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

  I have had these for a few months. Admittedly they have not been used a great deal due to a rather mild British winter, so far. Build quality seems superb however, whilst not advertised as waterproof they happily kept my hands warm and dry when walking in constant rain for 3 hours. Overall, time will tell for certain, but they are comfy, thick, warm and I trust them to perform.

  Now, I have only had these gloves a few weeks but they have already had a bashing in -18 weather, my fingers and hands were toasty. Very very well made with superb double stitching and quality inner gloves. They have the dexterity and a good finger feel I think these gloves will last many years. I have treated them with 3 heated layers of gold wax and have had no problem with wet hands in both rain and snow along with using them to buck wood in the snow for a few hours. Easy to remove the liners, I would recommend these gloves all day long. In short very well designed and very well made if looked, after I can't see me purchasing another pair for a very long time. Very quick delivery and outstanding Woodlore service. Thank to you all involved.

  Excellent gloves, well made, very warm and fit perfectly. When I was buying, I was debating on going a size bigger because of the extra inner glove, but don't, my normal hestra size fits perfectly so just go with your true size and the woodlore shop. Excellent service, fast delivery, 5* all the way.

  This was definitely one of the best online purchases I have ever done. The customer service by email was so quick and helpful. I ordered the gloves on Monday and received by Friday noon and I live in Estonia. The gloves feel super good on my hand and I can't wait to wear them on a daily basis.

  Delivery is very quick and packaged well. I haven't had chance to use them seriously yet as cold weather hasn't really arrived, but they certainly feel very warm. I plan to use them as skiing gloves here in the French Alps. They fit well and the removable inners make so much sense. I got a spare pair of inners to switch them over for washing, or if they get damp. First thing I did when they arrived was to wax them with the included sachet. It darkens the leather slightly but the protection is worth it. Their longevity has obviously yet to be tested, but they do seem very well made and I can recommend them so far. I can also recommend this supplier - good information on their website, fast delivery and decent packaging.

  I have bought the gloves for my son as he lives in Toronto and the weather there can be extremely cold. He is thrilled with the gloves and says the fit is good and they keep his hands warm while out in the cold.

  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.
