Is This For Me?
For the all day mountain person, who likes to use what those in the know are using, the Army Leather Heli glove is a great glove.
Full leather gloves always give a slightly snug fit but don't let this stray away from your standard sizing, as the gloves will break with a little wear to fit the size of your hand when holding a ski pole.
There is no substitute for a good quality glove on the mountain. Cold hands on the slopes and the lifts can be incredibly painful and in extreme cold dangerous, so make sure you invest in a well fitting pair of gloves.
We sell a few brands of gloves to suit different budgets. Hestra have a very strong reputation amongst season workers and regular skiers due to their durability and great fit. Leather Hestra models include a small sachet of leather treatment, and whatever brand of gloves you decide on, it is important to ‘feed’ any leather areas regularly so that they maintain their water resistant properties and soft feel.
To size yourself up for gloves, you should measure around the hand excluding your thumb. This measurement in inches is your glove size. Hestra also offer additional information on finger length which can further enhance the fit. This information is available when you select a glove on our website.
You can also choose between gloves, mittens and the exciting new 3-finger format. This is a personal preference, although mittens allow you to insert glove warmers more easily.
When buying gloves it is important to also consider buying a pair of glove liners. These are relatively inexpensive, and like layering you clothing, help keep hands dry by wicking away sweat, and then trap dry air to keep your hands warm. Being thin they are easily stowed away in your jacket pocket when it warms up. When sizing, do not adjust glove or lining size, just order your normal size. We offer several types of glove liner.
