First impressions

Straight away, the Rab Flux Liner Gloves feel durable and well made, and the soft fleecy lining inside is a treat to experience in cold weather. The thicker, double-layer cuff stops wind brilliantly, and it helps the liners to stay put under larger gloves.

These light, stretchy gloves are thin, breathable and very comfortable – wear them alone on warmer spring days or stick them underneath thicker gloves or mittens for bitter winter conditions, such as for ski trips or when hiking in snow. They have been treated with an anti-odour agent, which means you can use them multiple times in between washes without losing any friends.

Rab Flux Liner Gloves are also very useful when you’re camping or working outdoors and need to do more fiddly jobs such as looking after a stove – they offer good dexterity without you ending up with freezing hands.

In the field

Good liner gloves are the bit of outdoor kit you never knew you needed. We’ve been using the same pair of Rab liner gloves for a few winters now, and reckon they are worth their (admittedly low) weight in gold.

Rab Flux Liner Gloves are unisex, and as they have some stretch we found that they do tend to fit pretty well. We’ve tried out various different liner gloves over the years, and while they usually perform in a similar way, the Rabs felt like the best quality for long-term use. The price tag is reasonable, too, adding to the argument that these are a very useful addition to any hiker, skier or camper’s kit bag. It is just a pity they don’t clip together for easier storage.
