So I put my Hestra gloves through the ringer this week with all this wet New England snow. I have to say I’m not that impressed. I used the leather balm that came with the gloves and it didn’t seem to work at all. Since its so hot I’m only using the outers and water is soaking in. Granted condition are bad at best but I was hoping for better results.
My guess is you need to apply balm every evening or go ride powder! We’re visiting the Burton R+D facility tomorrow afternoon and if I see anything that peaks my interest in Gore Tex the Hestra’s may end up on e-bay.
