Luxurious and unique gloves

Super happy with the Urbex gloves… They are beautifully made with lots of attention to detail, and have a good fit. The leather is lovely and soft, while still being hard wearing enough to stand up to good usage.
Temperature wise, I found the gloves to be perfect for winter in the UK in and around London, in dry conditions. I also find I wear them a lot, even when not using my camera, as the fingerless design is really nice just being about town and using my phone. I also really like wearing them as driving gloves, as they are not too think, and I can steel get the road feel, while keeping toasty and looking stylish!

These gloves are designed as for “urban use”, so if I was looking for gloves to use in rain, or in much colder snowy conditions, I would need to use a different, warmer product. However, I’ve found for what they are designed for, they are a market leading product in this category.
Great job Valleret!

Hi Jay! We're stoked you love our new Urbex gloves! Happy urban photo adventures & toasty warm hands! :D
Good pair of gloves.

This is my second pair of gloves from Vallerret. These are thinner compared to the previous ones I got. They work well and keep my hands warm,

Thrilled to hear you like the gloves :D Warm hands and happy winter shooting!
URBEX - My New Go To Gloves!!

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!

Was a pleasure to help Andrew! And thrilled to hear you are loving the gloves :D Toasty warm hands and happy winter shooting!
URBEX... great!

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!

Good but could be better

Love the look of the glove. They remind me of a pair of driving gloves.

However, there are 4 issues that I have with this glove that I would like to see addressed.

1. The palm area could be a little longer. The glove is tight around the base of my hand where the elastic is (my hands are not large). Pic 3.
2. The straps are not long enough so I need to pull it tight for it to snap. This is very uncomfortable because it is too tight around my wrist. I do not close the straps and may cut them off. I would have preferred a strap that could be adjusted like on the Skadi Zipper Mitt. I realize that this would change the look of the glove but it would be more comfortable. Pic 1.
3. The magnets on the index finger are not strong enough to stay attached when bending my finger. It doesn't interfere with shooting but is an annoyance. Pic 2.
4. As mentioned by others, they are not as warm as I expected even in mild winter weather (mid 30's).



  1. Measure around the widest part of your hand with a relaxed open palm.
  2. Measure from base of hand to the tip of the middle finger.

NB: We design our gloves to be snug for best camera feel possible. This sizing chart reflects snuggly fitted gloves.
