Description

Now you’re in the big time.

Hestra built the big-mountain Women’s Heli 3-Finger Glove out of Triton, its most hard-wearing fabric, to give you full patrol support as you rip huge lines, assault the trees, and drop cliffs like a psychotic lemming. A removable liner regulates temperature and Hestra’s Eagle Grip shape follows the form of your hand rather than the form of a stiff board. Handcuffs hold in heat and block snow, and Quallofil insulation keeps you warm when the thermometer goes into the negative.

Awesome Glove

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small

I bought these for my wife. Her hands stay toasty warm in Alta, Utah Feb/March weather conditions. As the other reviews stated, these run small so order one size up.

Not just for skiing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I bought these to wear when I walk my dogs. Normally, my hands go numb from the cold very quickly (once temps go below 40 degrees). I have tried many styles of gloves. Finally! These Heli 3-Finger gloves keep my hands warm, but give me dexterity to deal with leashes, poo bags, and give me a better sense of having control of the dogs on our walks. My only complaint, and it's more of a preference, is regarding the liner portion for the three fingers. The middle, ring, and pinky finger liner is three individual finger slots, like a normal glove. I would prefer to have the liner for the three fingers be together like a mitten (like the shell) with freedom for the middle, ring, and pinky fingers within the liner. My preference only.

Solid glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These gloves were really solid. I think I tested their limits by skiing in the single digits because my fingers did manage to get cold after a while. (I get cold easily tho) If you're planning to ski in these kind of conditions, I would be sure to have glove liners or hand warmers on stand by just in case. Otherwise, I loved the fact that the gloves hook around your wrists (so you can't drop them), and the separate pointer finger made it much easier to use my hands without taking the gloves off. I have fairly small hands, and I went with a size 7 -- I think I could have gotten away with an 8, but the 7 was fine.

Great Gloves, Though they run small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Order at least one size larger than you normally would, or think you should. These run very small.
Love the gloves otherwise. Best you can buy!

Awesome gloves and excellent service

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered the size "recommended" by the Hestra charts, and they were too small to be comfortable (I guess my fingers are freakishly long). I had a super easy and incredibly helpful exchange experience, and my new (and perfectly fitting!) gloves arrived quickly.

These gloves are a HUGE step up from what I was wearing before. Some snow got in them when I took them off between runs, but the moisture wicks away from your hands very quickly and my hands were never cold (which is a revelation for me!). The leather is incredibly soft but seems durable, the plum color is gorgeous, and the 3-finger design is very user-friendly.

I think the only thing I would change about the gloves would be the "handcuffs". They're slightly elastic cuffs, but they are quite large around my wrists, both in width (running up my arm) and diameter (big around). I think I would like the fully adjustable, slide-the-bead-to-the-desired-location style better, and I haven't yet figured out how to modify the cuffs so that they suit me better.

Overall, fantastic gloves so far - I'll make sure to take really good care of this high-quality product by keeping up with the leather balm!

Favorite pair of gloves

I bought this pair on the advice of a friend after my old pair of gloves were cracked and left my fingers cold. The 3 finger gloves are a great idea because I'm able to use my index finger to grab things but it keeps my fingers for the most part warm. I accidentally dropped some snow in the gloves and they dried out really quickly even with me wearing them, which was a huge plus.

Great All-Round Glove

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Either I am a creature of habit or this is an awesome glove (probably a little bit of both considering I buy this glove every couple of years). I have heard complaints that the gloves are too warm, or that the leather is not very durable in wet conditions. For me, however, I use this seemingly powder glove everyday to fight raynauds and am vigilant about applying the leather protective oil to fight against wetness. I have been fortunate and not skied too many wet days where the gloves might soak through - if this is your future I would recommend the gor-tex version.

Besides the warmth, I keep coming back to these gloves because of the 3-finger dexterity. It functions like a glove, but I rarely have to remove it altogether with the freedom of the index finger. Overall, great glove for resort skiing!

Really Happy!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have skied with old tattered gloves for the past 5 years, always had cold, wet hands. All my skier friends wear Hestra, I just couldn't get past the price but I'm so glad I finally gave in and got a pair and I'm glad I chose Backcountry.com, good price and reliable, I felt safe ordering from them! I love my new gloves, I like the wrist leash and the fact that the liners are removable and the soft leather is really nice when i wipe my nose!

Mixed experiences

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these mits for my girlfriend two seasons ago. She loved the look, the cuff and the wrist lanyards. Unfortunately the leather saturates with water easily and results in cold wet hands. I found this odd because I have the hestra heli gloves and have never had this issue. We both apply leather oil to the gloves regularly.

I'm pretty sold on Hestra based on the reviews listed but need help deciding between the 3-Finger Glove and the Heli Mitt. Any advice?

Best Answer Responded on

The 3-finger is the best of both worlds, offering better dexterity than a mitten, with a level of warmth and comfort that surpasses a glove. I have a pair of the Men's 3-fingers and absolutely love them. They take some getting used to, but having the ability to pick things up with your thumb and index finger, or grab items out of your pocket without having to take off a mitten makes a world of difference. I would definitely recommend the 3-finger, for sure!

My wife just has cold hands!

To me the gloves look to be good quality, and backcountry.com has them for a great price. I was sorry to hear from my wife that they didn't keep her hands warm. For her these will be spring skiing gloves.

I'm very surprised. I have skied a tremendous amount over the past 44 years and tried numerous gloves/mittens. For me, Hestra is by far the best.

This particular glove doesn't keep my hands warm either! disappointed

Love These Gloves

These gloves fit snug true to size. I wear a women's 7 in gloves and these fit well. If you are in between, go for the larger size. These are perfect for mid 20's to mid 30's air temps. Might be a bit too warm above that. And I have "cold" hands. I have only worn them for 6 or 7 outings but they are still waterproof and the leather has been wearing well (I don't use these on a rope tow though) and still waterproof. Haven't worn them in a downpour. I have good dexterity. Love the handcuffs. I have the all white ones - I do wish they would make the palm leather in either black or dark grey.

Just wondered how you like these vs. the gloves, and if these seemed stiff or soft?

Wonderfully warm and cozy

I've been using a set of the men's heli gloves for years and have been thoroughly impressed with them. After listening to my girlfriend complain about cold fingers most of last season I bought a pair of these for her for x-mas. I picked the 3-finger gloves because she snowboards. They provide a little more dexterity for adjusting bindings while the mitten part keeps the smaller, less used fingers a bit warmer.

We put them to good use over the holiday break making it out to the slopes 4 times in one week. They held up well to the relatively constant use. She has been very, very happy with them. Where we used to take a break every hour or so to warm up we now keep on skiing/boarding. Even on a day with a -10F windchill I never heard a peep about fingers being cold. Toes on the other hand...that's the next item to address :-)


I don't find the Hestra Heli series gloves to be the best option on an extremely cold day, but they are certainly better than a lot of other options and its hard to go wrong at the price. On most 20-30F days the heli gloves/mittens can be almost too warm if you're working hard carving turns.

Hestra Heli 3-Finger Glove

These are the best compromise I've found between mitts and gloves - super, super warm and they leave your trigger finger free should you need to fend off any attackers. My wife wears the woman's glove and I wear the unisex - can't tell a difference to save my life.

Good gloves

Quality construction, buttery soft leather!

Backcountry phone representatives are always helpful, they ships fast too.

I love them!!! Bought them on advise if a friend and because of "backcountry" I bought them at a much better price.

What is the difference between the women's glove and the unisex version?

Responded on

About a half size difference. The men's is a bit roomier - especially for fingers.
