Held Warm n Dry: how much will they stretch?

Just bought a pair of Held Warm N Dry gloves over the interwebs. Tried them on and they fit pretty well. Not super snug, but overall a pretty good fit. I also have a pair of powerlet heated glover liners that I will use with the Helds when it gets real cold out. With the liners on the Helds are really snug. I can get them on without having to push and pull or squeeze or anything like that, but they may be a tiny bit too snug to be comfortable. Will the Helds stretch out a little bit or is this the size they will stay? I don't really want to go to the next size up because then they will be too big when I'm not wearing the liners.

In general, gore-tex anything doesn't really stretch that much.

I've had mine for over a year, and they haven't stretched like held's plain leather gloves will. Same for the Rain Stars.

they don't stretch much.

I'm a perfect 9 in all things Held. I also have the Powerlet liners. They're too tight for me in my size 9 warm n dry(awesome gloves btw-love mine). I'm on the lookout for a pair of warm n dry in 10's. I think that is what will be needed to use the liners. They're pretty bulky.

Not much. Maybe 1/4 size after a year.

Thanks for the input. Sounds like I'd have to size up to use the Warm n Dry gloves with the powerlet liners. It makes me wonder if it's worth spending all that money on a glove that's not really gonna fit. Might end up going with something like the Cortech Scarab for use with the liners.

My Rainstar thumbs were slightly smaller than every other Held glove in 9 that I've had. I took the appropriate sized socket and stuck it in the thumb and forgot about it for a few days. Now, they're perfect. Just a thought. It definitely stretched them out just enough. Don't tell Held just in case
