Christina F.wrote a review of Hestra Heli 3-Finger Glove - Women's on February 9, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've had mine for about 4-5 years. I love the functionality of the index finger. The handcuffs and cuff lock out pretty much all powder. Nothing gets through the cuffs once they are cinched! Well, not through the cuffs, that is. However....these are really NOT waterproof. I have treated them with the Hestra wax (which, by the way, will turn your pretty white leather palm yellowish/gray) to make them more waterproof. I also tried using extra Scotch Guard on the fabric portions. I still get complete soaking of my gloves on wet snow days. I did switch out my original liners for the 3 finger ones, which does keep my fingers warmer. (I have Raynaud's syndrome, so always have cold hands unless it's a spring skiing day.) I wish they made the Goretex version in the women's sizing an colors. I thought these would be my only gloves I'd keep for years. But after my most recent trip to Tahoe (it was kind of slushing out -- really wet heavy snow was falling and intermittently rain), they were pretty useless. They work great on drier days though. Guess I'm going to have to get the men's Goretex version...
