Women's Nordic model is the best glove I've ever seen

This is the best glove I think I've ever seen especially for photography but also works great for using my phone and texting. The gloves are warm and water resistant, so I can take pictures in winter cold a whole day comfortably. There is removable finger tips with little magnets to hold them back, work reasonably well and allow full control for my camera and the fingers and palm have excellent grip. These gloves are exactly what I expected from a long time ago, even better than I expected. I highly recommended these gloves for anyone especially for photography or for daily use in cold environment.

Thanks very much for your review Nelly, we're stoked you like your gloves! Cheers, Stine
Great photography gloves

I like these gloves, lightweight but warm. I like the touch fingers to handle the camera.

Quick delivery to Australia

I confess, I won't be wearing the gloves myself - they are a present. They look great to me! And if the quality is as good as the efficiency of the admin, delivery and communications, then I'm sure it will be top class!

It‘s been a long jearney until I found the best fitting and best functional gloves for my photography work. Don‘t look anyfurther.

The magnets are not strong enough, they don't hold the flip-backs to stay in place.

The magnets are not strong enough, they don't hold the flip-backs to stay in place. Otherwise good, comfortable.

Fits well after some use!

Fits well after some use! Good to work buttons on cameras really well. If it does get really cold, make sure to have an extra glove just to keep warm over a longer period.. The Ipsoot I really just use while operating the camera.

Ultra warm gloves!

Giving 5* although only worn a few times but early impression is positive.

Giving 5* although only worn a few times but early impression is positive. Good comfortable warm fit, L size was a good choice for me as it allows for a marino wool liner glove. Palm features gave good grip of the camera. Looking forward to using gloves.

I bought these for a recent trip to Iceland.

I bought these for a recent trip to Iceland. Unsure of their warmth since I didn't get to trial them through winter in the Midwest I also bought some glove liners from Amazon.
These gloves were great and never really found myself needing the liners through the days that were in the 20s and 30s F. That being said, we were pretty mobile throughout the trip hiking and layered which ended up allowing us to maintain warmth pretty well once we got our blood flowing. If you are going to be more stationary or in more freezing temperatures I would recommend getting the glove liners, or finding liners elsewhere.
The zip pocket on the back of the gloves I believed to be gimmicky at first but ended up using them microfiber clothes for quick accessibility to clean filters and lenses. Came in really handy getting close to waterfalls with the constant misting.
The cutouts for your finger tips work great but I found myself rarely being able to keep them down with the magnets and, more than not, just allowed them to flap behind my finger. Which wasn't an issue or an annoyance for me at all.

Bought them as a gift for my boyfriend who loves to shoot at night with long exposure sometimes on mountain top, they are super comfy, the grip is great, the pocket for an extra sd card helped him a lot. No more frozen fingers for this guy!

Bought during the recent cold weather in the UK early spring, and found them really warm whilst providing excellent access to my DSLR controls, both with the tips turned back and in many cases with the tips still in place. I had wondered if I should have used an under glove, but in practice I found no need in the moderately low temperatures prevailing (0 - 7 deg C).
Regarding fit, my hands are long but relatively narrow, and the size L that I bought are almost but not quite long enough, whilst being slightly too wide. Trying some new gloves on at the recent Photography show at the NEC, I found that size M is perfect for width, and the size L is the best length for me, as size XL is a bit too long.

Perfect glove for taking photographs.

Perfect glove for taking photographs. The holes and the magnets work really well. I'm really happy with them. I'm happy with the fit. They are tight which is what I wanted. You can work dials pretty easily with the finger holes.
Why one star off.
I still can't get the L merino liners which need to go with it. These do not seem to have been restocked.
The glove only has very weak water resistance. It doesn't claim to be waterproof but says water resistant. I'd find it only weakly water resistant.
Overall its a well designed glove. It's an excellent glove for 0c to 10c in dry weather. Below that you need the liners or you feel it in the tips.

A great pair of gloves.

A great pair of gloves. My one difficulty was fitting them over a pair of merino liner gloves - even though i have XL size it is a bit of a struggle to fit them on easily.

Premium quality, and they fit perfect.

Bulky and restricts movement

I had high hopes for these gloves to be the answer to my winter photography needs. Alas, they are bulky, restrict hand movement, and nearly impossible to manipulate the camera controls while wearing them, even with the flipped fingers open. I haven't had a chance to test them for warmth yet, but it almost doesn't matter if I can't use them for photography. Unfortunately, Vallerret charged a fortune in shipping to send them to me in Canada (and I was charged taxes, duties and customs fees on top of this) and they would charge me to return ship them at my own expense, meaning even if I wanted to send them back for a refund, I'd be out nearly a hundred bucks. Worst decision I ever made. Don't be fooled.

Hi Sarah. So sorry to read that you are not happy with your gloves and your overall experience. We are currently looking into a smoother delivery process into Canada. We love our Ws Nordic exactly like it is and have the Markhof Pro as a thinner glove alternative. If you wish to return your gloves for a refund, no problem, we can arrange this within Canada. If you send me an email to support@photographygloves.com with your order number, we will refund you and try our very best to turn around your experience:-) Thanks Sarah! cheers, Stine

These gloves are maybe very nice but I'm trying to buy them for 2 monthes and they are always unavailable... so if you want some gloves, this is the wrong website (Yes, I'm a little angry)

Hi Lan. We're very sorry to keep you waiting, but the demand for our gloves have been much higher than anticipated this year. We have other models available, but the Markhof Pro which is currently sold out in some sizes will come back in October 2018 in a slightly different design. I know this is a while away, but we hope to see you back in the shop then:-) Thanks Lan, Best regards /Stine

I used them all the past winter, in temperatures about -5°C to + 5°C not only for photgraphy, but also as Allday-gloves. They feel very fine, the grip is ecellent, also just goin on bike with them.
In lower temperatures the isolation wouldn`t be enough for me. The liners, some other people are reportinh about hier, I don`t know yet. Maybe that`s a solution, so I am not sure, if my fingers fit with them in my XL-sized gloves. Alternativelx I am thinking about the Ipsoot gloves, so I afraid, that they may be a bit Sturdy in usage.

Wore these in New Zealand in April, including before dawn and after dusk outings in wind, rain and some light snow. Used them in temperatures down to just below 0 deg Celsius. Very warm and not over-bulky. The palms grip incredibly well on icy handrails (eg the swing bridges over the Hooker Valley) which was excellent. Be aware that if you use them on the beach though that sand will also stick to the palms, so you need to keep brushing it off before handling anything like lenses or filters. Overall very practical gloves. I usually wear a men's medium glove as I have slightly longer fingers and wider palm, but the women's large fits quite well, snug and without excess length in the fingertips. The flip top fingertips work very well for camera handling and fishing things out of bags or pockets. Highly recommended.

Clever design and excellent quality.

Clever design and excellent quality. I have not yet used them enough to comment on how the fold-back feature and magnets perform after a lot of use but I am very pleased so far.
