        Overall

        i love my hestras and will probably stick with them for a few years. tough, warm, good lookin. the only downside is the price. but what do you expect from one of the best glove brands on the market

        Performance

        lets go over the name again, "Hestra". nuff said. but i'll say more anyways.  my hands are ALWAYS cold. it could be 35-40 and my gay ass hands would be cold.  for this reason, i splurged on some Hestras.  i was disappointed to find that my hands were still cold even with $100 gloves. i have come to the conclusion that it is my hands tho.  i've pretty much heard from everyone that Hestra makes the best gloves out there.  they are also advertised to be very waterproof. this is true, but you may feel some leakage after a few uses. just make sure you use the supplied waterproofing grease stuff.

        Design

        good design, very comfortable. the fleecy liner on the inside is soft as a baby's bottom. the leather is soft too and the sleeve is pretty long to keep the snow out whether you do jacket under or over the glove  

        Value

        if you really need to, go for em. although i said my hands were still cold, these have kept them the warmest of any gloves i have had. held up really well from tough use in all conditions

        Fit

        i feel like the fit is a bit small. i usually wear a small, so when i ordered i bought a size 7 which backcountry.com said is the equivalent to a mens small.  the gloves were a bit small as my fingers brushed up against the fingertips. i would probably go one size up if i bought from hestra again (which i would)  

        Durability

        very durable. i've got a full season of use with them and still no rips, tears, holes, nothing. the only thing i can say is that the white leather has turned a light brown. this is 100% understandable and not the greatest decision on my part to go with the white leather. the leather is tough as nails, i shot it with my .22 and the bullet cracked.
