These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Scorpion, etc, so 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.
This is the first glove style I’ve ever seen that comes in a “wide” size. So if you have wide, thick hands and have trouble finding a fit in “normally” sized gloves, then give these wide sizes a try. I’ve not yet come up with a way to quantify how wide they are, so I guess you’ll just have to give them a try.
Our Two Cents
If you are looking for a basic pair of leather gloves, then you should pick up a pair of these. The leather is really soft and feels like quality leather. There is some light padding in the palms to help with vibration. The insides are lined with a comfortable tricot-like material so your hands won’t come out of the gloves black from dye. We took a couple shots to test the reflectivity of the material on the backs of the hands and they REALLY light up. Take the “View Larger Images” link above to see those night shots. Also, if you have wide hands, check out the “wide” size selections. Overall, a very nice basic leather glove for a very reasonable price. :: Paul, 12-04-13
