    So warm!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These mitts are awesome! Super soft and warm on the inside, with thin, individual finger slots that keep your cold, wet fingers away from each other after you pull your hand out to work on something. The outside leather is soft and supple. I used SnoSeal on the outside and they are super waterproof and even more durable now.

    Everything you could want in a mitten!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I can't say a bad word about these mittens. I had been eyeing them for some time, but can absolutely say now they are WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT! I followed the sizing guide and got a great fit as a result. We ski in the Adirondacks and these have been perfect to hit the trails with. Definitely recommend treating with the leather condition before first time out and staying on top of it- buy the additional Hestra tin of it. Best thing about these mittens, the surprise when I slipped my hands inside. The mitten exterior with the feel/shape of a glove inside.

    Best mit out there

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm a huge fan of Hestra product. Great mittens - I'll never wear anything else. Take care of them and they will last you forever! 4 stars because sometimes I feel like they could be a little bit warmer but my hands are always cold.

    Roomy, But Definitely Warm!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was really happy with these. I'm learning how to ski this year in the Wasatch range of Utah, and I wanted to buy some high quality gloves or mittens from a reputable company. After some recommendations from friends and co-workers, I went with the Hestra Fall Line Mittens, and I'm glad I did! These have kept my hands warm and dry with my Marmot Evolution liners underneath them (I have poor circulation). These are very good looking insulated mittens with finger stalls on the inside as well.

    Note: These are not really waterproof. The mittens come with a treatment you can apply to preserve water resistance, but the soft, supple leather is not ideal if you plan on building snowmen or skiing in pow really. I took a good amount of falls skiing the other day and you can see the moisture on the gloves build up throughout the day. That being said, I didn't notice any coldness or wetness in my fingers either so take that with a grain of salt. I would rate these as a good resort mitten for sure. Not a ton of dexterity though, so if you want more of that go with the Fall Line Glove model!

    Cons -- they are definitely on the roomier side especially if you have small hands or are small in general. Hestra's size guide goes off of your street shoe, I went down about a full size to a 6 in the mittens (typical street shoe for me is 6.5-7) and I could have easily gone down a smaller size if I wasn't going to wear them with liners. With my liners the fit is the way it should be, but the mittens do pack out with or without liners so take that into consideration as well.
    -- Pricier than most mittens in this performance range as well. The Hestra Fall Line Mitten is great, so if it won't break the bank I say go for it and treat yoself.

    Overall opinion: I like them, and I like them a lot.

    SO WARM

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These mitts are awesome. My hands have always seemed to be chronically cold on the mountain, and after trying out four other pairs, these are finally the ones that keep my fingers toasty and functional.

    The only complaint I have about them - and it's definitely a minor one - is that the tan mitts are a straight-up mustard yellow in person. Definitely not as mellow as they appear on a computer screen.

    Mom Loves Them!

      I bought these gloves in the cork color for my mom for Christmas (I also have the same gloves in the lobster claw) and she loves them! She says that they are super warm and comfortable, she doesn't think about her hands at all while skiing.

      Want these for Myself!!

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

      I ordered these for a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, and they are incredible.

      I ordered the Cork Hestra Fall Line Mitten and they are so cool in person. The liner inside is so soft and warm!

      I'm about to get a pair for myself! Couldn't recommend enough!

      So toasty!

        I have always always always suffer from cold stiff fingers while skiing. I have always worn mittens to combat this but they were still cold. I used these toasty mits this past weekend and it was complete bliss. I’ll never look back

        Toasty Hands

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

        These gloves are all they're made out to be. Extremely warm and super durable, what more can you ask for? I wear a size 9.5 shoe and got a size 8 in the gloves.

        Great glove that stands the test of time

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Hestra gloves we're always something I thought we're too expensive to justify getting, but boy am I stoked I have sent these! Unparalleled in terms of warmth (I love when mitts have fleece lining in between fingers for extra warmth and comfort), and the leather will stand a lifetime of waterproofing if cared for correctly. Can't say enough about the glove!

        Worth the hype.

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

        I've always heard amazing things about Hestra gloves, so I decided that this would be the season I get a pair... And wow, these did not disappoint. I've only used them during the first snowfalls of the season, down to 15 degrees F, but they kept my hands the perfect temp, as well as dry. I really like the Neoprene cuff -- it's really comfortable even when wrapped tightly, easy to remove with your other gloved hand, and slides right into your jacket sleeve. These are unisex sizing, so I got a size 6 (I have, what I would say are on the smaller end of an average woman's hand).

