Just got these a couple weeks ago. Owned the Hestra Helis for several years and these gloves in my opinion are a great improvement. Got the Helis and Morrisons in size 9, and the Morrisons feel a little more bulky and snug, but maybe they will break/pack in after a year or so. But this bulk I think comes from the added insulation, which makes the Morrisons warmer. The reverse stitching is an awesome feature, the gloves are extremely comfortable, you don't want to take these things off. Some previous reviews complained of a weak zipper, this has changed in this year's version: the zippers are robust, and mine have worked so far with no breaks. While these are an under-the-cuff glove, the cuff is large (still have to work a little to get the wrists of my jacket over them), although definitely not a gauntlet. There is also more padding on the back of the hands and fingers than the pictures make out, you really feel like your hands are protected. Definitely use the provided wax upon receiving these gloves. All in all, I think these gloves are amazing, and a definite upgrade on the Helis.
