Freehands Men's Stretch Thinsulate Gloves (Medium, Black)

You Pay: $29.95
Product Highlights
  • Waterproof / Windproof Back
  • Thinsulate Insulation for Warmth
  • Magnetic Finger Tips
  • Silicon Gripped Palm
  • Designed for a Snug Fit

The medium black Men's Stretch Thinsulate Gloves from Freehands are designed to be used when photographing outdoors in cold weather. The gloves have a waterproof and windproof backing and are lined with Thinsulate to keep you warm in the winter while being lightweight enough to wear in milder weather.

When photographing in cold weather you can open the finger tips so that you can more easily access small buttons on your camera, which might be difficult to access if you were wearing normal gloves. When you need to access buttons on your camera, simply pull back the thumb and forefinger tips of the gloves to reveal your fingers. The tips are secured in place by magnets until you are ready to cover your fingers again. The palm patch features a silicon grip to prevent your camera from slipping. The gloves are designed to fit snugly so you can hold and operate your camera easily. For a looser fit, order the next size up.

Size Medium
Measurement taken on the dominant hand just below the knuckles should be between 8.5 to 9.0" (21.6 to 22.9 cm)

      I ordered these from B&H, because during a recent photographic outing during a winter storm I was stuck with using my older non-waterproof knit style photographic gloves. As a result my hands became quite cold both because they weren't waterproof nor well insulated and I had to cut my work short because of that.

      Although I would really consider these "cool weather" gloves, that is down to about 35°F, because below that you will probably need something heavier such as the Freehand Ski/Snowboard Gloves. However, I decided to keep them anyway because the dexterity is so good and in my area above 40°F is a lot more commonplace. For example, it is relatively easy to handle things like car keys without having to either take them off or pull the tips back.

      As described, they are designed for a snug fit and so they really shouldn't be used as a size reference where the Freehands Ski/Snowboard Gloves are concerned (that fit looser), which I found out the hard way.

      The bottom line:

      I decided to keep these anyway because of the points I made above and to just go ahead and order the Freehands Ski/Snowboard in addition for colder conditions. I am still rating them a five because they accomplish what they are supposed to accomplish and because the price is so reasonable.

      I just used these during 20 degree temps in Joshua Tree. The gloves were ok, but even with the index finger and thumb covered, they were freezing cold. So, as you remove the tips to use them, they're too cold to use. I found myself just letting my hands get warm in my jacket pockets, then using them without gloves for a few minutes.. I would not purchase these again and will look for warmer gloves.

        Order a size larger than you think you need. Snug fit, maintaines flexablity of the thumb and for finger with the peel back tops.
        Not for sub zero conditions 30-40 would be fine.
        You might wounder why I need these gloves if I live in Florida. Bought them for a trip to Antarica.

          Okay, yeah its summer... anything is warm when it is 95 degrees outside... but these gloves were amazing. Hand heated up right away and they are well designed and appear to be durable. By far the coolest things I have seen for photographers. Genius!

                Gloves are well made - love the way the thumb and index finger covered roll back and are held in place when open. Since I got it in July I won't know to what temperature I will feel comfortable but feeling the thickness, it should be good down into the 20's - beyond that, I don't know and don't care to find out - I am from sunny Arizona.

                      I got these for Winter wildlife photography, so I will have to wait to see how warm they are in the very cold Mid-West temps. They are, however, very comfortable and seem to be well made. I love the magnets that hold the finger flaps back so they are not just flying around. I have already recommended them to some of my photog friends!

                        These gloves are great and comfortable. They felt a bit snug when I first got them but are breaking in nicely. The covering over the index finger and thumb don't provide a huge amount of insulation so these aren't going to replace your everyday gloves, but for what they are designed for they are unbeatable.

                          These gloves fit me poorly. The index finger was too short and I ordered a size up!
                          If I went by the sizing instructions, I was a small. However, they did not fit. I would strongly advise ordering a size up .

                          They are not for cold weather! I wish I had known before I went on a swinter photo shoot.

                                I like the design and the feel once you put it on. As for how it perform in cold, I do not expect too much. Cold weather is cold weather. I do not think any good use glove can stand frigid cold for long period. You need another pair for the sheer cold when you do not have to handle the camera.

                                  Comments about Freehands Men's Stretch Thinsulate Gloves (Medium, Black):

                                  I ordered these from B&H, because during a recent photographic outing during a winter storm I was stuck with using my older non-waterproof knit style photographic gloves. As a result my hands became quite cold both because they weren't waterproof nor well insulated and I had to cut my work short because of that.

                                  Although I would really consider these "cool weather" gloves, that is down to about 35°F, because below that you will probably need something heavier such as the Freehand Ski/Snowboard Gloves. However, I decided to keep them anyway because the dexterity is so good and in my area above 40°F is a lot more commonplace. For example, it is relatively easy to handle things like car keys without having to either take them off or pull the tips back.

                                  As described, they are designed for a snug fit and so they really shouldn't be used as a size reference where the Freehands Ski/Snowboard Gloves are concerned (that fit looser), which I found out the hard way.

                                  The bottom line:

                                  I decided to keep these anyway because of the points I made above and to just go ahead and order the Freehands Ski/Snowboard in addition for colder conditions. I am still rating them a five because they accomplish what they are supposed to accomplish and because the price is so reasonable.

                                  I bought this to use outside photography during winter. There is tremendous amount of cold air coming through thumb and forefinger tips because there is no real seal. One will still need to wear a thin glove underneath.

                                  These fit well (though a tad smaller than hoped) and would be fine for temperatures above freezing. I used them for a hour just at the freezing point and my hands got cold pretty quickly.

                                      The grip and the pull back fingers are terrific, the fit is a little tight but I like that (medium) They aren't the warmest of gloves, even though, they are better than nothing in the cold, the palm grip is also good. I left off 1 star because of them not being as warm as I would like them and because of the tight fit, even though I like it, they are made small

                                        Keeps your fingers warm and flexible until ready.

                                          I use these to shoot football in cold weather. Anything around 35-40 degrees has felt fine, but I haven't tested in colder weather yet. I love how much flexibility you have with these gloves. They aren't bulky and hard to move in at all. There are magnets to hold the fingers into place when you pull that piece back.
