FIND YOUR SIZE:
PLEASE 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.
Overmitt Design for Ultimate Protection
Capture exceptional images in extreme cold with the Alta Arctic Mitt Photography Glove. Like a sleeping bag for your hand, the Alta Arctic Mitt is the final layer for your extreme adventures. Designed as an "Overmitt" to be worn over any of the Vallerret Photography Glove models.
Overmitt Design for Ultimate Insulation
The Alta Arctic Mitt is designed to be worn over a base glove (we recommend Tinden or Markhof Pro V3) for maximum warmth and protection against freezing temperatures, icy winds, and snow. The Alta Arctic Mitt glove is large in volume, most likely the biggest gloves you've ever owned. But it's all for a reason. It acts like a warm sleeping bag for your hands when you need it the most.
Inspired by the Vallerret founders’ days of dog mushing in the Arctic, you too can stay toasty warm in the harshest of winter environments, and continue capturing your images.
Convenient Glove Harness
The super convenient Glove harness allows you to secure your Alta Arctic Mitts behind your back or let them hang loose when you don't need them. With the Glove Harness, you can keep your gloves secure but still within immediate reach, ready to face challenging Arctic conditions.
Carabiner Clip to Keep Things Tidy
Embrace convenience during your Arctic photography expeditions with the Alta Arctic Mitt Photography Glove's carabiner clip. Attach the gloves to each other, to your camera bag, backpack, or belt loop, ensuring easy accessibility whenever you require quick protection or warmth.
FlipTech Thumb & FlipTech Mitt Cap
Maintain control over your camera with the FlipTech Thumb & FlipTech Mitt Cap. Flip back your thumb cap or zip open the Mitt Cap to expose your finger glove if needed, providing full access to your camera controls and dials.
Designed for: Arctic Winter Conditions
PLEASE NOTE: Inner Gloves are NOT included.
These mitts are a perfect companion to other Vallerret gloves and keep my hands very comfortable and well-protected in extreme cold conditions!

30 days after ordering I am still awaiting delivery. The tracking link shows they are in a depot somewhere and when I contacted Vallerett to cancel the order there was a mention that they were waiting for someone to pay customs duty. Not sure if there was a missed communication somewhere but something went wrong. Order in plenty of time for any trips you might need them for!
Please check your inbox for an email from us :)
Absolutely stunning gloves for deep winter. In my personal view, better than Skadi Zipper Mitts. The zip is better placed and more practical to use. The gauntlet cuffs are very long and roomy so they protect your wrists well with no issues to drag it over your jacket sleeves. Top shelf product!
Thank you for your review! We're so happy you love our Alta Arctic Mitt Photography Glove! We hope you enjoy using them this winter!
I suffer from Reynauds so easily get very cold fingers which are then useless. This mitt which goes over my gloves is great and takes heaters inside without trouble and solves the issue
Thank you for your review of the Alta Arctic Mitt. We're happy to hear they are keeping you toasty and warm over your gloves :)
