Great product and very fast shipping!!!
I'll buy again their products. AAA+++
i'm very happy about the gloves! they're very usefull and comfortable. freezing while taking photos is not a problem anymore!
I bought a pair of gloves but they were the wrong size and I only had two weeks before I left for overseas. I was in a spin because I didn't have enough time to send them back and then wait for them to send another pair. But they told me not to worry -they would send another pair right away. Those gloves arrived this morning in plenty of time. That to me shows Valerette have a really good attitude towards their customers. These new ones look great and I can operate my camera well with them on. Thanks Vallerett. I really appreciate what you did for me.
The gloves function well; warm and well made. My issue with the gloves is based on the sizing and advertised features.
Using the sizing chart provided, I found the size recommended for me. Also seeing the note regarding a snug-fit glove, I opted for the next size larger. I should have gone two sizes larger as the gloves aren’t quite big enough, even with the added size.
The magnets on the fingers simply don’t work. The magnets aren’t strong enough to get through the material to make a connection. Also, I’m pretty sure one of the magnets was installed backwards, as i get a repelling force on the right thumb.
The gloves are perfect for me. The possibility to us the thumbs and the index finger is not only good for photography but also when you have to drive in a an ice cold car and you have to use the radio or the navigation system.
Great quality, great usability. Perfect.
Just got these gloves and used them twice in -2 C with wind chill -12 C. Worked very well. Kept my hands warm, and I use the fold back tips only rarely, as the tight fit and dexterity of the gloves permits me to make adjustments without having to expose my fingertips. Love these gloves!
I've had the Skadi zipper mitt now for a month or so, and it does the job! so far only really tested in mild winter weather (up to minus 7), I expect it to get colder soon, so can update then. The inner gloves that are included are good on their own for around 0 to minus 2 celsius. The outer mits though feel like they will help when its a lot colder.
My only concern is that the mits are a little clumsy to use, so they take a bit of getting used to, in theory when unzipped for camera usage for periods, the fingers are protected, so I think this solution will work, but need to check in colder temps too.
One slight concern, the pop button to hold the mitten back is difficult to use, I think a magnet or velcro would be simpler / easier, will update on this too - if I can find it easier with some practice. I can shoot ok without the button engaged, hence only a minor concern.
Better than anything else I've seen. I have to use my teeth to pull the zippers on the mitts... but it works.
Were a gift for my father who will soon be making a trip to the North of Sweden.
Up to now he only had positive things to say about the gloves e.g. that the grip when holding the camera is excellent and that they keep his hand perfectly warm.
My partner and I have been in business a while now and shoot stills and video year round in all weather and temperatures. We really dislike shooting with cold hands because it inhibits our control when we are doing events. Most of our photography is racing and off road, our test sessions this winter have been in sub 32degree weather, in the canyons with the Ultra4 cars we are scrambling over rocks and boulders and need to maintain a secure grip on our equipment, these have outperformed any of the other gloves we have ever used and are now a dedicated customer. I will be doing a full review on my website and social media, I have found the perfect gloves for my photography.
Yesterday I used my gloves for the first time trying to photograph the aurora in Finland. The temperatura was around -5 and the gloves kept me warm while I could easily fix the settings of the camera. The glove fits perfectly and is comfortable.
I was very excited to finally receive these gloves as after one cold photo shoot and drone flight, I knew I needed something to keep my fingers nimble enough to fly my drone and use my Nikon on the ground. These gloves are warm as I’ve worn them in temps as low as 33F. The grip on them is almost too much, no worries about anything slipping out of your hands. I was disappointed that the finger tips do not flip back completely. You have to slip your fingertip through a slit in the finger of the glove. These slits are not big enough for my fingers to comfortably fit through. I have to be careful and stretch them so that circulation is not an issue. Then the magnets holding the semi-flip back tips are not nearly adequate to work any better than 30% of the time. I pretty much always have to try 2 or 3 times to get at least one of the 4 tips to stay back. For $79 I expected the actual selling feature of the gloves to work better.
Ordered a small and theybwere too small. Company sent me a medium even before I sent back the small. Super helpful. They are for my daughter and she loves them.
