Not Waterproof at All
2 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently purchased these gloves and out of the box they feel comfortable. Upon first and second use skiing in normal snow conditions they were drenched and soaking up water. They were not waterproof at all and the palms are waterstained now. I put in an email to Hestra customer service and they proceeded to tell me how sometimes snow is wet and recommended other brands of leather waterproofing balms. I would be fine with this if it was obvious and blatant that these SKI gloves were not waterproof upfront. Then I would have treated them beforehand. Gloves seemed fairly warm, got cold at times in 10-15 degree weather, but that could have been because they were filling up with snow and water.....
