I just bought a pair of the Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Gloves from London Drugs and like them very much. With my limited experience with them I would consider "Mid Winter" to be -10C, if you are shooting in colder weather go with the Ipsoot Photography Gloves, which are rated as "Deep Winter" gloves.
These gloves are amazing. They are comfortable, warm and beautiful! Opted for the large size as I was just on the edge of the size for length. The size is perfect and I’m so happy with them. Nice to still be able to control camera, phone or any other device with still keeping rest of hand and fingers toasty!
The gloves are well made from what I can see so far but time will tell,
The only complaint I have is the metal Vallerret badge that sits on the back of your hand when wearing the gloves if it was a embroidered badge it would be 100% better.
If Vallerret come out with a V 3.0 with my idea of an embroidered badge then I would love a free upgrade please 😉 overall I’m happy with the gloves.
Kind Regards Richard
Effortless purchasing, perfect fit, very warm. They are super handy for outdoor photography session. Expectations fully met, highly recommended! I RECEIVED FAST DELIVERY TODAY ONLY 4 DAYS TO UK SUPER.
Look great and fit snugly.
Will send review when I've had a chance to wear them out there.
It is a good start if you want to improve your photography! Also Carl is a fun guy to listen to and I really got some tips to improve. The full manual shoot was pretty cool to, lots of tips and tricks in it!
These are now my Go To Gloves! Warm, well fitted, the fold away finger tips are perfect! Such a great idea, I don't know why every glove maker isn't doing this!
I'd already placed a second order for some of the EVEN warmer ones :)
Also the size exchange program is amazing, the customer service has been perfect! I requested a change in size, and they are already on the way, before I've sent them back! Super efficient!
I'd 100% recommend these gloves!
Received the gloves in perfect condition week before Christmas. Visited my daughter in Northern Ontario for Christmas holidays where it was -15c, which is very cold. The gloves performed admirably with no concerns. Very pleased with the quality, craftmanship and materials that make up these gloves. Would recommend inner liners for the extreme cold days. Happy with this purchase.
Good but for the price I expected better design and quality.
The cuffs are too short, the magnets are weak.
The gloves arrived very quickly unfortunately I took a size too small. Vallerret customer service sent me back a new pair in my size before I even sent back the ones I had received. The gloves look great, thank you very much for your trust and speed!
Ordered these gloves for my wife. The gloves fit her hands okay, but the index finger holes were too tight causing discomfort. I have returned the gloves and re-ordered Markhof Pro 2.0s to replace them.
all-in-all?!? loving them! ... while some things are... okay -to- pretty good.
of course, taste is subjective and some people might just not like the colors. but for me, the gloves are stylish, good-looking and functional at the same time. i like the fact that they are for the more moderate cold weather; for me that'd be around 0°C, plus i have to be pretty 'active' with my hands. anything colder, say below -5°C, and the fingers are going to get cold... but for that, and for more outdoorsy stuff, i am using the MARKHOF PRO, for even colder one should use the IPSOOT... the URBEX isn't meant for that.
what’s does not work so good for me?
- i have big hands and the sizes-range could be better. i bought the tallest size (XL), and it’s a tight and reasonably comfortable fit; they are supposed to be a snug fit, so i guess that’s okay.
- the cuffs are a little to short and they aren’t sown very clean at the spots at the inside-seam, at the little leather-applications/-tags, where the gloves were tucked together for delivery.
- the leatherstrap snapback across the top of the glove is pretty tight, i hope the leather will still stretch a little, else i fear the snap will break.
all-in-all these points are no 'big points' (for me). i like my pair of URBEXs, i definitely don’t regret having bought them, and i would buy them again!
It is ridiculous how hard it is to find a glove that is both warm, wind and weather proof, as well as allowing hassle free access to use the index and thumb properly. I've done all other manner of combinations with other gloves and always end up ditching the right hand glove entirely and regretting it all day.
I took the Ipsoot gloves out this past weekend in below zero weather for some wildlife photos, and they handled ABSOLUTELY great all day. Great grip, warmth... and FINALLY usability with my gear.
Well done Vallerret!
The liner is well made and fits great but it does not work with the swipe up function on the iphone to unlock the phone by accessing facial recognition.
Whilst I am still waiting to experience cold weather conditions, I find the gloves are very warm to wear and provide a good grip on my Nikon. The finger tips with magnetic closures are excellent. Wearing gloves whilst taking photos is not always easy but the photography gloves will help.
Very high quality, lovely warm gloves. Very pleased
Well made great design
I absolutely love these liners. So comfortable and the perfect weight to wear under a mitten or on those cool mornings.
Medium warm and great for winter photography on our recent trip to the Swiss Alps.
Sadly the wool on the cuff gets caught on the Velcro of winter jackets and can fray.
They kept my hands toasty at 65 degrees south (that’s 65 degrees latitude, not temperature).
Hand Warmer - ONLY HOT
Qualité de fabrication irréprochable, esthétique agréable, très confortable. Totalement satisfait de l’achat. Aucun souci de livraison. Je recommande.
