Hestra Upgrades Patrol Gloves

New line of Army Leather Patrol gloves are more durable, have heated liner

The POWDER staff is attending SIA in Denver this week—the snow sports industry’s biggest trade show, where we are getting a first look at the best gear for skiers. For more reviews and first looks at new gear, go here.

It seems like every guide I see—cat, heli, resort—is using Hestra gloves. And for good reason—they’re warm, durable, and don’t limit dexterity too severely. Plus, Hestra has been making gloves for skiers for 80 years. New for 2017-18, Hestra is taking a page from their own book and evolving the Heli line of gloves to include warmer and more durable fabrics (including goat leather and a melange outer) and an optional heated liner.

The new line of Army Leather Patrol gloves has under the cuff and over the cuff options as well. Expected retail is between $130-$150.
