well designed Great design and airflow. It's the little safety features that make the big difference and when you put them together this creates tremendous bang for the buck June 22, 2015
expensive but you get good value. below 70 degrees these are cool to cold due to the airflow. But they should be bought for wearing in warmer weather anyhow and for that they are very nice. Very comfortable, fast break-in. lots of airflow. I like the long gauntlet. I bought these for practical reasons but have to admit , this is a stylish glove. I really like the look. you pay a lot but you get an excellent product. May 31, 2015
Schizophrenic Gloves I am an absolute fanboy for Held Gloves, so you may wonder why I gave this Airstream 2 an average rating. Let me begin by saying I currently have the Held Short Racer gloves in size XL, and it's the best fitting glove I have ever owned. I love everything about it. So I figured the Airstream 2 would be just a longer cuff version of the Racer glove with a perforated palm. When the Airstream came in the mail this week I was so happy to get them on and go for a ride……but once I tried it on the disappointment set in. It fits nothing like my Racer glove from Held. In fact the left glove is dramatically different then the right glove? On the left glove the pinky is about a half inch too long, yet all the other fingers are OK on length. Then the index finger has what appears to be a bad seam at the very tip because it's as if there is something poking at my finger tip. It would absolutely drive me crazy, in fact it hurt to shape my hand in the grip position when I had it on, so for long rides it would be unbearable. In short, I am sending them back, and I was really looking forward to this glove. I am going to give it one more chance and hope that this was possibly a deformed set of gloves, but if they are within spec, I can't recommend this glove. May 24, 2015
Excellent fit and finish In search of a short gauntlet 55+ degree glove and this is it. While the gauntlet is a little tight to fit over my 'Stich when commuting, it works great under the cuff of my other Gore-Tex riding jacket. Pre-curved with no internal seams coupled with spot-on sizing meant no break-in (i.e. used them over a weekend ride of 500 miles with no issues). In my 40th year of riding, these are some of the most comfortable gloves I've ever worn. Time will tell if they are durable but I have had good luck with Held gloves in the past.

Worth the price. As other reviews have stated, these gloves, even if sized properly, will be snug out of the box. They loosen up quickly and fit true to the sizing chart provided. The air flow through them is great. I hesitated to spend the money at first, but as I see it, you're investing in keeping your skin on your bones. It's probably worth paying for protection that is comfortable to ensure it gets worn. I always enjoy the saying. "Got a $5 head? Buy a $5 helmet." Last note. It wasn't an issue for me, but the cuff wasn't sized to go over my summer jacket. I put them under and couldn't care less. May 18, 2015
Excellent pair of warm to hot weather gloves Love the build quality of Held gloves and wanted to get a pair that featured perforation for warm to hot weather use. These fit the bill perfectly. Usual Held quality construction and excellent airflow where you want it - palm of the glove and venting over knuckles basically. In no way a light-weight glove though as they feature what looks to be excellent protection over the palm and wrist area. Only thing I would have liked is for them to have a slightly longer cuff but that's a very minor point. May 18, 2015
Great Air Flow These gloves are exactly what I was looking for, extremely breathable and still protective. The gloves are super soft and after some time breaking them in they "fit like a glove". Held was also the first glove to actually fit my hand well which was a big plus. May 12, 2015
Order one size smaller My hand measures 7.5 inches so naturally I went with the size 8.Well this was a mistake as the fingers are quite large.Maybe I just have strange hands but the fit does not seem to great.I would advise ordering a size smaller Despite Anthony saying they run small.Maybe that used to be true and something in the manufacturing process has changed thus messing with the fit of the glove.Unfortunately I have already ridden with them so I cannot exchange them for a size smaller.I am hoping they will feel better over time but we'll see.If you plan on purchasing make sure you are sure of your size.

Eric R: Great gloves! Jan 5, 2015
Chuck F: Wanted a summer glove with a gauntlet. Jan 2, 2015
Matt A: Because I live in tropical north Queensland, Australia I wanted a gauntlet style glove that offered maximum air flow with minimal compromise on protection. I currently own a pair of short dainese leather gloves that are very well designed and manufactured but a little warm. Because I am a taller rider, two inches of my fore arm is also exposed. Hopefully these gloves will suit my needs. Nov 17, 2014
W I: Good quality and reviews Oct 30, 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

John d: Held quality and warm weather use. Apr 27, 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

Steve R: No, the gloves don't work with my iPhone. I haven't tried any other phones.

My Garmin GPS works fine, but its a different kind of touch screen, I believe its pressure sensitive as opposed to the electro-static types in most phones.

Lawrence B asked: I measured my hand to an 8.75. This product says to get a snug glove, so should I get the 8, or should I go with the size 9? Mar 29, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gary H: I have some Held Airstream gloves and they are fantastic. The do fit snug and mold themselves to your hand over time. That said I would do the 9. You want snug not tight. I have had mine for over a year and they are the best pair of gloves I have ever had. BTW I live in Phoenix and ride year round to include 115+ temps with these gloves. Hope this helps. Mar 29, 2015

Taylor D: Gary, I was just about to ask about temperatures in this. I live in a similar desert environment (just a couple hundred miles as the crow flies) and have been looking for some gauntlets to replace my current gloves. I'll keep your sizing and temp suggestions in mind, +1 for your answer man. Jun 17, 2015
Calvin L: I would definitely buy a size 8. It will be snug at first but the amazing top quality leather will eventually fit "like a glove." When I say eventually, give it a few rides. Another great point about this glove...not related to size...is that it breathes so well without sacrificing safety. The air just comes through as if you are not even wearing a glove. Good luck.

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".
