Thin, warm glove liner

I have been looking for good warm, thin glove liners to wear under my Sealskinz lobster gloves. Most of the gloves I see online appear to thick to fit in the glove. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thank you.

Silk liner gloves, or for a little thicker: some merino liner gloves.

Or if neither of those satisfy you, some longfingered normal cycling gloves?

Much motorcycle gear/liners translate well to cycling.

picked up some r.e.i. liner gloves last year. think they were $14.99 or so. used them about 7-8 times in the last year on their own or in combo with
pearl izumi full fingered gloves and they've been perfect.

Can you say a little bit more about what your conditions are like in your area and what you're looking for? Because temperatures vary by region and people have different preferences?

I have light-weight Bontrager gloves that I wear until about 40F and then a pair of heavy Perl Izumi gloves for temperatures below that. I tend to avoid wearing gloves underneath my gloves because that can cut down on the blood circulation, which can actually intensify the cold sensation

I live in the suburbs of Los Angeles in the west end of the San Fernando Valley. The coldest temp I have ridden so far this fall is 36. My ride starts at 5:00 AM before the sun comes up. The Sealskinz gloves have done a better job of keeping my hands from freezing. I also have the tendency to get chilblains on my fingers and toes.

I don't know about SealSkinz. I've cycled one hour into 0F conditions and my hands were sweating when I took off the Perl Izumis. They are expensive, but they are worth it.

I know other members who do or used to visit here a lot think very highly of bar mitts.

None of those liners really keep you warmer. At best they just allow you to swap them out every 30-60min to remove some moisture. I've suggest getting some bigger shell gloves - like +2 sizes larger. Then wear some liners that will actually keep you warmer - I've had great luck with Black Diamond Gridtech (polartech grid fleece), which has some structure to force air gaps inside the glove. The Lightweight ones might be good for your current setup https://www.blackdiamondequipment.co...01033_cfg.html

Size is key: do not use your regular glove (size), go larger. My experience is that it is especially important that the liner is not too tight in the glove, allow the liner a little bit of air.

Size is key, liner: rather a bit tighter than too loose. Not a must but I do like that a liner kinda sticks to your hand and is therefore hardly pulled out when you take off your glove.

Another point of attention when choosing a liner is the length of its cuff.
Long is warmer, but sometimes an inconvenience. Maybe you have a "thick wrist" already because of your layering, or the sleeve has become too narrow to slide the liner in all the way.

TIP
On cool days, e.g. late autumn, I dare to use a thin liner with a thin somewhat wind-resistant full fingers glove. Because a winter glove is still too warm. So liner in the chilly morning, no liner (layer) on the way back in the afternoon when it is warmer.

My glove liners got bunched up quickly which was uncomfortable. I can't figure out how to use glove liners. I just use gloves that are good enough. I have lobster claw gloves which are pretty good for me.
