Pray for snow with the toasty Heli’s.

Grab the Hestra Women’s Heli Mitt when you head to the slopes or jaunt around town. These babies keep your hands and fingers toasty while you play, pray, ski, or ride in the deep pow. A locking drawstring and gauntlet goes over your wrist to keep snow out. When you have the sniffles, use the non-chaffing mitts to wipe your nose instead of your jacket sleeve.

bought 2 pairs - for wife and daughter

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

February 2015 was FREEZING in the NorthEast. I purchased 2 pairs for my Wife and my Daughter... Lake Placid/WhiteFace was -17 on Sunday 2/15/15. Put hand warmers in mitts between the liner and leather in the afternoon - my wife said her thumbs were cold late in the afternoon. My daughter had no complaints ALL DAY...!!! We have used these in ALL conditions so far - frigid cold, cold, temperate, and wet - and I could not be happier with them. Should have bought these YEARS AGO. Used a ruler to measure their hands like Hestra Guide recommends and the fit went well. I have heard you should not dry these mitts with any external source like a radiator or blow dryer as that will effect the leathers ability to repel wind and water - don't know how true it is but kinda makes a little sense to me. I should add here that both my wife and daughter have mild Reynauds - so keeping them comfy and happy on the mountain nullified any concerns about the cost of these mitts. I would definitely recommend them

Not warm for the cost

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

Maybe I have freakishly cold fingers, but I wasn't that impressed with these, especially for how expensive they are. The liner is pretty thin and didn't keep the cold out well when the temps were below freezing.

Unanswered Question

I just purchased a size 8, after measuring. However, my fingers touch the top edge of the mitten, and the stitching at the wrist feels high, right at the heel of my hand (and not my wrist). In other words, wondering if these are just a bit small.

Someone mentioned these stretching out with wear. Is that the case?

What size mitt do I order if my length is 6 inches and circumference is 7 inches?

Responded on

Go with the 7. I measured 7 and 7 and ordered the 6 but it was too short. The 7 fits perfectly.

Unanswered Question

I bought these a couple years ago, but my hands froze in them. I am not sure whether it is because they don't do well in wet spring skiing or if they just lose their waterproof capabilities after a few years. I live in Oregon and Mt Hood can be wet. I was disappointed just because I felt they should be warmer and more waterproof. Anyone else have that same problem?


I am excited to purchase these mittens (my husband has a pair of Hestra gloves that are about 10 years old, and he still wears them to go skiing all the time), but I can't decide what size I need. I printed out the chart and my longest finger is SLIGHTLY above the 7 line, while the rest of my fingers are comfortably below the 7 line. Should I go up to an 8? I generally wear a small in women's gloves, if that helps at all. Thank you!

Responded on

I usually wear a women's small glove and I got the 7! They are perfect. And they will stretch out a little bit as you break them in, so I would go with the smaller size! If you plan on wearing an additional liner underneath, you could size up to the 8... If not I would go with the 7!
Let me know if you have any more questions!

Responded on

I measured 7 length and 7 circumference but I tend to wear small and extra small in everything. I ordered the 6 to start but too short. The 7 fits perfectly!

Warm and Durable

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I got these as a gift for a friend and she LOVES them! Super warm and durable. The only thing is the white gloves get dirty really quick!! Clean them with some Nikwax and we'll be all set to go!

Here's a link to Hestra's care guide:
Since these do have a leather palm, I would focus on #5 which says, "We do not recommend washing leather gloves frequently. If you do wash them, put on the gloves and wash with soap and lukewarm water. Squeeze out the water gently without twisting. Models without several layers or leather can be machine-washed at 40°C or less."

Measure up!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I was worried about buying these for my sis as a gift, but the sizing chart is a big help! Seriously.. use that thing. Our hands are about the same size so I measure mine, and they fit her perfectly! She reported back and said they were super warm, a great fit, and she liked the liners. Win!

+1 this.
I also bought these as a gift. Measured her hands, used the chart, and they fit perfectly.

Take measurements and use the sizing chart, people!

So, I wear wrist guards for boarding....

