These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Scorpion, etc, so 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. If anything, these seem to run a bit smaller than other Joe Rocket gloves I’ve tried, so if you are between sizes and undecided, then choose the larger.
Just as an FYI, you may have previous experience with European designed brands such as Alpinestars and REV’IT! which run about one half size smaller, size-for-size, than the American brands. It is not a universally true fact, but generally holds for most styles. So if a particular size in either of those brands is roomy on you, then you may be able to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
Gosh, I’m kind of liking these Windchill gloves. Sure, they’re simple but they are comfortable too. The leather used is soft and feels like it is of high quality. The gloves have a bit of padding in the palm to help with vibration and there is also some padding on the side of the pinkie and above the knuckles to offer some impact protection. The thickness is a “moderate” amount so the gloves will offer pretty good warmth, but not so much as to make them feel “puffy”. And the insides are lined with a slick/comfy nylon liner. On the left thumb, you’ll find a good sturdy strip of rubber for squeegeeing down your shield. When you take the gloves off, they can be folded or rolled up into a pretty tight package for storage. For the money, I think these are quite nice! :: Paul, 12-04-13
