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.
