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.

  • 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

  Measure yourself first. I am a Size 9 in circumference, but an 11 in length. Luckily, I ordered Size 11, and they just fit, verging on being too small. I have not deducted any stars because I have not yet used them and the shell will stretch. They seem to be very well made and designed (the little tube of dressing is a nice touch, especially since it can be kept with the gloves, on the snaplink). A1 customer service from Woodlore, as before.

  Very good quality gloves so should be very durable. Not had chance to use them when it's very cold so far, thanks to the wool liner they have been warm. Recommended!

  A very good quality glove, I used them for skiing and they were warm, my only concern is the wool liner which was difficult to use with wet hands.

  Absolutely outstanding product. Simply the best outdoor/bushcraft glove I have ever owned. Quality and resilience comes at a cost. These gloves are worth every penny.

  I found these gloves to be really handy. I'll give them a 5* thumbs up and wouldn't palm them off on just anyone. They fit like a...

  Just ok- very nice fit and comfortable, but I question how much the other reviewers are using them might be for the fashionista forester. Mine wore through in a few places in a year, and while they were very comfortable the other leather ones I bought at the same time for £12 are still going, protect my hands better and were much easier to wash. So if you want some comfortable gloves that you can pose in these are great, but if you are doing any farm/forest work you might be better getting yourself 10 pairs for the same price of something more durable.

  Really excellent. Very supple leather. Obviously darkens on waxing. Must be waxed/oiled for water resistance. Liners are really cosy. All very well designed and very warm. Only as waterproof as waxed leather can be. Swap out the liners as suggested. Cuff retainers are also ideal.

  As usual the speed of service from woodlore has been exceptional. The fit of the gloves is perfect unless you plan wearing any thin liner gloves inside them in which case go for a size larger than you normally are. I do not have cold problems with my hands and so do not consider it a problem. The removable liners are a good idea and I will probably invest in a spare pair to allow for natural drying of the felted wool liners which are certainly not itchy which is always a worry with me. Although I have not had the opportunity to really test them out in severe weather they do grip an axe handle acceptably and allow full movement of the hand. Obviously delicate work is not a reality due to the construction. The materials as you would expect from Hestra are super and feel as hard working as you know they will be. I now must put them away for the rest of the year as the cold is now gone and will look forward to getting the gloves out again next winter along with the rest of my cold wardrobe. Thanks once again to the hard working team.
