These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Speed and Strength, 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.
Just as an FYI, you may have previous experience with European designed brands such as Alpinestars and REV’IT! which run about one half size smaller, size-for-size, than the American brands. It is not a universally true fact, but generally holds for most styles. So if a particular size in either of those brands is roomy on you, then you may be able to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
I like these new Resistor gloves. I often warn about the lack of protection with very inexpensive gloves, but these Resistor gloves feel a bit more substantial than many other “cheap glove” styles I review. The palms are a thicker Clarino-type material (like man-made suede) and the back of the hand and between the fingers use a stretchy nylon-type material. Over the knuckles is a molded protector of some sort which is quite comfortable. I also like the cuff. It is about an inch wide and made of neoprene which should fit easily under any sleeve cuff.
The fabric making up most of the glove flows air so these gloves will be best in mild to hot temps. Of course these gloves aren’t “highly protective” but they feel better than most and they fit nicely and are comfortable too. :: Paul, 06-25-15
