Hestra has a glove for every outdoor activity, whether ripping up the glades, racing through the gates, climbing the highest peak or walking through the neighborhood. Hetra's been keeping hands warm for over 80 years. Bob's Sports Chalet carries a wide assortment of Hestra gloves, including ski gloves such as the popular Patrol glove, racing gloves and leather dress gloves.
Features to keep an eye out for in Hestra gloves:
Removable Linings - a great invention for those of us who need to "air out" or wash the liners due to excessive moisture.
Small pocket with zipper - perfect for adding a hand warmer to your glove for extra warmth
3 layer glove system - All Hestra gloves fit into its three layer system. Start with a thin liner followed by a base glove. For added warmth, add a shell glove on those bitter cold days.
Heated gloves - If you are really concerned about the cold, a heated glove allows you to adjust the temperature of your glove, ensuring a perfect climate for your hands.
Consider adding the Hestra Balm or the Hestra Handcuffs to your order. Using the balm is a great way to prolong the life of your Hestra gloves. It improves the water repellant nature of your leather gloves and prevents them from drying out. Hestra Handcuffs are very popular. If you're unfamiliar with handcuffs, its a lanyard attached to an elastic cuff on one end and your Hestra glove on the other. Handcuffs keep your gloves from falling off the chairlift when you remove the glove to check your phone messages.
The sizing of Hestra gloves follows a numeric system from 1 (baby) to 11. Adult sizing starts at size 6. The best way to determine the proper sizing of your Hestra gloves is to measure the distance (in cm or inches) between the bottom of your palm (wrist) to the top of your middle finger. Your hand circumference is also a factor in properly sizing your gloves. If the circumference of your palm at its widest point is significantly larger than the length of your hand measurement, we recommend going up a glove size:
|Hestra Glove Size||Hand Measurement|
|6||6.0 - 6.3 inches|
|7||6.4 - 6.7 inches|
|8||6.8 - 7.2 inches|
|9||7.3 - 7.5 inches|
|10||7.6 - 8.0 inches|
|11||8.1 - 8.4 inches|
