The best Hestra's i've found

Of all the different Hestra gloves i have Skied with over the years....Seth's, another pair of Seth's, Vertical Cuts, Guides, and the Army's,, These are for sure the best, For a couple of reasons. First, The Price is Better than many of the gloves mentioned above. All gloves eventually hit the Crapper ( Blow out, Worn out, Waterproofing gone, etc.), meaning having to spend less on a pair is great. I have found the Seth Gloves to have the poorest construction. I have only managed to get 3/4 of a season out of both pairs of Seth's iv'e owned. Second, The fit is better out of the box, Meaning no break-in period. Just throw some Glove conditioner (provided in the small pouch) on them, and your golden. Third, Is i enjoy the shorter cuff, or Gauntlet on these better than other models as i like to have my gloves under my jacket cuffs. And they aren't super bulky like other models. granted they are not as warm because of that, but a pair of liners should take care of that no problem. My second Recommendation would be the Vertical Cut glove for the people that tend to have colder hands, If youre not keen on liners. I hope this helps anyone looking for new gloves.

Thanks. I never have used liners, but need new gloves. Old Dakine Cobras are past their expiration date. Its down to the Vertical Cut Freeriders and these gloves. Vertical Cut Freeriders seem to offer better hand protection for knuckle-dragging though
Im not sure if my hands get really cold or not, as Im seldom in the coldest of cold days in the PNW.
