The Hestra Fält Guide Glove is a superb winter glove designed specifically for heavy use in the outdoors. It has been a trusted companion of ours here at Woodlore for many years, and is named after Sweden's leading expert in the field of survival training, Lars Fält, who was also involved in the development of the glove. We rely on the warmth and durability of these gloves during our winter expeditions overseas, as well as back home in the UK. As any Hestra glove owner will attest, the build quality, materials and attention to detail with Hestra gloves is exceptional.

These are the best-made gloves that I have ever seen. If you look after your gloves, they will last as long as you want. - Lars Fält

A tough-yet-supple glove made entirely of leather, the Falt Guide Glove comes complete with a pair of removable wool liners. This inner glove features wool terrycloth on the palm and wool pile on the top of the hand, and is of course highly insulating. This two-part system of separate inner and outer gloves provides numerous benefits. Removing the wool liners after use allows both parts of the glove to dry much quicker than all-in-one gloves, which is extremely useful when you're out in the snow day after day. For use over prolonged expeditions, it is recommended to take a spare pair of Hestra Liners with you, which can then be used while your first pair are left to dry back at camp. When dexterity is an issue, the leather outer glove can be used without the liner, offering better feel and control.

For use in extreme cold, the Falt Glove can be teamed with an over-mitt, such as the Hestra Seam Sealed Shell Mitten. The Falt Glove can also be used with other liners in the Hestra layering system.

  • External seams for improved comfort
  • Attachment point for use with Hestra Handcuffs
  • Eyelet with carabiner, for securing together when not in use, as well as for drying
  • Outer: Impregnated cowhide
  • Palm: Impregnated Army Leather goatskin
  • Lining: Removable woollen glove liner
  • Sample pack of Hestra Leatherbalm included with each pair of gloves
  • Colour: Brown/Black

  As usual the speed of service from woodlore has been exceptional. The fit of the gloves is perfect unless you plan wearing any thin liner gloves inside them in which case go for a size larger than you normally are. I do not have cold problems with my hands and so do not consider it a problem. The removable liners are a good idea and I will probably invest in a spare pair to allow for natural drying of the felted wool liners which are certainly not itchy which is always a worry with me. Although I have not had the opportunity to really test them out in severe weather they do grip an axe handle acceptably and allow full movement of the hand. Obviously delicate work is not a reality due to the construction. The materials as you would expect from Hestra are super and feel as hard working as you know they will be. I now must put them away for the rest of the year as the cold is now gone and will look forward to getting the gloves out again next winter along with the rest of my cold wardrobe. Thanks once again to the hard working team.

  These are extremely well made, comfortable and while only time and conditions will tell, they look to be very warm and durable.

  Starting at the beginning. The price of the gloves on the site was good compared to elsewhere and was not in a sale. Delivery was extremely quick and efficient. I used the size guide and my hand length came up perfect for the size 9 and I would say that the guide was accurate, so if you are between sizes then go up. The width is a little snug and I don't have particularly chunky hands but the leather is very supple and I am sure will stretch to give a perfect fit. The quality seems to be absolutely superb and they are extremely comfortable but not so bulky that I can't undo zips and buckles or handle a knife. I bought them for winter hill use and winter (or even the cold) isn't here yet so I cannot comment on their performance. I bought them to replace an old pair of Goretex gloves that have finally given up the ghost. First impressions are that they are warmer, they certainly won't melt like the reinforced palm on the old ones if you have to handle something hot and I think they will be a lot easier to take off and put back on with damp hands with the wool liner. My only concern is how well they will perform and then dry out in the wet but being able to remove the liner so easily should help that. On first impressions I would absolutely recommend them. I also own a few items of Fjallraven and Bergans gear. It is all very pricey but so far no piece of this Scandi gear has been anything less than superbly made and high performing. None of them seem to have sold out to the mass market yet.

  As many others have noted, these are a wonderful pair of outdoor gloves for cool to cold weather. Have tested these in the Australian Alps recently and they were perfect for a multi day hike in temps around 3C and winds of 80Kph. Have ordered a couple of pairs of spare liners for those occasions when they could get wet. Consistent sizing across other Hestra gloves I have.

  An expensive pair of gloves. Would be tempting to only use them on special occasions. I haven't. I've used them regularly around the farm in Scotland for the past three months and they have stood up to everything I've thrown at them, including moving a lot of heavy and rough concrete blocks. There is hardly a mark on them. In the cold weather they were warm, rather than hot. For hot, you need Hestra mittens. The only minus point is that they are a snug fit and just a bit of a struggle to get on. A larger size would have meant the finger length would have been too long, and a bit of a struggle to get off for tasks such as for answering the phone or a job that needs fingers. But overall I like them very much and I feel they will last a long time.

  Amazing gloves with excellent advice from Woodlore regarding sizing and a spare set of liners. The detailing and build quality of these gloves really do justify the Hestra price tag.

  These are the best gloves I have ever owned. I found the sizing guide perfect and the gloves are a perfect fit. The two part design is fantastically versatile and the build quality is exceptional. They are supplied with a care guide and small sample of the Hestra balm which is great for ensuring the gloves are well maintained. I highly recommend these gloves. As always the customer service from Woodlore is outstanding.

  This is my Second pair of these gloves, I sadly lost the first pair whilst out walking. They are the best gloves I've ever bought, the quality is superb and they are excellent at keeping you warm. I suffer with Raynaud's syndrome and these are the best non heated gloves, for helping to keep it at bay.
