The best photography gloves for you? I’d like to say your choice is easy but with the new models now in store I think you had best sit down, get a piece of paper and start writing the old faithful “Pro’s and Con’s list”. Deemed Number One in making any decision… Number one bar flipping a coin!

Alrighty, all jokes aside I can actually help you find the best photography glove to suit your needs.

Let’s bring out the models!

Markhof Pro Model Photography Glove

Designed with inspiration from Simon Markhof for the adventurous photographer and to suit Simon’s needs as landscape and actions sport photographer, this bad boy has proved to be our best seller.

Flip the fingers back and access your dials. From the mountains to the streets the Markhof Pro Model equipped with a 100% merino base layer is your everyday glove for extending your session and capturing those prized shots in increased comfort and in even more style.

Vallerret Ipsoot Photography Glove

The Ipsoot

The IPSOOT photography glove is a heavier duty glove providing extra protection agains the elements when those temperatures drop.

The “Ipsoot” , Todd Easterbrook’s pro model photography glove has been designed to enable Todd to be on top of his game as he spends day after day in the Canadian backcountry capturing pro athletes riding at their top level.

From the backcountry powder to dark nights shooting the Northern lights, the “Ipsoot” enables you to extend your session and capture those invaluable shots during the darkest days of winter.

Vallerret W's Nordic Photography Glove

W’s Nordic

Ladies you are in for a treat with the Women’s Nordic! Everything involved in creating a great photography glove, packaged to fit the female hand. The W’s Nordic is a glove suited for your everyday use from shooting landscapes and hiking those peaks to photographing winter portraits in the street.

Flip-fingers, mid-layer Thinsulate insulation and a 100% merino liner base layer, all adds up to becoming your new favourite piece of gear in your photography bag.

Skadi Zipper Mitt PSP

Skadi Zipper Mitt PSP:

This versatile design gives you all the warmth benefits of mittens along with full flexibility to operate your dials, whether you need one finger or four it is just a zip away.

Designed for both the videographer and photographer in mind, the Lukas Riedl Signature (UNISEX) model allows you to adapt to the conditions with this two-in-one Liner and Mitten. Access your fingers and thumb with a zip and flip tech. With merino wool and Primaloft insulation, this glove will keep you warm in the deep days of winter. 


Power Stretch Pro Liner
Power Stretch Pro Liner

We were so impressed with Polartec's Power Stretch Pro material made with blue sign certified materials, we couldn't wait to add it to our line up!

Power Stretch Pro liner is a great base layer for those days where you need that extra warmth, making it a versatile addition to your glove set up. The liner with touch screen compatible index and thumb enables the use of the flip tech whilst leaving nothing exposed, yet still able to swipe your phone or touch the LCD screen on your camera.

Here are the things to consider when choosing the best photography glove for you.

#1 “what am I shooting and how cold is it going to be?”

Each of our models have a winter rating from Mild to Deep. These ratings can go a long way for you to make a decison on the best photography glove for you.

Lets look at some examples.
If your heading away on a “city exploring trip” with a few sunrise and landscape missions then the Markhof is your everyday glove and perfect for this type of photo mission. We like to say this glove can take you from the “Peaks to the Streets”. The W’s Nordic also fits in this category.

Are you Snowboarding / skiing and dealing more directly with your hands in the snow? Then the Trigger mitt with it’s solid design of leather and twill might your choice here.

If you are in the arcitc, hanging out shooting the northern lights, or you are spending your days in the backcountry, hands down you are going to want the warmest model we have. This is the Ipsoot.
(On a side note, if you are going to shoot the northern lights you might want to check out our article on “how to capture the northern lights” )

Moving on….

#2- Male or Female?

If you have to ask yourself if you are male or female then imagine a laughing man in the background (Insert smiley face). This is a question about your hand size and whether you have a slim hand or not.

For the females with the petit and thin hands, the W’s Nordic may be the perfect glove for you, with a combination of fit and extra warmth created by Thinsulate Insulation in between the merino and outer shell this might just be your new best friend.
I know some males have thin hands as well, and if that is you then you are in luck and have this brilliant glove as an option to keeping you out there enjoying winter in all it’s glory.

The Ipsoot, Markhof and Trigger Mitt are unisex models, so this question is a matter of elimination and one step closer to finding the best photography glove for you.

#3- What’s my style?

We all want to look good right? Nothing like a sweet looking new piece of gear to boost the ego. Whilst “style” is a key element in our design consideration when creating our products, I’m not only talking about your fashion sense here. Rather, do you run around a lot whilst shooting. Do you hunt for the one image then sit around waiting for the light to explode into brilliant rich colours? These questions might mean that your temperature rating from earlier may get warmer or colder dependant on the amount of energy you expend whilst on set. Thus you may need to add our Merino liner to your set up so that you have the ability to layer (to learn more about layering see here).

Finding the best glove for photography is easy, head to the Vallerret shop (photographygloves.com/shop) , deciding on the best model needs a little thought. If you are still not sure and need some assistance, we are always happy to help so shoot us a message.

Lastly, If there is something specifically that our products do not cover, I.e earth photography from the international space station, then we want to hear from you! Please also shoot us a message via the contact page.

Happy shooting and enjoy the winter.

Goodmorning! Although I read your explanation on the gloves, I´d like your advice. Although I do not live in a country where it gets thát cold, I need a really warm glove for my photography work. I often work on the beach where wind and moist make it even colder. As a result of some kind of a disease, I very quickly get cold fingers (and toes). So what I am looking for is a very warm glove. However, this should not negatively have influence on the flexibility (i.e. the way to operate the camera). I am a female and my handsizes are length (just)18 and width (just) 21. What type would you advice? Do I need liners (as they work on screen I think it could be a great extra?). Can you deliver this week or not later than Monday, as I need them Monday night? Thanks for your reply, Jacqueline de Groot

I am interested in the women gloves. Do you know when more sizes will be available? I think i would be a small. extra small is too small I am sure.
I am so excited that these are created in Norway. Both my grandparents came from there. I finally got to visit this summer. I t was the trip of a life time!
