Hestra Fall Line 3-Finger Glove

Ski in supple luxury.

Slip on the Hestra Fall Line 3-Finger Glove before etching through bottomless powder and silky-smooth bumps. This freeride glove is crafted of supple impregnated aniline cowhide leather for superb pole grip and a luxurious feel. The unique design allows at least three of your fingers to huddle together for warmth, while fiberfill insulation keeps all your digits wrapped in a cozy cocoon when skiing in finger-numbing temps. Dyed in a variety of earth tones, this glove is one of Hestra's most subdued and elegant offerings, and it reflects the increasing popularity of more classic, neutral-colored outerwear on the slopes.

Hestra

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My bf has been a fan of Hestra for some time, and when one of his gloves was lost on a pow day last year, had to get a replacement pair because they're just that good.
They're super durable, and keep your range of movement so long as you size them right. So far they've been pretty warm too, especially paired with a light liner on the frigid days. I definitely recommend using the leather waterproofing stuff that's included- it works, and helps to boost the longevity of the glove overall.

Perfect alpine gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had a pair of old Goretex gloves but my hands kept getting cold on the mountain. Bought these and have never had that issue. Perfect fit, comfortable, fully function of a glove with the comfort of a mitten. Absolutely love them.

Tried others keep coming back

    So dexterous, I've recently sized down a bit as these tend to break in after a couple days. Always use snoseal to waterproof!

    the best

      These gloves get the job done in cold conditions on the slopes. Really my go to glove. When its cold out I know I can count on these gloves to keep my hands warm. Great quality on these gloves.

      Unanswered Question

      Does the Fall Line model come with the Hestra handcuff wrist straps?

      Withstood Whistler in January!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Not sure what the temperature rating is for this glove/mitt, but it's super warm! I got these to replace my BD gloves (which I love but have an awkward fit) and I LOVE these. They are really warm, like the title suggests, it withstood a ski trip up in Canada in January. I love the 3finger glove concept because it allows me the freedom to mess with my zippers, coat cuffs, ski boots, and ear phones when i'm out on the slopes. These function easy enough to where I don't have to take my gloves off and fidget, get cold, and then put my gloves back on.
      These gloves (as well as all Hestra gloves) come with waterproofing oil that you definitely need to rub thoroughly on the gloves before you use them! It will prolong the life of the glove and prevent large pores and dry cracking in the leather. It also helps to get the gloves toasty warm before applying the balm. When the glove is warm it will mold to your hands right when you rub the balm on and they'll be much more comfortable when you first take them out!
      These are great quality and really comfy, and warm! Use them in the dead of winter, they will be way too warm as a spring glove. The low profile cuff is a nice plus as well!

      I know it's a bit hard/weird to measure your hands... if you're having trouble with the size chart and getting your measurements feel free to connect with me on chat and I can help you out based on your information. I have fairly small hands and got a size 7 which fits me perfectly.

      Want to have warm hands?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These gloves are no joke, The quality alone is appealing, treat them well and break them in and you wont want to go back, for the price these are exceptionally warm, stylish, the trigger finger is clutch. The potential for warmth with the 3-finger option is real....great ski mitt.

      Sick Glove that Screams Quality

        In order to really understand why Hestra Fall Line 3 Finger Gloves are so expensive and why Hestra is one of the leading Glove companies on the Market one only needs to try these on. I promise that you will not be disappointed. These gloves are extremely comfortable and the "Trigger Finger" makes tasks easier to accomplish without taking your gloves off (i.e. zipping up pockets and zippers). The Liners in these gloves are super soft and are even made to be removable and replaceable when the liners wear out. Hestra as a brand that really concentrates on the little details in these gloves and do not skimp on the quality of craftsmanship. All Gloves are produced and manufactured in Hestra Sweden, each one being hand stitched and assembled. Sure they are expensive, but do you want a pair of north face gloves that last you one or two seasons or a glove that can last you a decade.

        I personally think these gloves are plenty warm for skiing/riding at the resort or for any winter outdoor activity, however if you always find yourself having cold hands or bad circulation I would recommend checking out the Hestra Heli model in their winter glove line.

        Most Hestra gloves are made in China. My fall line 3 finger gloves say "made in China"

        Trigger Finger!

          Love these gloves, second pair. Sized down 1 more size as they tend to stretch a little after wearing. I seal these with sno-seal, bake them in the oven. Totally waterproof and dexterous!

          Toasty Warm

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I wear these for cold weather and the three fingers allows for excellent warmth and dexterity. I previously had a pair of Hestras in size 9 but ended up needing a size 10 in these. Well crafted and good looking as you would expect from Hestra.

          Trigger Finger Baby

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Picked up a pair of these as my mid/late season mitten for Utah. I have a pair of the Hestra Heli Trigger Finger GTX gloves that i wear through the winter and then like to break out the stylish leather gloves once the temps are steadily into the 20's and up.

