    Like a mitten but with dexterity

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These mitts are the bomb! Super warm and with dexterity to boot. Mittens are my normal go to but I wanted more grip. The separate index is the answer. If my index finger gets cold I just move in to the other side with the others.

    Nice, but not all that warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are really nice gloves that definitely kept my hands dry. But - they didn't keep them warm. If you'll be using them in places that are 15 degrees and above I think these would keep you warm. But I live in the high rockies, took them out over 2 weeks trying to make them work, the temps were between -5 to 10 and my fingers were freezing.

    Up to the task

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After 10 seasons of Colorado skiing, my hands are finally staying warm. The hestra 3 finger heli gloves are worth the money as the handcuffs, insulation, leather, water and wind proofing are top notch. I spend hours bombing groomers, cutting through tree runs and demanding a lot of my gear. Over the years i've tried multiple brands, liners, warmers and always had cold hands... until now!
    After a brutally cold and windy days this season these gloves have kept my hands warm and dry, which is new to me. Well made and tough for all mountain conditions. I typically wear a large glove and the size 9 fits great.

    Navy 8

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

    Intro: 1 season of use
    Fit: I have a “medium” low volume sized male hand. Size 8 fits perfectly.
    Performance/Use: These are super warm. Liner is extremely soft. I like the 1-finger-free feature. Wrist strap tightening mechanism works great. Sleeve easily tucks in and end of glove can be tightened so no draft. Only downside is I wish leather wasn’t white, I feel like may get beat up after 3-4 seasons. Otherwise extremely pleased with these gloves.

    Botttle Green

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

    Intro: Warm, functional glove
    Fit: I wear a 7 in Hestra’s women’s specific gloves, small in Swany, North Face, etc and these gloves fit well, with a bit of room if you want to use a small liner, though one is not needed. These have a nice, removable, fleecy liner, which is great.
    Performance/Use: I love these gloves for functional use while skiing etc. The wrist cuffs are awesome because you can take them off on the lifts or whatever and you wont drop them. These are pretty standard on most nice ski gloves though. I like the 3 finger aspect because you get more maneuverability than with a traditional mitten, can do buckles a bit more easily w/out undoing your gloves etc. With this you sacrifice a little bit of warmth, but these gloves are still pretty warm, and probably warmer than 5 finger goves. My hands always run cold, to the point where I’ve considered heated gloves so that being said, if you are that type of person looking for warmth, go with a full mitt.

    Always warm, even when soaked

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Skier from the Pacific Northwest here.
    The liners (wool) keep me warm even if the gloves are entirely soaked. I don't take a spare pair of gloves anymore, I know that my Hestra will keep me warm no matter what. This is my first ski season with Hestra gloves, and I don't understand why I haven't bought them earlier !

    Very Durable, use the NikWax!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wanted to write just to counteract the reviews that say the leather on the palm isn't durable. I have had for 4 seasons. Yes if you pick up your skis by the edges, you may leave a mark on the palm -- but NikWax used regularly keeps the leather soft and supple and the marks fade. The only downside is that after 4 seasons they are not as warm as they were. I am going to get the GTX model, as the rest of the family has these and I believe its worth the upgrade. I am keeping these for the warmer days and expect that they would last another 4 seasons of regular use.

    Too Bad Hestra's Warranty is Worthless

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used these gloves for about one full season, took great care of them, applied Hestra's own leather balm multiple times, and now one glove has two holes in the leather fingers. Surprised? I certainly was. Nevertheless, I knew Hestra's lifetime warranty would surely cover me. That was not the case. I sent pictures along with a description to the Hestra warranty department, only for Hestra to reply that the warranty does not cover holes in their supposed "most durable leather." Despite the two small holes, I've tried to continue using these gloves, however as soon as snow penetrates a hole your fingers get wet and cold. I really have taken great care of these gloves and been very careful with them; I was surprised to find a hole in the leather (of all places), however I was incredibly surprised to find this was not covered under their lifetime warranty.

    My $40 Dakine gloves have lasted 8 seasons and are still going strong. There is no way I would ever spend $140 for Hestra gloves with essentially zero warranty ever again. I really expected more out of gloves that cost so much.

