Quick, someone get Think Tank to make an unholy union of a pair of gloves and a Pixel Pocket Rocket, touching off a workwear arms race (hands race?)!

According to your B&H link, these gloves are, I kid you not, "Designed to Keep Your Hands Warm".

Wow, $300 for a darn pair of gloves? I hope it helps make your photos look better.

Who cares about Manfotto? It's not a brand associated with high fashion, so the user looks more like a tripod geek with dough than anything else.

The jacket looks pretty cool. Not $500 cool, though.

that softshell design resides in just about every clothing makers arsenal today and for quite a bit less.

Are you sure the $300 gloves aren't actually Gitzo? Maybe the Gitzo models cost $1k? I feel bad when I spend 40 bucks for glomitts.

For $300 I could hire someone to warm my hands for me.

Unfortunately these gloves only have 3 fingers and have to be flipped on whereas the Gitzos have to be twisted on. There is a debate on the World of Gloves website where proponents of each system argue over which is best. I would go for the Novoflex Quadra-Digit model as they provide protection for one more finger, are made from unobtainium and cost $1200.
