If you are a Winter Photographer who needs a reliable Deep-Winter Photography Glove, we have recently launched, not one, but two awesome models!

We're pumped to present to you The Tinden and The Hatchet.

Now, since the pre-launch, we've been getting lots of questions about these two models.

How do they compare to each other? What are the differences? What's similar?

To answer these questions and help you get a clear picture of what these gloves are capable of, we have created a guide where all the features are explained and compared.

We go feature by feature and at the end give you tips how to decide what to get.

 

Cuff

There are two different Cuff designs.
Both function to keep the glove in position on your hand and your wrist warm. Depending on your preference you may like one or the other style.

 Tinden Hatchet

Gauntlet Cuff and strap:
Cuff and strap open wider when putting the glove on and can be tightened to preference when wearing the glove. It's designed to go under your jacket sleeve.
Extended Jersey Knit Cuff:
The Extended Jersey knit cuff fits snug around the wrist with an easy-on/easy-off glide. It's designed to go under your jacket sleeve.

 

Materials

The difference: The Hatchet was inspired by a working glove. By using full leather and removing all the seams on the palm, the Hatchet will take a beating.

Tinden is a mix of DWR Leather and DWR Polyester with a laminated membrane.
Hatchet is full Leather.

 

Insulation

Both are created and suited for Deep winter. The Tinden will be slightly warmer due to heavier insulation on the back.

Deciding what to get?

There is the style and there is the function.

Function: Whilst both are designed for photography and have equal access to your dials, the Tinden would be better suited for mountain tops and the Hatchet better suited for frozen woodlands and hiking.

Style: We can’t ignore that we all have a certain style that we like, Perhaps the Hatchet suits your eye better than the Tinden or vice versa, the Hatchet Natural Tan is especially pleasing to us.

The cuffs are also different, Tinden has a gauntlet cuff and wrist strap, the Hatchet has a jersey cuff, you may have a preference on the style of cuff you like to wear.
