I have personally tested the Heat Layer System this past winter in the Arctic, sub-Antarctic, Yellowstone National Park, and Japan in temps down to -30F. The system is without doubt the best I have ever used in extreme conditions, offering both superior warmth and dexterity.
As a landscape photographer it often happens to find myself out in the cold and wet occasions. For this reason I need clothing that will keep my warm and dry and surely comfortable to shoot, with hands warm and ready for camera control.
I’ve been wanting to get a pair of proper winter gloves for when I’m out shooting, but I haven’t been able to find anything that really seemed to work. By random chance I found an article about the the Heat 3 Smart Gloves...
After exhaustive testing I created by far the most comprehensive group test of photography gloves on the internet. The Heat Company were responsible for my two favourite pairs of gloves: the Heat 3 Shell Mitt and the Heat 2 Softshell Mitt was my pick.
Gloves are something of a problem for photographers. We need to wear gloves thick enough to effectively keep our hands warm, it is after all hard to operate the camera with numb fingers, but not so thick that the gloves themselves reduce our dexterity.