    Best Gloves out there

      So just got through an epically cold two weeks in New England, temperatures below zero and on the hill windchills well below zero. Mother Nature never stood a chance these gloves/mitten combo are the best gloves out there. This is my second season with them and no complaints. The glove handles like a dream and the wrist straps are a glove saver. True to sizing.

      Not worth the price!

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

      I measured my hands and went by hestra ‘s sizing chart. Way too big! I tried them in single digit weather and I was just not impressed.

      Don’t get the hype

        I bought these based on the great reviews but my hands froze below 30. I tried them on multiple conditions and just want satisfied with them other than as a spring or warm day use mitt. I replaced them with a pair of Swany X-Cel mitts and haven't looked back since. These are relegated to snow blowing duty and barely meet the bar for that task

        Nice Gloves

          High quality gloves overall. The leather is very nice and the shape gives you the versatility you need to unzip your coat or bag. You can also change the liner based off of the weather so your hands won't be too cold or too hot. You have to buy liners separate but it's a very cool idea. Can't wait to hit the slopes with these bad boys this year!!

          Ski Instructor's Dream

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have worn these for two seasons of ski instructing. The claw finger adds much need dexterity when I have to zip up the kids' jackets. Plus, they definitely keep my hands warmer than a traditional glove, since it keeps three of my fingers together. And the wrist strap is a god send when taking off and pulling on my gloves all day long. Don't forget to treat them once or twice a season, and you'll be good to go!

          I love these gloves!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 10
          • Height: 6'
          • Weight: 200lbs

          I love these gloves! No sweat, No cold. Just right. I have used these several time s skiing and love how they fit, feel, and keep me warm. Highly recommend them.

          Warmth with Dexterity

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I am the first to start complaining about being cold so the fact that the Kestra Heli 3 can keep me warm on single digit (Fahrenheit) days says something. On my second season now and they have been quite durable but the wrist straps seem to have stretched and the connector cable is starting to tear (replaceable).

          Great Gloves!

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

          I have used these a dozen times. They are incredible. Even when they get wet the wool keeps your hands nice and toasty. When you recondition them with the supplied leather balm, they work like new. I put them under the faucet to test and the water just beaded away it was incredible. As I've described to all of my friends, my Hestra mittens are the equivalent of getting in a hot shower in a cold day.

          Unanswered Question

          I've seen a few questions regarding warmth. I'm looking for a glove intended for extreme cold (say, 10 degrees and colder). I went to Alta last season where some mornings were -15 degrees F at the summit. Was wearing Hestra Fall Line gloves and my fingers got pretty chilled at times. I realize this is largely subjective but would this glove stand up to those extreme cold days? Thanks for the help!

          Any idea on the approximate circumference...

          Any idea on the approximate circumference of the wrist strap? I would like to think that the wrist strap would increase in size with the glove (I'm looking at the size 12), but I have a feeling that could have been an oversight and this won't be a comfortable fit for me

          when I tried these gloves, the wrist strap loosened up very comfortably to get in & out & cinched right down to get a tight fit & pretty "functionally" easy to cinch them down [it is some awkward with one finger out & three in]

          1. What liner is included? 3 or 5 finger liner. NOTE: The Hestra website does sell a 3 finger replacement liner for this glove.

          2. What color is the leather on the grey glove? white or off white?

          Thanks!

          5 finger liner, and the leather is white on the grey glove. Use the grease on the leather often and it won't get soaked. Even when the leather gets wet, your hand stays dry inside. When the leather gets wet it is annoying, though.

          Best Answer

          Inside is a 5 finger liner that is easily removable. It's also not terribly hard to reinsert it.

          The grey glove's leather is white but after applying the oil compound Heli gives you, it's more than likely that the white leather will turn to an off white color.

          my hand is 7.5" long. the size chart says 9. you don't sell size 9, any sugestions?

          I check back often for sizes I need. I usually will check at least twice a day and so far I have got the sizes in several of my stuff this way through Backcountry including a size 9 in this very glove. I call it "Vulturing" caa CAAAA! (You don't have to make the noise for it to work ;-) )

          2 Questions:
          #1: Are the wrist bands removable? I can't quite tell from the pictures.
          #2: Regarding sizing, I have skinny hands with long fingers (size 10 length but size 8 perimeter). Any recommendations which dimension I should size by? Or just go with a 9.

