This is just an amzing glove with tons of great features and tech to keep your hands warm, dry, and looking good on the mountain from first chair to last.
These gloves are amazing. They keep my hands super warm and dry, and they look sweet too. They have never gotten wet, and water slides right off thanks to the gore-tex insert. These are amazing gloves, I think that they will last me for years.
The 3-finger design is so sick. I've always worn mitts, and was thinking about getting gloves this season, but worried about my hands getting cold. These are perfect. They fit amazing and you can do stuff that you wouldnt be able to do with a mitt. Also, the hestra handcuffs work amazing so that you can take your gloves off for gear adjustments or phone calls and still have them tightly secured to your hands.
It is a great value for the money. Even though they cost 150, they will last me 3 or 4 times as long as other gloves that might be 80 or so that I would have to continue to replace. The price is right for teh durability, features, design, and tech that comes with this glove.
The fit is great. i got a size 8, my hands were halfway between a 7 and 8. obviously, if you want to have more dexterity, get the smaller size so that it fits tighter. That said, my hands get cold, even if its 40 outside. I hate my hands. so i got the slightly larger version, the 8, and I love it. Even tho my hands get cold putting on all my gear, I put them back into the gloves and they warm up real fast. hestra measures their gloves by how long your hands are from the tip of your middle finger to the base of your palm. However many inches it is, that is the size your would wear. For tighter-fitting hestras like seths or vertical cuts, go one size down from what you measured your hands as, but for heli models, stay the same size.
This glove is super durable. I got it stuck in my binding the other day, couldnt pull it out, but when i did, there wan't even a crease in the leather. make sure to treat the leather with hestra leather care so that it is still supple and waterproof for years after you have bought the glove. I have a felling this glove will last for five or more years.
