One of my favorite ski pieces!
I am usually a mitten kind of person, but when I am active and skiing all day, these do the job! I also love the Hestra Wrist Collars. The wrist collars are awesome. I can go an entire day of skiing while fully never removing the gloves. They have help their shape well. I was worried about the white leather, but it has help really well and have not seen any staining yet. These gloves have held up super well and kept me dry and warm!

For $150 they’re junk
They were cold and wet and a huge disappointment. Customer service wouldn’t even exchange and the shop we got the gloves at said no returns.... waste of money my last pair of $60 burtons did a better job than these. JUNK

Quality Warm Gloves.
I would give these a 5 star but in the morning or end of the day my hands got a tad cold. I have bad blood circulation so I prefer the mittens but I wanted to give the gloves a try. If you have good blood circulation these gloves are siiiiick! Hestra offers so many different sizes & colors so they really can fit anyone. Stick to the size guide and treat the leather at least once a year.

Hestra makes great gloves!
Hestra makes great gloves. They're really well built. Solid and functional. Hestra gloves will last you a lifetime. I got two different pairs for kids. With quality winter gloves you really do get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

Gave these as a gift to a friend and she loves them. Right amount of insulation to keep the hands warm but not too much to sweat a bunch. Water proofing after about a month of usage is still holding up well too!

Had To Return
Very disappointing, fingers are too short in these gloves for my hands. That said, I'm 5'10 and have really long fingers and narrow palms. Wanted to love, but even the size up didn't help. Ended up purchasing the mittens.

Wet and cold but good in theory?
I wanted to like these. I will say they are soft and comfortable; the fit is excellent and they offer good dexterity. That said, I used these in a variety of climates and conditions, ski touring; inbound skiing; cold and dry; mild and wet; spring and mixed; and regretted it every single time. These are absolutely not waterproof in the PNW; they are just warm enough for the typical 31 degree weather we get outside of Seattle; anywhere else they offer no insulation. I brought these to Alaska and BC and my hands were warmer in fleece liner gloves. I’m bummed because I wanted something that performs like these should.

They held up very well. They did well to keep the snow out !!!

White Leather Gets Dirty Quick
Love the gloves but wish there was an option that did not have white leather on the palms. I’ve worn mine a few time for walks and hikes with my dogs and there are already getting dirty.

waterproof, unless its damp out
I purchased the Hestra Heli gloves and used them once for a night ski session (3 hours). Thumbs got wet and cold in about 1 hour. Rest of glove was fine. Was snowing moderately with no rain. Contacted Hestra customer service by email and was told not to use while snowboarding (?) or in the whole pacific northwest. Sent gloves to their warranty department for a check - they said the glove is fine. Would recommend pretty much not at all.

I'm very sorry A. you had a bad experience with our product Sunna K., and B. were given that answer by our customer service member. I will walk over there and show this to them immdeiately. Just wanted to let you know that if you are located in the PNW and do Snowboard I would personally recommend the Gore-Tex version of this model. That should definitely do the trick. Please contact customer service and have your call transfered to me for any further help. Marc

I had a similar issue in PNW; these are useless here.

I’m happy I’m not the only one who went through the same thing. My husband boycotts Hestra because of their customer service.

Palms of my hands stayed nice and warm, but my finger tips where just cold all day long. I used these in PC on warm sunny days, and down low they where ok I could wiggle my fingers to warm them up, but once we hit the top it was miserable. No way was I going to try time on a real cold snowy day (if one shows up).

Rita, I'm sorry they didn't work for you the way they should. That is one of the warmest gloves we offer, so perhaps it might be a sizing issue with the pair you purchased. Did you know that our gloves are sized off of your shoe size? Feel free to call into our customer service dept and have your call transfered to me so we can discuss and hopefully get you dialed. Marc

Not warm enough
Bought these gloves last year and just got a chance to use them skiing in Utah. Clear sunny but cold day. The first run down the mountain fingers were FROZEN. Got a pair of liners to use with them and hands were fine the rest of the day. Not sufficient for me.

Recommended... Or not.
I liked the feel of the gloves. The gloves (cuffs) were to long for my purpose. I needed more dexterity than the gloves allowed. Also being white they would not be easy to keep clean.

Hestra is the only glove/mitten I will wear. I am a person who has always had cold hands. Well no more. These gloves are great for those blue bird days or out in the back country. These are my second pair of Hestra gloves and I love every inch of them. However I do recommend using sno-seal instead of the Hestra balm I have found that it doesn't change the color quit so much and keeps the leather softer.

Most of the guides we skied with in AK used Hestra gloves so they were a natural consideration when my old North Face work gloves wore out. In temps above 0F these are excellent gloves and keep your hands very warm, waterproof performance is as good as it should be. Sizing based on the chart is a bit tight though I had to send mine back and go a size up.
January 31, 2010
This is my 3rd or 4th pair of Hestras and they're great in anything above 10F for alpine skiing in CO. They do run a tad tight. I wear a very thin wool liner to combat sweaty hands and have them last longer. Below 10F if out for extended periods I need to work to keep my fingertips ok.

Can anyone suggest a truly waterproof...
Can anyone suggest a truly waterproof woman's glove to be used in a downpour, not in snow, that still allows use of the fingers such as buckling large buckles, scooping grain, etc...? Thanks, Aine
December 4, 2009
no glove that has good dexterity will really be waterproof in an extended downpour. try a neoprene glove, it will get wet but will keep warm. I don't see a simple one for sale on this site but check a general sports store. Fishermen and kayakers use them.

I agree with AC that about the only glove that's really going to be completely waterproof in pouring down rain for hours is probably one of those lovely yellow rubber kitchen gloves. That said, you should be good in quite a bit of rain with some gore tex gloves, here's a few: - http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Hestra-XCR-Short-Glove/HES0092M.html - http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Hestra-Army-Leather-Gore-Tex-XCR-Glove/HES0023M.html - http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Marmot-Randonnee-Glove/MAR0067M.html - http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Norr%F8na-Narvik-Gore-Tex-Short-Glove/NRA0034M.html - http://www.backcountry.com/outdoorgear/Black-Diamond-Guide-Glove-Mens/BLD0767M.html There's plenty of other gloves out there as well that use some form of gore-tex for waterproofing, these are just a few. Many of them probably come in a womens version as well, I know the BD Guide glove does.
