Estaba buscando unos guantes para proteger mis manos del frío y tras realizar varias compras sin éxito, por fin he dado con unos que cumplen con mis expectativas.
1.index fingers on my gloves don't stay open
2. I wish there is a clip to put gloves together , so i don't loose one when the other not being used.
Having bought my Vallerret gloves a year ago, I have been entirely satisfied with the performance, fully meeting the advertising statements.
I wanted to avoid cold finger tips, so bought the glove liners. Once again, I noticed the difference. Furthermore, being able to use a touchscreen without removing my gloves is a real bonus.
They seem great so far... haven’t been put to true test however as we haven’t thru a cold season with the yet
Here’s my initial impression without using them: my hands are small and measured for Medium but those are too tight and fit my wife better. The large allow me to make a fist but no way could I add liners. When I hold the Medium and Large against each other, I cannot discern any more than maybe a millimeter of difference in length of the fingers. I decided to keep both pairs to try them in Antarctica in December.
I ordered my gloves at around 11pm at night. The following day they arrived in the mail at 2pm. That's 15 hours from payment to receiving the package?!♥♥
I tested them quickly and they do seem kind of "bulky and restricts movement" like the other review says. I think if you wear them, over time they will become
more flexible. I'm certainly keeping them. I chose size XS and my hand measures 17,5 x 16,5 cm, so it's the maximum allowed size for XS. If your hands are
even 1mm bigger than mine, go for size S. Trust me on that.
The magnets are seriously strong. Even with all the layers of fabric, they won't separate on their own. The compartment on the top of each hand is about the
size of a CF card. I don't personally carry cards with me because I rarely run out of space, but I can fit an extra pair of foam earbuds in there. In case I lose one.
I'll test these out in a couple days. It will be around 8 degrees and I'll be outside for an entire day. Will update the review with pictures if that's possible.
The gloves are certainly warm, but there are 3 things wrong with the gloves. The magnets designed to hold the finger flaps open do not work; the small size glove is very small and very bulky for handling a camera and almost sized just for a child; and the finger flaps don't close up completely after being open.
Just received my gloves and they look like quality gloves. I bought it with a Marino wool liner and I think it would be great for my upcoming trip to Eastern Sierra.
I’ve lived with my Markhof Pro’s now on a few early morning winter shoots where temps were around 2 degrees. I think there’s always going to be a trade off between warmth & how dexterous your finger movement is, but I think you can only have both if you also buy the under gloves with these. They are simply not warm enough on their own for when conditions approach zero or below so just be aware of that. I’m therefore giving them 3 stars on that basis, that the extra cost involved can make this combo an expensive proposition.
I first ordered the Markhof Pro - size M but notice it was too small specially the width of the slots for finger tips. Try to change for L size but no longer available as you are upgrading the model and version 2 will not be available on time for my trip. As I am heading to Iceland 1st week October decided to buy the Ipsoot - L - Size hopping it was larger. Unfortunately not and the slots for fingers tips are still too narrow and hard to move the fingers in and out.
Hope it will not tear apart with the in and out movement of fingers..
Probably this is due my wide fingers tips but it will be an opportunity for improvement to increase the slot width to get a better wearability.
Vallerret Photography Glove Is the glove I have always wanted, which allows me to operate my camera freely in cold weather. I can’t find any other glove which is better than Valleret Photography Glove. It is well-made and easy to take on and off, and the fingers can move flexibly while keeping warm. It will accompany me through out my winter photography.
These are the best gloves i’ve ever used for photography and i’ve just spent two weeks in the Arctic using them (temperatures 0-4°C without wind chill). My hands were kept warm (except for the exposed finger tip and thumb of course) and i was able to use all my cameras functions despite some of the buttons being really small (mirror less camera system).
The only thing i’d change about these gloves is the magnets on the finger/thumb that hold the open ends back (to exposure your forefinger and thumb) could be stronger, they didn’t always work that well.
I would recommend these gloves strongly and actually did to a couple of people who asked me about them on my recent trip.
This is the best glove I think I've ever seen especially for photography but also works great for using my phone and texting. The gloves are warm and water resistant, so I can take pictures in winter cold a whole day comfortably. There is removable finger tips with little magnets to hold them back, work reasonably well and allow full control for my camera and the fingers and palm have excellent grip. These gloves are exactly what I expected from a long time ago, even better than I expected. I highly recommended these gloves for anyone especially for photography or for daily use in cold environment.
I like these gloves, lightweight but warm. I like the touch fingers to handle the camera.
I confess, I won't be wearing the gloves myself - they are a present. They look great to me! And if the quality is as good as the efficiency of the admin, delivery and communications, then I'm sure it will be top class!
It‘s been a long jearney until I found the best fitting and best functional gloves for my photography work. Don‘t look anyfurther.
The magnets are not strong enough, they don't hold the flip-backs to stay in place. Otherwise good, comfortable.
Fits well after some use! Good to work buttons on cameras really well. If it does get really cold, make sure to have an extra glove just to keep warm over a longer period.. The Ipsoot I really just use while operating the camera.
Perfect gloves for backcountry-sport-photography. Tested at -11°C. Great feeling.
Best gloves I've ever owned, perfect fit for a pro photographer. I won't look anywhere else. Period. ;)
Giving 5* although only worn a few times but early impression is positive. Good comfortable warm fit, L size was a good choice for me as it allows for a marino wool liner glove. Palm features gave good grip of the camera. Looking forward to using gloves.
