Awesome

I looked at a lot of these gloves in the store and none felt as nice as this material! Very comfortable and well designed.

In terms of functionality and quality, these were exactly the photography gloves I was looking for -- but then I realized it had one major flaw: the magnets (at the index finger and thumb, designed for holding the thumb and forefinger tips when they pull back) get *extremely* cold on colder days.

I noticed that while the rest of my fingers were kept relatively warm by the gloves, my index and thumbs are always quickly frozen stiff because of the magnets -- they act like a little ice cubes on your thumbs and index fingers.  

It's bad enough that if I'm outdoor for a longer duration on a colder day, it's actually a lot better to take off the gloves once the magnets get cold (and being metallic, they get cold really quickly).

Do Not Fit, any size.

By StonerSR25

from OHIO

Verified Buyer

I bought a medium at first and they did not fit, so I exchanged them for small ones and they still did not fit.
I buy Oakley and also military gloves and they always fit, so what is the problem here? (CHINA or B&H)

My second pair

By Billiam

from Chico CA

Verified Buyer

My wife borrowed my first pair,and they went away.Convenient timing with Christmas coming,I ordered another pair.These are well-made,and the features are useful since they allow for using index finger and thumb for devices without removing the gloves.Except for very cold days,these are the gloves I wear regularly.

Great Gloves: Would Recommend

By Hunter

from Nashville, TN

Verified Buyer

Excellent product, very efficient and keeps hands clean while still allowing easy access to your shooting fingers. Highly recommend. Gloves fight so well, not nessecary to always expose finger. They do not work on touch screens though.

      Very good gloves, nice grip on the camera and super useful magnets that hold the finger tips back. The gloves are well made. They keep me warm but on a really cold day, you should make sure to have another pair of gloves when you're walking as the edge of your finger will freeze!

          I have small hands so I got the sm that I had to return, exchanged for a medium and they are still very tight. Nice gloves though so I am keeping.

          Do not expect to wear these gloves in freezing temps for extended periods of time. They are very thin and like I said above tight. I wore them yesterday to pick up daughter from school, it was 30º F and after ten minutes outside I could feel finger tips going numb.

          For quick camera setups and adjustments these will work great, but have warming gloves around for anything longer

              • Cold Weather

              I've struggled in the past with gloves and photography. I used to wear a pair of fingerless gloves but unfortunately ALL the tips of my fingers were cold. I've tried thin gloves, but found they do not keep my hands as warm.

              These gloves are wonderful. They keep my hands warm and if my two exposed fingers get cold I just stick my hand in my pocket for a few minutes.

              Not sure about ladies sizes, so I got a men's small and they fit perfectly.

                  Used while video taping football games. Keep my hands nice and warm while allowing the finger and thumb to operate the camera. The only concern is the finger openings are held open with magnets. Since I am working with a recording device, have magnets near by isn't ideal. Velcro might have been better

                    It is really comfortable and thick. Holding a camera may feel weird at first but slowly becomes fine. I strongly recommend this item for all those who work in cold conditions.

                    This glove adequately protects against having cold fingers. I used these gloves in 30 degree temperatures and felt toasty. The tips easily slide on and off and are conveniently held away via a small magnet. It is easy to separate the magnetic catch once done and the finger covers quickly add warmth back to the exposed finger tips. Love these gloves. The only con is that they do feel a bit stiff but they break in over time. I had originally ordered medium and though they fit correctly on most of my fingers, my 4th and 5th finger (pinky and ring finger) we're too long. So, I sent them back and ordered a small and all fingers now fit perfectly.
