haestra glovesJanuary 21, 2013 – Golden, Colo. – For the 2013-2014 season Hestra has added new models to its Mountaineering and Alpine Pro collections, making the product line more comprehensive than ever before. Some highlights of the new additions include the Ergo Grip OutDry Glove in the Mountaineering collection and the new Fall Line Collection in Alpine Pro.
“Hestra’s new products have us excited to share the line at the upcoming tradeshows this winter,” said Erin Tulley, Marketing Coordinator. “Our new Ergo Grip OutDry gloves really push the envelope with innovative construction and new technology to offer some of the best-fitting, durable gloves available for alpine mountaineers and outdoorsman. The new Fall Line collection is proving to be an early favorite; it includes some of our most comfortable-fitting gloves with an all-leather design in new, natural colorways.”

Ergo Grip OutDry Long
Hestra’s most innovative and technical mountaineering glove combines Ergo Grip construction with an OutDry waterproof/breathable laminate for unbeatable dexterity and durability. This glove features strong army goat leather on the palm, and kangaroo leather reinforcements in high-abrasion areas. Kangaroo leather is extremely durable and moderately heat-resistant to protect against abrasion from ropes and rocks. The OutDry waterproof/breathable laminate uses much less space inside the glove shell than a typical membrane, allowing for a closer fit and grip with superior dexterity. This glove is ideal for backcountry ski and mountaineering expeditions that require exceptional dexterity and durability.

Also available in a short cuff model.

Fall Line Collection
New for the 13-14 season, the Fall Line glove is one of Hestra’s best-fitting snowsports models ever. This glove is made of all leather with outseam construction for superior pole grip and comfort. It offers warmth, dexterity, and on-mountain style with natural leather colorways to match any riding ensemble. The Fall Line glove is a durable accessory that with the right care will remain a favorite for many years, also available in a 3-finger and mitt design.
