Hestra makes somewhere in the ballpark of 400 different styles of gloves, and this is the one that they make for ski pros. It could be the best ski glove you can find. The durability and versatility they offer is hard to match. If you expect to find yourself at the resort every morning, stamping your ski boots and anxiously squinting at the predawn horizon, you can take comfort in the fact that your hands aren’t cold.

 

The first Hestra gloves were built for lumberjacks using rivet-reinforced leather. In their  “Heli” professional-grade model, they’ve kept the leather and added the better part of a century’s worth of ski industry experience. Hestra has a reputation for quality winter gloves, and though some may groan about the price and the “hype”, my hands have never gotten cold in mine. 

Heli series products are available as gloves, mittens, and three finger “gloves”. All are compatible with a series of interchangeable liners. The mittens are definitely the warmest by design, but all are insulated with Hestra house “G-Loft” polyester fill with a breathable fabric and goat leather shell. The gauntlet cuff makes them pow-proof, and the cinching “snowlock” keeps out the sluff. They’re also ergonomically designed, with a velcro strap and curved hand shape.