          The wrist band is not removable, it only goes across the palm side of the glove. You should go with size 9 or 10, if in doubt you should usually pick the larger size, as the extra space inside the glove keeps you warm

          How do these "mens" gloves work for a small woman's hand?

          If you measure from your wrist to tip of your middle finger and say it measures out to be 7 inches, then you are a size 7. This glove goes down to a size 6. The men's is definitely a little roomier than the women's version. Women's version is women's specific cut and I would recommend if you have a small hand to go with the women's 3-finger.

          I want something that want leak. The description doesn't state what waterproof breathable membrane this gloves uses. How water proof is this glove?

          This is not waterproof in that it has a membrane. It is waterproof since it is leather. I have these and love them. I once hucked a cliff and a rock caught my skis and I was in the pow digging them out for 20-30 min. After that I noticed they were wet around the seams, but they stayed warm and I did not notice them being wet inside. Hope that helps.

          Best Answer

          If concern about these gloves becoming wet is causing anyone to lose sleep, then check out Hestra's Gore-Tex version which is called the "Trigger Gore-Tex XCR Shell Glove". It comes in black, has the same 3-finger design and it's been used with great success in the Southern Ocean portions of the Volvo Around-The-World Races.

          Are these gloves comfortable without the...

          Are these gloves comfortable without the liners in them? What is the inside lining of the shells made of? When the day warms up, I often pull the liners out of my current mitts and just wear the shells.

          Thanks, Doug.

          They will be comfy for sure. The removable liners are fleece and then even when they are removed the inside of the gloves still has a thin fleece lining. So either way liners in or not you have a comfy fleece lined glove.

          Does the grey version have grey leather...

          Does the grey version have grey leather palms with black back/gauntlet, or do they have the white palm with gray back/gauntlet?The pix here just look like gray palms, but the Hestra website shows the grey as having the palms white and backs grey.

          Exactly how much dexterity is retained with these gloves? I'm looking for winter photography gloves and am curious whether I could operate a camera while wearing these.

          Best Answer

          I would say for camera use, buy these or mitts. I have never had good experience with gloves or mitts while shooting. I take mine off. I may have a super thin liner to help, but when they get too cold, you want to throw them in something that is as warm as possible, ie the mitts or this 3 finger.

          What glove would be warmer the Hestra Heli 3-finger or Black Diamond Guide Glove. What size in the Hestra 3-finger would be the same as a Large in the Black Diamond Guide Glove

          I've got and used both. Similar warmth on frigid Steamboat days. BD guide glove is a bit bulkier (harder to slip into ski poles), but it's waterproof. I'd say if you have dry pow and aren't digging in the snow, get the Hestra. If you're snow is wetter or you're in the snow a lot...BD. I wear a medium in the BD glove and a size 9 in the Hestra 3-finger (but a size 10 in the Army leather spring...go figure.)

          So i have a pair of hestra gore-tex xcr shorts, and they're bomber on the water proof side, but a bit numbing on the chillier days. I figure these'll be great for warmth but how are they water-proof wise? am i gonna miss the gore-tex?

          Hey Jason,

          I've had mine for a couple season on the east coast. I never experienced water go through the leather. If I ever thought the leather was starting to absorb moisture, I would just reapply Hestra's leather balm to those areas after the day was over.

          Would like your opinion on the 3 finger...

          Would like your opinion on the 3 finger glove. my adult son is a carver..you know, those snowboarders who wear hard boots and stand on the board differently than freestylers. I think the 3 finger would be useful locking in, even though the bindings allow a simple snap in. I can't open the sizing chart...size 11 feet, big hands. Is an 11 an xl or an xxl. I'm thinking I need an xl.

          I always go back country and I often have cold fingers. Can anyone advise which gloves to choose:Hestra Heli 3 Finger or Black Diamond Progigy glove. Anyone can tell which one are warmer ?thanks in advanceAlex, marinex@xs4all.nl

          Personally, I prefer the Hestra gloves. BD does a great job, but Hestra thought of every detail in the glove design, and they're just as warm (if not warmer than) the Prodigy glove.Some reasons you'll be happier with the Hestra: wrist cords (keep them from falling off while on the lift), a better 'snow-lock' velcro strap to keep snow out, and one hell of a conversation starter (i.e. 'WTF is on your hands?!')Try 'em and you'll be glad you did.
