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.
This glove is jam-packed with photography-specific specs so let’s jump into it!
This glove is unisex sizing so when measuring your hand, compare the measurements to Unisex Sizing Chart. Remember, we design our gloves to fit snugly to ensure the best camera feel so if you like a looser fitting glove or are between sizes, you might want to size up.
This glove is designed for mild winter conditions. It’s perfect to photography where you need to take the chill off your skin but you’re never too far from a warm cafe or a hot cup of tea.

Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please consider to go a size up.
As we learn more and more about gloves we also learn that all hands are different. Some people have long skinny fingers and slim wrists, others have wide hands with short fingers.
Our gloves wont fit all even with the right measurements from the sizing chart – but we try!
For many, the best option will be to go up a size if your measurements are in between sizes.
If you are between sizes or if your hands do not fit into the measurements on our sizing chart, we recommend prioritizing the fit for the girth measurement. The girth is the most important measurement and if the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.
If you’re considering pairing a liner glove with your photography gloves, we recommend choosing the same size liner as photography glove. We designed our liners to be thin and fit inside of our photography gloves so we recommend your normal size in liners. There are two exceptions to this:
Exception #1: If you are at the very end of the ratio size in the sizing chart, e.g. 1 mm from being a size Large, then we advise going up a glove size if you plan to often wear the liner with the gloves.
Exception #2: If your personal preference is to wear fairly loose gloves, then you should also go up a size when adding a liner. We don't recommend this as you will compromise dexterity with loose gloves and our priority is best possible camera feel. But you know best what you like!
House tip: Make sure to choose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
