Army Leather Heli GTX + Gore Grip Glove

When you're headed out into blisteringly-cold, blizzard-like conditions, make sure your hands are outfitted with the Hestra Army Leather Heli GTX + Gore Grip Glove. Windproof, waterproof, and highly breathable, these gauntlet-style gloves feature a Gore-Tex Grip membrane that not only provides impenetrable protection against winter's worst, but also nimble dexterity for gripping poles or zippers thanks to its tightly-bonded construction.

The glove's inner face features Gore's Wicking Pique layer, which works to pull sweat from your skin and trap precious body heat, ensuring your hands stay wrapped in toasty, dry comfort from first chair to last. Its gauntlet design, with an adjustable elasticized wrist, keeps snow out when it's waist-deep at the resort, and goatskin leather construction blends ideal comfort with tough durability.

  • Warmth, dexterity, and tough protection for cold, snowy days
  • Gore-Tex provides windproof, waterproof, and breathable protection
  • Waterproof goatskin palm and fingers are supple, yet tough
  • Gauntlet length keeps snow out and adjusts easily
  • Elastic around wrist and strap offer secure fit and lock in heat

Burly Alpine Mountaineering Glove

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Several low ratings are undeserved. This is a cold weather climbing mountaineering glove, basically a thick shell glove with synthetic outer covered by leather on the palms, fingers, knuckles, waterproof breathable goretex inner layer, with comfy inner synthetic liner. The tip-off is that the specs and description do not mention insulation. It’s designed for use with a removable liner of whatever thickness you want depending on conditions, or no additional liner at all. I probably won’t use a liner unless 15-20F/minus 9-10C or lower. Solid construction, reasonably dextrous, well built. Hard to find good goretex shell gloves, this is among the very best.

Legit Next Level Glove!

These are a glove that requires a liner sold separately, know that right from the get go and you will be solid. The glove layers are bonded in a way that makes for a very dextrous experience when manipulating devices. I use the NikWax Waterproofing Wax for Leather with extremely good results. The liner of choice is the Monoknit Merino Liner directly from Hestra USA: These gloves are a dream with that particular liner, order the same size as the glove, insert, and enjoy.

Missing liner!

The shell is good, but my gloves came without the liner and Backcountry doesn't carry the liner! And on the Hestra website it is out of stock. Really disappointing to buy gloves an not be able to use them.

To address the negative comments in "NOT WARM AT ALL....", see the following description at Hestra's web site: "Can be combined with several of our removable liners. Sold without liners."" Backcountry should consider updating its description to better align with the product delivered. I just got them. These gloves are of the usual Hestra quality but I haven't used them yet....just wanted to clarify the liner matter.

NOT WARM AT ALL, but keep me dry

I've used it several times

Very misleading marketing description unless I just got a defective pair, you definitely need liners with these gloves - they are not warm in the slightest, they are really just shells with maybe 1mm of insulation beyond the outer shell. I'd have bought a larger size had I known they would be so abysmally cold. I am disappointed, but used the waterproofing right after receipt and will deal with it with liners given that they're not returnable. Go with the cheaper hestra gloves if you want better warmth, these are positively not worth the price. I also have the regular mittens and an old pair of crab-style hestras which have vastly thicker insulation, the latter is 5 years old and received some warranty repair this season and is still much warmer than these which are almost 50% more expensive. This pair is USELESS for snowmobiling without liners, and ok for heliskiing with additional insulation; they do have decent dexterity but should given that they're so thin. :(


I have read that these do not come with a liner - do they have the Velcro/hook-and-loop band inside the gauntlet that other (non-GoreTex) Hestra Heli gloves have to retain the fleece Hestra Heli glove liners that are included on those models? Or are they designed for use with a different style insulating liner?

Hi Jonathan, That's correct that they do not come with a liner. They do have the hook and loop band. Thanks!
