  • The Arctic is no joke, and this glove takes your warmth seriously.

    Like a sleeping bag for your hand, the (UNISEX) Alta Over-Mitt slips over any of the Vallerret gloves models adding that extra warmth and keeping your hands heated when you need it most.

    Inspired by the Vallerret founders’ days dog mushing in the arctic, you too can stay toasty warm in the harshest of winter environments whilst capturing your images.

Not pleased

Gloves did not fit well, even though I measured and used the company’s measurements for fit. They were way to big and bulky to use in Yellowstone with temperature of -19. Even with a wool liner my hands were cold. I wasted my money. I do not recommend these over mits or the wool liner. Don’t waste hard earned money.

hi Linda! thanks for taking the time to write a review. Alta Over Mitts are like a cushion for your main gloves (Markhof or Ipsoot for example) - they keep you warm while you're waiting for that perfect shot and don't need to use your hands :) If the sizing is not correct, just let us know and we can arrange for a size exchange :) cheers, Anna

Very Warm Glove

The Over-Mitt is a blessing where I live, we can get down to - 30 (celcius) with a wind chill. The gloves are bulky so they can fit another pair of gloves in them, the magnet has a little trouble staying together because of that. They're worth that little pain for the warmth and accessibility for photography.

Christmas present

I am looking forward to using them. At this moment, they are boxed up and wrapped for Christmas Morning. My plan is to use them on the trail of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon at the end of January.

    Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please 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!

    What size should I get if I'm between sizes?

    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 you the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.

    Should I size up for my liner 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 chose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
