I had the prior version of that glove.  Great combination of dexterity and warmth. Definately not the warmest glove out there but the fit was terrific and comfort level the best ive had.  Alas lost one in montana at the end of last year. If they made a solid color this year i would have bought another two pairs. The red black stripe is a bit too park rat for my taste.   I may have to sack up for the hestras, in the meantime ill stick with the kincos

I have the gray with red logo.  Not too flashy by any means.  Can't wait to get out and use it.

I have the Hestra 3 finger Seth morrison glove. Absolutely love it would recommend it without a doubt

post #67 of 118

lobster claws rule  - 3 finger is awesome, trying to score a pair of 3 finger xcr's in 10 if anyone has them

 

 

post #68 of 118

I have a new pair of Marmot that don't breathe at all, which is really unfortunate.

 

I have actually found Burton's Gore-tex gloves to be great.  I have had two pairs, each have lasted about 100 ski days.  Under-cuff fit is great to prevent bunching, which can cut off circulation.

post #69 of 118

I got in a punch-up wearing a pair of these. It was impossible to do any damage. But they are warm.

There's this Australian mob, Ocean and Earth, who make the best ski gloves and mittens ever. Actually they make for snowboarders, as they think snowboarding is edge, but anyway.  I had a small Mole fail to bite through my gloves at Stowe, and the mitts work in horrible temperatures... these things are waterproof and warm. they must contract out the design of these things as O and E are a surf brand.

post #71 of 118
Alright guys, you talked me into the Grandoes. After years of leather gloves (we all know what happens to them when they get wet) I'm giving these a shot. I will revisit this thread once I've had a chance to put them to the test this season! cool.gif If they are as good as you guys say I'll be taking recommendations for this year's one quiver eastern ski.

Hestras are dexterous as...

post #73 of 118

I live in the PNW, but ski mostly backcountry and need a glove that is reasonably warm, but not too warm, and that allows some dexterity.  I use 3 pairs of  gloves:  Lightweight non waterproof windstoppers for warmer days, Black Diamond Guide for cold, wetter days, and the 1st Ascent (see Eddie Bauer) Leather glove for colder drier days.  the first ascent allows more dexterity than the BD.  My wife's hands were getting cold and we talked to the manager at the Summit House (the home base for the Whittaker guides and the 1st Ascent stuff) and she used the leather ones too, so my wife bought a pair big enough to wear a lightweight liner inside on the colder days and she adds an overmitt on the coldest days.  She also carries liners and insulated mitts in addition to the overmitt.  I've had spectacularly bad luck with very expensive Marmot gauntlets falling apart or soaking up water (supposed to be waterproof).

post #74 of 118

while Skidad55 seems to have his solution, i'm a lucky one who's hands run hot .... i really get by with simple hunters fleece mittens where I can flip of the fingers and thumb for photo camera handling, but with age and the thought of snowboarding, i'm gonna pick up a pair with wrist guards ... i've found for my kids and wife the heat pockets a needed item, but i'll second the Glandoes .. They've loved em.  for me .. $5 "Menarde" gloves for the extreme cold or powder have proven well worth the price. ...  Black Diamonds ... their climbers are sweet! 

post #75 of 118

Swany. I have the nice leather molded ones and I have no complaints at all. Been through about 3 seasons with them and they're just now getting holey in the fingers. Had leather Black Diamonds before and I like the Swanys much more. 

post #76 of 118

Well, FWIW I have a pair of the Hestra vertical cut freerides that I have had for about 5 years now and they are AWESOME! That being said, I also have a pair of Swany x-cell 2. The Swanys are a little bit warmer but nowhere near as comfortable. And if it is THAT cold, you prob dont want to go outside anyway. I have skiied when it was -44C and my hands werent cold wearing the Hestras. But the swanys do have a zipper on the back to let some of the heat out if need be. The swanys are a little bit cheaper but if I was to recommend a pair I would say spend the extra money on the hestras. Keeping in mind I have nothing bad to say about the swanys, but the hestras are better IMO. Spend the extra $.

post #77 of 118

Yep,  BD Guides.   And the sheep fleece inside helps them go on and off more easily if your hands are wet.

SWIX is best.

 

I am using the Swix Men's Beaver Creek Racing Collection Glove

post #79 of 118
I've been in Lekis for two season now and they are definitely higher quality than Reusch etc. If you get the poles too you no longer need straps. I liked this combo so well that bought a second set for the other ski house. Also quite warm although our temps rarely get below teens. Would vote for Hestra as second choice. Dung
post #80 of 118

Absolute best gloves I have ever bought...... Leki World Cup race gloves.

post #81 of 118

I live in MI and we get bitter cold, high humidity weather with LOTS of wind...I use Swany and Hestra...top of line Swany's have gators, lift reins and a pocket on back for your heat pack warmers...they can take a lot of abuse also...

post #82 of 118
I have a black diamond legend and hestra xcr mitt, they take a lot of abuse and no sign of use, I believe there are a few brands that make good quality gloves, it will all depend on how much you wanna pay and how the glove fits in your hand. most of the top gloves cand be found for about $100 on sale or maybe less... I got my bd legends for $60 on sale :-)
post #83 of 118
The best ski gloves when it is bitterly cold or if you get cold fingers ingeneral are MITTENS!!!!!
Usually made by a snowboard company or anybody. I have been wearing some awesome mittens for years and my hands get cold only on days w frostbite warnings and so it's not advisable to be out too long anyway. Get real. This discussion is pointless. An ad generator. If its cold wear mittens. If its not, wear whatever you like. I use a nice pair of underarmor cold weather fleece gloves when it's spring.
I you insist on gloves get some you can put hand warmers in. And good luck
post #84 of 118

Hestra...no question.  I have the Seth Morrison Pros and they are toasty and super comfortable.  Don't leave home without em. 

post #85 of 118

Hestras all the way.  I prefer guantlets, so Hestra Heli.  I have the gloves and mitts.  I've tried many others, none compare to Hestra.

post #86 of 118

I have Hestras XCR and Heli 3-finger, and some Outdoor Research gloves they don't make anymore.  From cold to warm my choice is the OR gloves, Hestra 3-finger, Hestra XCR (only for warm spring days).  When the temperature really drops I get out my OR Alti-mitts.  My next pair will be either BD Guide gloves or Guide Lobster gloves.  My son has a pair of Hestra  RSL Vertical Cut 3-finger mitts and he swears by them.

interesting you say the xcr works just for spring days, I'm assuming you have the short cuff version, I've been pretty happy with my XCR Mitts, but the problem is you don't have any chance to be able to do anything while using it, always have to take the gloves off!

That's why I'm also considering the BD Guide Lobster or the Hestra Seth 3 finger, other than the fact of being 3 fingers they seem to offer more dexterity than the XCR 3 fingers

I've heard some bad comments about the BD guide liners to pack but not really sure about it, the hestra seth looks good but doesn't look warmer than the guide
post #88 of 118

I only use the XCR on "warm" days because they will not keep my hands warm on even a mildly cold day and they are the same length as the Heli 3-finger.  They were better the first season I had them or at least I think they were.

I use the Marmot Randonee as well, and they work for me down to around 0 degrees in Vermont.  After that, it's mittens.

Me as well.  

 

Dakine and Stoic also make fantastic gloves, the Bronco GT I have is going on a couple seasons, still super warm and waterproof!
