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. The fingers do seem just a little short though so if you have long fingers or if you are between sizes, then choose larger.
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.
Our Two Cents
The Noru Pawa Glove is a no frills lightweight short cuff glove that is new for fall 2021.
This glove is very simply made and is almost an off road style glove. It has a synthetic palm and overlays on the index and middle fingers to improve grip in wet conditions. There is a touchscreen tip on the index finger as well, and we found that the thumb also works on both Apple and Android phones. The thing that sets these gloves apart from an all out off road glove style is the knuckle protection. There is a connected knuckle protector and also individual protectors on the first knuckle of each finger. The short cuff closes with a hook and loop strap so you can adjust the fit to your liking.
I will call out that the knuckles can look almost dirty right out of the bag, but I think it is a combination of the glue on the knuckles and a little wear in transport.
Overall these gloves are great and at this price point they are a winner for sure. :: Mike, 10/8/21
