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 or often oblivious to the photographer with the camera. 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.

When it comes to street photography, you need to be ready to shoot in a matter of seconds or you’ll risk losing your candid composition or your moving subject. Street photographers know that having the gear dialled is essential to a good capture which is why we’ve created the Urbex Street Photography Glove so you spend less time fussing with your gloves and more time getting the shot.

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 well for the photographer which is why we chose a timeless tan goat leather with a 100% merino wool liner to keep you warm and comfortable.

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.
