Description

Super-tough, super-comfortable.

Hestra made the Heli glove for folks who need an extra-warm, extra-tough glove for the backcountry. The Heli glove uses tough waterproof, breathable Hestra Triton/ polyamide fabric for warmth with tough goat-leather palms for maximum durability. The Quallofill liner is removable so it will dry out quickly and you can get back out on the slopes.

Best gloves I've owned

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 160 lbs

I bought these gloves because my last pair did not keep my hands warm at all. These gloves are awesome. They do what a glove should do, keep my hands warm and dry. I like the strap on the wrist they keep the gloves really secure. Also really like the wrist leashes they are not annoying like most.

Super Comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Just got these gloves and haven't worn them out skiing but my initial impression is that these are great! They feel a little tight (wish there were sizes larger than 10) but they will probably loosen up as they are broken in. Love all the straps and the wrist hook. Will be a great glove for getting out into the snow!

Oh so comfy and warm

I value two things with gloves; durability and versatility. This gloves has both! Hestra sells a myriad of different liners so the gloves can adapt to whatever weather you are experiencing and when the liner is worn out you do not have to replace the whole glove just the liner! How sweet is that? I butter them up with Hestra leather conditioner after wet days on the mountain and they are holding up well. Still look a little too new if you ask me! I cannot wait till they are worn in with memories of great days on the mountain.

Forever Warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

From the first time I put these gloves on I was so happy about how well they fit and how warm they are. I love the removable liners so if I have to wash them it wont ruin the waterproofing, Great for negative 10 weather all day.

I have a pair of the Hestra Heli gloves. I have found that I continually get wet spots on the palms. When I pull the liners at the end of the day I usually notice some moisture. I haven't treated these gloves with Sno-seal or Nikwax yet, but have liberally applied the Hestra Balm on a number of occasions. My hands never feel clammy or sweaty, but maybe its possible I am sweating through the liners? My question is simply should I be "sealing" the glove with something besides the supplied balm? Has anyone ever tried sealing the inside of the glove?
Thanks!

Hey Kaffieen, I live in Whistler, BC and we get lots of wet days skiing. I just use the leather balm and I find that it keeps the leather breathable and my hands stay dry (even on the wet days). My friend uses Nikwax on his full leather Hestra's and it does a great job, but his only complaint is that it limits the leathers ability to breath so moisture can escape.

Responded on

I would never put anything but the Hestra leather balm or any other well made conditioner targeted specifically for genuine leather.
If you put something that seals the leather. It will not be able to breath and can become prematurely failing and/or drying and cracking. Leather is like skin, it has to breath to stay healthy. That remains true for animal skin too.
As far as why you're having water, it's possible you are sweating in them. These are overkill on mild or spring conditions. You would surely sweat if you had the liners and gloves in that. Anything under 28F or so and I've never had any issues using both and that's all the way to well below zero.
But if your hands never feel wet or clammy or cold, I would just make sure to dry them out and wash when needed. Perhaps try some lighter weight liners for days that aren't below 30 degrees. Liners are cheap to replace. The whole glove, not so much.
Hope any of this helps and good luck with finding the right answer.

good gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These gloves are super warm and keep the snow out, I like the wrist straps that keep them on when you're dealing on the lift and don't have to worry about them falling off.

Does the Hestra Heli glove have a wrist strap?

Dad loves em

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these gloves for my dad and they were great for skiing. His hands did get a bit cold, but it was often in the single digits where we were, and I suspect they'd be perfect under slightly warmer conditions. I can't speak to the durability of the gloves since this was the first time he'd worn them, but they seem to be extremely well-made.

Good gloves

This is my third season with this gloves. Have been using it for more than 20 times. The glove still in the good shape.

To me, this glove not as warm as I expected. The back of the glove is not wind or waterproof. When it's windy, I could feel the wind go through the glove to my skin. The glove itself will be good until temp drop below -5c.
After that I have to use SmartWool glove liner to keep my hand toasty until -15 or so. Beyond that point a hand warmer is needed.

Very Well Built Glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Like the fit of the glove and much better fit then the gore tex version. I decided to go with the Arcteryx since the weatherproofing is bomber. I am sure this would have worked well but like to have a removable liner and gore tex. Hestra at this point does not seem to have this in any of their gloves that fit me. But kept the Hestra Guide glove since it fits so well and has a removable wool liner.

Just awesome.

  • Fit: True to size

Amazing glove. Fit is so dialed in, and you don't sacrifice warmth. Cuffs are a tad long, so make sure you like a cuffed glove if you get these.

Overall I can't imagine a better fit/warmth ratio on a glove.

Hestra Heli Warm and Durable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Hestra does pretty much one thing and that's gloves. I just got my first pair about a month ago and am pleased as punch. So far I've put them to the test skiing as well as some extreme Utah snow shoveling. Definitely warmer than my last pair (can't remember what brand those were), they seem way more durable, and I'm a fan of the big gauntlet and straps.

Run small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I used the size chart. While it doesn't list size 12, you can see where it would be based on the other sizes. I was between 11 and where 12 would be. I ordered a 12. They were too small. The gloves seem solid, but I didn't get a chance to try them. I wish they made a 13. Order one size up from the chart I would suggest. I am not sure why the chart isn't quite correct.

Tried these gloves out this weekend and was very impressed, comfort, stylish, and very warm. Would highly recommend!!!

Has anyone here used these gloves for...

Has anyone here used these gloves for snowmobiling at all? And if so what were the pros and cons of them. Im trying to find a good waterproof glove that is somewhat thin so that i can still feel the handle bars and controls. Ive had a hand full of gloves and non really do the trick... Also my hands get cooled easier than most, gots me some metal plates in them

Hey Man I was the first to review these back in 2009 when they came on the scene here . Yea you will feel the controls no problem. I get cold hands as well I would add a heavyweight liner with them from Outdoor research you will be totally covered .
I just got back from the Adirondack's and a 20 mile single day summit of Mt.Marcy . It was in the low teens all day with no sun I never used my extra liners all day . You should be good to go they are built to last I have had several pairs of these non have ever failed . Hope that helps bro .

Great Glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

An amazing glove, love the length of the gauntlet. Keeps snow out, high quality leather palms. I havent had a chance to use them in really wet conditions yet but so far they have been the warmest sturdiest gloves i have ever owned.

Bomber glove, no rivals for me.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I'll start by saying that I have put this glove through two seasons of wear and they show it; not by wear and tear, but by simple leather discoloration. These gloves have stood tall no matter what I threw at them, my fingers only getting cold on days well below zero and even then only on the lift up.

I kept hearing that this glove runs small so I ordered a size up (8 --> 9) and it fit like nothing else. Ordering one size up was perfect for me, so that is what I recommend. However, these gloves are too small for my hands now; not due to shrinkage, but just gaining years.

I don't have anything bad to say about these gloves. Idiot straps kept me from being an idiot more than once on the lift, pow gauntlet keeps it all out, and the styling isn't garish nor is it bland. When it comes time to replace them, I can think of no other glove to replace it, much less one-up it. Very satisfied.