        Didn't win in my product test

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        I did a bit of a product test on my end. I ordered a slew of mittens trying to find the perfect ones. I tested the Hestra Fall Line, the Black Diamond Spark Mitten, the Gordini DT Leather Mitten, and the Gordini Paramount Mitten. Here are my findings on all:

        Black Diamond Spark: These won on so many categories. First, the soft fleece interior has individual finger spots which means warmer hands and better movement and grip inside the glove. When I make a fist, my mitten moves with me. These are insulated and warm, and the real bonus is that they are already treated with a waterproof treatment, which is hard to find in leather gloves. All around winner. Price point sealed the deal and I purchased a small in both colors.

        Hestra Fall Line - these are sooo luxurious. But the leather just felt too soft for heavy mountain use. One grip on a tow line and these things would be toast. But the look, feel, and even smell is superb. They have the individual finger slots like these Black Diamond ones, but they don't feel as insulated, and they also are not pre-treated with a waterproof treatment - you have to do that work on your own.

        Both Gordinis (combining into one category because they are so similar): These are both good mittens, but they just didn't match up to the BD Spark. I didn't like how my hand felt inside them. Whenever I would make a fist, my fingers would actually move inside the mitten and the mitten would stay stationary. In other words, not having the individual finger slots like the two above turns out to be bulky and rigid. They do have wrist straps which is nice when removing on the chair. They feel warm, but neither are completely waterproof, meaning you'll have to treat these on your own with a waterproofing treatment, which is a pain and can leave a mess on your other clothes.

        Trust me - buy the Sparks. You won't regret it.

        best mittens hands down!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I'm a glove guy but got tired of cold hands on cold ski days i.e. below 20 degrees. This mitten solved the problem beautifully. The construction is outstanding. Durability is outstanding and fit and finish for skier type activities is the best. I would highly recommend them with no reservations. If wearing mittens doesn't fit your image...get over it and enjoy warm hands. You will love those cold moments so much better. In addition, they are worth the money spent too.

        Bad MAMAJAMA

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

        These fall lines are SAWEET. I picked up a pair of these in the brown color and they are awesome. The leather quality is saweet and the cuff is nice and low profile for easy under cuff.

        When sizing Hestra gloves you usually want to go around your shoe size, for me i usually down size about a 1/2 a size to account for the leather packing out, so to speak.
        The lining in these gloves is also superb and top notch, absolutely toasty

        So Warm

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        When it's super cold these mitts are the way to go. Easily the warmest mitts I have ever worn. Fit great and the individual finger slots are a nice touch. Hestra gloves are some of the highest quality out there and these are no exception.

        Everyone loves a good pair of mitts!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Warm and surprisingly soft, Hestra's fall line mittens have become a necessity. Unlike some gloves/ mittens, the leather was supple to begin with, allowing you to skip the stiff break-in phase of most leather gloves. The interior portion has a built in mini-glove for your fingers, which I feel helps aid in the dexterity of the mitten; these mitts also have a Velcro strap at the base so you can eliminate any free space where snow always seems to find a way in. Honestly, I'm not sure you could find more practical, comfortable, or durable mitten than these. My only complaint is that they seem to run a size small, so I'd advise getting a pair slightly larger than what you're used to.

        awesome gloves!

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

        I went on a trip to Jackson Hole, WY and decided to finally grab a pair of warm mittens. These mittens are so soft inside and feel great and my hands stayed warm all weekend! The only problem I had was that the inner lining of this mitten had a small hole in the pinky finger, but Hestra has a great warranty program so I will be sending them in to get replaced.

        How do these gloves hold up for skiing? I've worn other hestra's skiing in really cold and sometimes wet conditions and they preform very well. compared to maybe a heli are these meant for skiers also?

        I find them to be amazingly warm (and believe me-- I get really cold hands, so this is no small feat!). I have found that my mittens do get quite wet and saturated after a few hours in typical New Zealand snow conditions. Treatment with the included leather conditioner did help a bit, but I'll be needing to try with some Nikwax or similar. Don't get me wrong-- they work great for skiing, but they may just need a bit of TLC to get them behaving optimally.

        can one drive with the mittens until the car warms up please, operate controls etc.,? THANKS, nigel

        Best Answer

        Hi Nigel

        I regularly drive and operate controls with mittens on during the winter--I don't even own gloves. Most everything can be accomplished with just the dexterity in your thumb and the rest of your hand stays warm. Hope that helps!

        Hi Nigel-- I've only just gotten my pair of these Fall Lines (and they seem super warm and comfy!). I'd be confident to drive a car in them-- you could definitely use turn signals, etc., but yeah: maybe nothing requiring precise one-finger presses or anything.

        What temperature range are these good for?

        Best Answer

        These mittens have a great range of temps they perform well in and I wouldn't hesitate to make them my go-to winter mitt. Sooooo comfortable and warm without the stiffness; allows for easy movement and grip. For more info, read my review above
