Just some kind of poly something. I have a bunch of liners from various gloves I've bought over the years, from Dakine, Burton, Pow, Drop.

then a good pair of Merino Wool liners might do the trick for you

Two new questions:

(1)
Anyone know where online I can find POW Sniper Trigger GTX mitts in Black and Large?
I've Googled and Binged with no success.

(2)
Between the Snipers and the Tantos, which is the warmer/better glove?
It's confusing...

Sniper vs Tanto
Gore-Tex vs Hipora = Sniper wins
Thinsulate vs Primaloft = Tanto wins
PU vs Leather = Tanto wins
$75 vs $70 = Sniper wins (more expensive = better)

Basically, how do these compare?!

Decided to go with the POW Tanto Trigger mitts from here

Partly because the Snipers are very hard to find in Large, and partly because the Tantos have Primaloft insulation, which is apparently better than the Thinsulate in the Snipers

Have you tried on POW gloves before? I've noticed they seem to run a little small so I've had to bump up a size on my POW gloves/mittens over what I'd usually get with a Dakine/Burton/Drop glove.

the gloves arrived today.

they look and feel really good, but like you and others have suggested they do run a bit small.

when I measured my hands I was 21.5cm right between Medium and Large according to the POW sizing guide. I ordered Large... I'm glad I did, because they fit perfectly... Medium would definitely have been too small for me.

i haven't tried them on with liners yet... hopefully they still fit alright
