This NORU glove runs a bit snug as compared to other American brands we carry. I’d say this one runs only slightly small, so I’d advise you to choose the size you normally wear in gloves. If you are between sizes, then choose larger. Finger sizing is a bit slimmer than average so those with slender hands will probably like them. Those with shorter/thicker fingers may not.
Hopefully, you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based on the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
The Noru Chikei Adventure Waterproof gloves are very similar to the Ganjo Adventure Mesh gloves, but with a waterproof membrane and fewer airflow panels.
The backhand of the Noru Chikei gloves is a matte finish leather with mesh panels in the finger fourchettes and near the cuff for airflow across the waterproof membrane. There is a molded knuckle for impact resistance. The knuckle armor has a thin overlay on top that gives it a unique look.
The palm of the hand is synthetic suede with overlays in key wear areas and on the heel of the hand, up the pinky, and where the palm contacts the controls.
There are accordion stretch panels on the index and middle fingers for ease of movement. Just above the accordion panels and also below the knuckle armor are reflective stripes for nighttime visibility. The cuff has a single hook and loop closure with a leather overlay.
The Noru Chikei Adventure Waterproof gloves are a good option for someone looking for an adventure glove with waterproofing and basic protection at a budget price. This style should work for most riders in warm to cold weather riding wet or dry. :: Mike, 08/17/2022
