Great design!

These gloves give you the benefits of both worlds: warmth from the mittens and ease of use from the gloves. Well constructed and warm these gloves are great for mild winter conditions. I'm not sure they would be warm enough for my typically cold hands in intense cold (below 15° F or so). Worth a purchase!

First time ever for photography gloves

These are awesome. The grip, the warmth, and of course the two finger covers that allow camera setting adjustments. Very well thought out!

Thrilled you love the design and warmth of Markhof Pro 2.0 gloves Winston :D Happy winter shooting!

Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Glove

Good Fit, a little tight

Would recommend getting a size up from what you expect. I ordered a small based on the measurements, but when i put the gloves on, the circulation to my fingers was being cut off. Exchanged for a larger size which was pretty easy no hassle involved.

Happy to help and happy you like the gloves overall :) Happy winter shooting!

Nice gloves. But could be even better.

I like these gloves overall, but they could be even better. First, offer them in black as well. Second, better stitching and quality control needed. The stitching on the fingers is inconsistent and it shows. This is typical on most gloves these days. Be better than most. Third, use an adjuster or a second snap for the strap.

Bruce, thanks a lot for taking the time to leave the review. We're constantly working on improvements, so your feedback is greatly appreciated! If you'd want to address this issue with our customer support, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@photographygloves.com Happy winter shooting :)

Impressive.

Due to Covid restrictions I have not been able to put these gloves to use, having said that I have tried them on and they feel really well made and super comfy.

Great gloves. Warm and functional!

After few times wearing them I'm very happy with the product. The intention is to test the gloves more closely in the near future and after that I'm going to write an article for Sickman blog.

Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Glove

First pair!

This are my first pair of photography gloves, and the fit is amazing. I’ve only been able to use them a few times because the weather has been getting milder in my part of the world. The fit is snug and unobtrusive, plus very stylish. I’m very happy with my purchase!

Great Gloves!

They really hit the spot, many thx!

Fantastic to hear that Robert :D Happy winter shooting!

Great idea, but weak fabric

After first wearing them just for 15 min, appeared gaps between middle and ring fingers on both hands. Second attempt was to use them as liners with Markhof Pro 2.0 and they teared on big fingers both hands just from usage once. It was quite strange, point fingers in Markhof have tightly holes for fingers, but thumbs have fluently holes. I repaired them and tried to use with city leather gloves, but after several more wearing appeared one more hole on middle finger. It's pity, gloves were so nice at first look, but not affordable for real life.
Gloves "suitable" for temperatures about +10C (maybe +5+6C without any wind) or as liners for another gloves. Touch inserts quite good in comparison with touristic gloves, which I tried, but in real life we tap not by center of finger and this causes some difficulties. Almost not possible to type text from screen keyboard, but possible to slowly find contact or open app.

Markhof Pro 2.0

The gloves took about 2 weeks to arrive, which wasn't bad. Unfortunately I had to pay £27 in import charges which made them quite expensive.
They fit well. I have xxl but they aren't roomy enough to fit a normal liner glove if it was freezing.
However, this being the UK, that's not normally much of an issue.
The cuff fits neatly under jacket sleeves, and they look smart and feel comfortable.
The finger tip access works well with a camera.
I used these on the moors in temp of 4c and they were nice and warm.
They gripped the camera nicely.
One problem I had overlooked was that I have to take them off to use a compass as the magnets upset it.
The metal tag is straight, yet our hands are rounded. I would prefer a stitched branding instead.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase, but next time I'll be looking for a compass friendly option if it exists?

Comfortable photography gloves

A well made glove, both warm and practical. Service was great and the product is well made

Great Beanie hat

I came to the Vallerret web site to buy gloves, and ended up buying a beanie hat as well, and I'm glad I did with the recent cold icy conditions we have had here in England.
I don't normally wear hats but this beanie hat has proved great in the wintery conditions along the coast and on the moors with the biting winds.
Its also proved very practical being able to quickly place my lens cap and cf cards in the turn.
Thanks Vallerret for a great beanie hat and excellent service.

Best Gloves in the world

These gloves must be classed as the best in the world, they are super warm in biting icy conditions we can get here in England in the mountains, moors and coastal locations.
Now on cold mornings I don't have to take off my gloves to set my camera or take a picture, the fold back tips snap into place with the magnets when folded back, and when in place do not let in the cold.
They are also very practical with the little pocket and tripod key, also useful for storing SD cards.
The service from Vallerret is excellent, I had to delay delivery by one day because it was so fast, I didn't expect them to arrive so quickly from Norway.
Thank you Vallerret for excellent gloves and service.

Outstanding

Warm, comfortable, easy to access camera buttons. An look great to.! Brilliant gloves.

Skadi Zipper

Was a bit dubious about spending much on a pair of gloves, suffer terrible from cold hands in Winter so needed something that actually worked for my photography, wow what can I say absolutely brilliant kept my hand lovely and warm well worth the cost, just need not to lose one now when out with camera

Size issue

The gloves are ok and feel warm. The flip finger caps are not that comfortable when closed but ok when open to operate the camera. My biggest concern was the size, chosen following their size chart I could barely fit my hands in it and rcouldn't close my fist. I was lucky enough that a a close friend of mine had recently bought a bigger size that were too big for his hands so we were able to swap them. I really hate to have to go through the return process.

Seams not perfect

The liner feels good on the skin and very cmpfortable, the touch bits are very sensitive, it feels like using bare hands. It came with few stitches missing on the seams, so a bit of a let down.

    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.
