Thumbs up Hestras :Hairy:

So... Need a new pair of killer gloves and after using the Search Button on the almighty Google Machine over the past year I've pretty much narrowed down to Hestra...

The two gloves I'm looking at are the Seth Morrison Pro:
(In black)


And the Seth Morrison Pro 3-finger:


Wanted to get a little input from the pros over here to see what they think would be more comfortable/beneficial.

I ride east coast mainly, but my hands and feet always get extremely cold so I want to combat that dilemma.

I'm going to try to get to the Ski Barn soon and see if they have both in stock to see what I like best, but I've heard good things about the trigger finger gloves and wanted some external input before I even set foot inside a store (even though I'll probably be ordering online)



Thanks everyone, hope to get some great discussion going here!

PS: Is Goretex gloves better possibly? My entire suit is gore-tex'd out so would leather be deviating from my norm or Leather > all?

I am not sure about this brand because I have never tried them but I have quiksilver trigger finger gloves and they are great. Super warm cuz your fingers are bunched together but you still have the freedom to grab things and more articulation then with mitts.

the leather on them requires maintenance to stay water proof.

I was looking at Hestra as well.

Hestra good........all leather good. The seams being reversed on the glove fingers seems kind of janky. Might mess with dexterity.

Hestra are great. Love trigger mitts. I like longer cuffs so I have other than sethmos. Seth is also a cool cat.... Just based on that last fact I'd get them. Lol

Hestras are amazing gloves but yes you need to constantly maintain them.

A single pair should last you "forever" depending on how abrasive your riding style / environment is.

I'd get Pow gloves instead. Hestras liners break down and stop being soft and fuzzy inside. I want it to feel like awesome all the time.

On this note, what do you guys do to keep leather gloves waterproof? I bought a set of Watson North of 49 Gloves (see below) because I was told the leather palms would take the abuse. But these gloves attract water like they're going out of style!!! They're usually soaked by the end of the day.

I tried spray on silicone, thinking I need to do some sort of rub in leather waterproofing. Maybe mink oil?

I've used Nikwax waterproofing wax for leather on my gloves and Haven't had any issues. Stuff works great.

in my shopping, that's what most of the reviewers seem to recommend as well, Waterproofing wax.
