There seems to be some confusion regarding this glove. Backcountry has an incorrect description listed above. I think the description above is for the hestra guide glove. So to set the record straight -

Except for the shorter cuff this glove is virtually the same as the heli. It uses a synthetic liner (not wool) which is removable. The liner is exactly the same as that included in the heli glove. Army leather in palm and fingertips (no cowhide). It does not use outseams (for example seen on the vertical cut or seth model).

I just ordered a pair and they are great gloves. The cuff has been slightly revised compared to last year. The zipper was removed. Now there is a single strap with velcro to secure the cuff.

No. The palm/fingers of the glove are leather and the remainder of the glove is nylon. There is a inner synthetic liner which is removable. I have found the combination to be very warm even with temperatures in the teens and sub zero, as many mention below. But even in warm conditions the glove breathes well. Overall, an amazing glove. You can't go wrong with any of hestra's products.

Yes. Patagonia still makes the primo flash jacket, which they had last year (it has a stretch fabric with a fixed hood). Just like the old primo, the powder bowl jacket is a shell with mesh liner, H2No barrier, removable hood and powder skirt. They also make the powder bowl in an insulated version (see question below). It is very similar, but with Patagonia's thermogreen insulation (a synthetic insulation that is recycled).

The best glove I have ever owned (I have tried a lot - sypder, swany, cloudveil etc.) I have used mine for a year, including at Steamboat during sub-zero temperatures. They are extremely warm, and comfortable. The leather conforms to your hand after use. They are very similar to the heli glove except with an under the cuff design. Also the liner is removable. Be sure to use the leather treatment to keep water from soaking the leather.
