Hands-down, a supersick ski glove.
Rich and rugged leather, featherweight insulation, and ergonomic grip get the Hestra Ergo Grip Freeride Glove a big, warm thumbs-up. And the neoprene cuff, brushed lining, and wide adjustable hook-and-loop closure get it applause from the rest of the hand, too.
- Cowhide and goat leather materials provide that inimitable feel and high performance of leather
- Thermolite insulation adds warmth without weight
- Ergo grip efficiently uses materials, provides optimal comfort, and lets hand move effortlessly in a natural way
- Brushed polyester lining feels good and helps conduct excess moisture away from skin
- Loops keep your gloves together
- Hook-and-loop closure adjusts for protection at your wrist
- Neoprene cuff stretches and secures for superfine fit

Great grip and feel
I've worn my Ergo grips three times over the past month in varying condition (no skinning), 5 deg F, 15deg F, 27 deg F and my hands were cold on the 5 and 15 deg days, but stayed warm on the 27 deg day. This was my first pair of Hestra gloves after being a life-long mitt wearer and I have to go back to mitts, my hands just get that cold. However, if you have good circulation in your hands these gloves are amazing! They move very well, grip well, stay dry and have wrist straps so you won't lose them when you've got to take your glove off.
I am experiencing buyer's remorse

I received the Hestra Ergo Grip Freeride Gloves the other day.
My first impression of the glove is as follows;
I measure a size 9 in gloves. I ordered a size 10 based on a previous review, and I concur that these gloves run on the small side.
Size 10 Finger length is good on my hand, but the circumference is snug on my size 9 hands.
The quality of the leather seems good, I think they look good, but I am a little worried if the stitching will hold up (only time will tell).
My biggest complaint is what seems to be a noticeable lack or a decrease of insulation in the fingertip areas.
I wore the gloves in ~ 21 degree windy weather, and after a few minutes my fingertips were noticeably COLD.
My first impression is that the gloves are expensive, and I feel that I could have found the same quality for less money in a different brand or type of glove.

I have used these extensively this winter from groomers, park to backcountry. They are my go to glove. The fit is tight (size 10), when compared to other hestra styles i have (ie. army leather GTX, the seth morrisons). Warmth and durability have exceeded my expectations. All day backcountry skinning in -15degree temps, the glove dexterity and usability are the best i have experienced.
