We found these Torc gloves to fit true to size for an American cut glove, much like other American brands we carry like Klim or Tour Master.
Our Two Cents
The Torc Costa Mesa gloves are a unique looking short cuff leather glove.
The entire Costa Mesa glove is made from supple goat leather that feels nice on the palm and allows you to get a good feel for the controls through the leather. There is an overlay on the palm across the main wear area and down to the heel of the palm for additional wear/abrasion resistance. The heel also has a small foam pad insert for impacts. The back of the hand has a unique checkerboard pattern of leather tiles across the knuckle insert.
There are accordion panels on the fingers and near the cuff at the back of the hand so the gloves really flex when you grip the controls. The fingers have flat external stitching on the palm side and a unique combination of fourchettes and top of the finger stitching for a retro look. The cuff has two hook and loop adjusters, one on the medial and one on the lateral side. There is a flap of the palm reinforcement that hangs over these flaps to keep them out of the way any controls when riding. Of note, there is touchscreen material on the index fingers that doesn’t seem to work at all. The goat leather on the other digits works ok on both Android and Apple devices here at the shop so they’ve effectively blocked touchscreen capability on the index fingers that would have otherwise existed.
Overall the Torc Costa Mesa gloves are a unique retro style glove that will work for most riders in cool to warm weather. :: Mike, 10/26/2022
