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
These Tough as Nails 2.0 gloves sort of feel like “luxury gloves”! I say that because the area over the knuckles is padded with really comfy, soft “memory foam” type material. And the leather used in the palms is comfy too. I sometimes pan very inexpensive short cuff gloves like this because they don’t provide much crash protection, but compared to most others, these seem to be passable. At least you have the foam and hard pieces over the knuckles. And most of the rest of the hand is leather covered too. Please take the “View Larger Images” link above and take a closer look at the features and the color options. Overall a very nice, low cost glove for comfort and decent protection. I like them! :: Paul, 08-29-14
