Workhorse glove!

Familiarity:

Fit:
Runs small

I have about seven seasons (150+) days on these and they’re still going strong. Great dexterity and good warmth for PNW (+20F and warmer). Take care of the leather and these things go forever. I use them on backcountry tours and get through the first 5-6 runs of the day before I switch to a dry pair (after getting them soaked taking on/off skins, etc)—they stay warm, but you can eventually soak them through. Zero issues skiing a full 8 hour day at the resort!

Horrible gloves

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

They look great and i’ve seen them everywhere and am familiar with the brand name. After 1/2 season last year and the same this year, these gloves are packed out and my fingers get brutally cold, especially because it take very little snow for dampness to seep into and through the glove. I felt compelled to warn others even though most love this glove - even I can’t understand it. I need to stick to my Swamy gloves that never pack out and take much colder conditions with no issues.

Hey Kevin, Your personal Gearhead Jean here. So sorry to hear about the gloves not holding up. Thank you for your feedback. I would be happy to help you with a return. I will send you and email today. Thanks, Jean

Well made but sizing an issue

I wear size 9 in my Hestra gloves and mittens and they fit perfectly. I bought these in size 9 as well; the finger length is right but the size of the glove, especially around the palm, is too small given the amount of insulation. The gloves are very tight on my hands reducing dexterity as well as compromising the warmth. I suggest trying a size larger than your normal size.

I bought the gloves for thinking I would love them rode the in about 40-20 degrees weren’t bad at all. I am from Wisconsin and I used them anything from 19-0 degrees my hands were numb even with hand warmers tried everything. I got mittens the year after thinking they would be better exact same kind and still the exact same problems! If you want an awesome spring ski glove this is perfect!! I would love to have refund but they won’t refund and I just bought them last year!

I’ve been using this glove for 12 years. On my second pair. My first pair is still serviceable but they are a little ripe after a decade of 60+ day seasons. They’ve been everywhere with me. Japan, BC backcountry, Sierras, Montana, Chamonix, Verbier, you name it. Blower pow days, frigid mornings, wet warm days. So durable, comfortable, warm and with the investment since they can be worn for 5+ years and still are as good as the first day. Even better over time when they break in. Def need to wax and condition them From time to time which keeps them in great condition.

Hestra quality

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

I needed to replace my worn out ski gloves and decided to try these out...they're awesome. Fit/finish is great overall and I'm pretty sure my hands will stay warm on all but the coldest days but nothing really keeps my hands warm on those kinda days so it's not meant as a knock. The wrist closure is great...easy on/off. The gloves are reinforced exactly where they need to be and the articulation on the knuckle side is a plus.

beautiful gloves, look super badass. but only wear them for days >30 degrees. these get packed out very quickly and lose all warmth. whenever i wear then i spend most of the time on the lift with my hands balled up within the gloves for warmth!

Best Gloves I’ve Ever Owned

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are the best mix of dexterity, durability, tailored fit and warmth I’ve ever had. Stood up to skiing -16F in Whistler without liners but my hands weren’t sweating skiing in 40F in Park City later in the season. I skied 10+ days in them last season in all kinds of conditions and they were excellent. The dexterity is amazing compared to other gloves I’ve owned. The leather is soft yet durable and develops a nice patina over time. You could pay a lot more for a much lesser glove, I would recommend these to anyone.

True OG

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are for real. Used them 30+ days last year for everything from below zero January mornings at Steamboat in 8"+ of blower, to soggy May afternoons at A-Basin when it was hitting 40. Size up, get liners and these gloves will get you through 90% of conditions (if you're from Texas, move up 2 sizes and wear 2 liners). I moved up one size from Hestra's chart recommendation and they're perfect. I use the Black Diamond Polartec liners.. The only bad thing about these gloves is they make every other pair I have feel lame. They're bombproof, but dexterous enough to tie your shoes with (no joke, I just tried it). I expect to get 200+ days out of these. I doubt the leather will ever become compromised, but I'm sure the insulation will eventually pack out. Worth every penny. I'll be a Hestra customer for life.

Thanks for the awesome review Will!

DEXTEROUS AF

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

You just can't go wrong with Hestra Fall Lines. The DEXTERITY IS UNREAL!!!! You will feel all the things there are to feel with a glove that molds to your hand for a perfect fit, but still keep you toasty in 90% of the temps you're likely to encounter skiing. My previous pair lasted for 8 years before I blew a teeny hole in 1 finger, so I used it as an excuse to get a different color to change things up. Treat them with Nikwax once a season and they'll take good care of you for a long time.

