Coming apart at the seams after less than 6 months of minimal wear.

I had the same experience with the Altura ones that I bought about 4 years ago (from Lidl  ???). They came apart around the thumb/first finger.

They are warm though, so I carried on using them for a year alternating with other gloves.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

I have found Altura customer service to be very very good, try emailing them.

Given up on Altura, everything I have bought has had problems with the seams. Gloves, Shorts, Gloves, Rain Jackets....
Shame.

Quality was OK for their intended use - ie warm days when the temps are +3 to +9oC. Not warm enough for subzero days and not particularly breathable either. Mine died when the fingers got jumbled internally after a wash and my wife tried to fix them by pulling all the liner layers out and trying to re-stuff them... bin!
