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

  Well, I received my glove on time I was confident the size would be right as I have other Hestra gloves but as per your shopping guide they are perfect as good as your description. I read about these gloves on your website years ago and now I am a proud owner. Thank you for your prompt efficient service. I can’t report on function until July or August our winter when I am planning to walk the overland track In Tasmania.

  This is a great glove, my second pair, I work as a mountain guide and ski instructor, these are the only gloves that can handle the work. They will last a minimum of 5 years even longer if well cared for. Thank you for the great service.

  I was in the market for quality gloves that would accept hard use in the wilderness. I checked the Ray Mears site since everything there is top notch. I came across the Hestra Falt Guide Gloves and did a little more research. I decided to make the purchase and received them in about a week. That’s with international shipping too. The gloves are absolutely the best pair I have ever had. They are made very well with select leather and wool. The liners are removable and additional liners are available for purchase. I have no regrets with the purchase and expect years of wear out of them.

  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.
