Hestra Heli 3-Finger Glove Reviews


doesnt get any better


Pros: warm, dry, claws

Cons: leather upkeep?

I have the XCR version of these gloves. By far the nicest glove I've ever owned, you can tell that the second you put them on and look at them. If you want the best, this glove is hard to top.   Very warm, soft liner, and dry! Handcuffs come in handy for long chairlift rides.   I actually spilled chunks of snow inside the liner several times. I put the glove on feeling the snow with my fingers, and after about 30 minutes, the snow was gone and liner was very dry.   The claw allows enough movement in the hands to do most tasks you'd ordinarily do with gloved hands: tighten buckles, adjust zippers and goggles, grip poles, etc.   I've worn them in temps...

Pros: warm, durable, good dexterity

Cons: price

As a ski instructor I have been using these gloves for 3 years now. Great on cold days. Love the hestra handcuffs, means never dropping on the lifts or in the snow when i need to take them off. I frequently treat with mink oil to keep them soft and waterproof. I was worried that the handle tow would tear them up , but the show no adverse wear from my mistreatment. these gloves are worth twice what they charge.

Best I've had


Pros: Curves, seams, quality, wrist straps

Cons: price, leather treatment

About $135 with an extra set of liners.  The precurved construction and no interior seams make for a very comfortable, no fingertip pressure experience.

Me too


Pros: Great warmth with good dexterity. Well made.

Cons: A goggle squeegee would be nice.

I'm on my second pair, in fact the first pair pre-dated the wrist strap feature. The first pair looks a bit ratty, but are serviceable. Mostly I had worn the thumb and index fingers of the liner through. After looking into it, I learned that Hestra sells replacement liners, so I bought a pair last year. Hestra also makes a couple of good glove liners that fit very well inside this glove. Check them out at Hestra's web site. If the price is daunting, check out Backcountry.com's spring mark-downs. I bought both pairs that way.

I will buy Hestra for the rest of my life


Pros: Warm and Rugged

Cons: Nothing Major, but it lacks a snot rag thing on the thumb

When I was little my dad had a pair of 3-fingered gloves that he sweared by and recently after losing a glove, I found these. The build quility is great -- well stitched and good materials. These gloves also have some nice features such as wrist straps and a caribiner to hold them together rather than buttons or a cheap plastic clip. Also the lining, which make up most of the insulation, comes out to speed up drying (In my the last pair, there were liners and further insulation within the glove and were hard to dry without being put in a dryer). And of course they are very warm like mittens, with the versatility of gloves.  I would recommend these gloves to...

Hestra 3-finger


Pros: HIgh quality construction and warm

Cons: none

My first purchase of a high end glove. The Hestra is a great glove/mitten. I found the claw finger to be very useful. Functionally they are closer to gloves than mittens. Add Merino wool liners for additional warmth.

nice glove/mitt


Pros: leather palm, great quality

Cons: not for extreme cold

well made, nice wrist band keeps gloves handy if using camera, etc. Waterproof. Has a removable (velcro-ed) liner. You can use the shell alone if it's warm out. The liner dries quickly which is very important to me. It means I can use them day after day without having a damp glove.
