We generally advise that Highway 21 gloves run about like other US based manufacturers, but this particular model runs a little snug, probably because of the insulation involved. They are just a tad more snug… not so much I’d advise to buy a size smaller, but if you are between sizes sometimes, I’d advise you choose the larger. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
I’m liking these Deflector gloves by Highway 21. They have a more sport fit, especially for an insulated glove and they have a unique removable gauntlet.
This glove is all leather on the outside and has some built in insulation… I’d characterize it as “medium” thickness. The gloves are also fitted with a waterproof liner under the leather. The gloves’s cut has some finesse, so the gloves aren’t too puffy and they have a nice pre-curved shape to them (many winter gloves don’t).
The cuff of the glove is knitted to keep out the cold, but over that is a removable wind defector… sort of a half gauntlet which will shield your sleeve end from the wind. You can use that defector or not depending upon what jacket you are using.
The knuckles are protected with a molded armor piece that has some foam under it, so it is comfortable to wear. The palm side has a second layer of leather with a bit of padding underneath and a quilted stitch design. These gloves sort of make me feel like Batman! I like them… especially considering the price! :: Paul, 02-22-18
