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.
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 Kabon Waterproof Gloves are a new sport style for Fall 2021. They are a full gauntlet waterproof leather glove with a thermal lining.
Out of the new NORU fall collection, this is the most full featured with a carbon knuckle protector, palm slider, and full gauntlet. There are two hook and loop closure straps, the smaller is to secure the glove on the hand and the larger is to adjust the cuff to work with your jacket sleeve (over or under). The thermal liner feels nice and is stitched all the way to the fingertips so you don’t have to worry about separation when you take them off. It also isn’t overly thick on the palms so you should have plenty of dexterity for controls. The waterproof liner is between the thermal liner and outer shell, but since these are leather I wouldn’t recommend them for use in rain regularly as the leather will deteriorate over time. The index finger and thumb also have touchscreen material on them but we found it did not work on Apple phones and was a little fussy on Android as well.
These gloves will be great in cool to cold weather and at this price they are a great value that you can use daily in winter riding. :: Mike, 10/7/21
