COVID-19 Preventions and Updates

Updated October 17th, 2020.

During these unusual circumstances, we are doing our best to continue to provide premium winter photography gloves to photographers all around the world. While our operations at Vallerret continue as normal, we do rely on our fulfillment centers for shipping and will update this information as the ongoing Covid-19 situation evolves. 

The health of our employees and the employees of our fulfillment center is our primary concern.

Our warehouses practice regularly sanitation and are providing proper training for the employees about the virus including best methods of prevention.

As our shipping centers have been deemed as an "essential service", they remain open and operating with full staff.

We know it isn't ideal, but due to the current situation we often see that packages are backed up in the queue to enter the country of the destination. In some extreme cases delivery, even for short distances can be delayed up to several weeks.  

North America Shipping Center Update:

Our US shipping center is receiving high order volumes and with the additional sanitation and handling measures they are taking to protect their staff and customers, they are experiencing processing delays of 2-3 working days. 
  • Your order will be shipped 1-4 working days from order date.
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has announced delays for Priority Mail and First-Class Package Service.
  • First Class Package Service with 2-day and 3-day service commitments will extend to 3 and 4 days, respectively.

This may affect estimated delivery time of your order and we thank you for your patience.

    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!

     

    What size should I get if I'm between sizes?

    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.

     

    Should I size up for my liner 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.
