Grant quality. Prompt service. Have not been able to find a photography specific glove until saw Thomas Heaton wearing a pair! I know these are meant to be snug but I was on the cusp between a medium and large. Ordered both but found medium a little tight given the articulated finger design. Very happy with large and allows a liner glove for when its really does get nippy.
Fantastic, they are everything they say they are, I have really big hands and struggle to find gloves to fit, I followed the sizing chart, and the gloves fit perfectly.
Bought as a gift for a very fussy photographer, but she loves them. Great looking, quality materials and fit. Features mean you can still use camera without removing gloves. You do get what you pay for.
I have had limited use so far so a first impression review. Some of my comments are minor irritations only. Worn in windy 5-9c UK. A very warm glove. Fingertip/thumb access is good for smart phone and camera. Magnets work well. The grip is very good. Putting on and taking off feels like I am going to damage the join between elastic cuff and palm of glove, so having to think about how I do that to maximize life. The grip pattern looks messy, looks like it’s peeling off, it is not, I would preferred a solid grip material on the palm and fingers. The glove performs exactly as advertised. Time will tell if it was worth the £75 I paid for them. I expect to have more regular use through the winter and have a better idea of the real value to me. No show stopper complaints. Cheers Ben
You may be able to buy similar gloves from elsewhere for less money but i can assure you they will not be the 1st class quality of these gloves. Customer service for myself was excellent, i bought the large Markof pro2 gloves and on receipt i thought the gloves were very snug and a bit short in the cuff. Although the company say they are a snug fit i thought i might need the x large so i contacted the company with my concerns and the company said to put my mind at ease they would send me the x large so i could compare the two and then return the size i didn't want. As it happens i was happier with the x large giving me the extra room.I don't feel my hands are that big so when ordering i myself would go up one size .
Worn the liners twice whilst in Scotland and already the stitching on the finger has come apart
These gloves look and feel great, and as they come with liners they are great value. So far I haven't had change to use them in colder weather (only minus five  degrees o celcius so far).
These gloves do look great and they feel also great, so far I have used them only at minus five (5) degrees of celcius. I would nice if these would have also touch support so you would not have to pull finger tip off just to answer your phone, but I have to test this with newest Primaloft liner glove when it gets more arctic temperatures.
Have worn these gloves 3 times so far.Tempertures from 6-9 degrees Celsius.
Positive points lovely fit, robust material,magnetic holders on fingers work well.
However the negative point, considering the mild temperature that I have worn them in,my hands felt cold after 30 minutes which I am a little disappointed with especially with the Marino lining.
Doing street photography in winter is quite challenging, even more with a Raynaud syndroma. With this gloves, I am finally able to combine having warm hands and doing street photography.
The gloves are very flexible, easy to handle the camera with and the lens for manual focusing necessary for analog. The magnet are fine while one hand is a bit more difficult to stick but not a problem for photography. It seems that the tissue will go more flexible and the magnet easier to handle with time. The gloves are very warm and still not heavy, and fitting perfectly in the pocket. I combine them easily with silk gloves or heating "under-gloves" for long walk.
Negative point for me would be that the left glove is a bit larger than the right one and do not fit my hand as good as the other. It would have been even better to have a combination that is fitting for long fingers and smaller palm.
Overall, I highly recommend it, in particular for photographer suffering from Raynaud syndroma!
I have 2 pairs of the Markhoff mk2 glove, as the first pair I bought in the same size as my mk1 pair - large. I also have a pair of ipsoot in large.
So I bought the same size on preorder and assumed be the right fit, so I took ana threw the packaging and when tried them on they were too tight.
So as I had left the return too long Inassumed was too late, so order a pair in XL.
XL is the perfect size, and the gloves I think are an improvement on the Mk 1’s. Fit well, made well and keep the hands warm as needed.
So in closing, great globe I highly recommend as I do my Ipsoot and mk1 originals. Not to mention my now spare pair of too small mk2!
Love this peace! Great quality and very warm! My every day beanie for winter 2018/19!
Very well thought after design and flawless production quality. Feels just right on hand and gives you very solid grip on your camera. Magnet holders are nice touch. Still did not have a chance to test it on extreme cold, but I see no reason why it will not do the job of keeping your hands warm and fully functioning on any winter conditions.
These are hands down the best gloves that I’ve owned. The thing is I am 6’5” tall and have large hands. Makhof pro 2.0 keeps the hands warm and I can function without losing the warmth on my hands. Would recommend these gloves to anyone looking to work outside doing what we love photography. Thank you for this product, Vallerret.
Perfect balance of dexterity and warmth. Tips stay out of the way nicely allowing you to focus on your photography. Keep my raynauds challenged fingers quite functional.
The magnetic components on the gloves are very handy and practical when it comes to adjusting the dials on my camera, but also a variety of other things (like using the touch screen on my phone!) without having to sacrifice warmth and immobile frozen hands to take those shots anymore :D Previously I'd have to choose between keeping my hands warm or taking that shot and risk white frozen hands. These gloves fit me so well and even when the finger flaps are pulled back, the rest of my hand stays surprisingly warm! It's also very resistant to water and snow won't find its way in no matter how much snow you encounter as the flaps are quite well sealed in that regard. This is a winter photography game changer... would highly recommend! Thanks Vallerret :D
Amazing idea that will keep my hands warm when photographing outside for long hours! I have poor circulation and always suffer with cold hands and feet so I think these will be a god send. stylish too!
only improvement I would think about maybe is some sort of tether so if you take them off completely you don't lose them altogether?
Great customer service too. thank you
It took me a while finding gloves which are perfect for photographers. Warm, comfortable for shoots outside and still good looking. Then I found Vallerret and I immediately fell in love with my outstanding W's Nordic Photography Gloves. Love them!
I rarely give reviews but I felt I had to for these Vallerat Photography Gloves. They are excellent. They are strong, waterproof and comfortable to wear. The finger tip flaps work fine, just a little tug pulls them off, and pulls them back on. I particularly like the way the glove has a slight curve to take up the shape of the hand and allow an easy grip of the camera.
Very quick delivery, excellent build quality and just a comfortable fit while allowing quick access to the camera. The Ipsoot is perfect for those extra cold days on Lofoten, Iceland and similar places.
