Hestra

Hestra Logo
From its beginnings in the Swedish province of Småland, Hestra® has always been driven towards quality. For close to 80 years its spirit and focus have never left those timber forests. Founded in 1936 by Martin Magnusson out of his farmhouse, the business began providing for local lumberjacks in need of durable, water-resistant gloves. In 1937, a ski slope was built nearby drawing attention from locals. As alpine sports grew in popularity, Magnusson saw a new market for his first-rate gloves, and took to making performance products with a user-driven design.
Still run by third and fourth generation Magnussons, the family maintains a close eye on quality to ensure only the best products go out the door. All gloves are manufactured in Hestra factories and the company personally buys all leather, fabric, wool, and other materials. With an artisan focus on finding the balance between durability, moisture resistance, and flexibility, several of their models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
As one of the leading international glove brands in skiing, outdoor recreation, and leisure, Hestra’s origins in work gloves still shines through in all of their products today. From mittens to alpine gloves and liners, you can be secure in the fact that these items can take a beating for seasons to come.

These are a high quality product. Insanely soft, warm, and I know they will last for years, even a lifetime. Hoping they never wear out but if I ever need a pair of leather gloves in the future, Hestra will be the company I go to.

The wool is very nice and the deerskin is very soft. They run a little large if you are a woman. They are not that warm though. Under 40 degrees my hands got cold.

A solid pair of Hestra's but as a normal Hestra size 9, these were too tight. I would recommend getting one size up from your normal Hestra size. I know they're leather and they will break in over time but these were for sure sized a bit too small. As far as comfort, I've owned 4 different pairs of Hestra's in the last decade and these seemed to be just as comfortable as any others. Style-wise when worn, there's a lot of padding on the top of the hand so it makes your hands look a little funny when wearing the gloves, almost like your hands are inflated or swollen on top. You were not able to tell this from the picture, only once they're actually worn. I would still recommend these gloves but keep in mind they run a little small compared to most Hestra's and they are not meant for very cold temps or for very wet conditions. The dexterity was great.

Nothing will get my 20-month old to like mittens, but at least I love these. They are warm, easy to get on, and baby can't tear them off! Now she's grumpy and warm instead of grumpy and cold. Win!

They are certainly not making gloves to fit humans these days!! I am a woman who can usually and comfortably wear a Mens Small. The fingers in these are about 1/2-1 inch too short and the lining is so thick in finger area you can't bend your hand without discomfort!! Style is nice and leather is nice - what a shame they can't be worn!!

These gloves are amazing. Hestra's for adults are great, and I was happy to see the same quality of construction and functionality in their kids gloves. I bought these for my 2 year old and think he will get a few years of use out of them. They allow for more movement than other gloves and the zipper makes them easy to get on.

A great pair of gloves. Leather is high quality, the inside is oh-so-soft, and the ribbed cuff makes a great finishing touch. Hoping these last many many years.

The three finger design felt cumbersome and somewhat restricting when clenching a fist. I was worried they may tire my hands when holding ski poles. I have exchanged for the mitten version- as the leather is very soft and pliable. FYI I am female- may be more suited to fit the male hand.

I've been skiing 30+ years. I ski in all conditions, like a full day, so appreciate functional, effective, technical gear. Long ago, I switched from leather to waterproof fabric gloves, had the first (then very well-made) model of Seirus gloves which had an inner plastic waterproofing, a removable liner with inner sub-zero fleece microfiber flocking, and double stitching throughout...unlike what is available now from that company today. I was hesitant to buy these leather Hestra gloves, as they don't have a removable fitted liner, or many zippered areas for heat packs in extreme sub-zero cold. But you won't need them! These are very well-made, WARM, and sleek in a classic way, the elastic fitted cuff will fit smoothly under your jacket, easy to remove and put back on. I bought a pair 2 years ago, and appreciate the improvement of a hook attachment. Other gloves on the market offer ability to use a touchscreen without removing them. This would be a terrific improvement, but in any case, they are well-made, of excellent quality, warm, sleek, functional!

These gloves are extremely comfortable and warm. The Hestra sizing scheme is spot on. I wear XL gloves/mitts and purchased size 11. They might be a tad large, but only a tad. Much better than a tad too small. The wrist band is very convenient. I use these for snowmobiling, as well, and have no warmth issues. Removable liners is huge. These are easy to remove after skiing and placed on a dryer. Owners should frequently treat the leather, however. I do this almost after every use. I dropped one star on "Overall," due to price. $140 is pretty stiff for a pair of gloves. A little rich for my blood, but I am very pleased with style and performance.

These are the best ski gloves I have ever owned (been skiing 20+ years). They are extremely warm, and the leather is both soft & durable. The wrist straps are clutch - my first gloves with these, and they are extremely convenient.

These are perfect! Great fit for little hands. Easy on/off side zipper. Extra long for added protection from the elements. I went through 5 other gloves/mittens before finding these. All the other ones were huge for little hands. These are a great find!!!!

The gloves fit well, have good features, should be very durable. I have cold hands, and agree that at or below freezing - wish the fingers were warmer. Hard to find really warm gloves that are dextrous, have good grip, etc.
