Garrettwrote a review of Hestra Fall Line Glove on January 23, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ive worn these gloves for about 3 years and am finally retiring them.
- Great fit/comfort,
- Bombproof leather
- Low profile, easy to use cuffs and wrist straps
- The mini beiner and loops make it easy to clip to the pants.
- The insulation material immediately starts to compress, losing a lot of the insulation (especially the finger tips). Understandably, its not a super cold weather glove but I expected the insulation to last a bit longer. I definitely recommend buying on the large side in order to prevent the compression.
- The waterproofing started to fade after a few uses. The wax worked at first but by the end of the second season, I had to reapply every powder day to prevent the leather from soaking. They rarely soak through to make my hands wet, but the soaked leather would often freeze, making the palm slick and very hard to hold ski poles.
