For some reason my hands are killing me this year. Would like to know if anyone has had succes with glove liners and what kind. I have used the overtons palm pads in the past. They worked pretty well.
What else is out there?

    I started wearing the Straightline palm pads a few years ago. They made a huge difference, especially when I was using the Masterline K-palm gloves, my hands would get torn-up. I don't ski without them now. I ordered four pair for this year and I'm about ready to start using the second pair.

    Thin kevlar glove liners from Grainger, etc. with straighline palm savers over them. I haven't had a blister issues since last July (and I have many consecutive days in a row of 2, 3, or 4 sets per day) when I went to this combination. I have used each level of protection individually with some success; but, together they are great (for me). I also use Masterline Pro Lock gloves.

    I started using the kevlar glove liners a few years ago at the advice of @MS. I also started holding the handle further out in my fingers. No problems since.

    Liner types are different. I ordered a box of liners for less than $2/pair online and they are fine, but they are a little stretchy and not as tight as the ones from Straightline or Masterline. Problem is, if you buy them from those guys you pay $20/pair!

    I switched to Radar Pro-Locks a year or so ago and haven't had a problem with blisters since. Forearm fatigue has gone down as well.

    The old underwear glove liners have always worked great for me. No blisters even after long layoffs.

    I'm a fan of Underware Ultra, sold by PC Racing. These literally cost about 10x some cheap glove liners, and probably "only" last about twice as long. But I'm the sort who hates to change anything at midseason, so the fact that these last a full season for me is worth it.

    I started using Underware about 15 years ago, and haven't had any hand problems since.

    What @skibug said. The kevlar glove liners are super cheap on all the industrial sites, Grainger,MSC, McMasterCarr etc. Since I started with the kevlar liners I haven't had an issue since.

    If anyone is looking for some good Dupont Kevlar Liners, I have 30 new pairs that I cannot use. They were sent as size small but I would say they are a men's medium. They have the red banded wrist but they are not the large ones with red band. I will sell them in lots of 10 for $33.00 total including USPS shipping. Send me a message if interested.

    @ski4xtc Do you mean they are actually the same size as the green-banded ones normally are?

    @Than, I am not sure. They are one size up from the blue wrist banded small's. These were just a little to small for my ski partner who normally wears a size large in gloves and liners.
