I was finally able to use these for an intimate, outdoor, winter wedding this past weekend and they were amazing! It was 17F outside and they did the trick. The liners are obviously not super warm on their own (no liner ever is in that cold of weather), so while they were exposed, my fingers got pretty cold but being able to tuck them back in for a quick warm up was amazing. The videographer was quite jealous. ;) My thumbs seem to be a bit shorter than the measurements for the size that fits me best, so that part feels a little unwieldy when they're fully capped, but not so much that I feel entirely restricted by it. For much colder weather, my naturally frigid and poorly circulated extremeties would need something more heavy duty (like the over mitt they offer). All in all, an excellent purchase for what I need them for!
I received a pair of Ipsoot gloves and the thumb hole on the right glove was too small. I contacted customer service and they immediately sent a new pair which is perfect. In addition to working well when doing photography they are also the warmest gloves I have had.
When I recieved the gloves I first was not quite sure if I hadn't bought then a size too small after all. However, after having used them during a holiday in Iceland, I am extremely happy with my choice and the gloves. They kept my fingers very worm, even with rather strong cold wind, and were perfect for using the camera in this weather. The only complaint I have is the strength of the magnets which are not strong enough and do not keept the fingtips stored away (therefore only 4 stars). However, it is possible to work well with the gloves without this feature.
These gloves are a photographers friend, they allow complete access to all the cameras controls where regular gloves impede the dexterity needed to manipulate all the dials and buttons on one's camera. Would recommend these for the serious photographer shooting in colder climates.
Had my Vallerret gloves for Christmas but finally got to test them on a recent visit to Krakow in Poland. Temperature down to -2. My hands were always warm in my new gloves and the flip back fingers and thumbs make it so easy to operate my D850 without getting cold hands. Excellent product.
Received quickly. Seems very good I try It in a few weeks.
I haven’t had a chance to take the gloves out yet but next month I will be testing them out in Death Valley and the Sierra Nevada’s. They look and feel well made.
Perfect product. Maybe I got the wrong size because they don't fit perfectly. Anyway I feel satisfied.
Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Glove
These gloves are excellent for their intended use with some minor flaws.
The seam on the inside of the glove that attaches the elastic cuff to the glove had some exposed material that was abrasive. I had to melt it with a lighter to make it smoother. The magnets that are supposed to hold the finger tips open barely work. Other than that, these gloves are very well made, warm, and comfortable. I spent several hours searching the net and these are the best that I could find. They’re expensive but allow me to work in cold weather without exposing my entire hand. The tactile gloves for a touch screen work but they’re not as warm as these. Good work Valleret!
I just bought a pair of the Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Gloves from London Drugs and like them very much. With my limited experience with them I would consider "Mid Winter" to be -10C, if you are shooting in colder weather go with the Ipsoot Photography Gloves, which are rated as "Deep Winter" gloves.
These gloves are amazing. They are comfortable, warm and beautiful! Opted for the large size as I was just on the edge of the size for length. The size is perfect and I’m so happy with them. Nice to still be able to control camera, phone or any other device with still keeping rest of hand and fingers toasty!
The gloves are well made from what I can see so far but time will tell,
The only complaint I have is the metal Vallerret badge that sits on the back of your hand when wearing the gloves if it was a embroidered badge it would be 100% better.
If Vallerret come out with a V 3.0 with my idea of an embroidered badge then I would love a free upgrade please 😉 overall I’m happy with the gloves.
Kind Regards Richard
Effortless purchasing, perfect fit, very warm. They are super handy for outdoor photography session. Expectations fully met, highly recommended! I RECEIVED FAST DELIVERY TODAY ONLY 4 DAYS TO UK SUPER.
Look great and fit snugly.
Will send review when I've had a chance to wear them out there.
It is a good start if you want to improve your photography! Also Carl is a fun guy to listen to and I really got some tips to improve. The full manual shoot was pretty cool to, lots of tips and tricks in it!
These are now my Go To Gloves! Warm, well fitted, the fold away finger tips are perfect! Such a great idea, I don't know why every glove maker isn't doing this!
I'd already placed a second order for some of the EVEN warmer ones :)
Also the size exchange program is amazing, the customer service has been perfect! I requested a change in size, and they are already on the way, before I've sent them back! Super efficient!
I'd 100% recommend these gloves!
Received the gloves in perfect condition week before Christmas. Visited my daughter in Northern Ontario for Christmas holidays where it was -15c, which is very cold. The gloves performed admirably with no concerns. Very pleased with the quality, craftmanship and materials that make up these gloves. Would recommend inner liners for the extreme cold days. Happy with this purchase.
Good but for the price I expected better design and quality.
The cuffs are too short, the magnets are weak.
The gloves arrived very quickly unfortunately I took a size too small. Vallerret customer service sent me back a new pair in my size before I even sent back the ones I had received. The gloves look great, thank you very much for your trust and speed!
Ordered these gloves for my wife. The gloves fit her hands okay, but the index finger holes were too tight causing discomfort. I have returned the gloves and re-ordered Markhof Pro 2.0s to replace them.
