See Sizing Chart below or enlarged through this link.

Please note that we have UNISEX photography gloves and one customized FEMALE photography glove (W’s Nordic). If you are looking at the W’s Nordic go to the “Female Sizing” and for all other gloves go to “Unisex Sizes”.

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:-)

We advise to wear the same size merino liner as glove, so e.g. Ipsoot Medium with a Medium Merino Liner. Naturally, the glove will be more snug/tight with the added liner, but there will be room.

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 merino 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 chose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.

We’d advise you to hand wash your gloves and keep them the far away from the tumble dryer. As the gloves have 100 % merino wool liners, the wool may shrink or twist in the tumble dryer if not handled properly, so don’t take any chances here.

Women Nordic size medium

They are a bit stiff and the hole that you poke your fingers through is very tight I hope they get loose as I use them the lining is white around the finger opening should have been black makes look cheap but they appear to be warm will use them at Yosemite next week and if they do not loosen up I may have to return.

Hi Susan :) The white insulation can show slightly on the W's Nordic and Markhof Pro 2.0 gloves as they have Thinsulate insulation inside the gloves, and we've designed these models to have the 'instant flip-tech' where the opening is an open slit. The open slit 'instant flip tech' is faster to work with compared to an overlap flip-tech. So the best of both worlds may reveal a little insulation, but don't worry, it's only the stuff that keeps your hands toasty warm when you are out shooting:-) Anyway, drop us a line at support@photographygloves.com after your trip if you're not satisfied with the product :) Cheers, Anna
