Description

The Heli keeps you warm and dry from east coast ice to Alaskan steeps.

The Hestra Women’s Heli Glove gives you warmth and waterproof protection whether you’re hopping out of a ‘copter in the Chugach or cutting icy lines at your local hill. The Triton and Entrant shell and Quallofil synthetic insulation keep the wet, cold conditions at bay, and the leather palm with an Eagle Grip preformed fit helps you grasp your ski poles on the gnarly descent. A removable liner glove works great for base camp tasks or après ski cocktails.

Frozen Fingers

Palms of my hands stayed nice and warm, but my finger tips where just cold all day long. I used these in PC on warm sunny days, and down low they where ok I could wiggle my fingers to warm them up, but once we hit the top it was miserable. No way was I going to try time on a real cold snowy day (if one shows up).

Not warm enough

Bought these gloves last year and just got a chance to use them skiing in Utah. Clear sunny but cold day. The first run down the mountain fingers were FROZEN. Got a pair of liners to use with them and hands were fine the rest of the day. Not sufficient for me.

Recommended... Or not.

I liked the feel of the gloves. The gloves (cuffs) were to long for my purpose. I needed more dexterity than the gloves allowed. Also being white they would not be easy to keep clean.

Love Hestra

Hestra is the only glove/mitten I will wear. I am a person who has always had cold hands. Well no more. These gloves are great for those blue bird days or out in the back country. These are my second pair of Hestra gloves and I love every inch of them. However I do recommend using sno-seal instead of the Hestra balm I have found that it doesn't change the color quit so much and keeps the leather softer.

Can anyone suggest a truly waterproof...

Can anyone suggest a truly waterproof woman's glove to be used in a downpour, not in snow, that still allows use of the fingers such as buckling large buckles, scooping grain, etc...?

Thanks, Aine

no glove that has good dexterity will really be waterproof in an extended downpour.
try a neoprene glove, it will get wet but will keep warm.
I don't see a simple one for sale on this site but check a general sports store. Fishermen and kayakers use them.

I agree with AC that about the only glove that's really going to be completely waterproof in pouring down rain for hours is probably one of those lovely yellow rubber kitchen gloves.
That said, you should be good in quite a bit of rain with some gore tex gloves, here's a few:

There's plenty of other gloves out there as well that use some form of gore-tex for waterproofing, these are just a few. Many of them probably come in a womens version as well, I know the BD Guide glove does.

Hardcore Goodness

Most of the guides we skied with in AK used Hestra gloves so they were a natural consideration when my old North Face work gloves wore out. In temps above 0F these are excellent gloves and keep your hands very warm, waterproof performance is as good as it should be. Sizing based on the chart is a bit tight though I had to send mine back and go a size up.

This is my 3rd or 4th pair of Hestras and they're great in anything above 10F for alpine skiing in CO. They do run a tad tight. I wear a very thin wool liner to combat sweaty hands and have them last longer. Below 10F if out for extended periods I need to work to keep my fingertips ok.
