I frolic mostly at Snowbird,Utah.In the off season, on an extra double top secret trail in Utah that goes to "mystery mountain."

Jarrett's Bio

I'm getting OLD but do my best to stay young at heart and active outside. However, I am old to most of you fellow geeks out there. That means I do have, perhaps, some experience you may not. So, read my reviews and know they are filled with knowledge and helpful tidbits.READ BEFORE ME AND BE WISE!!! Live in Utah and love to ski, I'm a volunteer host at Snowbird and you can call me Huggy, a nickname given to me because, yes, I hug pretty much everyone I meet. I have an awesome St. Bernard named Brutus that goes to the backcountry warehouse with me when I pick stuff up. If you are in SLC around 3300 So and 3042 East in the mornings or on your way to ride, stop by my drive-thru coffee shop, Java Express and say hello! Brutus may be there as well!

I bought the Hestra Heater Gloves two years ago. I bought them after having a GREAT experience with the heli-3 finger glove, which I simply loved. However, they wore out (the liner) after four years. (I wasn't aware I could go on the Hestra website and order a new liner, but I will). The outer shell is worn but still in great shape!
Anyhooo-I had received slight frost bite in two of my fingers on my right hand years ago and this was my concern. I'm a ski host at Snow Bird and I'm out in the cold for the better part of 8 hours on the days I host. I appreciate gear that works and exceeds my expectations, especially when it comes to warmth. I bought these heated gloves, predicated on the performance of the 3-finger, which was awesome.
Last year, the first year I used them, they worked good enough. I was disappointed in the battery life- and I was aware of using them on the lowest setting for as long as I could, then bumping them up when needed, etc- as the directions recommend. They did work pretty well, but for the price, eh, I was okay with them. However, this year? Well, they just don't work as well. I would not buy these. However, I WOULD buy the three finger and use the money saved for adult beverages after your ski day is done.
A few minutes ago I ordered the Hestra Army glove and I'm excited to try them out. If they are as good as the 3-finger glove, I'll be more than happy with their performance. And as I said, I'm ordering a new 3 finger glove liner so I'll hopefully have 2 Hestra products I'm excited about using. I will be taking back these Heater Gloves when I'm on the Backcountry side of town (live in Sandy Ut). I feel these aren't a true representation of the quality or reliability Hestra provides.

I'm 5'10", 220 lbs. Ski The Bird primarily-ski everywhere but not crazy- don't do backcountry except for this site (badda-bing! I gotta million of em...)soooo, ski Dynastar now and really like them. But, I'm looking for a fatter, new ski and I'm open minded. So, here are the questions;
Looking at the Line Prophet 100 and/or the Line SFB...the SFB is only available in 172 so that might be a bit short. However, I'm interested in what ya'll may have to say about these two products. What say you?
