FIND YOUR SIZE:
Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please consider to go a size up.
As we learn more and more about gloves we also learn that all hands are different. Some people have long skinny fingers and slim wrists, others have wide hands with short fingers.
Our gloves wont fit all even with the right measurements from the sizing chart – but we try!
For many, the best option will be to go up a size if your measurements are in between sizes.
If you are between sizes or if your hands do not fit into the measurements on our sizing chart, we recommend prioritizing the fit for the girth measurement. The girth is the most important measurement and if the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.
If you’re considering pairing a liner glove with your photography gloves, we recommend choosing the same size liner as photography glove. We designed our liners to be thin and fit inside of our photography gloves so we recommend your normal size in liners. There are two exceptions to this:
Exception #1: If you are at the very end of the ratio size in the sizing chart, e.g. 1 mm from being a size Large, then we advise going up a glove size if you plan to often wear the liner with the gloves.
Exception #2: If your personal preference is to wear fairly loose gloves, then you should also go up a size when adding a liner. We don't recommend this as you will compromise dexterity with loose gloves and our priority is best possible camera feel. But you know best what you like!
House tip: Make sure to choose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
The Arctic is no joke, and this glove takes your warmth seriously.
Like a sleeping bag for your hand, the (UNISEX) Alta Over-Mitt slips over any of the Vallerret gloves models adding that extra warmth and keeping your hands heated when you need it most.
Inspired by the Vallerret founders’ days dog mushing in the arctic, you too can stay toasty warm in the harshest of winter environments whilst capturing your images.
**PLEASE NOTE**: Inner Gloves are NOT included.
The Alta Over-Mitt is designed for Arctic Winter conditions.

Mild day, Pow day or Arctic Winter conditions? Vallerret has you covered!
I travel a bit and have recently returned from Dovrefjell in Norway photographing the Musk Oxen. Needless to say, there is a lot of waiting around and sitting still.
The temperatures weren't too excess but having the Alta mitt to hand made it simple to put off and off keeping my hands super warm. A practical design that seems it will last a very long time with the premium material.
I highly rate these gloves, they will certainly be coming with me when I venture back out in the colder climates.
I gave this glove to my son who loves winter photography but has issues with Raynauds. While he won't always need these gloves, when it is cold enough (Yellowstone in the winter), they will be a lifesaver. He loves them
Totally worked in -20F WCFactor, Boothbay Harbor, Maine, USA Saturday 1/15/22 photographing the wandering Steller’s Sea Eagle for 3.5hrs.
Thanks for letting us keep your hands warm in those crazy sub-zero temps!
Have a great winter and thanks for your support.

I'm looking forward to trying out the new gloves; haven't had a chance yet. The merino wool liner & the Alta Over Mitt both are a perfect fit for me.
The workmanship looks like it will hold up to some rugged conditions.
The mit is fine. Zipper for opening in palm works well.
But, in order to use the mit for photography, you get you 4 fingers and thumb through the opening this cramps the use of your thumb.
This problem could be easily solved by having velcro sealed slits with flaps cut over the thumb.
