Freehands Men's Stretch Thinsulate Gloves (Large, 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 large 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 Large
Measurement taken on the dominant hand just below the knuckles should be between 9.5 to 10.0" (24.1 to 25.4 cm)

    For a while now I've been using fingerless gloves during cold-weather shooting. This would, of course, allow me to access my camera's controls rather easily - however it would also lead to freezing finger-tips and discomfort rather quickly. I wanted something that would keep my hands and fingers warm... while still allowing me to access my camera's controls with the accuracy that only a bare finger can offer.

    These gloves do the trick perfectly!

    The fit is very good... and the lining keeps my hands quite warm, even in freezing conditions.

    It is very easy to flip back the thumb and index finger covers... and the built-in magnets help keep the flaps secured and out of the way, so there isn't the annoyance of a flapping finger cover.

    These gloves are very comfortable... and I find that movement feels very natural - and not restrictive in the slightest.

    If I had to come up with a "con" - I would say that the lining in the thumb and index-finger flaps is a bit skimpy. Normally that isn't a problem... but in extremely cold weather I find that I notice that it's thinner in those fingers. Of course, in extremely cold weather I don't want to be shooting anyway - so that isn't a problem for me. I would imagine that if they "beefed-up" the insulation in the flaps it would make them more difficult to remove and put back on... and then we'd be complaining about that instead!

    These gloves are so comfortable that I don't just wear them for shooting... they are my primary winter gloves... allowing me to easily use other items such as my iPhone, iPod, outdoor ATM machines, etc.. I wear them just about every day... and have no complaints about their comfort, quality, construction or durability.

    I highly recommend them!

    I bought this gloves less than a month for this winter and when I got them, it didn't fit. My hand is size LARGE and I bought the L size.

    The first week using, it did open a hole in the seam.

    I'm not satisfied and I wouldn't buy again.

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

      Really nice gloves but the sizing is confusing. I ordered a large pair thinking they would fit but had to give them away to a friend with smaller hands. Ordered an XL pair and they're still a bit too tight. Can't wait to get it right though because from what my friend tells me they are nice and warm.

            Glove is warm and wish I got it a size bigger. The removable finger tips are cool but your fingers will go numb real quick. I used these in below freezing temps.

                        These gloves are highly useful while shooting outdoors in the winter. Only the thumb and forefinger on each hand are exposed. They use little magnets to hold the finger and thumb flaps back, and they flip back quickly for a relatively quick shot. They do tend to fit snugly, so perhaps order a size larger than you normally would. They are well-made, warm, and relatively wind-proof.

                                We ordered two pairs of these gloves. One for me and one for my wife. Shooting football Friday night Temperature was 29 degrees.Our hands were freezing. We even tried hot packs. Palms were warm where the hot packs were, but our fingers were frozen. We are requesting a return. I have every faith B&H will make it right.

                                    Fit well. Solid construction. the openings on the fingers and thumbs work well. Would recommend the gloves to anyone looking to keep their hands warm while shooting.

                                        The 2014 winter has been extrmely cold and my hands have paid the price. I needed something that I could easliy get to my buttons on my camera without having to expose my entire hand. Came across these gloves at B&H and I gave them a shot. After having them on for a photoshoot at night, outside, I realized I should have picked up a pair several years ago. They do a great job of keeping on my fingers nice and warm, while allowing me to make the adjustments that are needed to get the shot.

                                            Photography enthusiast. I have used the gloves in 20 degree weather. They are a blessing.

                                              These gloves are a good idea, but poorly executed. I used them when I went to North Pole, NY (near Whiteface Mountain) and I ended up using small 1$ cotton gloves under these. When you're taking pictures with your index and thumb out, it's extremely cold for them, then you close them so they are protected, but your fingers are so cold they can't get hotter, being painful. Not really useful. The other fingers were fine though, the rest of the gloves are good.

                                              Better off getting full gloves with good grip on the fingers to be able to control your camera. These were pretty much a waste of money.

                                                My hands can get into trouble if they are exposed for long times even in temperatures in the 40s (F). These are light/medium weight gloves that I rate for my own use down to freezing and just a little past, depending on how warm the sun might be. YMMV In order for the finger flap trick to work, the flaps are less well insulated and the index finger and thumb pads just feel colder when the glove is worn normally. As mentioned elsewhere, the sewn-in welts associated with the glove openings are evident and some might find them uncomfortable. I don't particularly find them problematic, nor the magnets on the back of the fingers. It seems counterintuitive but these gloves have a neat trick up their sleeve: they are thin enough and their surfaces are slippery enough that it is relatively easy to retrieve things from pockets with them on. Also works for stuffing your hands in warm pockets. This is huge when it's already colder than you had hoped, your hands are complaining and you need your car keys (or a lens cap, or something..).
                                                Four stars - durability to be determined.
