Best All-Around Glove
Hestra Fall Line Leather

Hestra Fall Line products come from the freeride world, and emphasize dexterity and panache over the bombshelter approach the Heli series applies. Despite this, they’re still warm enough to be as well-regarded by ski professionals as other Hestra products.  The beautifully stitched external seams and boisterous color selection will make you look so good, you’ll probably ski better. 

Aside from style points, the Fall Line run of products are a bit like the midsize SUV of Hestra gloves. They’re solid enough to feel safe, but are much more nimble and practical than the full size Heli gauntlet. They’re made of waterproofed cow leather, and filled with pliable foam insulation warm enough for professional use. The biggest draw to these is the dexterity the external seams provide: grab your pole tighter, buckle a chinstrap, even tie a knot without taking off your gloves. All products have neoprene undercuff that slides under your jacket sleeve, allowing for even more movement.

All told, Fall Line gloves and mittens are perfect for people who use their hands a lot and are tired of cold hands from taking off their gloves. Dig a pit, zip up your kid’s coat, point out the easiest way down all without the inconvenience of cold hands.
