Rated 4 out of 5 by from The perfect merino hand base layer! As with all the Rapha merino base layers, the Merino Liner is no different. Layered with my Rapha winter glove or my Merino Glove the liner gives me that extra warmth on my cool morning & evening rides. The ability to remove them when the ride heats up is always great. A few suggestions i do have is that the Merino Liner cuff should be thinner, longer and tighter so when layered with the other gloves the cuffs on all the gloves don't become too bulky. The cuffs should be staggered with the liner the longest. Still an awesome glove and recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great gloves, just not for cycling I love these gloves, but they're really best for keeping your hands warm on a walk. Using them under other cycling gloves, as they're meant to be warn, has still left the palms pilling in under two weeks of use. The wrist and fingers become warped after a few on/off cycles. Not durable enough, unlike all other Rapha merino that I've become accustomed to. I'm afraid that in another two weeks the gloves will be completely worn away at the palms and they'll be out of commission. Unfortunate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are on the fence, just get them I have used rapha gloves for a few winter seasons and always wondered if the liner was needed. I recently purchased them and the answer was immediately yes, the are needed. The merino liner adds the excellent body temperature regulating qualities to whatever gloves you are wearing them under while not adding bulk to the overall glove paring and do not bunch up. Adds a few more degrees of use for any glove worn under.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Base layer is as base layer does As with my merino base-layer, the merino glove layer provides additional warmth in spades. It's exceedingly well crafted and feels luxurious. With that said, I would definitely only use this as a base layer and not as a light glove – The fine weave of the merino wool makes it quite slippery on it's own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent gloves but somewhat pricey When it comes to Rapha I usually don't complain about price (or anything else) as you definetly get what you pay for. These gloves, however, seems too be a bit flimsy for this price meaning thatvthey are an excellent pair of baselayer glover for about 15£ too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Merino liners Works great with the winter gloves which I bought in the bundle. If you are not sure how cold it is stick these in your jersey pockets and later if its too cold stop and pull these on under your winter gloves....cosy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm hands First ride today with the Merino liners beneath Winter gloves. Only down to 7 degrees but very wet and windy and couldn't have been better. Warm dry hands after 2 hours.

Hi, I've a pair of large winter gloves, what size of the liners should I get to fit the winter gloves? Thanks

Asked by: Scoop
Hi, please order the same size, large, in the merino liner as well. The merino liner is a very fine grade wool and there is no need to size down or up when pairing with the Winter, or Deep winter gloves.

I wear an XS size winter glove and I am wondering if I should order these in the same size XS or size down to the XXS size?

Asked by: sean87
Hi, We would suggest you order the XS for the liner glove. We do have a 90 day free returns period should you need to exchange
