The HESTRA Alpine Pro Guide Glove is a well made, durable, all leather glove, (Although mine arrived with stitches missing-I repaired myself). I like the removable liner idea to allow the liners to dry out overnight. This also allows the leather to dry more quickly.
The gauntlet is effective even in POW POW. Like a lot of products now, it is made in China, so I am not sure why they can still say it is a "Swedish" glove. You must treat the leather often with HESTRA Leather Balm. The leather does get a little moisture saturation after skiing all day, but it is still warm and comfy.
The Wool Pile/Terry liner is so-so. It is comfortable, but gets a little cold at 10 degrees or below because the terry front, (grip side), is a little thin. I use the HESTRA Polartec Power Dry Waffled Glove as an insert with or without the wool liners, as replacements or for added warmth.
The HESTRA handcuff is a must with these gloves for security and for doffing gloves while of a lift.
I love my HESTRA Guide Pro's but also use the warmer HESTRA Pro glove on frigid days.
