Charles K.wrote a review of Hestra Army Leather Heli 3-Finger Glove on March 13, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I bought these gloves specifically because my hands get cold while I'm snowboarding. I have regular, five finger gloves and when it is cold, my fingers get cold. I also have big hands so I have trouble finding XXL in five finger gloves so decided to go with the lobster glove. Didn't want a straight mitten because I need to have some dexterity to use the ratchets on my bindings.
I got the red and white version and they are just awesome. The cuffs actually keep the snow out very well and the wrist straps are easy to use. They are warm and comfortable.
I can't comment on durability, but I have worn them a few times so far and they seem to be holding up well. The leather part is very soft and stayed soft even after it got wet.
The are only down sides I can see . One is that they are not really a casual cold weather glove and if you don't take the time to put on the wrist straps, the straps hang out pretty far and get caught on things. This is not a terrible downside, but just don't expect to throw them on in two seconds. The other is that, obviously, the three finger part is definitely warmer than the two finger part. This kind of goes without saying since it is not a true mitten, but just in case anyone wanted to be sure.
All in all, its a great compromise between glove and mitten. It looks great and keeps you warm. Definitely worth the money I paid and would buy them again.
