An excellent pair of liner gloves. Nice, snug fit with narrow fingers so the gloves conform to the hands very well without being tight. There is a comfortable stretch. How snug you say? Although I did not buy them for this purpose, I can pick up my acoustic guitar and play like they aren't even on my hands. The texture of the fabric has a very close linear pattern much like one's fingertips. The strum hand is best suited by use of a pick but the fingerboard hand is extrememly accurate. Notes sound pure. Who knew?? I'm wearing them as I type this. Great job Merrell!
