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.
FOR ULTIMATE VERSATILITY
The Skadi Zipper Mitt is a 2-in-1 glove that gives you all the warmth benefits of mittens along with full flexibility to operate your dials, whether you need one finger or four it is just a zip away.
Designed for both the videographer and photographer in mind, the Lukas Riedl Signature (UNISEX) model allows you to adapt to the conditions with this 2-in-1 Liner and Mitten. Access your fingers and thumb with a zip and flip tech.
Designed for: Deep Winter
PLEASE NOTE: Inner Gloves are included.
This guide will give you an idea of the warmth of a particular glove compared to our other models.
Mild day, Pow day or Arctic Winter conditions? Vallerret has you covered!
I’ve just returned from Iceland and tested these mittens with inner lining. I thought they were a perfect design, yet they were totally ineffective in the conditions we had on south coast Iceland. (-2C plus windchill made it feel like -18C.) The zip was too difficult to unzip when both hands were in mittens. Tried my teeth, but this didn’t work so had to take a mitten off. The liner then offered no warmth whatsoever once exposed. I still love the design and maybe for skiing, or Australian astro conditions they will still be useful. However, in Iceland I resorted to fingerless possum wool gloves over woollen mittens with hand warmers and this worked well. Got a lot of fluff in my mouth pulling off mittens! 😆
Sorry to hear the Skadi Zipper Mitt was not warm enough.
We would recommend our Hatchet or Tinden gloves for colder temperatures. These are our bulkiest and warmest five-fingered gloves, and they are built for cold, snowy conditions.
Thank you for your review! We're so glad you love the Skadi Zipper Mitt PSP!
These really do keep hands warm - but then they are mittens with liner gloves. Just wish the touch feature on the liner gloves worked every time
Thanks for your feedback!
We hope to have a new and improved version of the Skadi Mitts available later this year :)
For me the PSP gloves are thin enough for using all the buttons on my OM-1 camera. My left hand stays in the mitten all the time.
The right mitten covers my hand but for quick access I don’t close the zipper. Still warm enough. I don’t use the fixation-button when I take away the mitten,. If I use the button it becomes to bulky for me in handling the camera. I just remove enough of the mitten to be able to take pictures. This is also less time consuming. After taking a picture I immediatly cover my right with the mitten without closing the zipper.
Thanks for your feedback of the Skadi Zipper Mitt.
They are very versatile and we're glad to hear they are coming in handy for your photography.
Happy winter shooting :)
