The Hestra Sarna glove is a great glove for the wintertime but also can be worn as a bit more of an intermediate glove. The Elk leather which has been used for these gloves has a nice texture and it is both subtle and strong. The gloves are lined with a thin fleece. All of which result in a great looking, very comfortable pear of gloves. Despite the fact that guys generally get swamped in gloves, sock, ties and alike, this could very well be the one pair of gloves you will really need.
- Elk leather from Sweden and Finland made in Hestra’s own factory
- Fleece lined for extra comfort, warmth and moisture absorption. Fleece dries quickly
- The pique finishing around the wrist closes off the glove comfortably and it looks great too
The rich history of the Hestra brand goes back four centuries and starts in 1936 in the Swedish province of Småland. This is where Martin Magnusson and his family lives and where he starts making gloves for the local lumberjacks. When a skiing slope opens in 1937 Magnusson starts making gloves that cater for the rapidly growing skiing community in Sweden. The Swedes discover skiing as a national past time and the business grows fast. Hestra really makes a name for itself in the 1960s as the brand you need to have when skiing. Since than two generations Magnusson’s have been responsible for growing the company further, never letting down on their very high quality standards till today.
