I didn't even know about the concept of photography gloves until a few months ago. But after seeing a recommendation on a photography forum I thought I'd have a try. It occurred to me that I always take my gloves off in winter to photograph and there's no way I would ever be able to shoot spontaneously unless I left my normal gloves off. Anyway, the Markhof Pro 2.0 gloves seem very well made, I've had them out in minus temperatures without sunshine and they kept my hands warm enough and photography was much easier as I could leave my gloves on. I don't have experience with other photography gloves to compare these to, but I would recommend them. Steve
I've had these gloves for 6 months now to replace my previous gloves from Vallerret that were stolen. Quality is just as good as the previous pair which I had for several years. I have used these in anything from single digit temperatuess to 30 degrees F, as long as you are hiking i was never cold. For sitting at the top of a 12,000 ft mountain for sunrise though, I suggest also bringing the overmitts. Only suggestion for possible improvement because I dont use the tripod key included would be to make those pockets larger for hand warmers.
Using these ones since 2015 and still happy!
Great 2-in-1 gloves with well-thought details like waterproof zippers. Very warm, great for deep Nordic winter conditions. Zipper works smoothly and makes it easy to get fingers out of the glove to access camera dials. The gloves can perfectly be used for other activities too. Size guide on the web page is correct.
I ordered the Skadi Zipper Mitt from the website and was very unsure about the size I'd need.
The measuring advice was really helpful and the gloves fit perfectly.
I have yet to test the warmth but right now I'm very happy.
Great to get good quality gloves in small sizes would recommend.
When i received my gloves i could not believe that its so cool, i mean that gloves are thoughtfully constructed. Besides the gloves are very warm, I really love it.
Very happy with my Markhof Pro 2.0 and above all, the customer service provided by Vallerret when I exchanged them for a larger size. Thanks !
Very impressed with both quality and fit. Have used them at - 5°c and today from the exposed fingertips, everything else started warm! Only negative is the metal logo on the back of the gloves, would be better if it was stitched in.
Would definitely purchase again and have recommended them to others!
Bought these to wear under other gloves from Valleret... -2 degrees outside and no need to put on my other gloves as I was warm enough shooting all day in the snow and wind. Can't wait to test out my other gloves, but definitely worth the investment for those ones !
Thank you @Valleret :)
Very good and fast service, very soft inside and they fit like a glove!! Can’t wait to rest them in the cold.
However I used the gloves only a few times, I think I’ll use them also even when I’m not taking photos.
Fast delivery, superb product. Fabulous after sales service on previous orders make me a repeat customer.
The Merino Liner gloves are comfortable, well made & an excellent complement to the Ipsoot gloves. No complaints & can fully recommend. 5*. PS. Thanks, "HENRY".
Useful gloves. Touch capabilities are worse than without gloves, but I'm not sure if it possible to produce same performance.

Fit very well and feel soft and warm, but are thin enough so my hands still fit in my markof gloves.
Markhof Pro 2.0 Photography Glove
Received my new gloves but the grip material starting to peel away before I even used them. I could of sent them back to exchange them but as I waited so long to get them I just kept them. I will not be buying anything more from Vallerret as can get same quality at a fraction of the price. All in all very disappointed after seen all the good reviews?
Say goodbye to cold hands when taking photos thanks to these mitts! Because of the inner liner and the zipper on the mitt I don't have to take my gloves off anymore to operate my phone or camera screen. They also fit my hands well so I'm very satisfied overall.
I was doubtful between size XS and S as when I measured my hand compared with the size chart, my girth size should be XS and my hand length should be S.
I even wrote a mail to ask which size should be more suitable and explain my doubt but the reply is sort of very much depend of my own preference of want it tight or not so tight. Of coz they offer me that if the size is does not fit I can return it to exchange.
So finally I go for “not so tight” but it end up to be slightly too big for my hand that I always have to pull it else the tip of my thumb and fingers is always “hollow”.
I know I can return it to exchange, but due to COVID-19 and also winter holidays, it is really a big hassle to do that, so I just bare with it. Just a bit regret that I did not choose the size XS.
The gloves is very good in many aspects, but not warm enough for my needs
Arrived within 4 days. A good fit & very comfortable. Worn on three occasions now, all were very cold days. Kept my hands very warm. No complaints. 5 stars.
