The Mercury gloves are fairly thin. This makes them a good option for warmer winter days but the lightweight build and lack of insulation means these aren’t the gloves to wear when it’s really, really cold.
The palms are made of 0.8mm thick synthetic leather and the backs are windproof and showerproof. The silicone grip lines on the palm are sticky and the fit is great, with no bunching and a positive feel. The snot wipe covers the thumb and half the forefinger, providing an ample area for wiping your nose.