Awesome Gloves

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These gloves are super comfortable, mold to your hand, and I LOVE how they are super easy to slip on and fit under your jacket cuff. I can’t stand how a lot of gloves/mittens these days have these massive cuffs that can’t fit under a jacket. They do get wet but hold a seal pretty well and they are not the warmest but I still feel comfortable with them when it’s 15 degrees.

Hestra gloves

These gloves are super durable and warm for skiing. I've gone through many pairs of gloves in the past, and most of them have ripped. These leather gloves have not failed on me yet.

Not the warmest

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

These Hestra gloves are super nice, durable, stylish but not the warmest. They look sharp, fit great and keep the hands dry however those cold and windy days out on the mountain, you might want to grab the heavier duty mittens.

Clean Cut Durability.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The main reason I bought these is because of how well constructed they are. Built to last, but as others have mentioned, for colder days, it would be better to get yourself into either the mittens or the three finger. I run hot, but my extremities tend to get cold easily, so when it starts to drop into single digits, my fingers do start to feel it on lifts. Great all around glove in all other areas, sizing is spot on.

Great, warm, durable gloves

Familiarity:

These gloves performed very well for me whenever I decided to put them to work. I only took them snowboarding a couple times, but they fit really well and kept each one of my fingers nice and warm.

Felt Great, Not the Warmest

Really loved the fit and feel of these gloves, but I did end p getting pretty chilly in them. Made windy, cold chairlift rides tough. Great glove for warmer ski days though.

Look Good, but no warmth

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The only reason I'd give one star is that the gloves look nice. I'm not a skier nor a snowboarder all I wanted was a pair of gloves to keep my hands warm when walking and playing with my dog at the park. These gloves couldn't keep my hands warm in 32 degree weather, waste of money

Soft, Supple, Durable

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are a must have for anyone who spends the majority of their winter sliding around on snow. The gloves are incredibly soft and supple and you can really notice the high quality of the leather and the craftsmanship. Love how you can get a precise fit using Hestra's numerical sizing. Would also highly recommend some leather waterproofing spray or wax because they do absorb water after several hours during storm days and snowy conditions.

>Rating: 5

Worth It

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The best part about these gloves " for me" was being able to dial in the fit; I love how the fingers arn't bulky with tons of extra material. With that being said I did notice they are not the warmest, but hey they do not claim to be. Also I ended up buying extra glove waterproofing wax, I felt that the cowhide would absorb water making my hands cold.

I refuse to pay this much for a glove made in China or Vietnam? Say it isnt so.

Hey Derrick, IT ISN'T SO! From the Hestra site: The family business Martin Magnusson & Co. was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the small village Hestra, Sweden. Our gloves are manufactured in our own factories and we personally buy all leather, fabric, wool and other materials. This gives us control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. Several of our models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.

I'm heading to Jackson Hole for skiing the week of Christmas, 2019. Trying to decide between these (which were amazingly comfortable when tried on) and the Arcteryx Fission. Looks like WY that time of year is about 25 F high, 6 F low on average. Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi William- We would love to help you find some gloves that will be perfect for your trip to WY, feel free to chat or call us so we can discuss exactly what you're looking for.

Has anyone from the Pacific Northwest/Cascades used these? I am considering for days when it isn't raining/snowing out...but let's face it, nothing stays dry around here and I am hesitant to go with a glove that isn't completely waterproof. Any thoughts?

hey tracy. i recently bought these gloves when i was in whistler. i didn't need a pair because i have some rad mitts but they looked great and the sales person said they were super warm. i'm a pretty "warm-blooded" guy and don't get cold easy. I have to say, these gloves are NOT warm. The conditions I were in I would say was about -10 (celcius) or so, so not the coldest. They were OK while riding but I think the problem is that they aren't windproof. I'm sure they'll be fine in the spring but I would say they are by no means warm.

>Rating:

Is the wax supplied to be applied before first use? Or is it for after several wears? Thanks

Apply before first use to maximize waterproofing capabilities. Apply by heating the glove with a blow dryer first, then apply wax generously, and then heat again to allow wax to seep into the leather. Let dry overnight. I've done this with mine and they're super waterproof. Even in the slop at Park City a few weeks ago when they were experiencing 45-50 degree temps and wet snow. By the way, I found these gloves to be extremely warm.

>Rating:

Any additional waterproofing needed/recommended?

I would suggest using Nikwax Creme Waterproofing for Leather. It will keep the leather conditioned/prevent it from drying out and cracking as well as keep them waterproof. http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-creme-waterproofing-wax-for-leather?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6bmlrd2F4OjE6OTpuaWt3YXg&skid=NIK0059-ONECOL-S34OZ
