Just returned from a trip round Iceland where we had wind, snow and sub zero temperatures every day, so the gloves got a full road test. I have a woman's small-ish hand and found the 'S' size fitted perfectly. The mitten/glove combination worked well generally although teeth were needed to help zip/unzip! Slight issue with the thumb 'flip' not staying back... think the magnet needs to be stronger. The side of the mitten clipped back easily onto the press stud. I was pleased at how they kept my hands warm. The inner gloves alone would not have been sufficient and after a while of using the camera, even the finger and thumb got cold. The 'touch screen' finger and thumb tips worked ok but I personally do not need to use that facility too much. It was very useful having the mittens on elasticated wristbands and the palm grip on them was very good. For overall warmth and practicality, these are the best gloves I have ever worn, even without using a camera, and I really recommend them for seriously cold environments. You get what you pay for.
Orered a pair of women's gloves Medium; received two gloves correct model but one was Medium the other Small. However with Anna's help matter was resolved just in time for our trip to Lofoten.
While I have not yet had the chance to test Vallerret's Women's Nordic Photography Gloves in the field, I've worn them at home & they feel wonderful, very comfortable & cozy with great access for the thumbs & index finger. Can't wait to test them out in Nome, Alaska soon!
I tried the women's Nordic Photography gloves in 2 sizes - medium and large and both didn't fit. It looks like the men's version was just shrunk down rather than actually designing a glove specifically for female photographers. I was heading to an adventure tourism photography assignment in Norway and thought these gloves could have been really great for the winter conditions. But sadly the fit did not work. The gloves aren't long enough and the come up short on the wrist. It looks like they were designed for someone with wide palms and short fingers. Also a place to put hand warmers would have been really great. It would have been nice to see a glove designed from the ground up for women with women's unique body physiology needs.
I wore my gloves for the first time today and am very happy with them. They're a comfortable fit, quite lightweight and flexible, but warm. The finger holes are a bit tight but I'm thinking they'll give a bit with use. They allow me to easily operate my camera with warm hands, which is the important thing, and being tight means there isn't a big gap for the wind to get in. I was between sizes S and M and ordered S, but the fingers were too short. It was really quick and easy to get them swapped for the next size up, though, just had to foot the postage cost. Unfortunately the replacements had a faulty magnet, so had to go back again. The service was excellent again though - no quibble, fast delivery and my postage refunded.
