The Heat Company Heat 2 Softshell Gloves Review
Hello my friends, this my second time  that I am here to talk you about gloves, another gloves of The Heat Company . Last time The Heat Company sent my the Merino Linear Gloves were you can read my review here
For some of you, you already know that I have a cooperation with the Heat Company, for three  years which I like very much and hope to extend for many good years. This time I was contacted by the brand to know if I was interested in testing the Heat 2 Softshell gloves.
Right now we are at the peak of the solar explosions, so these are the best years to see and photograph the northern lights, and as such during these years we will always have Photodetails Workshps in northern countries, with lots of cold and snow.
 I had the chance to test these gloves on my first trip to Norway and now I'm going to talk you a little bit about them.

THE HEAT COMPANY® products are regularly tested in our own Intersport shop and must prove in practice.
The gloves came comes in a common cardboard box, inside of it, we find a a soft cloth with some very nice textures, I think imitating snow, enclosing a pair of gloves, a pair of scalps, and a fact sheet. Very very nice package.
For me, the merino gloves were enough, because I don't suffer much from the cold in my hands, but merino is a warmer wool than normal, but the downside is that if snow falls on the gloves, since they are wool, they get all wet, so I looked for an option that wouldn't have that problem. These gloves can be worn on their own or with the merino gloves as a first layer, so that the set leaves your hands warm and dry.
Keep your hands warm and dry even in the harshest conditions with these Heat 2 Softshell Mittens/Gloves from The Heat Company. When you're out in the cold, conserve heat by using the outer mitten, and then when you need to do some work, get a drink, snap a selfie, or perform any task that requires dexterity, just fold the mitten and thumb back to expose your fingers. Magnets hold the folded-back finger and thumb covers out of the way.
Your first layer of protection from the elements is a wind- and water-resistant mitten shell with Thinsulate insulation. The palm is reinforced with soft and durable goatskin which is naturally water and wear resistant. Extra-long knitted cuffs keep heat in and snow or wind out. Loops at the fingers of the glove make it easy to tug off. To find your correct size, measure the circumference of the palm of your hand at its widest point, just below the fingers.

Glove Sizing
Measure the circumference of your hand as shown on the picture (tape should not be too firm).
Should the gloves still not fit perfectly, you can send them back to us easily and free of charge.
The Heat Company has as a system in their warming gloves a pocket to place their warmers in.
On the back of the seams of each glove is a sewn pocket that is designed to hold an optional compact hand warmer.
Each pair of gloves comes with two gift warmers, and more can be purchased here on The Heat Company Webpage.
The Heat Company's merino gloves come prepared so that you can use the gloves to warm your hands, while still being able to handle your phone.
A textile fabric has been inserted into the thumb, index and middle finger tips of each glove. This allows you to operate a smartphone, smartwatch, or touch-screen tablet without having to take off your gloves.
In cold weather, you don't want to photograph outside without gloves on your hands. Gloves keep your hands warm and agile, so you can use them to push or pull your way up a mountain. Frostbite happens faster and is more severe than you may realize. You can get frostbite on your fingers in as little as 30 minutes when the air temperature is 0° F. If you ignore the warning signs, you could lose a finger or two in the process.
Like most snow clothing, it is best to use a layering system when choosing gloves for your hands. The base layer typically is a glove liner that slips inside an outer waterproof, windproof or insulated shell. Liners tend to be lightweight and packable, so there is no reason why they shouldn't have a place in your pack.
You can buy this gloves in The Heat Company Web Site for 65€, you will have a superb addition to any cool weather casual wardrobe. 
The Heat company Heat 2 Softshell it's a second layer glove with a very aid in dexterity. The gloves add a layer of warmth under a shell and have an ample cuff for wearing under a jacket.  After a few minutes of wearing it, you hardly know it is there. It's a very warm glove. 
As I've said before, merino gloves are very warm, they do a great job, but you can easily get wet gloves and consequently wet and cold hands, so I advise you to wear either a waterproof glove, or if you're very cold, a combination of first layer merino gloves, and second layer the heat 2 softshell, and you'll be much better protected, and you can always wear warmers to stay cozy.
If you're going to a cold country with a lot of snow, and if you're going to be photographing, I strongly advise you to wear these gloves, and if possible with a first layer so that your hands are well protected.
