- Photography Gloves
FIND YOUR SIZE:
PEASE NOTE: We design our gloves to be snug for best camera feel possible. This sizing chart reflects snuggly fitted gloves.
The above sizes should enable 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!
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.
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.

Alta Arctic Mitts include a carabiner clip and a Glove Harness to keep the Alta's around your hips and out of the way when not needed.
Never worn a glove harness? Buddy, you are in for a treat! Just drop your gloves and let them hang or tug them behind your back without worrying about loosing them.
30 days after ordering I am still awaiting delivery. The tracking link shows they are in a depot somewhere and when I contacted Vallerett to cancel the order there was a mention that they were waiting for someone to pay customs duty. Not sure if there was a missed communication somewhere but something went wrong. Order in plenty of time for any trips you might need them for!

Absolutely stunning gloves for deep winter. In my personal view, better than Skadi Zipper Mitts. The zip is better placed and more practical to use. The gauntlet cuffs are very long and roomy so they protect your wrists well with no issues to drag it over your jacket sleeves. Top shelf product!
Thank you for your review! We're so happy you love our Alta Arctic Mitt Photography Glove! We hope you enjoy using them this winter!
I suffer from Reynauds so easily get very cold fingers which are then useless. This mitt which goes over my gloves is great and takes heaters inside without trouble and solves the issue
Thank you for your review of the Alta Arctic Mitt. We're happy to hear they are keeping you toasty and warm over your gloves :)
Due to a currently warm winter, I have yet to use the mitts in the wild. I need them since my hands have very poor circulation such that hand warmers do not help. The mitts fit comfortably over my Tinden gloves and the magnets hold as intended, while the gauntlet over cuffs are easy to close. They are comfortable and certainly feel extremely warm inside our chilly house.
Thanks for your review.
We hope the new Mitts will keep you toasty and warm during your future photography adventures!
About two weeks ago I had the opportunity to use my new gloves while removing about 14 inches of snow from my property in 14-degree weather. Having to hold the metal handles of the snowblower in those temperatures usually leave my hands cold and numb even with hand warmers. The Alta arctic mitts over my gloves worked out so well, that at one point I had on only the liners with the over-mitt. Having the harness also allowed me to remove the gloves and let them hang instead of trying to hold them under an arm or between my legs while doing other things. I can’t wait to actually get out to do photography with them.
Happy to hear you're enjoying the new Arctic Mitts!
Hope you will enjoy them during your photography adventures :)
Happy winter shooting!
