I have used this glove for two seasons now. They are durable, comfortable, and generally warm. I suffer from cold hands, and these keep my hands warm as long as the temperature does not go below 20 F.

I conditioned these gloves with the Hestra supplied salve when I first got them, and then with another product the next winter. They have remained soft and supple. I never force dry them.

I wore these on a particularly wet day this winter when the temperature was around 28 F and snowing big, wet, heavy flakes. The gloves remained dry inside, but the leather on the palms were getting wet. The leather is not "water proof". This did not affect the performance of the glove.

Type 3+ skier, with 45 years experience all over the world.

Bought this ski to be in between my 170 cm K2 Apache Recons and my 175 cm Ski Logik Raves.

Love this ski! It is not a tight turning tree-basher. It is more like a GS ski with a much wider waist. It is really a do anything ski. Not for the beginner or intermediate. Requires skill and balance. This ski will punish you if you get in the "back seat".

Bought this ski at 170 cm, and mounted with Marker Griffons. Great combination.

Good Goggles
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am on my second season with these goggles and they seem to work as advertised. I have never had them fog up, and have worn them during heavy snow and cold days down in the teens. They fit well with my Giro helmet. I have a medium size face and these fit me well. I find that these goggles block my downward vision more than other goggles I have worn, but once skiing I don't notice it. I found that using these goggles for night skiing is not ideal. They do lighten up, but not enough in my opinion. A clear lens would have been better.
