The next generation of our heavy-weight glove champ, The Alta Arctic Mitt is for your extreme Winter photography adventures (UNISEX sizing).

As a "glove for your glove", it's designed to be worn over any of the Vallerret photography glove models, adding that extra layer of warmth and protection, keeping your hands heated all winter long.

What's the difference between the Alta Over-mitt and Alta Arctic Mitt?

Good question! We've made a few upgrades to our highly regarded Alta Over-Mitt, so here is a full list of features with some comparisons to the Alta Over-Mitt.


Thumb caps added:

An easy to spot update are the thumb caps. Flip back the thumb to expose your inner glove and gain access to your dials.

High Performance outer shell materials:
Goat leather and DWR Laminated soft twill resists water and gives excellent wind protection, whilst the Nylon Taffeta liner allows the Alta Mitt to slide smoothly over your glove.

Hi Marion, thank you for your comment. Yes, our glove sizing chart is applicable across different models, including the new Alta Arctic Mitt.

New Alta Mitts are pretty bulky so they would work smoothly with Markhof Pro V3.

We have some winter sports fans who want a tighter fit, so they go down a size with Altas, but in all other cases, the same size as your base glove is fine. :-)

Sound fabulous, and will order two pairs with harness. First, I need to get your help with a question:
My daughter and I both bought the very flexible Markhof Pro V3 gloves in Size Medium. Do you recommend buying the Alta Arctic Mitts in Unisex Size Medium also to fit easily, without being tight and your fingers getting cold, over these gloves?

Thanks for getting back to me on this so we can sign up for the early bird deals!
