I was looking for a warm glove to replace my worn out Swanys. I have a pair of old Hestras, and I never thought they were warm, but well-built and sturdy, so I took a shot based on all of the good reviews. I ordered the same size as my old pair, and the fingers on the new gloves are quite a bit longer, which is making it much harder to hold my ski poles. If I could return them after one use, I would and get the next size smaller. That said, they are very warm and the quality is high.
