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

  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.

  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.
