Digital Camera World Verdict

The PGYTech Photography Gloves Master are brilliantly designed gloves for photographers working in cold environments. They are packed with technology that will keep your hands warm up to -35°C, and features that enable you to use your camera with ease. These are ideal for working in cold climates and for nighttime photography such as astrophotography. The gloves lose half a star for me due to slightly weak magnets on the flaps and the limiting wrist movement when the battery's are in place, but otherwise are an excellent buy.
