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

  Good gloves. Fit was perfect for me when using the Hestra online size-finder but I later tried different Hestra gloves in the same size and some were not a good fit. The cuff style is perfect for putting a jacket cuff over and getting a good seal. Two downsides, firstly the price which is a little bit high and secondly the warning that they are not suitable for handling skis. I thought the whole point of the super-tough goat army leather was exactly to withstand this sort of use.

  Came to Canada quickly without having to pay duty. Lovely gloves. Sizing seems accurate. They fit like a glove.

  As a Reynaud's sufferer, I have tried a range of gloves, but the quest ends here! So far, on the basis of a few days' walking in temperatures down to 0C in the Peak District, my hands have been very comfortable. Combined with a long-sleeved Merino base layer below a lightweight fleece and Paramo Alta 2 jacket they kept me pleasantly warm, and I found it easy to do simple manipulative tasks without having to remove them. Combined with a pair of Hestra Pullover Mittens, I had no problem with continuous rain and wind-driven sleet. The removable liners did not get very wet, but they did dry out quickly. The gloves are beautifully made. I am looking forward to trying them out in more demanding conditions, but am impressed so far. The size chart enabled me to choose the correct size (10) and I found that the over mitts of the same size fitted perfectly. In addition to the best price on the internet, service from Ray Mears Bushcraft was brilliant - no charge for postage and packing, almost immediate dispatch and delivery within two days of ordering. I will definitely use the site again. There's an added bonus too - no nagging emails requesting a review before you've had the chance to try out the product!

  Excelent quality gloves. The liners are warm and comfortable, when combined with the gloves they provide a robust combination with great dexterity. I would definitely recommend these gloves.

  My hands get cold quickly and I have bought quite a few pairs of gloves over the last few years that have claimed to keep me warm but none have succeded very well. I decided to give these ones a try after some searching online and reading reviews. Had them on the other weekend on a trip up the Nevis range and must admit I`m impressed with them. My hands were nice and warm wearing them. Took them off to take some photos and by the time I was finished my hands were getting cold again. Within about ten minutes of putting them back on my hands were warm again which I thought was a good test and a great result. They are a bit expensive but they do their job well.

  As to be expected, item arrived quickly. I already own a pair of the Hestra Fall line gloves so I knew what to expect quality wise. The Falt Guide is no exception; stitching, fit and materials used are on point. The fact the lining comes out would allow for drying quicker compared to the Fall line model, which is a bonus. I would highly recommend the gloves and even more so the company. Thanks once again 5/5.

  Perfect fit if you follow the Hestra guide. A very well made pair of winter gloves, using high quality materials. I've only worn these briefly to check sizing, but they are very warm and just ooze quality. I like the fact they included liners which are removable and that you can also use other liners if the temperature isn't as cold, or the included ones get sweaty. Very supple leather is used, and the carabiner is a nice touch. Hestra in my opinion make the best gloves available, while not cheap they are certainly worth the price. Woodlore is also the most competitive site for these particular gloves in the UK.

  I have many gloves, and most perform well for UK use. However after many years of trips to the arctic, and trying everything going, I finally got these. I don't favour dedicated ski gloves with draw cord closures, they are too tricky to get on and off for what I do. The Falt glove is quite a bulky glove, but does fit underneath most Scandinavian wide sleeved jackets. I'm not sure that one could get the sleeve of a UK winter mountaineering jacket over the glove, but my Fjallraven Parka and Haglofs jacket fit over them perfectly, so job done. (the glove just fits nicely into the loop of a ski pole at max length.) This all means they are easy to get on and off, and even after a tumble snow stays out. I am normally a size 10.5 in gloves, having long fingers, and had trouble deciding when measuring my hands what size to go for, so I ended up going for size 11 which proved just right. The easy fit allows good blood flow, but the glove is still easy to perform tasks such as tying knots.The liners are easy to get in and out, and I always carry a spare pair, even though I've never needed them. The glove remains warm even when wet from sweat. I found that the liners are best dried by simply removing and chucking on a warm floor, or placing high up in a warm cabin, while the glove itself needs to be kept away from heat, so chuck it on a chair or table. So far so good, an easy glove to live with for skiing and many other jobs, but is it warm? You bet, best glove for warmth I've ever had, better still it works well over a large temperature range. I've had sweaty but comfortable hands at minus 3 and toasty hands at minus 33. Not the best glove for wet UK, but hands down best for the arctic. They appear durable so I am expecting many years of hard use. The balm is also top notch and should keep them soft, supple and water resistant. I put way too much on, but it sort of soon soaks in so no big deal. Just whack it on with warm bare hands, let it soak in overnight. I have never used liner gloves, but if travelling by sled or snow mobile might consider them, as I would over mitts. Over mitts would also be good for shelter building, as handling snow blocks will make any glove wet in time.
