Held gloves are sold in glove sizes rather than the normal “alpha” sizes you are used to in the US. But fear not, we offer a comprehensive guide to choosing a Held glove size for you:
I found this glove to be generously sized as compared to other Held styles, so if you are between sizes, I’d advise you to choose the smaller.
And here is some information about the long term care of Held gloves:
Our Two Cents
About this sale and warranty: Held gloves (and other apparel products) are made by Held GmbH in Germany and have been distributed in the US for the last 10 years or so by Held USA, which is a small “mom and pop” out of North Carolina. In mid-December, Held USA announced they were quitting business. And at that time, we bought their remaining inventory of Held gloves in the US as a closeout/liquidation. Other retailers may also have some gloves in their stock as well but there has not yet been a new distributor established and therefore no more stock is currently available. We are hoping for the announcement of a new US distributor because we think they are a fine product line, our customers enjoy them and we experience very few warranty issues. And speaking of warranty, since there is currently no US distributor to inspect and repair/replace gloves as a result of a warranty claim, there is no way for consumers to exercise a warranty claim. We will of course still accept returns of new/unused gloves within 30 days of your order (just like any other product), but we will not offer any warranty whatsoever on any glove that has been used or not returned during that time frame. We are hopeful a new distributor will be announced and they will provide normal warranty coverage, but right now, we can’t tell you when or if that will happen.
About this product: The Rodney by Held is a bit more technical take on the plain perf leather glove. A lot of people like a simple design like this for summer riding. A fully perforated glove like this will flow a lot of air, and the simple design makes them comfortable and you can also pack them away in a pocket or small storage area easily. Most leather perf gloves like this are simple and inexpensive, but this Held model has more features than most. Just look over the bullet list up above and you’ll see what I mean. These features make this glove at least in the “believable” department when it comes to protection. Overall I like the way these gloves look and feel. :: Paul, 03-29-13
