I am an inveterate (my wife says obsessed) walker, averaging 100 miles per week over 32 – 35 hours. I am also a Reynaud’s sufferer requiring hand covering once temps fall below 50F. And with each drop of 5 – 7 degrees I need more and more protection, from light weight through heavy weight gloves, with various combinations of liners and hand warmer inserts, all the way to battery powered electrically heated gloves. Yet no matter what combination of protection I use my fingers always end up cold, anywhere from uncomfortable to downright painful.
Several weeks ago, I read about your products on-line and, after a bit of research, decided to order a pair of your Ultra Liners. They arrived a week before Christmas and I’ve been giving them a thorough, real-world testing since then. Weather conditions during that time have ranged from bright and sunny to rain, sleet, and snow. Temperatures have been from 45F to 2F (with wind chill down to -11F), and averaging about 20F. And my time outside walking has been 57.5 hours. To adjust for the varying conditions I have worn light, medium, and heavy gloves in combination with the Ultra Liners. My test results: Your Ultra Liner’s performance has been 100% amazing, bordering on the miraculous! Even at 2F / -11F wind chill my fingers remained warm and comfortable for nearly five hours. This is truly one of those rare occasions where a product not only lives up to the manufacturer’s performance claims, but also exceeds the customer’s expectations as well. For me this truly is a life changing product and I thank you for it.
Now that you’ve given us Reynaud’s sufferers an incredibly effective and elegant solution for our cold, painful hands, might I suggest that you turn your attention to our feet and develop a line of socks and sock liners so that we may also enjoy toasty toes.
Once again, thank you.
