As one of the most popular and recognized gloves in Hestra's Alpine Pro ski glove collection, the Heli Glove offers extensive wrist coverage for deep powder snow skiing and extremely cold mountain conditions.

Bombproof and warm. Hestra Heli!!!!!
I wore these gloves on Whistler Blackcomb in BC over 3 days in January. The temps were between 25-35 with snow all day one of the days. These gloves were worm and comfortable. Some of your dexterity may be compromised. They are a little bulky in the fingertips (but not to the point of being uncomfortable or annoying). The inner liner doesn't allow your finger tips to touch the tips of the glove. There needs to be some space at the tips to generate heat but it makes strapping in (snowboarder# a little tuff but you can easily adjust. If you like your gloves tight or really snug order down a size. If you want to wear a glove liner underneath order exact size per your measurements. If you are a giant and have a giant hand order a size up #not recommended). The soft liner that comes with the glove is suffice but I still like to have the option. Worth the $$$$. If they are a little stiff at first before breaking the leather in, the leather conditioner you get with a pair of gloves will help soften them up. Those that know and appreciate a good quality glove will gravitate towards Hestra. Comparable to Burton's AK high end Gortex gloves, maybe a little warmer though. You will like being able to swap inner liners with your own or other Hestra liners.

On a cold powder day this is the glove to have! Gets a little warm on a forty to fifty degree day, but when the temps drop this is what I go for. I even bought a pair for my wife whose hands were always cold and now I can enjoy the day without her asking to go back into the lodge. She no longer has to use hand warmers. Great gloves that keep the snow out and the warmth in!

for the cold days
Haven't been out in the glove yet but its super warm and comfortable. The leather needs to be conditioned, they give you a small amount of the stuff. The cuffs are a nice touch and the removable liner is really in there, not likely to pull out.

I've made the mistake several times of buying cheap gloves that look cool. Those gloves usually work great for 20+ degree weather, but my fingers always freeze in colder weather. You will be happy you spent the extra money on these gloves if warmth is what your looking for.

This gloves are super comfortable and perform great, they seem to get a little cold at 10 or below but besides that would buy again
