Held Race-Tex Gore-Tex Gloves 4.5 5 19 19
Held did it again, great gloves Held continues to win my loyalty due to the quality of materials and workmanship. There are no uncomfortable seams or hot spots on Helds. They don't pinch any pressure points because they really take their time sewing and trimming them (check out the Held YouTubes). But of course you pay for that with the price being premium, then they last a very long time. I have a pair of Phantom II which has been a pretty famous glove over the years for it's full gauntlet protection, comfort and safety. Since many of you have a Phantom II or know someone who has, I'll focus on the differences with this updated glove. In short, there almost are differences with the Phantom II, other than this one being waterproof and maybe a tiny bit more layering, which I think is just the Gore-Tex liner. Fit is spot on. The reason Helds fit more precisely is because they come in exact sizes for your hand circumference, instead of just "S, M, L or XL". Therefore you can take 5 seconds to actually measure your hand and be rewarded with a more suitable fit. Helds require a bit of break-in to get to that worn/comfort feeling, but only a couple weeks. I put some leather conditioner on my new gloves (let it soak in, wear them while watching TV for a while, then wipe off excess) to accelerate the break-in process. If you want some daily commute gloves which will be comfortable, full gauntlet but deal with the rain, these are your gloves. The Phantoms are maybe a smidge thinner and available in more sassy colors, but not waterproof. These are my new go-to gloves for spring/fall when there's a chance of rain. July 5, 2016
Late Season Start I have too many pairs of Helds. My old racers aren't done yet, so it's been a late season start for this pair. So far they are breaking in nicely. Initial break-in had a little bunching in the palm but that is settling in nicely. This is my track, and spring/fall glove. For me the Race-Tex work better than the Phantom II's. May 11, 2016
Warm but bulky I got these as a second pair of gloves to my Held Airstream II. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Airstream left my hands a bit cold during the winter (no heated grips). These gloves did a great job of keeping my hands warm, dry, and comfy during commutes, weekend rides, and a 650 mile trip up the coast. The only downside is that because they are lined, they do have a bit of a bulky feel, which can be uncomfortable. May 10, 2016
great glove! hand is 8 inch circumference and glove fits true to size. fit and finish is top notch. leather is just starting to break in, but it felt comfortable even before. haven't had to test out safety features and hope I never have to, but I bought the glove just because of all the safety features and they are indeed formidable.

very comfortable from the minute I put them on. I bought these and then went for a long weekend ride at Deal's Gap, Tail of The Dragon, and all the surrounding roads. I put about 500 miles on the bike wearing these gloves and they worked great. Not too hot at 72 degrees out and were good at 45 degrees in the morning. I would want warmer gloves if going for a long ride at 45 and would want a glove that vents more if riding in 80+ degree weather. Can't beat the comfort! April 5, 2016
Very impressed with these gloves so far I'd normally wait a few weeks before reviewing a new product, but with a couple of very minor cons, these are very impressive gloves. This is my 3rd pair of Held gloves and they all fit very well - tight to get on, but a very snug fit with just the right amount of room at the tips of the fingers. Best of all, no bunching up in the palm, unlike some other gloves that I own. Anyway, I wore them for the first time at the weekend for a 4 hour ride. Although they felt new and a little stiff, they were immediately comfortable and have protection in the right places. They have all of the usual Held goodies, like the rubber visor wiper on the left forefinger, although I was disappointed to see that they were made in China. The quality appears not quite as good as the other Held gloves I have, which were made in Hungary, but still better than Brand A. The one negative is that the gloves felt a little warm on a sunny, 65° afternoon. My hands didn't get sweaty at all, so the Goretex was doing its job, but it doesn't bode well for warmer weather. Hopefully the flipside is that they will work better on cold days than my current all seasons gloves. They're not exactly a bargain at the current price, but then it is a very technical product and well made from quality materials, so I'm really not sure how to mark them on the value scale..

Great Glove! Typical Held fit & craftmanship The Race-Tex is my 4th pair of Held Gloves, My hand measurement is an 8.5 but I always order size 9 if half sizes are not available in the model I want. Held gloves fit snug and are phenomenal once they are broken in. The Race Tex is no exception. Its tactile feel in the palm and fingers is great. The top of the gloves are very protective and contain small vent holes in the fingers. The Race-Tex is a gauntlet glove which should fit easily over a jacket sleeve....unfortunately, this isn't the case with this model and is my only complaint. I have to carefully shimmy the gloves over the sleeve on every jacket I own and is somewhat annoying, but the overall quality of the gloves withstands this small annoyance. November 2, 2015
Awesome glove! I love Held gloves. I bought these for track day use and commuting based on the video review by Anthony - spot on!. I have very large hands and the size 12 fit me perfect (which is unusual since my fingers are long). Fit was excellent, construction is top notch. Protection is right up there with the best of them. Love the wrist since-down. The weight/thickness is a little on the heavy side compared to GP gloves but that's what you get with gore-tex gloves. Wore them to work about 5 times then did a track day with my Multistrada. Comfortable right from the start. Scored the "airflow" as average but be aware that the Ducati has hand guards that probably deflect most of the air. I'd buy these gloves again in a minute - expensive, but worth every penny!
