These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket, 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
These Campeon leather gloves are a great, value priced, short cuff leather sport glove. It has good armor over the knuckles and a nice feel on the hand.
About Motonation gear: Motonation is a US distributor of many brands of motorcycle apparel and accessories in the US. One of their top brands is Sidi boots. They WERE the distributor for AGV Sport gear for many years before AGV Sport exited the US market in 2017. For 2018 Motonation developed their own line of gear to fill that niche.
This is an all-leather glove and over half the back side of the glove is perforated leather. These will be good for mild to warm weather… maybe even hot weather if you keep up your speed! The knuckle amor feels sturdy and the leather has a reasonable thickness and quality. The palm area has two layers of leather and there is some integrated padding in the heel of the hand (the most often impacted area besides the knuckles).
I like how these gloves feel when you pull them on and they look nice. My only complaint would be that the Velcro closure at the wrist doesn’t hold them on your hand securely since the banding around the wrist is kinda stretchy. Most sport-oriented gloves with have a more secure wrist closure, but many street gloves don’t have this, so it isn’t a total fail. But the positive aspects of this glove are many and the price is incredibly reasonable. If this is your price range, you’d be hard pressed to find equal features in a sport glove. :: Paul, 06-12-18
