A glove that's as warm as a mitten.
Keeping your fingers warm on a chilly chairlift can feel as impossible as stopping the sun from rising, but Hestra's Alpine Leather Primaloft Women's Glove has the potential to save your digits. A luxuriously warm glove filled with Primaloft insulation and lined with seriously soft brushed polyester, it provides mitten-caliber warmth with excellent dexterity, so you can grip your poles and pull your zippers without feeling like you need to take your gloves off first. The glove's cowhide leather has been impregnated with water-resistant wax, so moisture won't soak in and make your hands even colder, and the knit cuff has a hook-and-loop closure to ensure that snow doesn't sneak in and melt.

- Q & A
Warm and comfortable fits as expected. Can’t speak to durability as they’ve only been used on one trip, but so far so good.
Well Made Pair of Gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Hestra makes the best gloves in my opinion, and these are no exception! The quality/construction of the glove is top notch, and the lining is super soft. I haven't worn these on a super wet day, but in dry conditions these keep my hands pretty toasty and comfortable.
Warm and Soft
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My wife typically has circulation problems and most gloves don't keep her hands warm, but after one day in her new Hestras she was in heaven and her fingers were super warm. Everyone is different though so you never know. I can only speak on her experience with them and she loved how soft they were, the good fit to her fingers and warmth.
Stylish but my fingers are frozen!
I bought the white ones. First, I got them a snug fit from a recommendation. According to a blog I read leather would loosen and be more comfortable. Better to have a snug fit, they say. Iâve worn these four times since Iâve bought them and theyâre still pretty dang snug! Also, my fingers get sooo cold. Iâve worn them at whistler where it was 25 degrees at the top and My hands were uncomfortably freezing. I tried to use liners inside, which helped, but the gloves were so snug that it was difficult putting them on with the liner. The glove got dirty quickly which was expected since itâs the white colour, but even when I attempted to clean it with a leather cleaner it didnât work well. Lastly, a leash doesnât come with these - a bit disappointing. I bought the leash separately and attached it to the tags inside the glove. The right tag ripped off after the 4th use so I poked a hole in the leather instead. I wanted so badly to love these as they were so cute and stylish, but it really falls short on warmth, fit and durability.
Superior all around gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I own 6 different pairs of Hestra gloves (bit obsessed with them) and these are a great introductory pair to what Hestra offers. Not flashy and ornate as some of the other choices these offer great value and protection for the colder parts of the year. Can be used for style or functionality. I've worn these with dress clothes, for work, and adventuring and they have excelled at each occasion. I'd buy them again in a heartbeat but if taken care of they will last quite a long time. The only downside to these is that they need waterproof protection for damper or wet conditions if you want to put them through the ringer. #goatworthy
well made, warm
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 7
- Height: 5'5"
- Weight: 120lbs
Bought these as a gift: Very well made and offers superior warmth without having to compromise on style. The waterproof and durable nature of the gloves makes it an ideal candidate for winter sports. Fits true to sizing guidelines provided on the site (both backcountry and hestra). I plan to bring these on a snowshoe adventure in Tahoe this January where temps will be <20 degrees and wet. I would highly recommend these to a friend.
