G U: GoreTex glove with good protection and Held quality. Hopefully I chose the correct size. I had Air'n'Dry in size 9 and they were too small. Chose size 10 now and hope they'll fit. Aug 17, 2014
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

Daniel O: I believe you would find them very comfortable down into the 30 degree fahrenheit range without heated grips. I wore them into Canada in May comfortably without heated grips.

We experienced a lot of rain every day on the trip down through the states. My hands stayed dry although the leather really soaked up the water. I don't think these replace the need for a long distance rain glove. They are track ready however and provide what I'd expect to be an excellent level of protection in an unfortunate slide down the pavement and are certainly capable of some rain conditions.

John D: Depends on how cold the winter is, I guess. They are not insulated gloves - just good leather and a Gore-tex lining - with some venting in the fingers. These are my go-to gloves when temps are between 45-75F. I turn on heated grips when temps are below 45 and switch to Gerbings when temps get much below that. Apr 4, 2015

Ben N: They will keep you warm for as low as 8 degrees celcius here in Canada. If it gets any colder you need heated grips. Apr 4, 2015

Krish K: Yes, I do not use these gloves if the weather moves 75F+. I love these gloves, but these are not true all weather gloves. Great in fall, early winter and spring (45 to 70 F) weather. May 25, 2015

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".
