Winter is looming and you know what that means. Time to introduce some new photography gloves in the lineup :)

Introducing the Guardian! Throughout the years, our gloves have helped photographers stay warm whilst photographing disappearing ice caps in the Arctic, capturing wild animals in their natural snowy habitat, and accompanied photographers as they visit some of the most impressive and remote winter locations on the planet. We’ve helped landscape photographers, wildlife photographers and urban photographers create their art in comfort and this year, we are introducing The Guardian, a limited edition glove designed for photographers and photojournalists who are tasked with covering conflict areas.  

The guardian photography glove for photojournalists

The Concept:

The Guardian was born out of a quest to find a solution for photojournalists working in high risk, cold locations. Many photojournalists work with the military and are required to wear protective gear whilst on duty. Being out in the field as a photojournalist requires gear that is not only warm and protective but also extremely durable. Photojournalists are at constant risk of harm and need gear that will keep them safe in order to tell their important stories through images.

The Details:

The Guardian has all the bells and whistles that have become signature for our brand. FlipTech on the pointer finger and thumb allow instant access to your camera dials and settings and the sticky grippy palm print gives you a good hold on your equipment without fear of losing your grip, even when tensions are high. The Guardian is insulated with Thinsulate Insulation with a 100% merino wool liner to keep you warm and the back of the hand and fingers feature Kevlar material for maximum protection. 

Glove features:

  • Kevlar & premium goat leather for protection
  • Flip-Tech index and thumbs with magnets
  • Non-slip grip
  • Thinsulate insulation for warmth 
  • Built-in tripod key (tighten your tripod base plate)
  • Pre-curved ergonomic fit
  • 100% Merino Wool lining
  • Jersey cuff for easy on/off

The Magic of Kevlar:

Kevlar is an extremely unique material made from synthetic fibre that is strong enough to stop bullets and knives. It’s five times stronger than steel whilst still being a relatively light material. Kevlar is made from plastic but unlike most plastics, Kevlar doesn’t melt. It stands up to relatively high temperatures and only starts to decompose around 450 degrees Celsius (850 degrees Fahrenheit). Kevlarcan resist attacks from many different chemicals and is virtually unchanged when exposed to long periods of moisture or extremely hot water.
