Held Airstream II Gloves 4.9 5 9 9
Held has done well with this glove Compared to the Klim Induction glove, not even close. I purchased the Kilm from another vendor and immediately knew something was very wrong, even dangerously wrong. The knuckle protector wasn't centered over my knuckles, and wearing them felt like sand paper. All of us riders understand the importance of gloves, as mandatory articles when riding. Comfort MUST be there. I don't know where Klim sourced those gloves, but they weren't even remotely ready for prme-time. Enter Held Airstream II. Absolutely phenomenal glove. Fit is perfect, the comfort is just simply perfect, and wearing them makes you not fear long travel. Clearly Held has done a bit of research on these. This is my first pair of (anything) Held, but I can already tell that I'm a return customer. I just hope they stay in business. Well worth the price, and I'd say to all you sport-touring/adventuring-touring guys, these gloves are MUST HAVES for summer riding. Anthony knows his gloves. Sometimes you have to call it what it is, and Anthony is spot on stating that the Held gloves are likely the best out there, at least in this price range. June 30, 2014
You get what you pay for... I apparently have to learn this lesson time and time again. I've tried numerous less expensive gloves, and compromised on protection and durability. Before this I spent $110 on a pair of gloves that offered little in the way of protection. The pair before those were $30 and both (left and right) tore on the first day. Another clique is "an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure." I suspect the guy that came up with that saying went down on his bike while wearing cheapie gloves. Stuck with a couple of grand worth of surgical bills to regain "most" of the use in your hands is a lot of "cure" to swallow. And knowing that you saved $100 on your glove purchase pre-crash is no consolation when the Doctor tells you that you might never be able to flip-off someone again. To be honest, I wish these gloves had even more protection. While I have not wrecked with these, I do feel they will hold up well when needed. I live and ride in Texas. Its hot here. No, really hot! Not your pansy Northern 90º heat-wave hot. So a comfortable glove is important. These gloves do flow air well. Also they fit me well. I'm of German decent, and these gloves are made in Germany and fit my burly meat-hook hands well. Coincidence? I think not. All and all, I'm pleased with these gloves. Sure, the $170 price was steep, but I'm hoping they'll last more than one season and offer some great protection in the event I do go down. And that is worth every penny to me. I use these gloves on my '13 BMW R1200GS. June 23, 2014
Better than expected Feel great and flow a ton of air. Held gloves are well worth the price. June 16, 2014
Awesome airflow I only have 1 ride in high-80f temps, but this thing breathes. I have a pair of Air-and-Dry and the Airstream is so much cooler. Like all past Held gloves, it takes a minimum of 2-3 days riding to get over the break-in. The pre-curve is nice. The thumb-to-forefinger area is a little tight when extending your fingers (like signaling the #5). The break-in should loosen that up. The gauntlet is a little tight getting over a 'stitch or motoport suit, but it's quite do-able. June 9, 2014
high quality glove - expensive but worth it very nice gloves…. period. great protection and a quality construction- you get what you pay for June 4, 2014
High quality glove You get what you pay for and I found although these gloves are more expensive than many, they also have the features to justify that higher cost. May 5, 2014
Top of the line Held glove This glove exudes quality. I measure 8.5 for glove sizing and I ordered a 9, the fit for me is perfect. The gloves have ventilation everywhere and feel great. The cuff is not to large and fits snug over my jackets. April 28, 2014
Held Airstream II Finally I got my Helds after almost a year wait. I live in the desert and it gets HOT. 90 degrees is the morning temperature. I wanted something that would protect me and provide airflow. I have a BMW RT and my hands are behind a fairing so any airflow in the 115 degree heat is a blessing. These gloves are everything that are claimed to be. Great protection, great airflow, great fit (like a glove:-)). The only complaint I have is against their US distributor or lack thereof. They are leaving money on the table. The gloves are expensive and worth every penny. April 10, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Gary E: Wife has a pair of the original Airstream. Best hot weather glove. Ever. Jul 12, 2014
Eric H: because they look good and had good reviews. Jul 8, 2014
Craig F: Anthony's pitch. Jul 6, 2014
Jim D: This will be my 2nd pair..had original airstream for 5 years and although stained and coming apart at one of the seams, the glove I used the most. I have at least 8 other pairs from different manufacturers. Except for the seam I'd still be wearing today. A very comfortable glove. Held is known for quality. Again, surprised about seam, but got my moneys worth. Jul 4, 2014
David P: These are AWESOME gloves. Any gloves from Held are the best. Had to order a new pair as my old ones are about shot after providing years of great service. Time to retire the old and break in a new pair! Jun 23, 2014
Robert M: Protection, comfort, and breathability. Jun 5, 2014
J U: Looks like these will be comfortable, cool down here during the SC summer, and provide good protection! Jun 3, 2014
Joseph P: Ended up not going with these Helds for one reason: the fingers were a bit too long when gripping, especially in the pinky and thumbs. Otherwise the fit was stellar. This coming from a guy who has slightly longer than average fingers, too. Apr 30, 2014
John d: Held quality and warm weather use. Apr 27, 2014
Marcel B: Haven't found a glove that compares to Held yet. I have own several pairs now and need a good hot weather glove. Feature for feature you cannot beat Held. Apr 15, 2014
A s: Replacement for my Air Stream (Air Hero) gloves. They're still in good shape, but the Air Stream II looks like it has a lot of new features. Plus my Air Heroes are a little bit small on me. Better err on the larger size. Mar 24, 2014
Gary H: I live in HOT AZ and I need a glove that protects and flows a lot of air. This seems to fit the bill. Mar 22, 2014

HeldWhile most gloves sold in the US are offered in alpha sizes (Small, Medium, Large, etc), Held gloves are sold in numeric glove sizes. The most accurate way to choose a glove size is to measure your hands using the directions and charts below. To get an idea of what Held Glove sizes correspond to in typical american gloves, a conversion guide is included below just to get you started in the right direction.

Held Size Estimated Men's Size
6 – 6 1/2 XS
7 – 7 1/2 SM
8 – 8 1/2 MD
9 – 9 1/2 LG
10 XL
11 2XL
12 3XL

Steps to Measure For Held Gloves

  • Use a flexible measuring tape to measure your hand in inches.
  • Measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
  • Take an accurate, snug measurement.
  • Measure both hands and use the largest measurement.
  • Compare your measurement to the size charts below

Held Sizing Guide

Held Glove Fitment Tips

Held gloves should fit snugly when new. They will stretch out during break in and form to fit your hand.

If you have long fingers, but a relatively narrow palm you should order a size up as the size chart does not account for finger length.

Please note, if your hand measures toward the upper limit of the size measurements, the gloves will fit very snugly. If you prefer that your gloves do not fit so snugly, you may want to select the next size larger. Held kangaroo gloves are a very precise fit. Because Held gloves are such a fitted glove, many people enjoy the snug fit. This is actually very comfortable, with few wrinkles and little crumpling in the palm area.

A properly fitted Held will "fit you like a glove".
