Just what I was looking for.

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

January 1984, I purchased leather down filled mittens for $80 while at Sugarbush, VT. Finally had to replace those mittens and picked the Hestra Henrik Windstedt Pro Mitt. Love the leather, the feel of the material inside and the cuff at the wrist. Best part is the handcuff that allows you to take off your mittens and not drop them. Mitten inside is like a glove feel but I had no problem with my hands staying warm (I wear a fleece wristy with mittens so there is no gap between mitten and jacket).Hope these last another 30 years!

Good but not super warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I run warm. Fingers never really cold. These.. My pinkys were cold on a 30f day. We will see. I like they are all leather. Seem like they are made well. Oh and i am a 31 yr old male. I notice women have been commenting a lot on hestra, so thats my 2 cents.

Best Mitt Ever Made!

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

I am on the third 100+ day season with these mitts. I use them almost every day unless it is spring-like warm. They seem to have a temperature control built in them so they are not too hot when it is warm and warm when it is cold. I admit that when it is really cold, I use the little 'Hottie" heater packs to keep comfortable. My gloves show no wear even after hard use for all those ski days. The "keepers" are a must and are a little different than those on other Hestra products. The only warmer set-up that I have is the Heli Mitt with the Heli Glove liner in it, and this is just a little warmer maybe because of the long gauntlet. I will buy another pair if I am ever able to wear these out!

Does anyone know how these compare in...

Does anyone know how these compare in warmth to the heli mitt and/or the skicross mitt? Is there a definitive answer to which hestra mitt is the warmest?

Best Answer Responded on

The warmest Mitt is the electric one! Otherwise these are comparable to the others. They have finger compartments, so they feel warmer to me than the Heli Mitt. I converted my Heli's by putting in a Heli glove liner and that made them warmer. The Expedition Mitt might top all for warmth, but I have not used them.

Warmest, Softest Mitts

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

These mitts are the warmest and most comfortable mitts, I have a crush on them. If your hands get cold easily these are life savers. The leather is super soft and the interior feels like heaven for your hands. If you would like a pair of mitts and don't need the super, duper cold weather mitts try Hestra's Fall Line mitt- they are not as heavy duty. The wrist strap that comes with the mittens are invaluable- it makes it so easy to rip the mitts off and not worry about losing them.

To keep the mitts in good shape (the leather from drying out) and their waterproofness up, I continually put on the Hestra goop that comes with the mittens. It's good to lube them up before you even wear them.

I think these mitts fit true to size, I wear a size 7 and I have about a medium sized woman's hand.

Great Mitt For Cold Days

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

These are my go to gloves for cold days (<0F in the AM) when I don't need the dexterity of the Henrik Pro Glove. I.e., I'm not sledding, working with ropes, etc. My hands are usually the first things on my body to get cold but when I'm wearing these mitts it leaves that job to my feet. Some people think the wrist loops are a little goofy, but after rocking them for a season there's no way I'd ski without them. They leave your hands free to move instead of awkwardly sticking them under your arm pit or dropping them off the chair. I treat my gloves with the accompanying balm or a similar store-bought balm to make them a little more supple and to up keep the leather. Not totally required, but it helps give the gloves a little more life and maintains the feel.

Best gloves ever!

Normally I have a hard time finding gloves that are able to keep my hands warm, but these nail it! After a recent trip to the Silverton, I didn't once think about my fingers stay warm. Durability seems to be really good. Very comfy fit, love em!

Fit snug but are amazing!

  • Gender: Male

I originally ordered these in a size 8 after measuring my hand. That ended up being too snug. Luckily my better half decided that she wanted them and so I ordered another pair in a size 9. They fit perfectly!

Awesome Mitt!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super comfy and warm. Plush leather breaks in nicely and feels great on your hands day after day! Love the handcuffs too...Never lose a mitt off the lift again!

How warm are these mitts?

How warm are these mitts?

It is somewhat of a subjective question as it largely depends on the person using the gloves and what you are doing. For someone using them while actively skiing they should be warm down into the single digits. For just standing around maybe into the 20s or 30s. Again it is somewhat subjective.
