    Details

    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.

    Hestra = AWESOME

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

    That's all I have to say about that! Well, not really… as with all Hestra products these gloves take an absolute beating and just don't die! Look as good as new even with 100+ days of skiing and trail work on them.

    for price and bulk, not warm at all

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: medium

    My fingers get cold as soon as it dips below freezing in these gloves. They are bulky yet they keep my fingers about as warm as a thin spring glove would. I've been riding with these for almost two years hoping I was just imagining things, but its true. I now wear a black diamond primaloft filled mitten for days below 20 degrees and i'll probably buy kinco work gloves to replace these Hestras. They are just too disappointing.

    Great Ski Glove

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

    Dropped some major coin on these, glad I did. Took them through Deer Valley, Park City, Canyons and Alta and they performed great. Very warm and very tough. I would buy these again.

    Winter Unleashed

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    This has been my go-to ski gloves for 4 seasons now and it has kept my digits warm through some brutal winter weather. I wear it on the outside of the cuff on my Arc'teryx Rush Jacket due to the big gauntlet (which took some getting used to) but I have never had snow get inside. My hands run cold but not in the Heli Gloves, even in negative temps. These are warmer than my Black Diamond Guide Gloves. I would recommend treating the leather every 50-60 days to keep it waterproof and prevent any deterioration. All Hestra gloves come with a small amount of extra leather treatment balm included . Here are my hand measurements:

    Hand Length: 7.8"
    Hand Circumference: 8.5"

    Winter Unleashed

    Best gloves I've owned

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

    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 loops. Will be a great glove for getting out into the snow!

    Oh so comfy and warm

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

    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.

    *Update*

    I've logged a few more days skiing with these and I still love them BUT for really wet weather you HAVE to make sure the leather is treated. My hands got soaked while skiing at Baker early this season, and upon close inspection I noticed the only the fabric portions of the glove are water proof. The leather has now laminate to keep water out and it solely relies on being treated with a waterproofer. No big deal, as long as you know to treat them. I guess this is why they sell all there gloves with a sample of the the leather conditioner. An added benefit is that these gloves are breaking in beautifully and the leather is getting softer.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    How do these compare to the Black Diamond Guide Gloves?

    With all due respect, I'm very doubtful to most people's claims of wearing this thing out in whatever low temperature. If you're out in -31 F, then these will not suffice. But if you're planning on using this for most applications (skiiing, snowboarding, light mountaineering) then this is great. Also since this is a glove, not a mitten, don't expect super warmth. If you're out in -31 F then you better get some crazy expedition style mittens.

    I can't tell if I should get a size 11 or 12. I tried the size guide at Hestra's website, but I noticed that no matter how large the measurements are, it never recommends more than 11. I've tried on the 11 and there is a little room at the tips of the fingers without pulling it on as tight as it'll go, but my knuckles are still about an inch and a half from where the fingers meet the palm (creating a bit of a webbed finger effect). Any advice on proper size? Thanks.

    Bought these at a local shop and they told me NOT to use the conditioner until the leather needed re-waterproofing. Seems to me I should be putting it on already. Can someone verify? Thanks.

    I'm looking at the Hestra Heli-glove and the Marmot Ultimate ski glove, mostly because the Marmots use Primoloft. Can anyone compare the insulation in these gloves to Primoloft? Thanks.

    The Bemberg/Polyester liner that Hestra uses is very good, and definitely comparable to Primoloft. Primoloft is just coated synthetic fibers that resist excessive breakdown over time, its a brand-name, like Gore-Tex. Hestra does offer replacement liners for around $20'ish when the liners break-down after a few seasons of heavy use. Hestra gloves are definitely worth the investment.



    Cheers

    So the liner is removable and held in place with velcro inside the cuff. Is the hook or loop inside of the glove? I don't want the velcro to snag my soft shell jacket if the liner isn't in.

    Where is this glove made. Hopefully not in China

    I own a pair and there is definitely a Made in China tag on them. Great gloves and the quality seems to be pretty phenomenal too. I know, I know - how horrible am I, buying goods from China and single handily collapsing the world economy!

    I'm between the 8 and 9. Any advice as to what size to go for? Measurement wise I'm about a 7.5 ''.

    I would definitely say to size up. These gloves do fit pretty true to size, but if you're looking for warmth, if its tight it won't be as warm. The dexterity on these gloves is not that great anyway, so I'd say that there would be no benefit to going with the smaller size.

    I would say to go with the size that correctly fits your hand, I went one size up and they stretched out after two days of skiing and were too big. Lucky the local shop has a great return policy. Returned and got the ones that fit correctly. After two days of skiing they stretched a little and gave me the needed breathing room.

    just bought the heli glove... hands were cold at 10 degrees... do any of you have suggestions for a liner i can wear inside the liner? whats best??? thank you in advance...

    john

    Everyone has different luck with cold hands, and as 10 degrees is pretty cold, and I'd say that you'd probably have better luck with the mitten version. I personally have both, and use the gloves for everything high out-put and for temps above 5 degrees, but when the winds blowing on a cold winter alpine slog, I definitely pull out my mits. Hope that helps.

    Do you wear another liner underneath these...

    Do you wear another liner underneath these gloves?
    I usually have cold hands while skiing and use hand warmers, so I decided to buy the female version of these gloves. I tried them out last weekend skiing in a resort. The temperature was around -15 to -20 C (5 to -4 F). I didn't feel they kept my hands warm at all! By the time I got down the run my hands were frozen and really painful. I felt that the wind went through them while I ski fast and took away all the warm air. Does anyone have the same problem? Do you wear another liner underneath? Which liner would you recommend?
    I'm so surprised and disappointed as I heard so many good reviews on these gloves.

    How do these gloves hold up to Ski Patrol?...

    How do these gloves hold up to Ski Patrol? I am an east coast patroller and my gloves rarely last more than a couple of seasons.

    I know this answer is kind of late, but I am also a patroller. About 60 days per season. I've had these gloves for about 3 1/2 seasons, and they hold up super well. The leather turns a greyish nasty looking color, and the cloth looks gross, but the gloves are absolutely perfect structurally. They are absolutely bullet proof and super warm, and the cuffs are nice because when you take off your gloves to write accident reports, tie cravats, etc. you don't loose them. I would definitely recommend them!