So, I wear wrist guards for boarding. Without them I would probably order a small/ medium. Does anyone recommend that I size up to a large? I don't want to look like I have lobster claws.... Thanks!

Responded on


What type of wrist guards are you using / what size? If we can see what wrist guard your using and the profile / size of the product that'd help in our recommendations.

Also, just as an FYI, take a peak at the sizing chart as Hestra gloves do not go by Small, Mediums or Larges. They have a numbered sizing system which is far better.

I wear size small Dakine mitts. What is...

I wear size small Dakine mitts. What is Hestra's equivalent size?

Responded on

Hey Ann,
Thanks for reaching out to us!
Hestra's sizing is going to be a little different from Dakine's, so it would be best to simply re-measure your hand to fit it to Hestra's sizing.

Thankfully, Hestra makes this nice and simple by including a printable guide in the size chart.
Just click on the link that says "Size?" and it will open up the size chart for you.

Please feel free to chat with us if you have any other questions!

Everything and more

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

These mitts are just what I was looking for - easy on/off, incredibly warm, removable liner (easy to remove, too). Went skiing with a party of 12 - over half commented on the great wrist straps and wished for them on their gloves. The elastic wrist straps made it easy to work with bare hands and not lose a glove. My hands were always warm. They do run a wee bit small.

Put simply, my wife's hands are warm

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

There was always one ski day conversation I could depend on. I am happy to say, we now have time to talk about the fun stuff as she has been in love with these since she got them over the holidays. Tahoe has had some cold days and there still has not been that dependable old conversation.

Best Ever!

I have always had very cold hands and had never really been able to find anything to keep me warm. Finally I found these while teaching skiing in Breckenridge (AKA Breckenfridge) CO and they saved my life. Not only are they extremely warm but they have awesome wrist straps (very important as a kids' instructor who has to take off and put on mittens 1000 times a day) and the liner is removable and stays soft and warm after washing. After two seasons in CO I coached for a season in Maine and my now old mittens STILL kept me extremely warm. Two seasons later I think its finally time for a new pair but they were definitely worth the money and lasted an amazing amount of time.

Incredibly warm!

My hands get very cold for some reason. These did the trick and I was so thankful. Absolutely the warmest gloves I have ever had. If your hands are always cold, definitely go for these!

Simply put, these mitts are amazing. I bought these for my wife who has always had cold hands. She loves them. We went skiing at Vail when the temps were in the single digits and her hands were sweating at times. This mitt also has very good dexterity for something this warm. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it in my opinion. If you always have cold hands, don't hesitate to pull the trigger on these. You won't regret it. Can't wait to get a pair for myself.

It's Warm!

My hands are usually cold when I ski, so I almost always wear mittens. Hestra Heli Mitt kept my hands toasty, without warmers, during a windy, chilly day (around 20F, felt like 14F). It kept me warm until lunch, before I used warmers for the rest of the day. Hestra Heli Mitts lived up to expectations.

In Love

This mitten is amazing. I've always been a sissy about cold hands when I ski, but these gloves do the job. Only one day this season have my fingers even been chilly and that was while a storm was blowing in. The wrist cuff is way handy...I can't imagine not having that feature now. My favorite glove EVER.

warm mitts

Great mittens for cold hands, most days. I feel the size runs a little small. Normally I would be a size 7, definitely a "medium" women's hand for most gloves and mittens, and I had to exchange my 7s for 8s, which are still snug (but right for not being overly bulky, I think). For the coldest days I still need something warmer.

Does anyone know whether these mitts are...

Does anyone know whether these mitts are waterproof or not? I'm from WA and ski all over the PacNW n I definitely need some waterproofing...

Hi kpencil,

The Women's Heli mitt's shell is made of windproof, waterproof and breathable HESTRA Triton/Polyamide.

If you're partial to Gore-Tex, I'd recommend checking out the Hestra XCR Mitt - it is very similar to the Heli Mitt in terms of fit and warmth; the main difference is the XCR has a Gore-Tex insert combined with the HESTRA Triton shell fabric. This waterproofing combination might give the XCR an edge over the Heli Mitt on the wettest days; however, for the majority of days on the hill, either of these mitts will be excellent.
