Mountain Hardwear Bazuka vs. Hestra Heli/XCR
Anyone have any experience with either of these gloves? I'm specifically looking for the warmest gloves I can buy that are also 100% waterproof. I've seen a video of the Bazuka's run under a faucet so I know they're great in that aspect but I'm not sure how warm they are. And I've heard mixed things about the warmth of both the Hestra Heli and the Hestra Army XCR. Any input?

I have the Hestra Heli 3-finger edition and I love em. The best gloves I've ever had. Just make sure you use the leather balm that comes with the gloves to keep it from cracking.

Thanks for the input, I've heard great things about the 3-finger version and might try them out some day. I ended up pulling the trigger on the MH Bazuka since they were on sale and I literally couldn't find one bad thing said about them. I'll post a short review about them when they come in since it seems like there isn't a whole lot of info about them around but they're definitely top of the line gloves from what I've read. But if I return them for any reason I'm definitely going to get some Hestra's I've heard their quality is second to none. And if anyone has any input please share
