    Hestra Jr Mitt end of season

    These holes were described by the Hestra rep as "normal wear and tear" and did not qualify for repair or replacement under their warrantee. My son skied 60 days in them this year. The leather is thinner than the adult gloves which I have for myself and have not had similar issues with. Perhaps that is for flexibility for small hands but it does affect durability.

    Other than this and that the leather palms often were soaking wet (even after reapplying the cream that comes with them), they are excellent mitts.

    Hestra Jr Mitt end of season

    Excellent gloves for little hands

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 3'6"
    • Weight: 39lbs

    Overall
    Hestra's kid gloves are great. They are warm, they fit well, and they are comfy. If you're taking a child up on the mountain then you should really consider buying these gloves

    Value
    Few things make my kiddo want to leave the mountain as much as cold hands. These gloves have been great in keeping her warm and complaint free (at least when it comes to the cold).

    Quality
    Well built and durable. Hestra makes quality kids ski clothing.

    Comfort
    Very comfortable according to what I've seen from my daughter. She's pretty picky when it comes to clothes (if anything scratches I'll never hear the end of it) and I've never heard her complain once about these gloves.

    Best mittens for winter skiing and fun

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

    from my son:
    I am 12 years old and I think these gloves are great.
    Pros: nice wristbands, durable, cool colors, stay on your hands well, keeps your hands dry, grips things well, hands stay warm
    Cons: hard to make snowballs.
    These are the best mittens I have ever had!

    Pricey but Good

      They are obviously very expensive for children's mittens. Fortunately, you get what you pay for with these. They are warm, very well constructed and stay in place all day. My five year old loves them. The sizing chart was a good tool to determine fit.

      Great Gloves

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

      Spendy...but hands down best gloves for my 5 year old who skis 3 days a week all season. Have tried many other options and wish we had just gone with these from the start. The key piece is the big gauntlet that he can easily get on over his jacket cuff. He always needed hand warmer packs and since using these that has not been necessary. I need a pair!

      Unique option in kids mittens

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 5
      • Height: 4'5"
      • Weight: 60lbs

      These are (one of?) the only kids mittens with a removable liner. In addditon, they only have one layer of fabric in the shell. Most have a waterproof insert in between the shell and the lining.
      The net result is that these are not super waterproof, BUT, they breath much better, and you can take the liners out at lunch and dry them. This means that on a cold day, you child will have warm, dry mittens (=warm, dry hands) in the afternoon too, not just in the morning.

      NOTE: these are not quite as thick as the adult mittens.

      Add to this the same great cut and features of the adult Heli Mitts:
      -Best in class cuff: not to long, no short, easy to cinch.
      -Best ever wrist leashes, super comfy and secure, in a kids specific size
      -Durable leather palm and finger tips

      Warm hands = Happy kids!

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

      Hestra makes the best gloves for kids, period! Soft, removable, washable fleece liner makes these easy to keep clean. Shell keeps hands dry while playing in the snow or skiing. Wrist strap keeps them from being dropped off the lifts or falling in the snow when they pull them off their hands. Room for hand warmers as well. Best investment and payoff for happy kids and warm hands.

      These are NOT Gore-Tex. They use a proprietary waterproof fabric on the back, and leather on the palms. As a result, they are NOT waterproof. However, it will take a long time for them to wet out, and if you remove the liner, they are much easier to dry than gloves with a Gore-tex insert.

      Warm kids are happy kids

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Warm kids are happy kids and every parent knows that. That's why these are the best mitts for children. A Gore-Tex shell insures that their little hands stay dry, and with a removable liner for insulation you can keep their hands warm. Since the liner is removable you are able to wash it which is great for kids. I'd recommend these to anyone who needs the best mitt that is durable and will keep your little one's hands toasty!

      Just like the adult ones, these are NOT Gore-Tex. They use a proprietary waterproof fabric on the back and leather on the palm. The seams are not taped either. This keeps cost down, and makes the mittens more breathable, but it does mean they are NOT waterproof. If the leather is maintained well, they will keep dry for a while.
      They will dry much better then gloves with a waterproof insert though.

      THE BEST GLOVES / MITTENS FOR KIDS

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

      We have 4 kids and spend ~50 days on the mountain each year. We tried other gloves in an effort to avoid the expense of these gloves times 4. Ultimately we bit the bullet and got these. After we did it we regretted waiting so long. Our kids no longer complain about cold fingers, not matter the conditions. Their hands stay warm and dry all day. And the removable liner is awesome for drying quickly. We treat the leather about twice a year.

