Hestra Gloves Too Small, Recommendations?
Bought the Hestra three-finger Seth's from Colorado Freeskier on sale, knowing they were a little small. I have contacted Hestra and an exchange would cost me full price, not down.
Would NS recommend trying to find someone to trade with? or is there any way to stretch these with a warm soak, ect? Maybe these stretch enough just by wearing them?
I currently have an 8, 9 felt perfect.
Well I would try to sell or trade them first. If no luck then try to stretch them. I doubt they stretch from normal wear
It is sewn real tight in the palms and the leather isn't meant to really change shape. If you were to stretch them, a warm soak of them would do well
stretching would probably damage the leather, and make them not as waterproof/more prone to tears. for gloves like that, i would recommend trying to sell return them/and getting a new pair. even if you lose a few bucks doing it, thats better than damaging really expensive gloves
