How to Care for Your Hestra Gloves

Hestra gloves are made to last. With some love and care they will last even longer. Good for you, good for the environment. Here are 5 tips for a long life:

1) Grease the leather regularly and it will resist moisture, wear and tear better. Moisten the leather a little first. Use a polishing cloth and rub in the grease until the leather is saturated. Do this in the evening and the grease is absorbed during the night.

2) If you have gloves with breathable materials like Gore-Tex, you should avoid silicone impregnation. It clogs the pores and reduces the material’s breathability.

3) With the carabiner clasp that comes with some models, you can easily attach the gloves to a backpack. In that way, you don’t risk losing them, and they can dry without losing shape.

4) Dyed leather may stain clothing when wet, so don’t place a wet glove on other garments. Choose a model with a natural leather color if you do not want to risk bleeding.

5) Gloves rarely get damaged while skiing. Instead, the edges of skis and boot buckles are normally the cause of damage to your gloves. Be careful when handling your skis or boots!

The Hestra Glove System

The Hestra Glove System is based on the layering principle – the idea of wearing many different functional pieces of clothing. By using layers of gloves, you can regulate the temperature according to the weather conditions and your activity level.

1) Next to your skin, wear a liner that carries away moisture and creates a thin, warming layer of air around the skin. You should keep it on to avoid contact with cold surfaces when performing tasks that require finger dexterity.

A thin liner worn inside a glove increases heat by about 20 percent.

2) The base glove is the one you use most frequently. It keeps your hands warm in normal cold conditions, wicks away the moisture and provides protection against wind and moisture. The base glove is available with a fixed or removable liner. Having a removable liner makes it easier to regulate the temperature.

3) Shell Gloves are a layer of added protection that you pull on when it’s biting cold, wet or if you’re standing still for prolonged periods. This creates another layer of air that insulates against the cold. With a liner and shell glove, insulation increases by approximately 50 percent compared to only wearing a base glove.

Shell Gloves should be generous enough to leave room for a large volume of insulating air.
