    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.

    Hestra knows gloves!

      These gloves are absolutely the best. I bought these as a gift for my sister-in-law who's was known to have trouble keeping her hands warm on the slopes/ and in cold weather. These gloves did the trick and kept her hand nice and toasty!

      Awesome mittens!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 6

      I always have very cold finger tips and need warm mittens. The coldest temperature I tried them at is 20 degrees F, and they worked perfectly. I bought the ice blue, which look light purple in person. I like the look, style, and most importantly, the warmth!

      Good Gloves

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

      I bought these for my girlfriend. She wore them without the liner the first day and her hands were soaked. Not great for spring riding, but they are extremely warm, even in cold weather. The only downside is the white gets dirty fast.

      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.

      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!

      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!

      Everything and more

      • 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

      • 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!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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.


        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.

              Warm paws!

                Love these mittens. My old gloves didn't do the job anymore, and was tired of frozen fingers. I spent 10 days skiing in Colorado this year testing out these gloves in all conditions. I absolutely love them and not once were my hands cold...even in below zero temps.

                Truly a 5-Star Product

                  I bought these mittens for my daughter hoping she would find some relief from the suffering she experiences from her cold hands. She has had the problem since I can remember. This is especially tough because she was a ski racer for eight seasons and is now a weekend ski instructor and so is out in the cold and snow many hours a day. Through the years we tried different gloves and mittens and hand warmers, but these Hestras have done the trick. She hasn't complained at all. Quite the contrary, she comments on how warm her hands feel. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and so is she.

                  I see you are out of size 9. If I just got the men's Heli mitt in size 9 would that be the same, or would it be too wide for my long-fingered feminine hand?

                  Will backcountry be getting the black and white size 9 back in stock?

                  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?

                  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!

                  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!

                  How do you clean the Hestra Heli Mitt in white...mine are filthy...

                  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."

                  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!


                  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?

                  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!

                  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.

                  I'm considering these mitts but I'm...

                  I'm considering these mitts but I'm hesitating between the men's and the women's version (color not being an issue); got a couple of questions:

                  - is the tether system (wrist strap) that's shown in the pics of the men's mitts also present on the women's version?
                  - fit wise, what's the difference between the two? (Has anyone ever tried on both versions in the same size?
                  - size wise, how baggy do they run? I'm between sizes, should I up- or downsize?
                  - what's the

                  The women's is slimmer and seems to therefore fit me better. However, I ended up getting the men's XCR mitt because it doesn't come in women's-specific. If you do get the women's, try them on before ordering, if possible, because even though they're supposed to be just lower-volume, I found the women's mitt to be shorter in the finger length, too.
