- Q & A
good if you have meaty hands and fingers
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I really wanted these gloves to work for me, but am returning them due to the size. My fingers are relatively long and thin and my palms and wrists are also somewhat thin; think typical tall person hands but nothing too crazy. I purchased an 11 to accommodate for finger length, which was spot on, but the palm portion of the glove is pretty loose and so it the wrist. You need meaty fingers and hands for these gloves to fit properly. Taking a couple stars off for sizing alone feels justified as I've owned a fair number of gloves in my life and have never had to return any due to sizing issues.
All this being said, the quality of the materials is impressive and I'd expect these to last for a really long time. Had these gloves fit my hand a bit better, I would have been happy to keep them.
After several times wearing them, a rip developed at seam on the ring finger ( left glove). Glove is fairly warm though.
Low Profile but Warm
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These gloves fit close against the hand and look thin but once they are on the hand they feel much thicker. The palm of the glove is the thinnest part making it easy to pick things up. The wool backer keeps your hands warm and lets the glove breathe a little more then a full leather option. The brown leather band on the bottom of the glove does cover the wearers wrist but it can be flipped up for less coverage and more flexability.
Im excited to use these gloves in everything from skiing to driving my car. The winters in Utah can get so chilly that having an extra pair of gloves for every day use is handy
For reference i am 5'5", 150lbs, and my recommended size is a 7 but i size down to a six due to the finger length on the glove fitting me better. It is tight on my hands but the leather and wool stretches a little to comform to my natural hand shape
If you do not know your size in Hestra gloves there is a handy size chart (punny right?) that you can use to pick the right size for your hands.
Classy AND Warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got a compliment on these gloves the first time I wore them out. I love them. They fit my fingers a little weird only because I have long skinny fingers and the fingers on these gloves are a little wide for me. It doesn't make them uncomfortable however. Just takes a little getting used to. I was concerned about the durability of the wool but so far it's holding up really well.
