This model is named after one of Sweden’s leading survival experts, Lars Fält, who was also involved in the development of the glove. A durable glove made entirely of leather with removable wool terry cloth/wool pile liner. Can also be combined with other liners. With the right care, it can remain a favourite for many years.
The glove of choice for many handling sled dogs, doing manual work on Expeditions or just working in the cold.

Hestra Kebnekaise wool mitts
Hestra Kebnekaise wool mitts are still the choice for winter sports in Scandinavia. They are simply a timeless piece of kit that work as well today as they did for the early polar explorers and Mountaineers. The wool mitts provide excellent warmth, and can be boosted when coupled with a thin liner. Adding an outer waterproof shell mitt completes the system if you need protection from cold wind and/or rain/snow. This layering principal works as well as it does for the rest of your body.
Mitts have an advantage over gloves in that they trap more air between the fingers, and are therefore warmer. On our Arctic Expedition training course last year, all the students switched to these mitts having tested them against what they brought!
Material: 100% felted wool
