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

  Seem very well made and appear durable. You get a small sachet of Hestra leather conditioner, which is enough for one application. I have used this and the leather gloves seem very flexible.I like the woollen glove liners which fit nicely and are held in place with velcro. Using the Hestra size guide, the fit was spot on.There is a small removable carabiner on the outer cuff to clip the gloves together for storage or drying. And also there are attachment tabs just inside the cuff if you want to use glove retainers.Everything seems to be well thought of and well made. Overall, I'm very pleased with the gloves. Time will tell as to how well they last. The cost of the gloves was the best that I could find and they seem to be a quality item. Delivery was very prompt.

  I bought these gloves to replace a pair of Hestra Army Heliski gloves, which after 25 years of use have worn through in places. They have done over 400 days on the snow and have worked out much better value than the Gore-tex gloves which my wife likes, they seemed to fall to bits after a few years. I haven't worn my new gloves yet, aside from the Scottish Highlands in winter it's hard to see them being relevant to the UK. They are magnificent gloves though, without doubt the best I have ever seen. The workmanship is amazing, with not a stitch out of place. The inners have different material on the backs and the palms, and look like they will be warm, they even have little loops for hanging up for drying. The supply of leather balm that came with them isn't really enough to fully treat them, you will need either a tin of the rather expensive Hestra gunk to treat them, or the much cheaper option of Wheeler's Leather Balm. These gloves are of the same sort of quality you often find lift attendants and the piste patrol using. I have no doubt they will be excellent for skiing, they will last for many years and they look amazing.

  I bought the Fält Guide Gloves just under one month ago, and they have been superb in the prolonged winter in Denmark this year. Quality is second to none, as is comfort. They are very warm, without beeing 'thick' and clumsy. I would like to ad, that the service and info level from RayMears is equally good.

  Ordered these from Canada, they arrived within a week, they feel great, soft and flexible. We’ve only had -22 since they arrived they kept my hands warm and I was able to do my normal tasks with ease.

  Easily worth the money. The quality is excellent, service as to be expected from Woodlore, the John Lewis of the outdoor world! Gloves have excellent cold stopping power, They are soft, flexible and dexterity is good. They are not as built as they may look online. I opted for a size medium aka 8. Usually with gloves, I take a size 9 but figured the wool liners will compress and the leather will give over a period of time. Pricey, but cheaper through this site. I'm not expecting to purchase another pair of gloves for a very long time. Keep the leather in tip top condition and I see no reason the won't last a life time. Sometimes leather will tighten if exposed to heat, just take care of them and I figure they with be a companion for life!

  My friend has had a pair of these for a while and I've been considering getting my own for some time. Really glad I got them. Very comfortable and lovely and warm.

  Warm, durable and so much more comfortable than synthetic gloves. I have used them quite a bit in the last cold snap and they give great grip. They’re not waterproof (nor are they claimed to be) but they cope well with snow melt and some rain. One observation is about the sizing. I think they come up small. I measured my hands as described and came out as a comfortable 10. They fit snugly but I might go up to the size 11 for any other Hestra order I place, there there will be some. Quality is excellent.

  A well made high quality product. Very warm gloves but still give you mobility in your hands. If looked after these will last a very long time. The removable liner makes airing them very easy. If you are doing lots of work in the snow I would recommend spare liners, I do need to say that these will get very wet inside if you handle snow with them they are not waterproof at all. The wool liner does keep you warm even when wet. These are not sold as water proof gloves so I am not being critical. Overall well worth the money.

  When I received theses Hestra Falt Guide Gloves I was immediately impressed on how well they were made. The combination of Goat Skin and Leather is fantastic. The attention to detail is first class and I’m sure these gloves will last me for many years. Fantastically warm too and the fit for me is perfect. Best gloves I have ever owned and worth every penny. Highly recommended and the service from Woodlore is first class.

  Awesome bit of kit! They are a bit chunky but nothing like ski gloves and they definitely do what gloves are meant to do and keep your hands warm (warm is an understatement). They also look good and are made to last. The removable inner is brilliant as it allows you to wash it or dry the gloves quicker. My only fault is that the carabina hole doesn't fit a proper carabina through it but that's hardly important. Overall these gloves are brilliant and well worth the money. The fact that they are designed by a Swedish survival expert and endorsed by a British one says it all.
