      When needing to keep my hand warm but still operate a camera, use binoculars, or write, I have been using fingerless gloves that have a flip-up cap to cover the fingertips as needed. These gloves seemed like an interesting alternative, and because they were on sale when I bought them I decided to buy then as an experiment. So far they seem to be well made, and in temperatures a little below freezing they keep my palms and wrists comfortably warm. The palms are grippy, but not sticky, which I like. In cooler temperatures being able to expose just 2 fingertips is something that I also like. However, the caps over these fingertips are not designed well: there is always a slight gap that isn't covered because the caps do not overlap the bases of the gloves' fingers. The gaps are wide enough that my thumb- and index fingertips were uncomfortably cold after an hour outside at temperatures just below freezing. As a result, in temperatures more than a little below freezing I will probably wear these gloves with an over-mitten to keep my fingers warm. For me, these are cool-weather, and not cold-weather gloves.

      Comments about Freehands Men's Ragg Wool Knit/Thinsulate Glove (S/M):

      These are very thick, warm gloves with thumb and index finger slots so you can use them while holding a camera. They work, but, be careful, on the pair I received the size ran small. I take a large glove from every manufacturer I've ever bought from, but with these gloves I wish I had ordered an XL. I get about 10 to 15 minutes out of them before their too tight to wear. Had I not tossed out the tags (thinking they'd fit like every other pair of gloves I've purchased in the last 20 years) they would have gone back.

      So, bottom line - warm, useful, but tight - go one size up or keep the glove tagged until you find out for yourself.

      Comments about Freehands Men's Ragg Wool Knit/Thinsulate Glove (S/M):

      These gloves seen like a godsend, on concept. Additionally, they are rather inexpensive.

      But the romance wears off when you start to use them. Firstly, I would gladly pay double, for gloves of might higher quality in terms of fit, finish, workmanship and consistency. I bought multiple pairs as I tend lose gloves and I can say that the fit varied a lot, especially the placement of the magnets and the size/comfort of the holes for the thumb and index finger. In the case of the magnet it matters because the folded tip has to be actively stretched on one glove, to contact the magnet and remain "open". This of course squeezes your finger a little as the glove hole is stressed. Plus, you need to have your other hand free to reposition that flipped tip properly.

      Moreover, the inner liner has some variation in terms of the amount of material and its tautness. My index finger on one glove always bunches up the linger near the flex/hole and I have to work it back into alignment, otherwise there's no getting the glove fully on that finger.

      In terms of warmth, these won't do below 35°F for any extended period of time. But they do help and are better than bare hands. Unfortunately since trapped, warmed air is what makes a glove warm, there's little of that going on at the thumb and index because the break doesn't "seal" much as we're talking about a knit glove here. So even with the little caps placed on your fingertips, said tips will rapidly start to feel like you're not wearing any glove at all. But this might be a problem any similar glove design might face.

      To summarize: I would pay twice as much for a better made, more consistent glove, with improved performance. But for what these cost, they are preferable to going without.

      Comments about Freehands Men's Ragg Wool Knit/Thinsulate Glove (S/M):

      I am a photographer, I shoot a lot of long exposures in the late-night/early-morning hours in the New Mexican desert where the temperatures are on average 30 degrees below what they are in the day time. These gloves are nice a hefty feeling, but feel somewhat sloppily assembled. They feel sturdy and I am happy wiht them, but the on some of the fingers the different layers of the lining are more obvious than they should be, and also on one of the thumbs the hole is almost too tight so recapping my thumb tip is troublesome. And, one pinky on one hand is square and does not match any other finger on any other glove. I will keeps these, but will fix the pinky finger myself and will be happy with them after that.

      Comments about Freehands Men's Ragg Wool Knit/Thinsulate Glove (S/M):

      If you only need to expose your index finger tip or thumb once or twice in an hour, these are pretty good gloves. They are warm, thick, and grippy enough for use with a steering wheel. But they are too clumsy for any task that requires actual finger dexterity, such as managing a leash and waste bags at the same time. They get five stars for the former and one for the latter.

        Here in Norway at this time of year working outdoor is a challenge. I find gloves better then mittens for ease of handling equipment. These gloves have the added advantage of flip up finger and thumb tips. Great for doing things like changing memory cards and operating touch screens on cell phones.
        The tips contain magnets, so when they are open the magnets hold the tips out of the way. When tips a flipped over your finger/thumb, there is a small open slit, but curling your fingers helps to keep the cold out. They are only good in dry cold conditions

          This glove definitely makes your hands feel warm when you put them on. However, the finger covers for the index and thumb do not cover all the way, still allowing cold air to affect the fingers, but not as much.

                They work beautifully for my photographic needs. Allowing just enough skin to push the shutter and turn the dial. My only concern is that the finger length is a bit too long, although it does not constitute a concern.

                    Really handy for working in the cold. The thumb and forefinger have "pull-back" type tips that enable you to work with your camera, iPhone, or other device in the cold. They also contain small magnets that help to keep the tips pulled back and not in the way. Also very handy to have rubberized palms that help keep your grip secure. I found these gloves to be great, the only drawback is that the slit for the thumb and forefinger can be a bit big so don't expect those 2 fingertips to be perfectly warm and away from the cold even when the tips are closed and not in use.

                      These gloves are a "must have" if you do winter photography. They are warm and well made, and unlike ALL other gloves that I have tried, they allow full use of your thumb and index finger but also allow you to keep these fingers warm when not actively engaged in shooting. All the other winter photo gloves I have tried either leave all finger tips bare or keep the thumb enclosed. Neither of these arrangements is near as functional as that provided by these gloves.
                      A great addition to the camera bag!!

                        I've used it on the recent snowshoeing expedition and these gloves proved to be a good convenience. While my hands were well protected I was able to freely operate the camera.
                        The only thing that I'd do different if I had to buy a new pair to take a size smaller so they would fit a little bit more snug.

                        I use these to shoot my kids' soccer games, particularly in November, December and January. The tips of the thumbs and index fingers fold back, allowing you to manipulate the camera controls. That works well. My fingers were a little cold at the end of the game, but NOTHING like what they would have been without the gloves. I also put handwarmers in my palms, and that worked well. The construction on my pair of gloves was imperfect. One of the four finger openings isn't knitted properly. It's split, so you can see the insulation. But the gloves worked just fine -- it wasn't anywhere close to bad enough that I would consider returning them. I ordered the small size, and they were definitely small. Consider ordering up a size if you're on the fence. These gloves are a good gift for a mom or dad who shoots youth soccer or football in the fall/winter.

                          Comments about Freehands Men's Ragg Wool Knit/Thinsulate Glove (S/M):

                          Love the grip on the gloves for a steady hold of the camera in cold conditions. Very comfortable and the lining is comfy and warm. The two fingertips fold back easily for complete control of the camera.
