FIND YOUR SIZE:
PEASE NOTE: We design our gloves to be snug for best camera feel possible. This sizing chart reflects snuggly fitted gloves.
The above sizes should enable 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.

Mild day, Pow day or Arctic Winter conditions? Vallerret has you covered!
Due to a currently warm winter, I have yet to use the mitts in the wild. I need them since my hands have very poor circulation such that hand warmers do not help. The mitts fit comfortably over my Tinden gloves and the magnets hold as intended, while the gauntlet over cuffs are easy to close. They are comfortable and certainly feel extremely warm inside our chilly house.
Thanks for your review.
We hope the new Mitts will keep you toasty and warm during your future photography adventures!
About two weeks ago I had the opportunity to use my new gloves while removing about 14 inches of snow from my property in 14-degree weather. Having to hold the metal handles of the snowblower in those temperatures usually leave my hands cold and numb even with hand warmers. The Alta arctic mitts over my gloves worked out so well, that at one point I had on only the liners with the over-mitt. Having the harness also allowed me to remove the gloves and let them hang instead of trying to hold them under an arm or between my legs while doing other things. I can’t wait to actually get out to do photography with them.
Happy to hear you're enjoying the new Arctic Mitts!
Hope you will enjoy them during your photography adventures :)
Happy winter shooting!
These are mittens that work very well when the weather is cold and seemingly miserable. These keep my hands warm and dry. These mittens allow me to quickly expose my fingers so I may take a photo and then quickly coverup my hands. I also found the mitten carry strap to be useful as it keeps the mittens close and secure when I am not wearing the mittens.
We're glad to hear the Mitts and the harness are coming in handy :)
Stay warm and happy winter shooting!
Having photographed in Yellowstone in winter several times, I know about cold weather photography. As a photographer, winter photography can be hard on the fingers. While gloves without fingertips or with removable fingertips are great. Nothing beats a mitt for keeping hands warm. This Over-Mitt allows warm hands while folding back to allow finger use with photo gloves or liner gloves.
Thanks for your feedback :) Stay toasty and warm with these Mitts! Happy winter shooting!
