After first wearing them just for 15 min, appeared gaps between middle and ring fingers on both hands. Second attempt was to use them as liners with Markhof Pro 2.0 and they teared on big fingers both hands just from usage once. It was quite strange, point fingers in Markhof have tightly holes for fingers, but thumbs have fluently holes. I repaired them and tried to use with city leather gloves, but after several more wearing appeared one more hole on middle finger. It's pity, gloves were so nice at first look, but not affordable for real life.
Gloves "suitable" for temperatures about +10C (maybe +5+6C without any wind) or as liners for another gloves. Touch inserts quite good in comparison with touristic gloves, which I tried, but in real life we tap not by center of finger and this causes some difficulties. Almost not possible to type text from screen keyboard, but possible to slowly find contact or open app.
The liner feels good on the skin and very cmpfortable, the touch bits are very sensitive, it feels like using bare hands. It came with few stitches missing on the seams, so a bit of a let down.
Sorry to hear about that - please drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll definitely find a solution here :)
Touch works well on camera screen so that is a plus.
Not nearly as warm as I was hoping. Wind gets through very easily.
The title says it all! I purchased the extra small primaloft/merino liner to fit inside the same sized Ipsoot gloves and there are just right! Highly recommend!
I was very hopeful when I received a pair of Markhof Pro 2.0 gloves as a Christmas present. I had read a review saying how good they were for a Raynaud’s sufferer. I have Raynaud’s and am a photographer. With Raynaud’s you lose feeling in the fingers. So I find I can’t operate camera controls.
I had looked carefully at the advice on the Vallerret website regarding temperature. The claimed rating was -10 C (that’s minus 10 C). And where I am in Southern England, it very rarely gets colder than around 3 C and that’s only at night; nothing like Norwegian temperatures. (Although I notice temperature has been withdrawn from the Vallerret online advice now – possibly because the claims could not be substantiated?). So I thought the Markhof would be fine for everyday winter wear. It has got cold recently, so it was an opportunity to wear the gloves, but my fingers didn’t last ten minutes, when only popping briefly to my local shop. (photo wouldn't load) No fingers exposed. On the day I question it was around 5 C. (Also the gloves were not comfortable, the seams tended to scratch, particularly inside my wrist, but I thought this might wear down in time).
I believed the Markhof with the Primaloft/Merino Liner would be good for colder weather, as it would give extra warmth and when opening the forefinger and thumb, the liner would help me retain the warmth until I could re-close the tips. So I purchased the liner. The liners are touch screen sensitive for camera and phone too. I also warmed the liners and gloves before going out. So I went out, full of hope, with my camera. But two problems
1. The liner gets stuck in the opening when trying to close the tips, however much wriggling I tried. I would have to remove the Markoff glove to remedy this, which defeats the object of the exercise!! (photo wouldn't load here)
2. The gloves, even with liner, do not deliver– my fingers still froze.
So for all the hype and the price, these gloves do not deliver.

Please note, our gloves are designed to fit snuggly to give you the best camera feel without compromising on warmth. If you prefer a looser fit, please consider to go a size up.
As we learn more and more about gloves we also learn that all hands are different. Some people have long skinny fingers and slim wrists, others have wide hands with short fingers.
Our gloves wont fit all even with the right measurements from the sizing chart – but we try!
For many, the best option will be to go up a size if your measurements are in between sizes.
If you are between sizes or if your hands do not fit into the measurements on our sizing chart, we recommend prioritizing the fit for the girth measurement. The girth is the most important measurement and if the girth size on the glove is too small, you won't be able to fit the glove.
If you’re considering pairing a liner glove with your photography gloves, we recommend choosing the same size liner as photography glove. We designed our liners to be thin and fit inside of our photography gloves so we recommend your normal size in liners. There are two exceptions to this:
Exception #1: If you are at the very end of the ratio size in the sizing chart, e.g. 1 mm from being a size Large, then we advise going up a glove size if you plan to often wear the liner with the gloves.
Exception #2: If your personal preference is to wear fairly loose gloves, then you should also go up a size when adding a liner. We don't recommend this as you will compromise dexterity with loose gloves and our priority is best possible camera feel. But you know best what you like!
House tip: Make sure to choose a liner size that is snug/tight on your hand for the best Fliptech performance when wearing liners and gloves together.
