To say Hestra knows just a thing or two about gloves and mittens would be an underhanded statement. Not only have they been designing and manufacturing top quality leather freeride and alpine gloves for 80 years, but they still have their headquarters in the town of Hestra, Sweden where the average winter temperature falls well below freezing, meaning good gloves are a necessity. What’s more, in 2019 Sweden was ranked as one of the top 10 happiest countries in the world. Coincidence? We don’t think so. Happy hands = happy people.
Started in 1936 by Martin Magnusson & Co., Hestra is still a family-owned business with the third generation of Magnusson’s running the company today, and we assume that when they aren’t busy making the best ski gloves on the market, they’re busy testing them on the slopes. Hestra didn’t stop at skiing and snowboarding gloves either, their line also includes premium leather dress gloves, so that you can stay toasty, look great, and drive fast all at the same time. Whether you need warm winter gloves for on the snow activities, want gloves that look great, or just want to be happy like the Swedish, Hestra has what you’re looking for.
