A heavier duty photography glove, providing extra protection against the elements
The Ipsoot gloves proved to be what was needed. They are very warm and do a chance to free up finger tips for making camera adjustments in the cold. The fit was just right and were ordered based on the measurement guidelines given in the online listing for the gloves.
Being a frail old man whose fingers would get cold just opening the fridge door I needed some gloves that would prevent frostbite when getting the butter out. Have to say I'm impressed. I can now not only get the butter out of the fridge I can also venture into that arctic hell that is my freezer! And best of all my fingers stay toasty warm.
OK now onto the serious review. These gloves are warm, windproof and water resistant. They kept my fingers warm and the flip back Thumb & Index finger tips are brilliant for using the camera (or countless other tasks). The addition of the magnets do a great job of holding folded tips out of the way. Theres enough of an overhang in the material that when you have the finger tip covers closed the wind doesn't find its way through. So your fingers stay warm. All things considered these are the best gloves I've ever bought.
For years , when the temperature dropped below +5 C, the tips of my fingers feel like they were about to fall off. After several kinds of gloves that didn't do diddly squat, i found myself filling my shopping cart at the Heat Company website.
Just before i had to decide wich kind , i came across some photographers i follow on Youtube which had a different kind of gloves. After pausing several shots and with my face pressed to the screen i could see they all were wearing Vallerret gloves. I took a gamble and went for the Ipsoot because i love the cold weather , but my hands can't stand it so i needed the ones that could beat the cold.
Two days after they arrived , the temperature dropped to -11 C during our walk with the dogs. After a 2 hour trip , i could still feel my fingers , better yet, i had actually warm hands and still came home with over a 500 photos. I can't tell anything about durability, but man these gloves are the best invention since sliced bread. Great stuff !!!!!!!!!
Fantastic to hear our gloves are such great addition to your daily winter trips and walks (and just right behind the sliced bread! :D). Happy winter shooting Cyril :D
I have been researching photography gloves for a while now and came across the ipsoot photography gloves. I’m so happy that I found these gloves from Vallerret, they are perfect. Well made, practical and warm. Delivery was quick with excellent communication. Highly recommend these gloves and the company. Great work guys... Thank you
These gloves are excellent. Very obviously designed by photographers for photographers. Windproof and waterproof. They do take a little bit of getting used to but that is normal for any good glove anyway. I have worn them recently in stormy and windy conditions and performed perfectly. Highly recommended.

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 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.
