Outstanding Mitten!

Over the last 10 years, as a landscape photographer, I have been using a popular brand "-30F mitten" for my backcountry treks during winter months. Once on-location, I have been shifting to a wind-resistant glove to provide more dexterity with camera controls.

My wife has another brand of mittens with 'touch sensitive' liners that, quite frankly...suck! So, my mission has been to try out the Vallerret photography mittens with touch sensitive liners both for my own benefit, but also for her.

I am supremely happy with these mittens. They are very warm (temps were 0F -> 14F on day of 1st test trek), the ability to unzip the upper portion of the mitten to expose the liner for camera control was fairly easy and the liner, the touch sensitive liner is, by far, the BEST liner I have ever used with my smartphone.

I would give these a 10 star rating if I could and will be happy to purchase a pair of these mittens for my wife, in the near future.

Excellent quality but little issues

I went to Yellowstone and the temps were down to -31*. For the most part, the gloves/mitt combination worked well for the cold. The quality is first rate. Now the critique and I hope this helps: When you zip up the gloves, you need to use your teeth on the leather attachment strap on the zipper to get the mitt in order to pull the zipper closed. I decided to pull off the mitt, take my shots, then put it back on. Each time was also a challenge as the cotton? cuff would roll under making it again, a time consuming evolution, when you want to shoot and move on quickly (animal shots). Both the gloves and mitt are mediums and they "fit me like a glove".(I do wonder if a large in the mitt would have worked better) In the snow, they kept my hand dry but I reverted to my REI mitts with the fingerless gloves within as it was quicker and easier when snow was not an issue.
We may have a repeat trip this next year and I may invest in your heavier over mitts as they may offer me quicker access in and out which I find is imperative. I appreciate the interest you have on your end for customer feedback as it shows you care about your customers and your product.All in all, I am glad I bought them. Thank you.

Skadi mitt glove combo

Very well designed. Chose one size up from the size indicated by the measurement chart and they fit perfectly. Their first trial was at -13C, which was a bit nippy for the gloved fingers.😊 Overall, am very pleased!

Happy to hear that you're pleased with the gloves Pat! Happy winter shooting :)

Like my new gloves - Skadi Zipper Mitt

Nice looking gloves and kept my hands reasonably warm during first shoot. I like the liners but that can be tricky to fit; since they are inside the mitt, there can be guess work in finding the right home for each finger. Sometimes needed to use my teeth to unzip the mitt to release my fingers. Maybe it will take a few more shoots to to get used to them. Nonetheless, so far so good, no regrets.

Thanks for the review and feedback Michael! Happy you like the gloves overall - warm hands and happy shooting!

Nordic gloves

I finally found gloves who are warm enough to photography outside but also allow hands movements and setting the camera functions.

Stoked to hear you're happy with the gloves Gemma! Warm hands and happy winter shooting :)
Great lightweight pair of liner gloves

I very much like these gloves. I have 3 pair of them now. I most often use them alone and when it is very cold I use them as liners for the Vallerret mittens. When using them alone, I have found them to be nice insulation between my hands/fingers and the cold surfaces of my tripod. I have also found them to provide a bit of insulation even when wet. The only reason I don’t rate them at 5 stars is that they lack any “tackiness”. I need to be careful when handling my camera or even more so my lenses as these gloves aren’t “grippy”. This is probably a consequence of being designed as a “liner” glove where the “grippyness” would make it difficult to insert them in other gloves. Furthermore, the fabric is, by design, “stretchy”. So any material that would be added to make them more “grippy” would need to also be able to stretch. Maybe they could use little dots of “grippy” material similar to the socks that my grandchildren have so they can run around on hardwood floors without slipping and sliding as would happen with normal socks. ;-). All that said, I very much like these gloves and keep one pair in my down puffy at all times.

Thanks for the feedback Dan, really happy you like the gloves overall :D Warm hands and happy shooting!
Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Gloves DO THE JOB!

I had tried two other less expensive brands of photography gloves and found both to be lacking, either inflexible or not warm. This pair from Vallerret are both flexible and warm. They're great!

Comfortably Handy

The gloves fit well when I tried them on upon receiving them and I'm pretty tickled about the tripod key. :) Sadly, spring is upon us so I didn't have a chance to truly try them out. I look forward to that day.
