The only problem with Hestra is although it says "Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the town of Hestra." They are in fact made in China.

Keep that in mind. Paying a premium for clothing that is made in china pissed me off especially since i read this prior to buying them and didnt find until after that even their top end models are made in china.

I emailed their head office saying its very misleading that their sites says "development" is done in Hestra. Their reply was "almost all fabics products are made in china". I said replied saying BS i have plenty of top end cloths made in Italy, Canada, and Germany. While it may cost more to make their its simply reflected in the cost in the product i.e. $200 for a pair of gloves

Is what it is, but the verbiage on their site, and reply to my email pissed me off a little.
