Hestra Gloves was formed in 1936 in Hestra, Sweden to provide gloves for lumberjacks who needed wear-resistant, durable gloves. Soon after that, as the sport of skiing became more popular, they turned their focus to creating gloves for warmth, and water resistance as well as durability. Hestra Gloves still designs and tests their gloves in Sweden.

Hestra Gloves are sold through specialty ski and sporting goods stores throughout the U.S. For the retailer closest to you, or to receive a catalog, contact Melanie Steinberg at Hestra Gloves, 621 Corporate Circle, Suite F, Golden, CO 80401.
