I find that Klim gloves fit more like American branded gloves than European branded gloves (which run a bit smaller). If you have experience with brands like FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket etc, I think you’ll find the fit comparable. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Just as an FYI, you may have previous experience with Alpinestars and REV’IT! which generally run about one half size smaller, size-for-size, than Klim. 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
The Inversion Pro gloves by Klim is really a premium dirt or ATV glove. These gloves have a nice goat skin palm and a combination of goat and textile on the back side of the glove. The gloves are made for milder weather use because they are lined with Gore-Tex brand wind-proofing material. That material will block the wind but allow you hands to breathe and not become clammy.
The knuckles are covered with a layer of impact absorbing material that is soft and pliable, but will instantly harden upon impact by debris. The impact protection here and the windstopper capabilities is what makes this a premium off road glove.
If you want a soft and comfortable glove for the street, I don’t see why this one won’t work for you there too. The only feature see on most short cuff gloves for the street that these don’t have is reinforcement in the heel area of the hand, but there are a heck of a lot of street gloves that don’t have that either.
This model has a sturdy strap to help you pull the gloves on your hand and you adjust the fit at the wrist with a Velcro closure. There is also just a bit of reflective material on the back of the hand. :: Paul, 02-09-18
