Talk to me! I had some motor cross ones that were great but can't find them and more and I destroyed my last pair when they got full of car oil.. Doh!

What are people wearing/using at the mo?

I use the lowepro gloves as you can expose the fingers to change camera controls

These are great. Super lightweight, warm, and small holes in only 2 fingers enable you to use a smartphone too.

For shooting I use a pair of north face e-tips. They go under a pair of mittens with removable finger tips.n wonderful for cold weather and retaining dexterity.

Basspro shops have cold weather gloves with the fingertips removed for shutter actuation or for holding the line if you actually use them for fishing.

Yep, a cheap alternative is ice fishing gloves or mittens like these (external link)

Check out costco. They have some running gloves that are thin and warm. They also have some nice snow gloves too. For $12, it's worth a look.

Dear Matt,

Some options which I find pleasant are...
(& have dedicated gloves stored in a convenient outer pocket of your camera bag(s), then they won't get lost or oiled - a place for everything and everything in its place. Sorry couldn't resist sounding possibly like your mother, haha!)

For slightly cold weather-
LOWEPRO: (like LANNES already indicated); but not sure if Lowepro still makes gloves as I haven’t seen any at Western Canada retailers in the last year, nor could I find on Lowepro web site.

For colder weather-
FREEHANDS: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …tretch_Gloves_M​edium.html (external link)
(there are men's versions too; see the 1:49 minute product demo video in the link)

And for the 1DmkIII with mounted 500f4+2xTCmkIII/or 1.4TCmkII this:
OP/TECH USA: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …C_1_Mega_Shoot_​Cover.html (external link)
Possibly for your 1DmkIII with mounted 24-105f4 or 50f1.8mkII:
http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …Digital_D_Soft_​Pouch.html (external link)
(I have both of these OP/TECH USA products)

Good luck and keep warm (as you know from MX mottos... dry = warmth).


Mary
P.S. Don't forget about a nice pair of warm but flexible socks too, your toes will thank you!

Thank you all for your advice.. I will do some research and see what I can find here in the UK! I would like some of what I had originally but I can't find them anywhere?! Argh..

I don't want anything too think, I go Urbexing with a friend so need them to be tough when climbing fencing, walls etc..

Thanks, Matt

I use gloves something like this - fingerless mittens - keeps your fingers warm until you peel them back to work the camera.

Got mine from Decathlon who sell in the UK now, with mine the thumb folds back as well.

I have a pair of Matin gloves that are pretty darn good. The pointing finger and thumb can be opened to expose the tips and make camera adjustment then you can cover them up afterwards to keep them warm.
