When you're in the Rockies.

Apart from being high and rocky, the Rocky Mountains are known for being bitterly cold, so suit up with the Hestra Women's Heli Mittens when you venture out to ski some cold Rocky Mountain powder. Built with soft leather and a waterproof, breathable membrane, these mittens will keep your hands dry and remain intact after a long season of skiing. For warmth, Hestra insulated these gloves with a fleece liner that can be removed and dried out after a snowy day, and it added Fiberfill insulation for reliable warmth and comfort in seriously cold conditions. Hestra gave the Helis a slimmer profile for a more women-specific fit, and a hook-and-loop wrist strap ensures a snug and secure fit.

  • Women-specific mittens ideal for midwinter powder days
  • Hestra Triton polyester exterior with durable Army Goat leather palm
  • Waterproof and breathable Trion insert
  • Fiberfill synthetic insulation retains warmth when wet
  • Removable fleece liner for additional warmth
  • Hestra was founded in Sweden in 1936

Can't beat Hestra

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

These Hestra gloves feel amazing! The inside is very soft and not bulky. There is room for hard warmers too! It's too early in the season to test them:-)

Great looking Glove

    Great looking glove. Perfect color. Fits to size. Warm

    Love these mittens

      I love these mittens. They are nice and warm and the perfect mitten for ski days.

      Favorite Mittens

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have tried mittens from Black Diamond, OR, Dakine, Arc'teryx, you name it. These are the warmest yet for my poor circulation hands! Staying dry on the wet days and pairs well with some hand warmers. The wrist cuff is also a must for on the chairlift! When it comes time for new gloves I will grab myself another pair of these.

      For the Wife!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      She has very cold hands and always struggles to keep them warm on cold days. I finally convinced her to go with a mitt even though she really didn't ever want to. These have been great so far. Very high quality mitt like all of hestra's stuff. We haven't used them on a super frigid day but so far they have been great and even breathe well on the warmer days. No complaints yet!

      Sick Mitts

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Accidentally got these fo my girl, she dont know that though. She loves them, warm, comfortable and fit great. she says she loves the "wrist strap thingy"

      Wonderful warm mittens!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I purchased these mittens for cross country skiing in northern Minnesota. Every year I am miserable because my hands/fingers are so cold. This year my hands stayed nice and warm! I am so happy that I decided to purchase these mittens. I will never buy any other brand again!

      Wonderful warm mittens!

      Nice mittens!

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

      Purchased for my wife who runs a bit cold in her hands. She loves the colors, the fit and flexibility. They keep her dry, with a snug enough fit to insulate, but enough extra room for additional liners if needed. These are great!

      Warm Hands

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      So many things to love about these mittens. Haven't had cold hands yet but also don't feel like my hands get sweaty. Love the liners but they are a little difficult to remove. The wrist strap is super sturdy. Just wish they had an option for a black or tan leather because the white got dirty the first time I wore them.

      Happy wife, Happy life.

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

      I bought this for my wife...she LOVES them! She always complained about cold fingers in gloves and any mitten that has finger slots. The interior is nice and plush for an excellent feel on the hand. The warmth is superb and like the fact you can wash and dry the liner easily. The price is worth it because you pay for quality. I bought a men's version too, and snowblowing is even more glorious. It's a nice soft leather in the palm and have decent tactile dexterity.

      Hestra heli Mitt Review

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Like many other reviews, these mittens ROK. Warm, no frills carabiner connections for tying on pants, removable liner for quick easy drying or washing. Keepers for wrist are second to none. If I had any suggestions it would be a different color "palm" instead of white. Does show dirt. Well worth the additional investment. Would absolutely recommend for ladies who get cold hands, those days of cold fingers will be in the past.

      Warm Gloves

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After reading several reviews, I finally made the decision to invest a bit more in these mittens. I'm so happy I did, as they truly are the first pair that have kept my hands warm in the coldest temps (0-15 degrees F) while skiing. The leather makes them durable and the wrist length helps protect cold air from getting in to the glove. If you ski often, I highly recommend making the jump to Hestra.

      Nice and warm

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

      I purchased these for my daughter who always has cold hands, she usually has to stop snowboarding because her hands get so cold. I looked at the reviews and every one said how warm they were and she agrees, she went boarding the other day in 10 degrees and said her hands did not get cold at all. Thanks to every one for reviewing these as she can finally go and enjoy boarding.

      Warm!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Got these for my mom who has bad circulation in her hands so they get cold very easily. She skis in Summit County Colorado at Copper and Breckenridge. They Keep her hands nice and warm as well as dry!

      So warm

        I borrowed my sisters hestra mittens last winter and decided to buy my own for this upcoming winter. I always have cold hands when skiing but these gloves kept my hands toasty all day. The fleece lining is so warm i didn’t need any liners or hand warmers. The fit is true to size (i used the sizing chart and measured my hand to select the size) can’t wait to use these!

        Keep 'em Toasty!

          I have the men's version and so I thought I would get my wife a pair this year so she can keep her mitts warm like me :) The sizing chart was super helpful.
          The wrist leashes are a nice feature so you don't lose one on the lift... They have a smooth and durable leather exterior (which also comes with a small leather care kit) and a soft interior. I'm sure my wife will love the mittens just as much as I do.

          Love this mitten.

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size

          My first 3 days out in this mitten were COLD, snowy and gusty. Frost bite conditions.... got some on my nose....but my fingers were good, with a couple stops inside to warm everything up. I was surprised at how warm they were after reading other reviews. Love them and happy I bought them.

          Great Mitt

            Bought for wife who always complains about cold hands, (from Savannah) not complaining any more. Used size chart with her hand, size was true.

              Extremely Warm on the mountain

              • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
              • Fit: True to size
              • Size Bought: Small

              These were given as a gift to my sister as the solution to her constant cold hands when skiing. Size small fit true to size, and the black and white color looks great. While on the mountain she was saying she'd never worn a warmer glove. Her hand has never been cold or wet wearing the glove, and even though it is a mitten, it still offers dexterity for poles, and adjusting a helmet.
              Tighter around the wrist but room for fingers, she said she couldn't be happier with how the glove fits and performs.
              Excellent buy, one of the best mittens on the site.
