Here's what others have to say...

These gloves look cool, but not very warm. are these park gloves or what?

These gloves are super warm. They have a CZone insert (Hestra's version of Gortex) in them along with insulation. This is an all mountain glove.

Great glove, could be warmer

These are super dextrous, the leather is nice and soft. Keep in mind that they will pack down a bit after a bit of use. I love the white color. The short cuffs have not been a problem so far because even the end stay fairly tight on my wrists.

They are warm enough for me down to about 30F with Mammoth wind, and below that I pair them with the Hestra merino liner glove. With the liner my hands are always warm. (however the liners fell apart after about 10 days... that's a different story)

I am taking away a star because there are some loose thread ends coming out of the seams. Not a big deal since I scored them on tramdock, but if I paid full price for them I would be annoyed. I also wish there was a nose wipe...

should i get the cloud nine or the vertical cut freeride glove?

Best Answer

well dpnds on what you want. Cloud nine is light due to it fabric leather combo and Waterproof . and looks cool.
The vertical cut is Hestra's best selling glove it is precurved to fit a ski pole constructed of 102 components it is straight up leather no waterproof memebrane which mean you will get better dexterity out of the glove. If you live in a wet place or you hand are n the snow a lot I would choose cloud nine.

size 9 is way smaller than a size 9 in hestra vertical cut freeride. size up by 1 or 2 IMO. leather and whole glove actually seemed to just get soggy after a full day. not the best hestra product IMO but they nailed the styling. maybe if i had the correct size i'd be more happy. but, for performance, suggest stoic inbounds or hestra freeride

To legit to quit!

These are great pair of gloves, between style and performance there is none better than Hestra. My hands have never been cold nor have they been wet after a long day of riding. There are however a few downsides, if you do not apply the leather treatment consistantly after a while you may start to see water stains, secondly doing tricks that involve grabbing your ski edges or carrying your skis may cutt the leather on your gloves (things to think about).

Very warm, Hestra is always at the top of my list. The only things I didn't like: Made in China, very snug when going by sizing chart, lining pulled out of pinky finger and it was a son of a... to get back in.

Does sell the Hestra balm?...

Does sell the Hestra balm? Have been trying to find it and not having much luck.

No but it comes free when you buy the hestra heli ski glove , I have only seen the balm for sale on it own direct from hestra it only like 15 bucks

Thanks - I got some with these gloves as well but would like to re-condition. Also have another pair that definitely need a treatment. Will check out the Hestra site.

picked these up on Tramdock, and they are sweet. The leather is super soft, they are really warm, and they look cool. Obviously white will get dirty, but that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Do these keep snow out as well as the Seth...

Do these keep snow out as well as the Seth pros or the Vertical cute free ride? The glove looks sick but I am worried about the length of the cuff. Any thoughts? Just trying to keep the snow away from my digis!

The cuffs are short, yea, but they're also pretty narrow and tight so I haven't had any trouble with snow or moisture getting in. I took them out in a few feet of powder and my hands stayed dry even with a bit of tumbling and shoveling...

Bought these on S&C, and absolutely love them. Wore them for the first three days of Big Skys season, it got pretty cold too with the wind. These are hands down the nicest and warmest gloves I have ever owned, it like the Porsche of gloves. The leather is super soft and so is the inside of the glove, and they look dope.

UPDATE: Glove were great but they ripped at the seams after about 50 days. Hestra was cool and sent me another pair.

what is the best way to apply water proofing to these? heat them up in the oven for a few minutes then apply? Do i need to worry about getting leather balm on the non leather parts of the glove?

Bad Answer Angus, Hestra recommends waterproofing their gloves. Sigh.

Best way to do it is to take some time and rub the waterproofing wax into the glove, making sure to especially get areas that tend to get wet. Hope that helps, it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

They don't remain waterproof forever with applying some kind of waterproof material. I'd suggest the Nikkwax leather waterproofing wax. Apply that stuff all over the leather parts of the glove in accordance to the directions on the Nikkwax bottle.

For my Hestra Gloves, I always apply after leaving the gloves near a heater in my house for a little while to make sure that they are warm/room temperature, but not too hot. Don't worry about getting the the waterproofing on the synthetic parts of the glove, it will just make it more water repellent. I usually re-apply the leather balm and/or waterproofing 1/2 way through the season to keep the leather in good shape.

The leather balm is just a conditioner not a waterproofing. i wouldn"t heat the gloves too much room temp is just fine maybe warm the balm up a little to make it easier to apply. This glove does have a waterproof membrane , but to keep the leather palms from soaking out try some Nikwax glove proof.

Wondering what size to get?

I just got the Hestra Cloud Nines and they feel great. I haven't had a chance to use them in the snow ( it's still summer) but just thought I would put in my two cents about sizing. I read all the reviews, measured my had and went with the smaller size 8. my hands measures to be an 8 also. I had to exchange them, which by the way is very easy with and got a size 9. They nines fit great. remember they are leather gloves and will stretch a bit after a while. I would say if you are in between sizes go for the size up definitely.

I've been a big fan of Hestra gloves for a little while now so it should be no surprise that the Cloud Nine gloves pass the test on cold weather days. I initially bought these as a late season glove, but they handled freezing temps with gusts over 40mph last weekend just fine. The price listed here is the only thing keeping this product at 4 stars since I bought mine new for $35. Note that the Cloud Nine will have a snug fit at first, but after 10 or so days they should fit much better.

Hestra runs a sample sale in April every year at the Golden, CO location. Almost all gloves can be purchased for under $40.

Great Glove

These gloves are warm yet still true to hestras roots as being very dexterous. They are pretty breathable, I have used them in a variety of conditions with temperatures ranging from 15-35 or so and they perform very well. Only downside is it seems that getting white leather gloves makes them susceptible to absorbing colors off of other fabrics for some reason. They are slightly discolored, possibly cleaning with leather conditioner will fix.

Are the Cloud Nine's warmer than the...

Are the Cloud Nine's warmer than the Backcoutry stoic inbounds?

The Hestra Cloud Nine Glove might be slightly warmer than the Stoic glove because the Hestra Glove uses synthetic insulation and the glove uses wool. I own the Stoic glove and have to admit on cold days my hands are not warm but hiking or anytime the temp is above 25 degrees the gloves rock.

Damn my hands look good.

I love these gloves. The leather is super resilient so the white color stays surprisingly clean looking. The fit just gets better with time as a good leather glove should. Definitely continue to use the leather sealant cream that comes with the gloves (or something comparable). Its keeps them nice longer, keeps your hands warm. Hestra rocks.

These run small

Very dexterous and warm glove. Seems like they run very small compared to other brands. I used the sizing chart provided and it wasn't even close. Once I was able to get the right fit I must say I really like the glove. Overall I'm happy with this purchase, they fit well, look good, are warm and are dexterous. I ended up sizing up twice before I got the right size.
