These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket, 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.
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
The Overlord Resistance gloves offer good protection and comfortable leather construction. And also sharp colors! I like these new Icon gloves. They are well made and have some pretty decent protection. The leather is soft and comfortable and should break in easily. And there is a large molded knuckle protector. It is softer than most and very flexible which means these gloves will fold away for storage in a pocket pretty easily. There is a bit of mesh material used and some of the leather is perforated so these gloves will be comfortable in warmer weather for sure. Another nice little touch is the use of a non-snagging Velcro material at the wrist that won’t grab the fabric parts of the glove nor your clothing. Overall a nice glove and be sure and check the photo gallery for the color selection. Some of those are sharp! :: Paul, 10-24-13
