The Hestra Army Leather Heli Ski 3 Finger was originally created for ski guides in western Canada who needed a reliable and warm glove for long days out in the wilderness. Leather since the get go has always been super durable, and it still is today as well as providing exceptional feel and grip for your ski pole. Its unlike another material for its dexterity and great over all feel. The 3-finger model is for those looking for more warmth but who still need the dexterity of a glove for working long hours out in the cold like guides or ski patrollers. We love the liner that can be taken out to dry that creates an additional layer of warmth and gives the 3-finge glove the ability to adapt to different temperatures levels, especially if it starts getting to warm. If you are looking for a classic, durable glove that has all of the attention to details and craftmanship a fine mitten should have, then the Hestra Army Leather Heli Ski 3 Finger is your best ski companion.
