    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.

    not warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    construction is bomber proof (they will last forever) but I have been very surprised that they do not keep my hands warm below say 25 degrees. all the heavy insulation is on the top of the hand and therefore my fingers get cold from the palm/finger tip side. the mitt also has finger slots so i find i end up balling my hand up inside the same way i would with a glove when my fingers go. using an extra liner helps a little but i still end up using hand warmers below 20 which really surprised me. i do not have raynaud's -- just cold hands.

    I agree, separating the fingers actually makes them colder than if they weren't isolated from another. When it gets really cold, this glove isn't warm enough for me. The Hestra Ski Cross mitt is my go-to since it's very similar but doesn't isolate your fingers.

    Perfect mittens

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are the perfect weight mitten for almost any day on the hill. They stay soft without packing out too much as well as keep your hands extremely warm. Easy to throw a liner under them for extra cold days and stay as toasty as you could want to be. Overall very impressed with the waterproofing and durability of the mittens.

    Nice mitts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everyone knows that your fingers are stronger and warmer when they stick together, these mittens do just that! Not overly bulky, and they have an awesome beefy strap to keep them locked down and cold out. Very solid heavy duty feel, a mitten that with the right care, will last a long time!

    Like Butter, Baby

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These mitts, like all of Hestra's other products, feel like you're putting on Cinderella's glass slippers on your hands. They're incredibly soft and warm, and because they're not bulky you don't lose tactile sensation that you typically do with other mittens. These mittens are not as thick as the Henrik Windstedt mittens, so if you're looking for a pair of mitts that are for those really cold days I would recommend those. These mittens are for milder temps or for someone whose hands stay naturally warmer.

    The neoprene elastic cuff on these mitts are great- they fit snuggly on your wrist so no snow will get in, and they go easily under the cuffs of your jacket. Since the cuffs are neoprene they don't lose their snugness and are easy to dry out.
    Like all Hestra gloves and mittens, the key to making them last is by applying the leather balm on before you even wear them, then keep up with applying the balm throughout the season so the leather doesn't dry out and crack.

    I wish I had seen a review like this before I bought a pair last year. My hands do not stay warm easily and although the construction of these is bomber proof they are not warm. My hands freeze in them below 20 degrees which surprised me. Even with an extra liner they do not stay warm -- there is little insulation on the palm (most of it is on top of the hand) and therefore my hands feel like they get very cold from the bottom of the finger tips/fingers. They will last forever but I had the impression they would be great down to 0 and that is just not the case. I think a mitten where your fingers aren't in 'slots' inside might be warmer.

    So cozy

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

    Great mittens. Very warm and cozy. You can immediately tell these are high quality mitts as soon as you put them on. Havent used them in winter yet so we will so how it stands up to edges.

    Love these mittens

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I always have cold hands but these are so warm and comfy. Besides looking great, they feel fantastic on your hands. My biggest issue is that my son keeps trying to steal them.

    Where Did the Good Mitts Go? Right Here

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    With so many choices, you'll know this glove is a standout when you've put it on. Try it. Soft, supple leather shell is instantly a comfortable fit. No need to break in a stiff glove, because this is not that! The leather outer material is waterproof, windproof, and warm. Can last for years if you treat 'em like you love 'em (see our leather treatments); leather is also typically more durable and pliable than nylon/synthetic materials and is naturally water-resistant. The insulation is warm for the inevitable dips in temp and the glove still breathes when you need it. And, bonus--the Bemberg polyester lining is oh-so-soft as your fingers find their way into the individual finger pockets for additional warmth. I've had this feature in my mittens for years and wouldn't go without it. Worth the investment. Questions on this or other winter accessories, hit me up klindsey@backcountry.com, Expert Gearhead



    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
