        The Short Circuit Glove by Saga fits in an odd niche for a glove. It is too lightweight for anything cold or wet, and too heavy to really be a liner for a heavier glove or mitten.

        The design and style of the Short Circuit is great I think. It is definitely unique and I love the robot hand look on the palm. It is a tight fitting glove with some major grip.

        Once you get past the design and style though, things start to fall apart. Mine already show signs of wear after only 3-4 uses. Velcro seems to rip the grey neoprene up pretty quickly, so don't let yours touch any!

        Additionally, they soak through quickly when in contact with even the driest of snow if you do not brush them off immediately. They barley cut the wind, and really provide very little protection from the elements. I would say their intended use would be 40F+ bluebird days.

        If you thought like me, that you could use them as a liner for a mitten, you would be partially correct. They do function as liner for mittens, and when combined with them, they make for a hell of a warm hand, but because of the thickness of the neoprene, even with the largest of mittens you feel like you really should not be using them as liners either. On top of all that, touchscreens like your phone work very poorly with them. You can make it work but you will be very inaccurate and have to press quite hard to make things happen.

        I honestly cannot recommend the Short Circuit glove for any purpose other than extremely warm weather. Good for that, not for much else.
