Last month we re­viewed the Valler­ret Women’s Nordic gloves, and this month we’ve turned our at­ten­tion to the uni­sex Ip­soot gloves. These are thicker and warmer than the Nordics, feel­ing sim­i­lar to ski­ing gloves. Un­like stan­dard ski­ing gloves, how­ever, they have flip-off caps on the in­dex fin­gers and thumbs. This means that you can feel the but­tons and di­als of a cam­era with­out hav­ing to ex­pose your whole hand or all of your fin­gers to the cold.

Like the Nordics, mag­nets hold the fin­ger caps back while your fin­ger tips are ex­posed. How­ever, the mag­nets are oc­ca­sion­ally not strong enough to main­tain their at­trac­tion. Nev­er­the­less, we found the caps usu­ally stay out of the way.

If you are plan­ning to go out in very cold con­di­tions, or pho­tog­ra­phy isn’t the main aim of your trip, the Ip­soot gloves are an ex­cel­lent choice. Oth­er­wise, we would rec­om­mend the Nordic or Markhof gloves, which aren’t as warm but do al­low more dex­ter­ity.
