These gloves fit well and do their job as described. As others have mentioned, some negatives regarding these gloves would be that the magnets don't really work. Yes, they hold the finger and thumb flap folded back initially, but once you flex your finger or thumb, the magnets no longer hold. They are thicker than liners, but certainly not the best insulated gloves -- I'll likely be using liners inside on days colder than 30 degrees. Also, the so-called silicone grip doesn't grip all that well. Overall though, I'm happy with them for mildly cold days with not much wind and are good for general use even for those days you're not shooting. I'd still buy the if I was to do it over again.

The first time I went on a shoot, I was disappointed to find that these gloves were little better than my old pair of 'normal' gloves. My issues were several. First, I found that it wasn't easy to remove the flaps off my thumb and index finger while wearing the gloves. Mostly, this was because the gloves are rather bulky and lack a decent grip. Second, once I got the flaps off my finger tips, I discovered that the magnets that hold the flaps down are ineffective, allowing the flap to come loose whenever I bent my finger or thumb. Third, the silicone grip palms are rather slick, and don't provide much grip. Finally, and this is my fault for not reading the description closely enough, I expected trim fitting gloves, and these are somewhat bulky due to the inner lining. On the positive side, these gloves did keep my fingers warm in twenty degree temperatures. Sad to say I returned them and will keep looking for a pair that keeps my hands from freezing and allows me to work the controls on my cameras.

          B&H put this item that I had on "add to kit" list on sale. Am an "advanced" photographer - good photographers' gloves. The magnetic "keep away" feature is excellent. (NO gloves will help exposed fingers -0degF). I would pay 2x what I paid for these, then take a Jewish holiday.

            This will be great for cold weather. They're not meant for extreme cold because the lining is thin, but should keep the chill off in chilly conditions. I already have the mittens with the exposed fingers, but not the thumb. Wanted something with only exposed forefinger and thumb and these fit the bill perfectly. The tackiness will provide great grip too.

                I needed a air of gloves that would work for photography during the cold months where I live in the mountains of Colorado. I have only used them a coule of times , however they seem to perform well. The soft shell material is flexible enough to use and still provides adequate warmth without bulk. The "pull back finger tips" allow you to have access to the camera controls while still keeping the remainder of your hands warm. However, they are slightly on the small size and the "pull back finger tips" are snug. I'm thinking they will stretch with use.

                  Love that the fingers have magnets to hold back the top of the glove finger when you are using them. They are super warm but a little bulky but I'll take bulky for the warmth.

                          The gloves are OK, but over priced even at the sale price I paid. The fleece lining is very thin and it is stretching it saying the are suitable for moderate warmth.

                            The gloves were given by me as a gift to my daughter's boyfriend who is a photojournalist. The cold spell that brought subzero weather to the midwest was his chance to put the to the test.

                            They worked as advertised!

                              I use these for winter nature photography. The tips are easy to manipulate and the magnets hold the tips back securely. They are also nice and warm. Only issue I have is that they're a bit snug. I would have preferred XL.

                                Great fit and function. I first used these gloves at -11 degrees, not designed for that extream but kept me warm enough to function! I really don't think most gloves would do any better.
