FIRST IMPRESSIONS: We know that it’s not ALL about colorways when it comes to your outerwear, but let’s be honest, what’s the first thing you notice when you’re in the market for a particular item? Whether you’re as into the bright pink/orange combo as we are or you don’t care for it one bit, these new Hestra gloves are gonna grab your attention. With leather on the outside and a super soft lining, there’s really nothing we don’t like about these. So we’re really forcing it when we say that we wish the connector to keep gloves stored together was more pliable.

FAVORITE FEATURES: You really can’t beat the signature Hestra handcuff, because who doesn’t take their gloves/mittens on and off constantly throughout the day? The risk of glove loss is basically non-existent. The simple cuff adjust is easy to open and close, even with the gloves on, the decent dexterity of which will only enhance as the soft leather breaks in. If you’re not trying these gloves on at the store, it’s worth it to find an online sizing guide and do a quick measurement as the fit is rather snug. Padding and stitching throughout only add to the style and performance of this great glove.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: A new women’s-specific all leather model with a fun, freeride look and bright colors to match any riding ensemble. Available in both a glove and mitten design, it offers knuckle and finger padding with warm, fiberfill insulation and plenty of dexterity. Has an extended neoprene cuff with velcro closure and Hestra handcuffs to keep them secured to your wrists.
