If I'm not touring in British Columbia, then you can find me creeking in West Virginia or Hiking in Maine

Eric Henrickson's Bio

I'm a native Mainer who migrated to WV for education and have had the privilege of skiing in British Columbia for more than a decade now. If it involves being outside and coming home tired, I'm all over it. There is nothing more rewarding than being in a place that makes you feel small.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The bindings themselves are great, minus the fact that they are being recalled by G3. There is another issue, which is the heel screws. The screws are larger than the toe unit screws and not tapered. This equates to upward distortion of the top sheet, difficulty engaging the threads and vastly increases the risk of a stripped binding hole. I have mounted many sets of bindings and never before had a binding screw hole stripped. This happened twice in two mounts despite approximately 100 pounds of down force to persuade the threads to engage and follow themselves. I am not sure what made G3 believe that they should have two different screw designs for one binding, and why they chose to deviate from the industry norm, but it was not well thought out.

The quality of the construction of these mitts is excellent, The design is lacking

As a trigger finger mitt configuration, Hestra went and designed a five fingered liner, which greatly decreases the warmth of the mitten.

The leather palm is unlined, and therefore NOT WATERPROOF.

As great as the three fingered (trigger finger) configuration is for warmth and dexterity, Hestra has overlooked these two design flaws, rendering their product less than adequate.

After owning a Marmot trigger finger Mitten from 12 years ago, I was hopeful to recapture the warmth and utility of this genre of glove which is sorely missing from the market.

The gloves are indeed warm. The quality is great. The fit is true to size.

The big drawback is that, contrary to the features listed, the liner is not removable. Thus it loses it's utility in warmer conditions or during periods of greater exertion.

I applaud Marmot for reintroducing the trigger finger mitten, I hope they will convert to a removable liner.
