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".

Held Airstream II Gloves 4.5 5 43 43
Great summer glove Have had several Sambia gloves in size 10 but size 10 in the Airstream II was too large. Size 9s are snug but better than the larger size. The increased protection over the Sambia's is readily apparent. October 19, 2015
Good breather My hands run warm so these have become my standard above 65 degree glove. Great ventilation and the cuff is small enough to fit inside my jacket. Dries fast when it gets wet. October 6, 2015
Feel the Breeze These gloves are all about that ventilation. You can really feel the breeze run through the glove when you're at speed. And if you take a hand off the bars, and turn it palm forward, the perforations really let the air in and is incredibly refreshing on a hot day. At first the gloves felt pretty tight, but after a few days of wear, they broke in nicely. The fingers still feel a little short, so I feel a little pressure in the fingertips, but it's not bad. Another nice feature is the palms and finger tips are relatively thin (compared to my winter gloves), which gives you better feel for the bike, and makes operating the key pad to get into my office parking lot much easier. September 28, 2015
Good glove but with its drawbacks. So I bought these gloves in June of 2015, writing this review three months later. I've used them everyday and so far like them and feel safe wearing them. Some initial things I noticed were that the left and right glove fit differently. Having measured my hands they are quite symmetrical but the left glove started off a bit too big and the right glove was significantly small. It was my understanding that leather gloves will break in and they did but not to the all time comfort of my left glove. The first few weeks my right hand felt significant discomfort with the small sizing and with the discomfort in my fingers gone by now there still remains mobility issues and discomfort resting my hand around the throttle. Sizing issues aside the gloves are holding up pretty well as far as wear and tear go. I do see some stitching coming undone but I don't believe it is significant as it seems there are redundancies built in. My one biggest complaint though on the wear and tear though is about the outlining material around the gloves opening. Occasionally while adjusting the gloves I find that I am poked by sharp fibers and it irritates me when this happens. On to airflow the gloves flow great I must admit! But one of the fall backs for me is that they flow great primarily on the underside of the glove. So I find myself taking my hands off the handlebars to get that sweet sweet airflow. It would be nice if the flowed more on the back of the hand side. In the review video Anthony mentions that they are not waterproof and sad to say my gloves have seen their fair bit of rain... maybe five showers in the past three months. Being somewhere dry this was unexpected for me but I found that the rain did not harm the gloves as bad as I thought it would. I will still be looking into proper maintenance off the gloves though having seen rain. September 19, 2015
about to rip after 6 months use i ordered these gloves feb 14 2015..and barely 6 months later, the perferated kargaroo is tearing apart on the hand where close to where the seam for the superfabric is.. extremely disappointed in the durability..my second pair of held's 1st being the sambia, and those also fell apart at the fingers..i dont think ill be buying held again. i was expecting a much better glove from held. if i wreck, i really believe that the glove will rip open at that exact location of the bigger stretched leather. August 28, 2015
Great glove Great glove , I believe in you get what you pay for ! August 10, 2015
Good, warm weather gloves. I'm new to the riding community, and was looking to not skimp on my protective gear. These gloves fit the bill for my spec, (Gauntlet, armor protection, well made) and have served me well thus far. I found that on my hands, the Large (Size 9) were perfect/tight fit, and have worn in slightly to a comfortable, snug fit, maintaining a pleasing amount of dexterity. Measure your hands, and follow the chart accordingly. Located in Louisiana, the ability to vent as much heat as possible in the humid environment is a must. As advertised, these gloves allow a nice flow of air through to the hand, and have not allowed my digits to "Prune up" at all. I have not noted any dye running from the different leather panels used to construct the gloves, even on 115 degree heat index days. I believe that these are a good summer weight glove, with the ability to stretch into the Louisiana fall, in conjunction with hand guards. I will be looking into a winter weight glove, or hand grip heaters when the mercury starts to drop significantly this winter. August 4, 2015
It has Held's quality and the Airstream II is cool I bought these gloves because I have been wearing a pair of very high tech Held Gloves for about eight or nine years and I ride a lot and ride hard. My other gloves simply wear out the cheap cowhide in two years. These Airstream II gloves fit a little snug getting them on and I ordered 2XL 11 but once they are on they fit like a . . . Sorry. The air moves through them and in this hot summer this is what I needed. July 30, 2015

Bryan V: BMW owners magazine review Aug 18, 2015
Ben C: It looks like the best summer glove for the money. It appears to have the best combination of venting and protection. Aug 18, 2015
Allan P: I need a lot of airflow for Texas summers with a lot of protection. I'm hoping that the gauntlet part of this glove is long enough to stay under or over my jacket sleeve. I tried the Held Sambia nice glove but too short. Aug 9, 2015
robert e l: cool gloves,hot in texas,still protection needed Aug 1, 2015

cruz g: Revzilla review of glove Mar 26, 2015
Michael D: After my first paid of Held gloves it is difficult to go back to anything else, so when I needed summer gloves with more protection than I have with my present ones this was an easy choice. Mar 22, 2015
Thomas D: I have been eyeing this item for a while now and when it appeared on the best gear of 2015 list, I decided to buy it as I trust the opinion of revzilla. Mar 18, 2015

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
Kevan J: Replaced older pair that fell apart from use Sep 9, 2014
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

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gary H: I live in the desert southwest and I wear my Helds in Summer, Fall, Spring and part of Winter. I ride a fully faired touring bike so my hands are not out in the wind. However, the only time it gets too cold is in the morning in the winter. That is when I break out the heated gloves. In the southwest these are easily 3 season gloves. Jul 18, 2015

Jose V: Hi Randy,

I've ridden in 5 degree C (41 deg F) weather with these gloves. At 5 degrees, my hands were cold. Not painful cold, but uncomfortable. That same day it warmed up to about 12 deg C (54 deg F) and my hands were fine. Hope this helps.

Ronald H: I felt that they were a little too well ventilated when it starts getting cooler. They're great for summer (I'm in VA). I added the Held Rainstars with Goretex lining for spring, fall and summer rain. The two are a good combination. Jul 17, 2015
Reply to Ronald Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
steve a: I have Barkbuster Storm guards which helps, but on cooler days I have used silk liner inserts (AeroStich) successfully. The combination really seems to extend the use of these gloves, and puts off moving to a cold weather glove. Jul 17, 2015

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.

A S asked: I've already purchased this product and Anthony says in his review video that the gloves are not waterproof. I'm not too familiar with leather. My gloves have seen the rain a few times and I'm not sure what sort of damage water will have on them. Are there any maintenance routines I should have with my gloves with or without rain? Sep 19, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Leonard T: The best thing to do would be to let them dry themselves out. Meaning without putting them in heat from the sun or any other means, it'll over dry them and they'll start to crack. If you can afford it I'd buy the waterproof Held gloves and if not there is a spray that helps make them repel water but it has to be applied more than once especially if you're in the rain more than a couple of times a month or so.