          Make no mistake they are still a super warm mitten, i just like the low profile style for riding in the spring and the under the cuff style. The leather work is pretty phenomenal on these bad boys and the cuff grips tighten down real nice

          Great Leather Work

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I really love the leather work on this three finger. It is made of a really beautiful leather. I thought that they were a little cold so I would recommend getting a really lightweight merino liner to go with it.
          Hestra really knows how to make gloves, these are by far the comfiest mitt I've owned. The fit great when sizing off of the Hestra size chart. I'm really excited to use this as a spring glove and touring. The three finger design is great for dexterity.
          I'd recommend these to people who like mitts but have having oven mitts on their hands when shredding.

          Hestra killing it

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          When searching for a glove i have grown to love the 3 finger set up. It is the perfect combo between warmth of mitts, and functionality of gloves. The quality of my gloves is unmatched from any company i have worn. The inside has an fiberfill insulation that is super warm, and stays ultra warm. The cowhide provides a waterproof exterior that when properly conditioned should last for years. Please reach out to me directly if you ever need an affirmation of your decision to get these gloves.

          Warm, AWFUL QUALITY/CUSTOMER SERVICE

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Bought these last season in the hopes California would get some snow. We got an early (only) season dump in December '14 and I got to put these to use. It was a typical Sierra bluebird day so temps were relatively high.. mid-20's. The gloves kept my fingers warm and dry and were comfy, so no complaints there.

          Unfortunately, within one day of riding the gloves were separating at the seams, first one glove now both gloves. The seams are separating at both the index and mitten portion exposing the interior liner, which isn't waterproof nor warm when it gets snowy. I've sent countless email and warranty requests to Hestra and haven't heard a peep. Pretty lame for a company which appears to have so many happy customers and claims their gloves have a lifetime warranty.

          If the gloves didn't separate at the seams this would be a 4-5 star review. However, workmanship and durability are the reason I bought these gloves and they have absolutely failed me (within the first two days of wearing them!). I plan to keep trying to contact Hestra and see if they will make good on their "lifetime warranty"

          Potential buyers beware. Maybe I just got a bad batch but after 4 emails, multiple phone calls and no response, I have lost faith in this company.

          apart from the gloves being junk, why did you have to go through HESTRA and not BACKCOUNTRY.COM?

          *FACE PALM*

          Sending BC customer service a note now...

          As far as Hestra goes, I'm going to chalk this up to the Hestra USA staff probably being a one man (woman) show or at least minimally staffed. We'll see where this ends up, I'll update my review once the warranty claim is finalized.

          Very sorry to read that you had such a difficult time with Customer Service in resolving your issue ApacheCheef. Looking at the date of your post I see it was right during the year-end holidays, a time when normal business hours for our small staff seem to fluctuate. We were also suddenly short staffed due to unexpected personal reasons. Nonetheless Hestra prides itself on two things: 1) Product Quality and 2) Customer Service. If your issue has still yet to be resolved to your full satisfaction please feel free to contact me directly. Marc C National Sales Manager Hestra USA 720-420-1556

          Warm, warm, warm!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          These gloves are great. Half mitten and half glove, what more could you ask for? The separation of your index figure provides dexterity, which on -6 degree-days comes in handy (punny ha) when you don’t want to take your gloves off. I highly recommend them. The leather is not only super soft but well-made and durable. Inside of the mitten there is soft fleece that divides your fingers. Soft and comfortable period.

          Believe the Hype!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          If you're not drinking the Hestra Kool-Aid, you should be. After years of wearing other gloves I finally bit the bullet and picked up a pair of Fall Line 3 Fingers. They are incredibly well made, and the leather is super soft. The inside of the glove is unbelievably comfortable and warm at the same time. It's been exceptionally cold for the last couple weeks here in Utah, and these have kept my hands warm down to single digit temps. Just be sure to treat these with Hestra's leather balm or pick up some Sno-Seal. You'll want to treat them right when you get them periodically throughout the season.

          Hestras are the BEST!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          These gloves are sick! Not only are they lobster style giving you the best of both worlds but they are also all leather which holds up really well against wear and also keeps them finger tips warm. I only ride with Hestras now since they keep my hands so warm. Cant emphasize it enough. Hestras are the best! Previous pair were the Hestra Henrik Windstedt Pro Mitten which are even warmer than these. They just lack the free finger which I like. Still gonna use those when its super cold though!

          Any idea when the Cork/Forest will be restocked in other sizes?

          Unfortunately we do not have any additional sizes or colors on order from Hestra. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions or to discuss other 3-finger glove options.

          Good warmth!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          My wife bought me these gloves for my birthday and I have to say they are pretty awesome! She got me the backcountry exclusive tan and green color and they are super sharp. We ride in central Oregon where it's wet windy and downright gnarly and these gloves keep my hands warm and dry. I bought extra Hestra sealant and treat them frequently because of the conditions I ride and they are holding up well. Highly recommended gloves. The only reason I'm leaving four stars instead of five is they require more care than a pair of cheap nylon gloves but I'm hoping to get use out of them for several seasons.
