Hestra Seth Morrison gloves... unimpressed so far

post #1 of 10

Snagged a pair of the Hestra Seth Morrison Pro gloves after finding them on sale during black friday weekend. Wore them outside today to walk the dog and my fingers were super cold. It's only 38... What gives?

Anyone else have this experience? What are your favorite gloves that keep you legit toasty?

I purchased the Hestra XCR (army leather) glove last year. Absolutely the warmest glove I've ever owned. Unless you get some ridiculously expensive battery charged heat gloves, I believe the XCR is really one of the best out there. I ski in really cold temperatures and the XCR's we're fine for 95% of the time. I remember only once last year when I was night skiing where I felt a little cold. In those rare occasions I wear mittens or just use some hand warmers.

I have Heli Guides and love them. The fit is a "little" loose and they are warm. Carry an extra wool liner to swap out for long days. Also have XCR's. Fit is a bit tighter, not as warm. Can't change liners.  Maybe your gloves a too tight?  Loose=warm. Tight= cold. Stretch them out?  and get an extra liner.

I like Hestras for mild conditions, say down to 20 degrees. They are not good gloves for actual cold, whatever the hype. There have been threads on this, suggest a search.

They are not the best when really cold.  IMHO the all leather ones get a bit swampy inside and then your done.  I have the short cuff XCR versions that work quite well when cold since they breathe.  But my Seths, not so much.  The VCF are warmer than the Seths too.

However, the are dexterious as......smile.gif

As beautiful as it is, the Seth is definitely not a cold weather glove..more for mild sunny conditions.

Black Diamond Guides keep my fingers warm on frigid, overcast and breezy New England ski days. They're good when the rain, sleet and hail falls as well.

Thanks, I was just wondering what everyone's particular experience with the Seth was. Appreciate it.
