Like wearing oven mitts, not warm enough

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

First I will say I have hands that seem to defy almost every glove I've tried, so understand I'm likely a fringe case, but unfortunately these Hestra's were not even close to the solution. Was promised by a Backcountry rep that these would do the trick, but sadly even on a 25 degree day my hands were still cold.
The gloves seem well made, and likely would work for most people, but not me.
Also, they are super wide. I ordered the 10, and the length is right, but the amount of space on the width inside is huge! Feels like wearing a pair of oven mitts. Dexterity is really poor with these.
Returning, sadly... another failed attempt to find a glove (mitt) that will work for me and my chilly digits.

Warmest gloves I've ever worn

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was looking for a warm pair of gloves and these were recommended to me by everyone I asked, and I have not been let done. From storm days at Alta (which hover in the single digits) to -21 days in Montana, they have never failed me. I love the removable liner, that helps me regulate my temp as well as dry the gloves faster. Additionally, the leather is super durable and I know I will have these gloves for years to come. If you have worn Hestras before, I recommend sizing down one size for the Heli Pro!!

Hestra is the way to go

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ive tried a variety of ski gloves and these have been my favorite by far. Hestra makes an awesome glove that is both comfortable and extremely durable. They have yet to let my hands get cold and I definitely recommend them to anyone thinking about taking the Hestra dive!

Comfortable!

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

I gave these to my husband as a gift and here is what he has to say!

I initially tried these mittens on in the store and loved how soft and comfortable they feel. So far I’ve used them outside in temps around 20F. My hands were just starting to feel a little cold after about 30 minutes so if you are going to be outside for prolonged periods of time without being active, it probably makes sense to step up to something a little thicker/warmer.

However, I’m using this primarily for skiing and for that they work well and are a good balance between bulk and warmth. Overall, for skiing or other activities that keep you moving I think would be a great choice. For extremely cold temps or long periods of inactivity, I would step up to something a little warmer.

Happy Happy!

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

I gave these as a gift, their feedback has been awesome and that they love them. I tried them on, I am not really a mitten fan, I thought there was a lot of extra room in the glove. I tried them on with a glove liner and felt much more comfortable. I may be used to fingers I guess. All in all looked, felt like some kickass gloves.

Hestra is the Answer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Hestra has been making gloves for a very long time and definitely know what they are doing. These are the warmest mittens I've ever worn, and everything from the color to the straps and materials look very classy. I never had any issue with snow getting inside them, but the best part was knowing that my hands would be nice and toasty the whole day.

Stoked for the ski season

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

Finally made the jump to hestra heli mittens for this season and excited to try them out. I am 6' and about 160 pounds and I got the size 10. They fit perfectly.

Done and Done!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They worked perfectly. Warm, but not too warm. Great fit. Rugged design held up really well. They also were super easy to get on and off in all sorts of challenging situations. The clip that it comes with is also pretty hardy and did the job. Basically, look no further. This will get the job done.

Great mits!

    Bought these by following a Gearhead recommendation posted on the site, and I was not disappointed. They are super warm and comfortable. I've always gone with finger gloves, and feel that these mits will make it easy to transition.

    best $ i ever did spend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    i love being outside but i've got those kind of cold hands that make babies cry. i can stay outside all day in negative temps with these bad boys.

    Still Amazing After 1 season

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ski about 40 days a year - I wore these for a good amount of the time. With the exception of warmer spring days. My hands are never cold with these - they've held up really well - I've conditioned them 3 times this year but honestly, my hands have never gotten wet.

    Still Amazing After 1 season

    Heli-Va Mitten!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just what you would hope for: Super warm, great protection from the elements, sturdy, well-made. Awesome!

    All the Warmth

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

    I gave these to my husband for Christmas. He's had around three months to truly use them in all conditions (Night skiing, single digit temps during the day, snow days, and also blue bird days). All of which the gloves were great. They are a massive step up from his practically gardening gloves he was skiing with. Since he's gotten these, he says that he has overall more warmth than he did before, not just warmth in his hands. The cuff also fits nicely over his shell which allows for easy on and off access. Solid purchase.

    So warm and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought a pair of regular five-finger gloves to use in Breck. Day two into my trip, when it was single digit temps and dumping snow, I had to replace the five-finger gloves because my fingers were cold STIFF. I had no choice but to get new gloves and these jumped off the rack at me. After wearing them in rather cold conditions, I am very impressed. So warm and comfortable. I love that the straps under your palm combined with the wrist seal act as a two-tiered defense from the snow even when you take an epic spill. Would recommend to others.

    Warm and dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these for my boyfriend for skiing, and he has raved about them every time he's worn them. He loves that the outer and inner layers separate so easily, and that they go back together without a hitch. They keep his hands toasty warm and dry!

    hands got COLD

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

    I have been using mittens for years but have never bought expensive ones. I found these to be fine the first 2 hours, but the 3rd and especially 4th hour, my hands got pretty cold - specifically my thumb. Had to go inside. Unfortunately the vast majority of these reviews are extremely (and enthusiastically positive) so I suppose I am S.O.L.. Guess I will just use my old $30 mittens.

    Thanks for your review! What temperatures were you dealing with, and what were you doing when your hands got cold?

    Vassily - OK, so I was FIRST using it skiing in the east with 15F temps and about 85% humidity which obvs doesn't help. I Then used them on my annual help ski trip at CMH/Galena -7 days - Temperature of -4F to 0F BUT about 40% Rel humidity which made them much more tolerable. They were GREAT the first few hours, but definitely got cold later in the day and necessitated a hand warmer in each glove (mind you we are out there for 8 hours). The leather palm gets pretty damp as well, but like I said earlier EVERYBODY on this post likes them - maybe they are all only outside for 3-4 hrs. I believe they are 'good' but not great. I will try Black Diamond and/or OR this year - see what they're like. Best of luck! Scot

    warm + happy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    What a difference warm hands makes! These are the warmest mittens I've ever owned and I'll be sticking with them.

    Warm hands are happy hands

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Warm hands are the key to a fun day on the mountain. I love the durability and warmth of theses mittens. The two-piece design increases versatility making this mitten hold up in all conditions from powder days to warm spring sessions.

    Very warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    2 of my brothers have these mittens, and they both love them. They stay dry, and keep hands warm in below freezing temps. They are a little warm for spring days, but they do have removable liners if they get too hot.

    Game Changers

      These Hestra Heli Mittens are a GAME CHANGER! I have always suffered through frozen and wet hands which usually required multiple breaks throughout the day to warm them up so I can actually buckle my snowboard. Now, I can shred powder all day with toasty warm hands and no breaks needed. The buckle at the wrist is comfortable and tight while the powder bowl pull cord kept the snow out of my mitten when I had to dig myself out of some deep snow. I would definitely recommend these to my friends and highly suggest looking at the size chart.
