Held Race-Tex Gore-Tex Gloves 4 5 2 2
Last gloves you'll need Build quality is excellent and the smell of the leather is worth the cost alone. Not insulated, so your hands aren't sweaty, but totally windproof so you don't end up with frozen fingertips. I feel very well protected with the combination of Superfabric, Kevlar, and plastic armor over the ulna. July 18, 2014
So far, so good... I've had my Race-Tex for about a month, so there isn't a lot to say at this point. The gloves look great, appear to be well-made, durable, with plenty of protection, and of course Gore-Tex. I've had them out in the rain quite a bit and they have performed great. I thought the Superfabric was a gimmick until I saw Klim using it on their higher-end gear. Other than the possibility that they may be a hair too small for me, they have been great. Based on the sizing guidelines online I ordered a size 9. My middle and 'ring' fingers on both hands touch the very tips of the gloves and I find myself occasionally pulling the gloves forward a bit to reduce the pressure. They are such a close fit that a good long wear-in period might fix that. Either way it hasn't been a problem yet. I have yet to see how they do on a good long run. With no mention of RevZilla competitors or pricing, I did end up pay quite a bit more than I needed to. I'm not sure why, but there was a significant price delta between RevZilla and some local suppliers, but it was too late to cancel my order and didn't make sense to pay to ship them back.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Paul T: Quality, quality, quality.
Then there is great comfort and fit. It's all good.
Sizing is a hassle though. This is my third attempt to get the right size. They run small, and the sizing charts seem to be way off, at least for my large hands.

T O: I have always worn Held Gloves and I've been wanting to replace my Akiras' but was unsure if I wanted the PhantomII or the Titan. After viewing Anthony's review and enthusiasm I decided to go with the new Race Tex. Apr 23, 2014
Andy A: Need new gloves and want waterproof/high protection gloves. Cold weather not a huge issue as I have heated grips on my BMW. Mar 25, 2014

David C asked: Hello there!

Im looking at the Held Race Tex waterproof glove. I live in Seattle, lots of rain, and I am a daily commuter.
I am asking your recommendation on size for this and other Held gloves.
It has sizes 10 and 11. My hand measures out to a 10.25(ten and one quarter). What is your recommendation?
I want to go with the maximum protection I can.

Dustin W: I use these to commute as well in Seattle. My hand measures at 10" and these in size 10 are as tight as I am comfortable wearing, especially on my right (dominant) hand. IMO you may want an 11.

I think that the glove sizing at 10 doesn't account fully for the waterproof liner, as my old Held gloves (Galaxy) which while are definitely 'broken-in' weren't so snug.

I like these gloves, they are comfortable, and as they have broken-in are getting better fitting.

Mark D: I selected my size (9L) based on the sizing chart provided. They are brand new so I cannot comment on how they fit after a decent work in period. I would say they "just" fit. Finger tips touch the very tips of the gloves, but without excessive contact.

Since that have the gore-tex x-trafit interior, I suspect they might not stretch much. An extra half mm on the fingers would be good I think. But not enough to order another size up.

Michael B asked: I just received my Held Race-Tex Gore-Tex Gloves, and they fit great, but I am unsure about the placement of the superfabric impact zone on the heel of the hand. Mine sits on the right on the fleshy heel, but leave the hard bone just below completely uncovered.

So, is the impact zone supposed to line up with the natural fleshy area along the outside of the heel of your palm, or should it reach a little lower to cover some of the more unpadded bone just below that?

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".
