Eric 's Bio

I'm a native Mainer who migrated to WV for education and have had the privilege of skiing in British Columbia for more than a decade now. If it involves being outside and coming home tired, I'm all over it. There is nothing more rewarding than being in a place that makes you feel small.

The quality of the construction of these mitts is excellent, The design is lacking

As a trigger finger mitt configuration, Hestra went and designed a five fingered liner, which greatly decreases the warmth of the mitten.

The leather palm is unlined, and therefore NOT WATERPROOF.

As great as the three fingered (trigger finger) configuration is for warmth and dexterity, Hestra has overlooked these two design flaws, rendering their product less than adequate.

After owning a Marmot trigger finger Mitten from 12 years ago, I was hopeful to recapture the warmth and utility of this genre of glove which is sorely missing from the market.

The gloves are indeed warm. The quality is great. The fit is true to size.

The big drawback is that, contrary to the features listed, the liner is not removable. Thus it loses it's utility in warmer conditions or during periods of greater exertion.

I applaud Marmot for reintroducing the trigger finger mitten, I hope they will convert to a removable liner.

The changes G3 made for this year's skins are definitely an improvement. They climb well, and the adhesive keeps them on the skis. I still notice some patches of adhesive missing after peeling them apart while cold, but these are much less prominent than my older model. The tail clips are cumbersome to deal with as they do not maintain their adjustment between uses.

This is my first AT binding to which I graduated from alpine trekkers. What a joy to leave the extra weight at home. This binding performs extremely well. No unintentional releases, although I had to increase the DIN setting slightly over my normal setting to get the same release pressure of my alpine bindings. I've skied these on ice, bumps, powder and steeps with great results. I notice a bit less response from input when initiating turns, but it is very slight. The simplicity of adjustments is great with a lot of thought having gone into the resistance of snapping the elevators through their different positions. These are a breeze to adjust with a ski pole. The climbing position is very neutral although the forward location of the main pivot makes it hard to step sideways with the heel unlocked, and very hard to regain your feet if your skins slip while climbing leaving you on your toes. I would choose this again for sure.
