and soft, not scratchy. The fingers are a bit stiff, but they are becoming more flexible with use. The TouchTec leather (the black leather on the palm and palm-side of the fingers) really works - I can use my smartphone without taking the gloves off. Nice feature.

    These are really impressive. I come from a line of cold-handed nordics and these gloves are better than most. Just spent a weekend in a cabin in the mountains with activities ranging from splitting wood (the only heat for the cabin) to taking photos with my phone. The touch sensitive quality is really surprising for a thicker leather glove.
    Overall very excellent and worth more than I paid.

    This glove is very durable and I'm sure it will last a long time. It's not very warm though. Granted, it's still the dead of winter. However, it would need to be at least 25 degrees F before I would use them outdoors for extended periods of time. Would also be nice if they came in women's. The XS was too small and the S is too big in the finger length. But I like them enough to keep them!

    I know this is called a spring glove, but it is a little light. I would also say to order the next size up from your usual for men. Since this is a unisex glove, order bigger for men. The Patrol glove is a bit thicker and warmer - so decide how warm you want your glove to be and order this, the Spring for not as warm and the Patrol for warmer.

    I have owned many pairs of SmartWool socks, so I knew of their quality and decided to try their gloves. The gloves are very nice quality and offer exceptional warmth. They offer warmth and comfort, while still being stylish.

    Had to come back to this page to ensure they weren't marked as seconds. The girth & length is true to size but the fingers are VERY tight. I saw another review that posted the same issue. If you have VERY skinny fingers, this would make a GREAT pair of gloves!

    xs had extremely long fingers- too long even for my woman's medium hand. definitely sporty - I was hoping for something that could be used as a driving glove.

    First off, I returned mine as the sizing was off. I think these are made for folks with narrow hands and longer fingers. STP indicated a Medium fit a hand girth of 8 - 8 1/2 inches. I duly measured my hand girth at 8" and ordered a medium, which is what I typically wear in gloves. I could barely get my hand in these and the fingers were about an 1/2 and inch to long.

    That said, gloves appear to be well made and I love the bright yellow, to make them easy to find in the bottom of backpacks and bikebags.

    Bought my first pair of SmartWool spring gloves years ago. Best gloves I have ever owned. If I wouldn't lose them every so often, I would still be wearing the first ones I bought. Living in Wisconsin I usually need to wear gloves from December - March. These are lightweight, durable and efficient for warmth down to about -5F. They might be a bit expensive, but are worth the extra $$.
