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. If anything, these gloves run a bit larger than usual, but not a lot, so I wouldn’t advise choosing a size down from your normal, but if you are between sizes, I’d advise to choose the smaller.
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’d probably want to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
As short cuff gloves go, I really like this all-leather Rust and Redemption glove. Not too many days ago, we reviewed the matching jacket and commented on how nice the leather was. And these gloves are nice tool Of course the leather is more of a “glove weight”, but the general patina and feel is very similar and would look great with that jacket. I wore the “Black” glove for the close up photos. I think these would look great with just about any gear. The other two colors are a bit more “retro” which is interesting. The insides of the gloves are lined and there is cushy padding situated over the knuckles for some extra crash worthiness. These are a short cuff design, but the cuff is longer than most short cuff gloves and I like the quilting treatment on the leather over the wrist. This longer cuff also gives you something to easily grasp to pull them on. These gloves feel and look like a quality product and I think the price is very reasonable too. :: Paul, 08-29-14
