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...

    pretty

      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).

        Wow

          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.

          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 backcountry.com 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.

            Solid

              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.

              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.

                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.

                    Not Bad

                      These gloves are very nice. I think the price is a bit inflated, but no doudt about quality. If you like Hestra gloves i would check out the Backcountry.com generic brand. They are a better price and perhaps a better glove. I returned these in favor of the Backcountry.com Inbounds Glove. I think it's better than the Cloud Nine. Cheers!

                        Manual dexterity and warmth

                          The Hestra Cloud Nine sits in the top 2 gloves of my arsenal and believe me I have a lot. I've had so many problems with gloves and it's hard for me to find a good glove. What I look for is manual dexterity, dryness factor and warmth. I've had other gloves that combine two of the three but not all three. This glove achieves the holy trinity! I absolutely love it. I've never worn a glove that is so minimalist and yet warm. Great dexterity, dry and warm. I've worn down to about -10 with this glove and no problems. The sizing is true to the chart although the wrist is a little tight, it's worth it. I would definitely recommend this to any skiier, if the price tag is a little much for you, check out the NEW Backcountry.com brand Inbounds Glove.

                          Better than the Seth Morrison pro model

                            Unlike the the Seths, these are TRUE to size. They have slightly more insulation, and give me more dexterity. I've skied with the Boronowski/Cloud Nines in the negative teens (F) and my hands remained very warm. The Hestra leather balm worked just ok. The gloves get a little wet on the palms, but my hands FEEL NO MOISTURE.
                            FIVE STARS!!

                            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.

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

                            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...

                            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.

                            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.

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

                            The Hestra Cloud Nine Glove might be slightly warmer than the Backcountry.com Stoic glove because the Hestra Glove uses synthetic insulation and the Backcountry.com glove uses wool. I own the Backcountry.com 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.
