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

  This was a Christmas gift from my Son, the fit was perfect due to me having other Hestra models of gloves. As yet I have only used them out walking in the local woods in temperatures down to -2oC and they are toasty. Roll on when I can camp and put them to test properly.

  Possibly the best gloves on the market, warm, tight fitting, waterproof and absolutely bomb proof. The removable wool inner is a nice feature as it helps the glove to dry if it gets wet. They put up with a week long of camping out, hiking and bushcrafting in the Scottish winter in some horrendous conditions. To top it off they look great, couldn’t recommend them enough.

  Superb gloves. Very warm and well made I know these will last me years. The useful clip to attach to a belt loop is very handy.

  Used the measuring table to determine I was a size 7 and months later when they finally came back in stock I thought why not? Even though they are technically outdoor gloves I wear them on a motorcycle, now bear with me. Riding during 0500am in the morning to work produces a unique type of pain on your fingers in winter. I literally have searched for years looking for an appropriate winter glove to help stave off the winter chill on my long suffering fingers. I have spent easily more than double, and then some, on motorcycle winter gloves which I deduced had too much padding and the material used made it feel like I couldn't grip the clutch properly and they still didn't keep my hands warm. Now I am aware it is currently only October 22 2020 and undoubtedly the temperature will plummet but these are the best winter gloves I have come across. If you measure your hands for the appropriate size with the padding inside they are millimeters perfectly fitting, not so much with the padding taken out. Along with German made boots, Scandinavian made items are bought with relative confidence by myself. The level of craftsmanship and quality of materials used considering how incredibly competitive priced these gloves are £85 to myself makes these gloves an absolute steal. You receive a small sample of Hestra leather protecting balm, allegedly to protect the leather and keep it supple. Upon applying the cream it almost immediately darkens the leather which it does say will happen it probably keeps the leather supple but I'm not sure if it waterproofs them. The usual impeccable delivery service, pretty sure they arrived the following day. This website has high quality products and flawless delivery. I have ordered quite a few things from here now and am yet to be disappointed.

  Great gloves. Fit is on par with other Hestra gloves I’ve had. Build is good and leather used is pliable. Seem warm enough so far, certainly warmer than my Alpine Pro Patrol Gloves from Hestra. The wool liners are nice, different weight between palm and back of hand. Fast shipping from Woodlore and good price compared to what they cost at home in Canada. Thanks guys.

  A superb pair of gloves. I had waited patiently to get a stock notice email on a pair of size 11 gloves, so when it came I ordered them straight away, not to miss out. I am glad I did as they ran out only a few days later. They are very warm, and work well for drying with the removable liners too. They accompanied me in December up to the forest in Sweden, they were perfectly cosy, and performed just as I hoped, keeping my hands lovely and toasty. Thanks very much.

  The gloves are hardy, the leather and wool lining make for a great pairing. They kept my hands warm in winter alpine conditions. The carabiner was useful to attach to ski tour bib trousers and backpack. I've not tried it out yet in sub 0 Celsius conditions.
