In Our Opinion

The Hestra size chart is accurate and reliable. Please use the measurements on the size guide rather than assuming which size normally fits you. Two things to consider regarding size and measurement when buying Hestra glove are the circumference and length. We are confident in the fit of Hestra gloves because:

  • We have tried the gloves on ourselves, in a full range of models and sizes.
  • We monitor customer returns.
  • We see customers wearing the gloves in our shops
  • We have been selling them for 30 years. 
  • If you are concerned about it being too small, always go a size up being bigger will be warmer due to larger airspace.

How to Measure Your Hand Circumference and Length

Hand Circumference
  • With a soft tape measure, measure all the way around your hand 2cm above the thumb. 
  • Measure fairly loosely, not pulling the tape measure too tight.
Hand Length
  • With a soft tape measure, measure from the tip of the middle finger to the wrist
  • Add an extra 5mm onto this measurement to allow for a comfortable fit

      Warmth Rating

      Staying Warm

      In general, padded jackets are warmer but less versatile than shell jackets, which have little or no insulating material.

      The story goes that natural down insulation is less bulky than synthetic padding but loses its thermal properties when it's wet, whereas synthetic insulation works better when wet but tends to be more bulky and not as easy to compress into a small package. However, newer forms of synthetic padding are less bulky and more compressible, mimicking down, and may even be stretchy and breathable.

       There are two types of scenarios when a skier purchases a jacket. 

      Skier one: Likes to ski moderately to hard and can get warm when doing this. 

      We recommend either a waterproof and breathable shell, paired with an insulation jacket. This allows you to stay warm when its a cold day. Or shed the insulation jacket on a warm day to utilise the light properties of a shell jacket.

      Pros: You have a second functioning jacket which you can walk around town with or use a light travel jacket. 

      Brand suggestions:

      • Peak Performance 
      • Black Yak
      • J.lindeberg

      Cons: Purchasing a shell outer jacket and and insulation jacket can put some people off.  

      Skier two: Can ski comfortably around doesn't like to push to hard and wants to wear the jacket to Apres ski. 

      We recommend a Down or Primaloft insulated jacket. These provide the highest level of warmth around your vital organs. 

      Pros: Warm and stylish jackets 

      Cons: You can get to warm depending where you ski.

      Brand Suggestions:

      All brands make these jackets just look for an insulated jacket.

      water proofing

      Let's talk waterproofing and how the scale works.

      Waterproofing is measured in numbers; 20k for example. The number refers to millimeters and the amount of pressure the fabric can stand before water starts to leak through. The easiest way to paint the picture is if you imagine 20 000 millimeter hollow tube. Let's now take that tube and place it on a 20 k fabric. If we then fill it up with water, the fabric will not let any water pass through. If this would have been a 15 k fabric though, you can probably imagine what would have happened instead? This is what the number means, but that's not how a jacket is used.

      So, what does different numbers means to you and how to use our 1-5 scale? 

      1: 3000mm ( Water Resistant )

      Entry level - 3000mm is still considered waterproof but won't last for more than light rain.

      2: 5000mm ( Snow Proof )

      If you ride in cold and clear conditions, you can get away with this level. We don't recommend wearing this when the bad weather hits (unless you like being cold and wet).

      3: 10 000mm ( Waterproof )

      Wear this is you like long days on the mountain, even when there's bad weather. 10k is a good level.

      4: 15 000mm ( Wateproof )

      Rain and wet snow don't stand a chance with this. If you live in wetter climates (Australia we're looking at you) 15k is a good, if not great choice. It takes a lot to pass through the membrane.

      5: 20 000k and up, also known as (Keep You Dry In Your Own Shower k)

      If you enjoy the outdoors, skiing backcountry or need to be prepared for everything situation, you should be looking at 20k and up for waterproofness and breathability. You'll thank us later.
