Hestra Fall Line Glove

The durable Hestra Fall Line gloves add warmth without bulk.

Hands rarely get enough love on the mountain, but the Hestra Fall Line Glove will cradle your mitts in water-repellent, impregnated aniline cowhide and a soft polyester lining, making them feel like a punishing day on the hill is actually a relaxing beach vacation. The Fall Line uses low-profile synthetic fiberfill insulation to keep your paws warm without sacrificing the dexterity provided by the supple leather exterior. Add in comfortable external seams and a neoprene cuff with hook-and-loop closure, and the Fall Line is the perfect combination of warmth, dexterity, durability, and comfort for a day (or season) of tearing up the mountain.

These gloves are extremely comfortable, perform well, and as a bonus, are very good looking. They offer great dexterity and keep my hands warm no matter the conditions. I highly recommend these.

Hestra the name to trust in gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Is there even another option when buying ski gloves. nothing beats the dexterity and fit of Hestra.

Heaven for your hands!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What can I say about these gloves that hasn't already been said? Coming from someone who always has cold fingers, but hates not having good dexterity, these gloves are perfect. These lasted many a seasons in Jackson where the temperatures reach well below freezing, keeping my hands warm and comfy. Do yourself a favor and grab a pair, you won't regret it!

The Ferrari of ski gloves.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are awesome and silky smooth on the hand. Warm in almost any temp but when it dips below 0 tho I switch to mittens but these run great everywhere else.

Super warm. Look great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are really warm and comfortable to wear in colder weather. Often my hands are too warm if the sun is out. They have held up well for the one season I have on them. They tend to soak up water on slushy days.

These gloves are great for cold weather when everything is still frozen. I do not recommend for warmer spring days.

Unanswered Question

I bought a size 8 and it is snug. It feels like maybe just a hair too tight. Will these stretch out a bit over time or should I go for the next size up?

great glove!

    this glove is a low profile glove it is very comfortable,
    this glove allows my hands to breathe but still stays warm.
    i like how they have just the little hestra emblem not too loud...

    Hestra Rules

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

    I own a pair of these myself and liked them so much I bought them for my dad as a gift. I also own a pair of Windstedt Pro there are my go to on warmer days. These do great in colder conditions. While they aren't cheap, they're quality gloves. Hestra makes the best gloves in the industry as far as I'm concerned. Don't forget to pick up a bottle of Nikwax to help protect and maintain their water repellence!

    Love these gloves

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After reading largely positive reviews, with a couple reviews concerned about fit and warmth--I decided to give them a go. I bought these about a month ago and have skied with them 3 weekends in the Adirondacks: upper 20s/lower 30s--perfect; lower/mid 20s--perfect; single digits with gusting winds on the lift--maybe a little cold after 3 hours of skiing, no problems in the afternoon temps in upper teens/lower 20s; and finally yesterday near 0 degrees in the morning, no winds--my fingers were toasty all day.
    When I bought these gloves I also bought Nikwax Weatherproofing for Leather. I rubbed this in good--one liberal coat, let it rest/sink in, then wiped/buffed off excess. A week later I used the included Hestra Balm--heating gloves in the oven for 5 minutes at around 150, rubbing the balm in, then putting back in the oven for another 5 minutes, let it rest, wipe/buff off excess. Gloves definitely shed snow/moisture--not a problem. Color definitely changes/darkens with waterproofing btw, but i love the deep brown color it has become. Several have commented on how nice they look. I measure as size 9, and the size 9 fit as well as any pair of gloves have ever fit my hands. I have another pair of Hestras in size 9, and very similar fit.

    Love these gloves

    Glad those worked out for you, Hugh!

    Not as warm as I thought

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

    Used this glove skiing in 30-40 degree F weather and it was fine. Once it got below that in the teens my fingers got pretty cold especially on the lift. I even bought some glove liners and they were still cold. Maybe it's just me, but it wasn't as warm as I had hoped for.

    Unfortunately since I can't exchange them for something like the Hestra 3 finger I'm might see if I can sell them.

    On the bright side, they are nice because they don't add much bulk and have a decent amount of dexterity. I wouldn't consider them on a day when it is very cold.

    Amazing Glove

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I absolutely love these gloves! They keep your hands warm and dry, what else could you ask for. I would defiantly recommend these!

    Best I've Had

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've skied in these gloves multiple times now. Today was a foot-and-a-half day with a -20 degrees fahrenheit wind chill, but my fingers were perfectly warm. I love the softness and malleability of the leather, and would really recommend these gloves

    Unanswered Question

    How do the sizes work? What do the numbers equivilate out to?

    Unanswered Question

    Does anyone know how the warmth of these compares to the Vertical Cut Freeride?

    Has anyone from the Pacific Northwest/Cascades used these? I am considering for days when it isn't raining/snowing out...but let's face it, nothing stays dry around here and I am hesitant to go with a glove that isn't completely waterproof. Any thoughts?



    hey tracy. i recently bought these gloves when i was in whistler. i didn't need a pair because i have some rad mitts but they looked great and the sales person said they were super warm. i'm a pretty "warm-blooded" guy and don't get cold easy. I have to say, these gloves are NOT warm. The conditions I were in I would say was about -10 (celcius) or so, so not the coldest. They were OK while riding but I think the problem is that they aren't windproof. I'm sure they'll be fine in the spring but I would say they are by no means warm.

    Awesome!

      Best gloves i've ever had. Use them for skiing and snowblowing. Glove function great and are ver warm!

      Is the wax supplied to be applied before first use? Or is it for after several wears?



      Thanks

      Apply before first use to maximize waterproofing capabilities. Apply by heating the glove with a blow dryer first, then apply wax generously, and then heat again to allow wax to seep into the leather. Let dry overnight. I've done this with mine and they're super waterproof. Even in the slop at Park City a few weeks ago when they were experiencing 45-50 degree temps and wet snow. By the way, I found these gloves to be extremely warm.

      10 out of 10 of my Fingers Agree

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My fingers all agree these are wonderful gloves. I wear the tan ones that are, yes, actually a tan color and not yellow. I applied the standard wax conditioner to them, and they darkened just a shade--more importantly, the conditioner made them super soft and flexible. I've worn them for a week of skiing and I have no complaints. The coldest temp I've worn them in has been 15 deg F., and they were toasty warm. I look forward to seeing how they hold up to the colder temps of mid-winter. Love the gloves! Supple, yet the leather looks like it'll hold up well for many seasons.
