      I have tried various strategies for keeping my hands warm while shooting in the cold: everything from knit gloves (so they aren't bulky), to fingerless gloves so I don't lose dexterity in handling the camera. Anything that kept my hand sufficiently warm left me with difficulties manipulating camera buttons. Anything that allowed me freedom to use the camera left my hands cold.

      These gloves truly do give the best of both worlds. I especially like that only one thumb and finger tip are exposed to the air, keeping the rest of my hands warm. It's incredibly easy to flip the glove tips out of the way when I need to shoot, so I can wait until right before the shot to do it, so I no longer have to have my fingers exposed to the cold "just in case". The magnets that hold the finger tips out of the way are placed well, so they pretty much do the grabbing for you.

      I had to return the women's large size and order the men's medium instead, due to fit. I don't fault the gloves for that, though. My hands are on the large size, so it was not totally unexpected. By checking the website for the manufacturer I discovered that one size up from women's large is men's medium. They are a little wider, with slightly longer fingers.

      Great gloves but order one size larger.

      Great lightweight gloves and perfect for photography, but they were too tight. I had to return them and order the next size larger.

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

        I bought these for shooting outdoors in the cold & wind. They fit snug as described, which is exactly what I was looking for while carrying my gear. The magnetic fingertips are awesome for fiddling with the dials on the camera, and the palm had a gripping patch that was useful as I maneuvered around the site where I was shooting. They were not extremely thick, so I may invest in a thicker insulation type for trips to extremely cold climates. However, I will probably order an additional pair to use for just go to gloves. Seem to be quality made

          Solid pair of gloves. The cutout fingertips are quite nice. Product seems to be very durable. Stitching is solid. I haven't had a chance to wear these out in the rain/snow yet but they work quite well in the wind at keeping your hands warm. Sizing seems a tad bit on the small size so if in doubt, go up on your sizes, as least for women's wear.

              Use in photo situations where it's too cold to shoot with bare hands. Easy to move the finger tips over. Someone mentioned to me about magnets and the close proximity with the memory cards in camera. I haven't had an issue.

                    The first day of wearing the gloves I needed to change the hook on the dogs collar..it was snowy and cold. with out this feature. I would have removed my glove. I didn't realize how useful this little feature would become. no, my phone didn't ring, buy I needed to wipe snow off my eyes, one finger was all I needed.

                    the fit was perfect for the fingers( I ordered a size larger than usual)but the thumb was a little long.

                      I went by previous reviews and ordered a size up (large) and ended up exchanging them for a medium, which fit perfectly. My hands are about average in size, so I would order your regular size. B&H was great about the exchange. Seemed to happen almost overnight with no extra shipping charges except I had to pay return shipping. The quality of the gloves is good, but I'm not sure I'd say great, but they are nice and warm, and comfortable to wear. I love the flip back thumb & index finger for camera use. That works perfectly. Overall pleased, especially for the discounted price! Very pleased with B&H.

                            I bought these to use with both video and DSLR cameras. I have been using glove liners with fingerless mittens. I always have cold hands. These seem like they will be good in moderately cold temperatures but in temperatures below 20, my hands are not staying warm with these gloves. The sizes seem to run small but the fit is nice. The magnet that holds the folded finger tip back doesn't seem to stay put when I bend my hands.

                              After doing a fair amount of online research for cold weather gloves, I tried on several pairs of Freehands cold weather gloves in the store, both men's and women's but there was no Women's large. Usually I wear size medium adult gloves but the medium these gloves seem to run small and the medium did not cover my entire palm. I ordered a Women's large and man's Medium and found the former fit quite well. I tried calling the manufacturer for more information as to fit, but they never answered their phone.

                              As to the cold: I wore the gloves to take pictures outdoors in New England with no liner gloves underneath and they were adequate for a limited time, although my thumb and forefinger, the two fingers exposed when I pulled back the glove tips, got cold. For truly frigid weather something more would be needed. One can click the shutter even with the gloves fully on, without removing the tips.

                              These are also comfortable, and less bulky than some of my other gloves or mittens, for everyday fairly cold weather wear. I don't know how long they will last but they seem well made, and the price was significantly lower than those from AquaTech.

                                I needed gloves that will keep my hands warm and will give me the freedom to work with the camera.
                                These gloves were just what I needed.
                                I love the magnets that hold to tip of the fingers.
                                The only problem I had was that the two open fingers were perfect but the other three were a little bit too big.

                                      definitely runs small

                                      The design of these gloves is fine and they are certainly warmer than any alternative I have found! Unfortunately, B&H only gives a sizing chart for the men's gloves and not the women's(!?!) I usually wear a women's large so I decided to chance it and they were too tight. I exchanged for a men's medium, which was well within my hand measurement on the men's sizing chart and they were still snug but a little bigger. Overall, a good idea and a good glove but they do run small.
