I have only tried them on, they are excellent, I am looking forward to using them, eventually in Iceland with luck. I rarely win anything, these are very well designed and thought out, I am really pleased, thank you for your speedy delivery and communication
Our pleasure Daz! We are stoked that you like your gloves, fingers crossed you will get to take them to Iceland soon. All the best for your next photo adventure:-)
I ordered size XS, which is the smallest possible size, but they are still too large for me. Previously I used Women's gloves (also size XS) which are specifically built for small female hands. Those were perfect, but too cold.
These Ipsoots are slightly bigger making it harder for me to handle my camera as the fingertop randomly flips back because my finger doesn't reach that far. However they are still very warm and I will keep them on me.
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!
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.
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.

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!
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.
