The Usual Hestra Excellence
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've been skiing in the Hestra Heli Glove for a few seasons now, and decided to upgrade to this model for added warmth--and to more comfortably survive the current cold snap that is gracing the Wasatch. After a few close calls with frostbite in the past two weeks, I ordered the 3-Finger Glove in the hopes that it would maintain the dexterity that I know and love in Hestra products and would serve as a more utilitarian version of a mitten. Mission accomplished! I skied Alta in the glove today with subzero temperatures and a -15 degree wind chill, and was 100% satisfied with the added warmth provided by the burly structure and the 3-finger design. The goat leather on the palm and fingers is durable as ever, and provided plenty of grip and dexterity. I look forward to putting these gloves through the wringer this winter!
