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.

        Better than I imagined. Kept my hands warm in the low 30s while offering great dexterity. Thin enough that handling my camera felt confident and natural. Fingertip covering easily removed and reapplied. I found it even easy to just pull back with my teeth with hands full.

        These do the job in cold weather of protecting your hands against the elements. The thinsulate version really does much better than the fleece. A worthwhile investment

            Used for cold weather photography. The trigger finger and thumb have fold-back tips that allow you to better manipulate the camera controls, AND to keep your fingers warm when not shooting.

            I'm a landscape photographer working outdoors in all sorts of weather. These gloves work well in cool, but not cold temperatures... at 32 degrees they're okay for perhaps up to about an hour and often even less (half that) depending on the individual at which point one's fingertips become very numb. At lower temps in the teens, forget it, they won't keep your fingers warm for even 5 minutes. Somewhere buried on one of the websites for the product by other marketers was a comment about buying a size up with a liner for more warmth - a comment I wish that I'd seen sooner.

                I am a photogapher and filmmaker and have a hard time working in the cold. These gloves keep your hands very nice and cozy and I tried other brands but it seemed as fancy as they were they didn't keep out the wind and cold like these do. The only problem is that the womens sizes are very small and I had to get the mens size and it could be that like clothes nowadays these are made in China where sizing is an issue for many of us.

                I really like the gloves, but the finger covers on the fore fingers on both gloves are not as warm as the rest of the glove fingers. The material is thiner on these finger covers. The gloves are warm but I use these gloves inside of mittens that are open with a magnetic pull back, giving more protective warmth as is needed.

                    Order up a size larger than you expect. Even though it claims a snug/stretch fit, the finger openings are too short for comfort.

                    I bought these to wear while volunteering at the Delaware River helping people view Bald Eagles. Prior to buying them I would have take off my gloves to take pictures. Now I can wear these gloves and take a picture at the same time. The magnet holds the tips while I take the picture. Once I shot a picture I snap the tips back and my hands have remained warm.

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

                    As the winter has descended on my city, I was in need of some new gloves. My old over-the-counter gloves weren't cutting it, especially when I cut the finger tips off to mimic these (hey, I had to try the system out first!). The coldest I have shot in these was around freezing temps, low thirties. Even in the higher temps like 50s and 60s, they're just right.

                    These do run a bit snug, as most have mentioned. I ordered a Large and they pretty much fit just right (I would normally use a medium or small in latex gloves if that helps). The part that was a slight bother was around the thumb and index where they are exposed. These two openings have extra elastic and at first are way too tight. Eventually though, they wear in and open up. Try to stretch it out a bit if possible.

                    As for the exposed fingers being cold that many have mentioned, of course that is a factor--because your fingers are exposed to the cold! When the caps are on, they feel fine with no draft coming in on the fingers and stay plenty warm.

                    The cinch-wrist is handy too and keeps your gloves on tight. I do a lot of traveling and climbing when I shoot street and these stay put. The only drawback to the system is if your coat doesn't cover over the wrist, you will feel a draft if it's windy/extra cold. I usually stick to a hoodie and layer long-sleeves underneath, so maybe on a regular coat maybe this wouldn't be an issue. They are a bit bulky when digging through pockets for a phone or chapstick.

                    The magnets work great to keep the tips out of the way. They do stick though to other metals if you're just casually sitting down and metal (like say a bus stop or metal bench) is nearby lol. Nothing too crazy, more comical than anything when it happens.

                    Overall, these gloves are great and for the price are a pretty good bang for the buck. The extra grip on the palm side of the hand is just right too--not too tacky, not to slippery. I would definitely recommend copping a pair.

                        I'm often shooting wildlife in cold weather and have had to take my gloves off to get a proper feel of the shutter release/focus. These gloves allow me to just expose my index finger and thumb on both hands, allowing the rest of my hands to stay warm.

                          the gloves are wonderful on cold days when you are outside taking photos. Being able to have index fingertip and thumb available to work camera makes shooting so much easier. Standard gloves are bulky and must be removed for adjustment whereas these are made for adjusting without removal.

I have used half-finger gloves for cold weather photography, but they didn't cut it (little insulation and fingers become pop-cicles). The insulation in these does the trick, and the fingertip covering for the index and thumbs slips out of the way easily and returns same. The silicone material on the palm gives a good grip on the camera, and that is very reassuring. They are a snug fit, which is a good thing. I have no cons for these gloves.

                                  Love these gloves. Keeps my hands warm and allow me to use my camera with no problem. I also purchase a pair for one of my photography friends.
                                  Love the little magnet to keep the top of the glove finger out of my way.

                                  the two tips snap back quick enough and the magnets hold them in place as advertised . I am a little concerned about the magnets and their possibe affect on perhaps the memory card

                                  My only complaint is that I didn't think of these first. Great for working in cold weather.

                                  I have big hands: max span from thumb to little finger is 9 in [a 13th on a keyboard]. The large size is a little tight but in this case you don't want anything extra flapping about.

                                  The peel back and magnetic design is quite clever and maintains fingertip access. They simply aren't all that warm. I've been using them in high 30 degree weather and, while they are better than bare handed, not much more so, and I wear them all the time because I might want to use my phone to take a picture.

                                    When I saw these, I knew I wanted them, what with winter coming. Since the weather turned colder for the season, I wear them EVERY time I go out to shoot! And they have veryu nearly lived up to every hope I had about them. They are warmer than their thinness would make you think they could be, unless you know your Thinsulate. They fit "like a glove". (Sorry.) They fit as well as I could hope for, my hands are size L, and these give me one of the best fits I've ever found. So far, after a couple months of almost daily use, they are showing themselves to be quite durable. I wish they made some even heavier, warmer ones for those sub-zero temps many winter nights will be get down to. But, this pair is my "go-with" gloves, and have been good down to below freezing. The main thing I have to be critical about them, was something I anticipated just looking at the picture. The fore-finger and thumb tips are thinner and thus, not as warm as the rest of the fingers. But, that was the trade-off I expected had to be made in order to get the dexterity and ease of use. So, that is not any real sort of ding against them. One has to understand the limits of each piece of their gear, that's all.The magnets in the thumb and finger can also take a little getting used to. I'll try to grab my car keys with them on, but the keys will stick the one of the magnets, and end up stuck to me, but just out of reach. (Sometimes it can be a bit funny how that works out.) So, in conclusion: Yes, I would recommned them to a friend. I'd recommend them to aquaintances and strangers, too. And, yes, I will be buying them, or ones very, very similar, again. I've been very pleased with mine.
