Introducing the brand new Urbex Glove for Street Photography. This glove is new to our 2020 glove lineup we are so excited to be offering a solution to all of the winter street photographers who brave the streets during the colder months.

From candid shots to geometric compositions to vacant alleyways, the concrete jungle is a photographer’s playground with endless opportunities for interesting shots to be had.

Street photography can be one of the hardest types of photography because it requires a great deal of patience and flexibility. Your subjects are often on the move, it's quick pace, your composition is ever-changing in front of the lens and that magic moment of interaction really does only last for a split second  

It's all about having your gear dialed and ready to press that shutter in split second, which is why we’ve created the Urbex Street Photography Glove. 

The Urbex was created to help street photographers maintain a balance of style, warmth, and functionality. We wanted to make a glove that looks great while walking around town but also performed for the photographer.

These guidelines led us to creative decisions, like a timeless tan goat leather shell. Keeping the urban look with a soft and pliable feel, allowing the photography to wrap their hand firmly around their kit. A DWR coating has been applied the leather to protect against that winter precipitation.

For warmth, we utilise our favourite merino wool liner to keep you warm and comfortable, and keeping the glove thin enough to operate your gear.

With warm hands and access to your dials, you can now forget about messing with your gloves and instead spend your time looking for that angle. Getting that shot no matter which city you are exploring.

Urbex Design Details

This glove is jam-packed with photography-specific specs so let’s jump into it!

Tech Specs:

  • FlipTech finger caps: This glove comes with our signature FlipTech finger caps so you’re ready to shoot in seconds. Just flip the finger cap and enjoy full access to your dials. The caps are held back by a magnet so they stay out of your way while you get your shot. 
  • 100 % Merino Wool inner: The benefits of merino wool are many but in short, even just a thin layer of merino wool will help keep you warm and toasty without adding bulk to your glove proving that merino continues to be nature’s best weapon against the cold. It’s natural antimicrobial properties help keep the bacterial stink down and the merino fibres are moisture wicking meaning you stay warm even if the merino gets wet. 
  • Magnets: The magnets on the back of the index finger and thumb keep the FlipTech open and out of the way so you have full access to your camera. 
  • Genuine Goats Leather: Tan genuine goats leather for that street style and durable use.
  • Knit Cuff: Comfortable and cosy knit cuff with a snap button strap to keep the glove snug and your wrists warm.
  • Touch Screen Compatible: Conductive suede Index and Thumb so you can swipe, send, answer and scroll as per usual. Use your touchscreen devices without ever having to take off your glove. 
  • Fitted Glove Design: Slim and fitted design for reduced bulk, comfort and great camera feel.