      Great Product

      Bought these for my little adults. I have a pair of Hestra gloves and love them...great construction and keeps little hands WARM and DRY!

      Hestra, how can you go wrong?

      Best Gloves Available

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      One of the best gloves available - well made, warm, and durable. They're expensive but worth it. We have not had issues with them getting wet and have used them for all day/weekend ski trips. We own several pairs that are handed down through our 4 children. Highly recommended.

      I purchased the mittens for the smaller kids, envisioning their little fingers getting cold, while our older children have the Hestra Heli Ski Junior GLOVES. I’ve noticed on occasion they get frustrated with the lack of fingers, I would recommend going with the gloves. They’re both so well made, their hands will be equally warm.

      These Mitts Rock

      Short Story: crazy warm, high quality, awesome features, cool colors, you won't regret it

      Details: Bought these in pink for my 8 yr old last season & she loves them. To be honest, I'm totally jealous ... I need my own pair ... soon. She loves that the insides are insanely comfy & warm. I love the carabiner clip, wrist leashes, gauntlets & top notch construction. Seriously, it's awesome to NOT have to hold her mitts on the lift while we adjust gear, & the gauntlets make it easy to keep out the snow. No more taking off my gloves in the freezing cold to pull her jacket sleeves over her gloves every 15 minutes. (frankly, that always bothered me way more than her, but at least I'm not doing it now)

      As for style, she's cautious about looking TOO girly & loves these bc they're cute but rugged looking. I've compared them to the adult Heli's in store & they're obviously the same top quality. These things rock. After 1 season, they barely show any wear. If you're skiing in the rain, maybe the goat leather isn't the most waterproof protection on the market, but I rarely ski in the rain & especially not w the kid. They've been rock solid & plenty waterproof when we've been in wet snow/spring conditions & dried pretty quickly. These aren't made for snowball fights in wet snow, they're made to keep you warm in nasty alpine conditions. Why would you send the kids outside to play in mitts anyway? Get a cheap pair of synthetic waterproof gloves for that, then pack them in your gear bag as back-up. Buy these mitts so your kids' cold hands don't ruin your (& their) expensive ski trip. Plus, I bought them a little big, so I expect a couple more seasons & (since they're the gold standard) I bet I can then sell them for $50 to put towards a new pair. In the long run, I doubt they'll actually cost much more than the mediocre, practically disposable gloves I used to buy.

      Get these & never worry about their hands again. Yes, they're expensive, but I never have to go in early bc my kid's hands are cold ... so I've got that going for me ... which is nice.

      (does she look excited to be at the Okemo summit for the 1st time??)

      These Mitts Rock

      Kiddo's favorite pow mitt.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Having a pow-hungry 9 y/o who constantly pesters us to charge bigger lines and can't get A/T bindings fast enough... these gloves satisfy her needs day in and out. Even when it's below zero and the fresh is chin deep... her hands stay dry-n-toasty. Worth the cash!

      not great for kids who get wet

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are great for adults or older kids, but my 8 year old twin boys like to play in the snow and they get wet. I am switching them to all leather so we don't have to do as much drying time!

      An awesome mitten

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

      This is the type of glove that has all the adult features but made for kids. Its so great, its warm, waterproof and functional. It will keep my kids playing outdoors for longer. Not some shitty kids mitten that gets wet and does not work well, its the bomb. And if it keeps them happier in the outdoors I am happier.

      Does anyone know whether the kids version (Item # HES0158) of these mittens is of the same quality as the women's mittens (Item # HES0091)? Sometimes kids' versions of items have less insulation/are of lesser quality than the adult version...Thank you!

      I don't have my own pair (yet), but my daughter's new pair seem to be the same quality as the adult versions I tried in store. I will be posting a review after we finally get some snow, but so far I'm totally satisfied.

      Question on sizing... Should you size up...

      Question on sizing...

      Should you size up on these kids Hestra mitts to allow for growth in next 1-2 seasons, or just buy according to your child's current size?





      Best Answer

      As a parent I would suggest sizing up, if the next size is not too big of a leap, to allow for growth over a season or two. In the case of the Hestra Heli Ski Junior Mitten this is pretty easy to do because the drawcord gauntlet and wrist cinch strap will keep the mitten comfortably in place even if it is on the large side right now.
