Like other European based brands, we find Dainese gloves to run a bit on the snug side as compared to most US based brands. The fit is comparable to Alpinestars and REVIT. The tendency to run small is not so noticeable that we’d advise you to buy one size larger, but if you are sometimes in between sizes, your best shot would be to choose larger. Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
Dainese Air Hero gloves are perfect for hot summer sport riding. They have a great sporty look and fit very well.
The breezy mesh on the back of the fingers and the “3D” fabric on the side of the thumb and on the back of the hand near the cuff will make this glove very comfortable in hot weather. I’d recommend these gloves for spring summer and fall (but not cold weather). And the overall fit is very good. They feel snug, but comfortable. The use of the the mesh materials helps with the fit because those material stretch just a bit.
The knuckles have a very substantial protector and also a molded protector on the side of the wrist bone. The side of the pinkie has extra leather too. The palm of this glove is all leather and has a small overlay of suede in the palm.
Get ready for these gloves to be your favorite. :: Paul, 08-17-18
