Interested in picking up a new pair of long-lasting and warm gloves -- wondering which one would be better -- the Heli or the XCR? Will be snowboarding and skiiing
a) Hestra Heli Glove
b) Hestra Army Leather Gore-Tex XCR Glove
Given that the XCR is extra waterproofed with Gore-Tex, is saving $50 worth it to get the Heli's? Or is there something special about the XCR gloves (i.e. better waterproofing) that would be worthy for the extra expense?
Next -- about the sizing of Hestra gloves -- not sure if they run too small/big?:
Length of index finger to end of palm = 7.125 inches
Perimeter around widest part of hand = 7.800 inches
Should I get a size 8 or a size 9?
