good grip , warm even when wet , slit for shutter finger
You might wonder why a pair of shooting gloves features on a wildlife site - the answer is that like much other hunting equipment they are also marvelously suited to photography.
My old dear bought me a pair of these after I got full blown hypothermia whilst photographing deer in the snow. Being neoprene they are warm even when wet , and the grip they give is excellent. There is a slit in the right index finger which is ideal for fast shutter action.
In very cold weather you can wear silk ski gloves under them , but it would have to be very artic for this to be necessary.
The only downside is the funny looks you get but hey I'm used to that
a great bit of kit , I love em
