Hestra Alpine Pro Narvik Wool Terry Gloves Review – Best Men’s Long Cuff Ski Gloves
From days spent on slopes skiing and snowboarding to frigid winter work days, Hestra’s Narvik Wool Terry gloves are my go-to choice.
I’ve owned countless ski gloves over the years, but when it comes Hestra, their gloves are simply put, out of this world!
I finally had a chance to try on a pair of their Narvik Wool Terry long cuff ski gloves from their Alpine Pro line and wow, was I beyond impressed.

Hestra Alpine Pro Narvik Wool Terry Gloves Review
Of course, the above high-quality materials don’t just stop there. On the interior Hestra has decided to include a luxuriously soft and warm wool terry lining. This 100% wool, knitted, hard wearing material can bind gigantic amounts of air; up to 80%. Best of all, it’s removable and dries quickly, making soggy and wet hands a thing of the past.
Other features I personally really like include the Hestra Handcuff, which keeps your gloves locked onto your wrist. The hook and loop cuff works wonder and makes acquiring the perfect fit a breeze. For added protection against the elements, the drawcord gauntlet is something I’ve come to highly appreciate. Lastly, there’s a nice carabiner attachment system included on the Hestra Narvik Wool Terry gloves.
Overall, the Alpine Pro Narvik Wool Terry gloves are some of my favorite long cuff ski gloves out there. The construction quality is remarkable and the materials are as good as it gets. The warmth factor is top notch while breathability keeps the hands comfortable. In ice cold temps and brutal winter conditions, these are the only gloves I want on my hands.
For keeping your Hestra Narvik Wool Terry gloves in top condition, applying their Original Leather Balm will do the trick. The balm works wonders for restoring natural moisture back to leather while prolonging life and increasing suppleness alongside water repellency.
