Shooting Gloves ???
Paul DiSalvo, Photographer
Highlands Ranch | CO | United States of America | Posted: 7:15 PM on 11.04.11
->> My trusty old Lowepro Shooters Gloves are wearing out. Has anyone seen these still for sale anywhere as it looks like they're not made anymore? Any suggestions for a replacement if not? I like the little grippy dots on these and I'm not a fan of those without fingertips. I saw something similar called Freehands at B&H. Any suggestions? Something heated would be great too. Thanks.

->> I briefly mentioned these in the current Shooter Pants thread but I use 5.11 Taclite gloves. http://tinyurl.com/6xunvzf

They are thin leather on the palm side which is just enough to keep your hand off the cold metal of the camera and lens. The back is a stretchy thin material (neoprene-esque) that keeps the glove from being bulky. They allow me the dexterity to fully use every button and dial on my camera and also work on the touchscreen of my phone (Android).

The downside: After a few years, some of the fingertips have started to break open. Also, the velcro doesn't hold very well anymore. Maybe that is something I should just expect with time but it is annoying.

If it is really cold, they are thin enough that I can slip a pair of thinsulate hobo gloves over the top. The Taclite keeps my fingertips covered still.

->> can you still use an iPhone with them? Some gloves are made for that. I had a pair of under armor gloves that mostly worked with my iPhone, but I lost them last winter.

->> I like these. The fingertips are exposed, but you can cover them with a mitt when you don't need the use of your fingertips.

->> I've used these for several years:

They're not moisture-proof of course, and I'm about to invest in my third pair (there's a nice hole in one of the fingers now, which I suppose is good for iPhone usage!), but they're thin enough and have sufficient grip to be adequate for most outdoor shooting. Definitely not enough insulation for severe winter conditions, but for anything above freezing they've been perfect.

->> Al,

I have the soft stretch for the fall and semi-cold weather and the ski version for really cold weather. I've had both pair for about 3 years and neither pair has frayed or shown much wear at all

->> You could check out the selection of sailing gloves. I have a pair that are full-fingered, except for the thumb and index fingers. Plus, as with most marine gear you can get stuff that will keep you warm and dry in pretty terrible conditions.

->> I have used these for years. They're great! No slip palm and Velcro pull back for the index and thumb. Comfortable and warm. They are made for fly fishing but work great for taking pictures. They are made by Kenai. You used to be able to find them at Sports Mart, but they have them on Amazon for about $23.

I don't think they're made anymore, but you can still find them at some suppliers. They're not great for serious cold, but I've never seen anything grip as good when wet.
