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:
And here is some information about the long term care of Held gloves:
Our Two Cents
The Twin Gore-Tex 2-in-1 gloves offer a unique design that can be a fully insulated glove or a glove with less insulation between your palm and the controls. It has a unique 2 compartment design. It is both warm and waterproof.
The main draw here is the unique two chamber design of the glove. If you take the “View Larger Images” link above you’ll see a couple good shots of this. There is an inner divider built into the glove and you can choose which “chamber” to put your hand in. If you put your hand into the “Dry” chamber your hand is surrounded by Gore-Tex and the palm of your hand is on the glove’s palm leather with no insulation in between. If you put your hand in the “Warm” chamber, you are still surrounded by Gore-Tex and now you have insulation on the backside AND the front side of your hand. So that is the “magic” of this design. For colder and/or wet weather, you can choose to have insulation all around just like most dedicated/insulated gloves, but when it is not as cold out and/or if you have heated grips, you can choose to wear the glove with insulation only on the backside of your hand and with no insulation on the palm side. In this position, you’ll have improved feel for the controls and less insulation to prevent the flow of heat into your hands from heated grips.
This glove a lot like the Air n Dry which is also a two chamber design glove, but WITH insulation for cold weather. I bet there are going to be a lot of you that will enjoy having a pair of gloves like this… street riders, commuters, adventure riders, etc. I won’t deny that it is a lot of money, but the quality of Held and the increased usefulness are definitely advantages over other cold weather gloves. And if you compare these to other cold weather gloves you’ll notice they have a lot more protection than many. There is a substantial molded protector over the knuckles and padded protectors on the heel of the hand, the outside of the pinky and on the side of gauntlet. The gloves are a combination of leather and fabric (use of the fabric keeps the weight and bulk down) and the insides of the “Warm” chamber are lined with a black, cushy faux fur type material that feels great! :: Paul, 03-19-19
Held says: The Held Twin Gore-Tex 2-in-1 gloves feature dual-chamber technology for your choice of two compartments – the “warm chamber” provides an extra layer of insulation while the “dry chamber” allows better tactile feel and optimal grip.
