Hestra has been producing some of the best cold-weather handwear for over 70 years. The Hestra Army Leather Spring is part of brand's Freeride collection and as the name implies, is targeted for the warmer spring and pre-season skiing conditions.
Hestra has made the glove's outer layer on the palm and fingers with their highly durable Army Leather. The base of the thumb and backside of the glove consists of a softshell material that Hestra touts as being waterproof and windproof. The lining of the glove is lined with a waterproof insert.
The lightweight of the Army Leather Spring is most notable the first time they slide onto your hands. The low weight and snugger fit give better overall performance than a heavier glove. The cuffs are adjustable to ensure a contoured fit around your wrists. The contoured cuffs slide easily under your jacket cuffs even for an athletically fitting jacket.
The Hestra Army Leather Spring delivered surprising temperature management even when swooshing at warmer temperatures. The gloves wick moisture rapidly to ensure that they are not getting too sweaty when the temperatures are in the 40's (Fahrenheit). The softshell material used on a portion of the glove gives it turbo breathability and is great for quickly wiping your goggles off during your run. As advertised, the Army Leather Spring kept out the wind and moisture.
Just like any leather-made apparel, the Army Leather Spring does take some maintenance. If leather treatment is not applied, they will live a short life. Give them some leather love and they will last the grind for snowy seasons to come.
The Hestra Army Leather Spring glove brings you a well-performing handwear for warmer winter temperatures. Treat them with some TLC, and they will be as dependable as the Hestra name. They are available in 2 color schemes – black and grey/off white. The Army Leather Spring gloves retail for $80 and carry Hestra's limited lifetime warranty.
