so, i'm in the market for new gloves and came here to see what everyone recommends. seems like hestra has a pretty strong following here. i've also seen several people recommend the marmot ultimate and black diamond guide gloves. the hestra gloves that everyone seem to love are leather, and i've noticed quite a few posts about drying the gloves out. so, what's so great about leather gloves that get soaking wet? the marmot and black diamonds both have the gortex insert. why would anyone not get the gloves with the gortex xcr insert? i guess the real question is: given the choice between the hestra alpine pro heli and the same glove with the gortex insert, why would one opt for the regular heli without the insert? just trying to understand what people like so i can make a good decision. my current gloves are just some scott gloves i got many years ago.
