Hestra Showdown: Seth Morrison Pro vs. Fall Line

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Looking to get a new pair of gloves and have narrowed it down to the Seth Morrison Pro gloves and the Fall Line gloves.

 

I ski on the east coast 90% of the time and get a trip or 2 in on the west coast per year.

 

Haven't found myself skiing in below 0 temperatures but definitely would love a glove that will keep my hands and fingers warm in 10*F weather.

 

What would be the better glove for me?

 

What are the advantages of one over the other?

quite a stretch to hope to be warm at 10F using these gloves, maybe the 3-finger option!

fall line is a little more comfortable to start with, maybe due to de pads inserts on the seth model as well as the longer cuffs vs neoprene and little to nod padding on the fall line

in terms of insulation they are probably pretty close and not made for the coldest days!

I'm a fan of the vertical cuff w over mitts when needed.

I got the Fall Line leathers at the beginning of the season and found them to be cold. They're going back to REI.

i use exactly the same... got the Hestra over mitts to go over... was skiing in windy -30*C last month and was fine... except for one time where i had to wait for 10 minutes without moving and my toes and fingers went and had to visit a mountain restaurant fast... 

 

Female friend bought the equivalent of the vertical cut but mitts and she was fine with them in those temperatures... 

 

I used the seths yesterday at -5*C with a good 40mph wind so think it was supposed to be -20*C and was fine without the over mitts except for about 10 minutes where i chucked them on as got cold on one of the lifts and it was fine after that again...
