These gloves make me want to do a hulk fist smash. They are beefy and feel indestructible. The stiching and quality of overall construction are top notch. The attention to detail in the gloves features does not go unnoticed. The shells themselves are completely waterproof and the liner will shed water to some extent. I use these ice fishing in sub zero temps and have been impressed with how they have held up and how warm they are. I'm constantly taking at least one glove off fully to deal with lines, hooks, fish, etc., and while mittens would be ideal for this situation, these gloves have worked very well. I have no problem getting in and out of them, the only exception being if my hands are wet--I use a microfiber towel to dry my hands off a lot. The gauntlets are awesome and super long, something that comes in handy when you are dealing with lot's of snow. The gauntlet drawstring works great too, loosening it is as simple as grabbing the pull tab and giving it a yank. The Primaloft One insulated inners are very nice and in certain conditions I simply use them without the shells, and at other times, I will put on just the shell. It's like getting three pair of gloves. Dexterity is not the best with gloves this size, but they are not designed for fine motor skill type of actions. Overall I give them a solid thumbs up and five stars.
These are my first pair of outdoor research gloves and I love them so much I have purchased a second pair. These are way too warm for my needs here, but I travel a bit. Having worked as a paramedic for years I found that even if my hands are too warm, the patient rather me have warm hands than cold ones. So overkill is not a terrible thing. That being said, these things are amazing. I keep them for the cold wet nights/days and they are impervious to everything I have thrown at them. They have held up well and the removable liner is great to allow them to dry, IF you get any moisture in them.
Ordered the large and xl but one too big and the other too small. Also, seems like the liner would pull out when not wanting it to. Sending them both back and keeping the Hestra Guide. I love the warmth and fit of the Guide.
I have these gloves in medium. I'll leave most of the features for other reviewers to comment on, I wanted to make a note about the fit. My experience with the gloves comes from winter backpacking in Colorado.
The gloves come with a Pertex lined Primaloft insulated liner. First of all, they are red inners, and I think the fingertips get dingy because of this. They are certainly warm, I mostly use these gloves without the shells, favoring dexterity, and then I put the overshells on when I just want to be really warm. The problem is: the liners have fingers which are too long, which is really frustrating when you're trying to use tent zippers, cook, eat, etc. The thumb is especially long. So I got the wrong size? I don't think so. When I go to put the shells on, I have to slam my hand in, as if the shell is too small -- the fingers are really tight, and about the right length. But the thumb is still too long! I feel like I have pretty average, maybe even long, hands, and these gloves fit weird. I wish there was a way to get small liners and get medium shells.
