The HESTRA GLOVE SYSTEM is based on the layering principle – the idea of wearing many different functional pieces of clothing. By using layers of gloves, you can regulate the temperature according to the weather conditions and your activity level.
1) Next to your skin, wear a liner that carries away moisture and creates a thin, warming layer of air around the skin. You should keep it on to avoid contact with cold surfaces when performing tasks that require finger dexterity.A thin liner worn inside a glove increases heat by about 20 percent.
2) The base glove is the one you use most frequently. It keeps your hands warm in normal cold conditions, wicks away the moisture and provides protection against wind and moisture. The base glove is available with a fixed or removable liner. Having a removable liner makes it easier to regulate the temperature.
3) Shell Gloves are a layer of added protection that you pull on when it’s biting cold, wet or if you’re standing still for prolonged periods. This creates another layer of air that insulates against the cold. With a liner and shell glove, insulation increases by approximately 50 percent compared to only wearing a base glove.Shell Gloves should be generous enough to leave room for a large volume of insulating air.
