    Are you just after the look or is there something else specifically about that old Seth?

    I work for the Canadian distributor. I can't get anything made but I can point you towards a current glove that's going to be pretty much the same.

    Mine are reaching the end of their life and I don't see anything out there that I want. I like how they are low profile with a semi short cuff. Not too puffy either with good dexterity. Bought a pair of Oyukis last year and I dont really dig them. So I want my old ones. Should have bought 2 pairs back in the day.

    Right now vertical cut free rides and Seth gloves are very hard to come by in size 10, especially at a discount. Maybe, I will have to check out the c. zone glove this year

    Was hoping there was someone that had a secret stash they wanted to sell or Hestra has a warehouse full of them.

    Have loved my Seth gloves for ten years of worshipped use. Most expensive glove I would have ever considered at the time. But now knowing theyd last for ten years makes it worth it. Mine are packing out and looking for replacement too. Thinking the vertical cut. Part I like the most is the low pro cuff but also want something that can slip on off easily without straps (for kid duties the next couple seasons).

    S&C has small sizes only, but if you are a 6 or 7 then you are in luck

    That's my only complaint about my FTP sx's: if my hands are at all wet (storm day), they are almost impossible to get back on. Otherwise: great gloves, for a decent price.

    Anyone know how the racing model on SAC compares to the seth's? They look nearly identical in style to the seth's I have, just without their "czone". Are they comparible in warmth? If so I may give them a shot.

    Agree, too bad they aren't making them anymore. Best glove ever when you could get them on sale. Not sure I'd drop $200 on them though.

    That never happened with these. Wonder if there are any companies that recondition gloves..... That would be nice

    That glove is over a decade out of production now...so you're not going to find a pair.

    A touch more insulation in them but check out the Couloir.

    Without the CZone but about the same warmth level as the old original Seth is the Ergo Grip Incline.

    Almost no insulation but amazing feel is the Ergo Grip Active.

    Those were my go to for about 3 or 4 years. Miss those gloves. I need to add a mitt to the quiver this year.

    I've never experienced that (I hate when that happens too). Since I bought mine, they've come out with a removable liner. I wonder if those are the problematic ones?

    Mine have the removable liner. And the black and whit logo - so they're pretty recent. The inside of the liner just gets incredibly "sticky" vs wet hands.

    Looks like only a few models have fixed liners these days.

    I have these gloves, and tend to think they're kinda meh. Strap is always flopping due to bad velcro, not warm enough for me during winter. My pair is probably not in measurably better condition than yours, but PM if interested.

    I thought I was the only one that thought this. At least their prices aren't outrageous.

    The gloves aren't tops in any categories but I am attached to them. My hands got cold and sometimes wet on multiple occasions but I still loved them. I tend to keep gear (wearing apparel) for a long time. Thanks for the offer but wearing used gloves to me is just...... nah.

    Posted this and was hoping someone from Hestra was like you know what, we have a fucking ton of these in storage in a size 9 er.

    Couldn't find any kind of deal on Freeride Vertical Cut in my size, so I bought a pair of Kinko all leather. I forgot just how schweet Kinko's gloves are. At least, now I won't mind if I lose my gloves

    They will be. Right now, my old freerides feel as soft as lambskin, while the newly sealed Kinkos do not.

    So I went with the black diamond spark pro. They are okay but just very bulky feeling. Like wearing pillows on my hands. Hestras were not bulky and I think that's going to be hard to find. The search will continue......
