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

  Great gloves. These work really well as a solid hard wearing glove for working in the outdoors. They're well insulated and by having a spare pair of inners it allows the option to change them and maintain a dry environment for your hands even if working hard. The quality of the stitching and shape means these should last, even with hard punishment in the wet Scottish Highlands.

  I have spent my first few days with these gloves doing spring trapping for beaver and muskrat in the NWT, Canada. Temperatures ranged from -18 to -2 C from morning to afternoon. They have a great balance between warmth and dexterity and I have been able to drive a snowmobile, handle traps, tie knots, and cut firewood. I've been comfortable the whole time. They breathe well, my hands have not been damp or sweaty. The gloves have stayed dry enough that I haven't needed to use the spare liners I bought for them. I can't comment on durability yet obviously, but my impression is favourable. I hope they are durable enough to justify the expense of another pair when they wear out because, they are the best gloves I have owned so far.

  These gloves are as good as all the reviews say they are. Tough construction from top quality leather. I measured a size 10 on the chart and the size 10 I ordered fit like perfectly. They were warm in the -8 degree Celsius during the day when I tried them. I like the wool removable liner, it is comfortable but doesn't make the glove too bulky therefore dexterity is not bad for a cold weather glove. It appears that they will stand up to heavy use but only time will tell. They are pricey but the quality seems to justify the price. Service to Canada was excellent for my order, the gloves including shipping and currency exchange worked out to be substantially less than I could purchase them for anywhere online in North America. Overall very satisfied.

  Exceptional quality, this is the first time my hand are warm in gloves. Good grip, the leather is very soft and not too bulky. I order an 8 and the size fit perfectly. Like the two gloves systems, easy to dry.

  Nice glove but liner quality has changed measurably. Would not use this past -9c, previous liners are good to about -15. Still great gloves though. Woodlore service is great.

  The guide gloves are well made with quality leather and heavy duty stitching. I wanted an all leather glove that will last for years and this fits the bill. The lining is comfortable and stays completely in place when removing the gloves. I treated the gloves with the Hestra leather balm, which softened them up even more. The balm slightly darkened the brown and made it look much richer in appearance. I am going to wear them a bit then treat them with some Snoseal to heighten the water resistance. I wear an Arc'teryx Theta AR shell in the snow and the glove cuffs will fit under the sleeve with a minimal amount of effort. I also want to share my great experience ordering from Ray Mears/Woodlore. I live in the United States and was a bit concerned about ordering across the pond. The sites product price was by far the best I could find and shipping charges to the US were incredibly low. Buyers from the US can shop here without worry!

  These are exceptional winter gloves. I bought them because I have had a very difficult time finding gloves that are comfortable, durable and able to provide protection in extreme cold. These fit the bill perfectly. The ability to replace the liners (like in the old days) is also a big plus. Almost certainly the best pair of winter gloves I have ever purchased. By the way, the service from Woodlore was exceptional. I placed my online order on a Sunday and all of my purchases were delivered (from the UK to Minnesota USA) within the week. Thank you.

  Ended up purchasing one size larger. Allows for warm air to circulate around inside. The quality is outstanding. Supple, tough and reliable. I will absolutely purchase another pair if these ever fail (which they won't). The palm is still super soft but definitely tougher than the 'lighter coloured' leather on top. These are definitely high quality and worth the price. Buy yourself the balm to secure your investment. What's a few more $/£/€ when you've already bought these?
