wrist warmers by ruskovilla
Wrist warmers by Ruskovilla – in short these were a “chance buy” while out on a drive in the countryside.
I am always looking for warm clothes. Photographing the northern lights mean you are outside at night with a clear sky. If you live in a country like Finland you know it gets cold. I have seen the weather down to -30c and I know in the north many people have hunted the aurora in much colder weather.
These warmers have thumb holes which is main reason why I bought them. They are made with soft 100% Merino wool.
I tested them on a recent road trip to Rovaniemi. I was not disappointed. My northern lights hunt got as cold as -12c. Which is cold in my opinion with out anything on your hands. They are comfortable warm and they was not itchy scratchy like I find some woolen products.
I found it very easy to operate my cameras. Set up my tripods. I will confess I had a pair of handmade fur lined mittens ready. But they was not needed at any time on my hunt.
Where do I buy merino wool wrist warmers?
That is a great question. BUT first I want to say I am not sponsored by this company. It was an impulse purchase that paid off. They are a well made warm (toasty warm) product.
The web shop has a wide range of products. Wrist Warmers Link
Reasons to buy them.
- They are very warm
- Not Itchy (I am quite sensitive).
- Great freedom of movement for photography.
- They are well made.
