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:
The Phantom II is offered in both long and short finger versions so those of you with hard to fit hands have a chance to own thesegloves in a size that fits. We hesitate to get too scientific with the finger measurements since with gloves, even a small measured difference in size makes a big fit difference so quantifying it by measurements is hard, but just to give you the idea, we measured length of the middle finger of a size 10/short, 10/regular and 10/long. The short is about 3/8” shorter than the regular and likewise the long is about 3/8” longer than the regular.
And here is some information about the long term care of Held gloves:
Our Two Cents
I’ve always been a Held glove fan. I think the quality of their products just really shows. These new Phantom gloves feel like I’m pulling Rolls Royces on my hands! The palms are kangaroo which is commonly known to be one of the best leathers for gloves. The leather is thin, but very abrasion resistant and the kangaroo is also more tolerant of moisture and salt in sweat. The palms are unlined to give you the most feel for the controls. The back of the glove is lined in Kevlar fabric which is backed by Suprotect foam, so with the gloves on, the back of the hand feels like it is enveloped by perfectly formed padding. The stainless knuckle protector feels super durable and looks super sharp. Like the former version of the Phantom, this glove uses stingray material for abrasion protection on the ball of the thumb and there are other panels of similar, but man-made Superfabric material on the heel of the hand, the gauntlet and the backs of the fingers. The cuff is adjustable and there is a Velcro-close strap at the wrist that secures the glove on your hand. The overall package feels just as secure as a glove can feel, and I bet after a dozen wearings, these gloves would feel like they were made just for you. :: Paul, 03-28-13
