    Still waiting for delivery

    30 days after ordering I am still awaiting delivery. The tracking link shows they are in a depot somewhere and when I contacted Vallerett to cancel the order there was a mention that they were waiting for someone to pay customs duty. Not sure if there was a missed communication somewhere but something went wrong. Order in plenty of time for any trips you might need them for!

    Amazing winter gloves!

    Absolutely stunning gloves for deep winter. In my personal view, better than Skadi Zipper Mitts. The zip is better placed and more practical to use. The gauntlet cuffs are very long and roomy so they protect your wrists well with no issues to drag it over your jacket sleeves. Top shelf product!

    Hi Jarno,
    Thank you for your review! We're so happy you love our Alta Arctic Mitt Photography Glove! We hope you enjoy using them this winter!

    large and warm

    I suffer from Reynauds so easily get very cold fingers which are then useless. This mitt which goes over my gloves is great and takes heaters inside without trouble and solves the issue

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you for your review of the Alta Arctic Mitt. We're happy to hear they are keeping you toasty and warm over your gloves :)

    New purchase, yet to use.

    Due to a currently warm winter, I have yet to use the mitts in the wild. I need them since my hands have very poor circulation such that hand warmers do not help. The mitts fit comfortably over my Tinden gloves and the magnets hold as intended, while the gauntlet over cuffs are easy to close. They are comfortable and certainly feel extremely warm inside our chilly house.

    Hi Allan,
    Thanks for your review.
    We hope the new Mitts will keep you toasty and warm during your future photography adventures!

    About two weeks ago I had the opportunity to use my new gloves while removing about 14 inches of snow from my property in 14-degree weather. Having to hold the metal handles of the snowblower in those temperatures usually leave my hands cold and numb even with hand warmers. The Alta arctic mitts over my gloves worked out so well, that at one point I had on only the liners with the over-mitt. Having the harness also allowed me to remove the gloves and let them hang instead of trying to hold them under an arm or between my legs while doing other things. I can’t wait to actually get out to do photography with them.

    Hi Mark,
    Happy to hear you're enjoying the new Arctic Mitts!
    Hope you will enjoy them during your photography adventures :)
    Happy winter shooting!
