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

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 Rainstar Gore-Tex Gloves 4.4 5 24 24
Need better quality control? My husband bought 1 pair that disappeared in the mail. Rev-zilla sent another pair (size-10) that were way too short in the fingers, and too large in the palm. We sent them back, and then the 1st pair showed up- lol same size, but they fit much better and he kept them. After about a year here's what he says: They have a nice feel. No pressure points or scatchy seams. The leather is subtle and they were comfortable from day-1. They're too hot to wear over 70-75'F but felt comfortable down to the high 40'sF. After that they cool quickly, but I was comfortable to 42'F with unshielded or heated grips. The leather over the knuckles is a bit too soft and is being pecked (chipped) away slowly. The gauntlet is just a bit short for my tastes, but does go over the sleeve. It didn't rain much last winter, so I didn't get to try out the waterproofing in a Florida downpour, but my hands stayed dry in minor showers. It was kind of a bummer that this glove said "Made In China" though. They're ok, but Im going to look for something a bit warmer with a longer gauntlet. September 23, 2015
NEED MORE BREAK-IN THAN MOST HELD GLOVES I've worn exclusively Held gloves ("Steves" for many years, but not the new version), and these are the first that truly require some break-in time. The left is tighter than the right (another first for me with Held). DO TAKE THE TIME TO BREAK THESE IN BEFORE EMBARKING ON A LONG RIDE... Since I haven't yet tested them on my upcoming long trip, all I can say is that they are well-made and handsome as always. Will report more when I've put a few thousand miles on them. August 18, 2015
Great Rain Gloves I just recently took these gloves on a 7000 mile trip during July and August. My primary gloves were lightweight summer gloves with the Held gloves used during the rain and colder mountain passes. The gloves remained dry during hours of riding in heavy rain. The gloves breathe well and were comfortable until the temperatures began approaching 90 degrees. After that, the gloves were warm. I did wear the gloves in temperatures down to 42 degrees in the rain and they were comfortable with the heated grips on the low setting. I was very satisfied with the performance of the gloves and will continue to keep these gloves on the bike for cold weather or rain. These gloves are expensive, but the performance was great. August 17, 2015
Don't buy into the hype. Not exactly sure why all the hype for these gloves. I own a pair of Held summer gloves which I love. Ordered these in the same size (8) and they were way, WAY too small. Not sure why a company can't figure out how to standardize sizes throughout their line. The concept apparently is too far-fetched for Held to figure out. Any way, I sent the gloves back (Revzilla was great about it!) and order the next size up (9)...Guess what??? One of the gloves actually fits, the other is as tight as the size 8 was that I sent back? Maybe I have two different sized hands? NO! I measured the gloves (across the palm, length of digits, etc) and they are two different sizes. Not impressed with the *cough* quality control of Held. Frankly, these gloves offer nothing that a bunch of other glove makers offer. At much lower prices. June 25, 2015
Very high quality product Very snug fit at fist. Once breaks in they feel great June 15, 2015
Great gloves for Bay Area These gloves are very comfortable and keep my hands warm. They also appear to have great protection (which I haven't tested). I commute to SF about 1 hour each way and it's been in the low 50's in the AM. I'm guessing that your hands might start getting a bit cold in the 40's without heated grips. As for fit, the fingers are a bit shorter than rev it...which works for me. These fit over or under the cuff, even with a Klim jacket with small cuffs. These are great winter gloves for California. May 31, 2015
Fit of right glove smaller than left I have a another pair of Held gloves (size 9) that I love. This pair is a size 10.. Fit on right glove is tight. Pinky finger and thumb get a little numb after an hour or so. both length and diameter on these two digits is small. Have not been in any rain yet. I might have to get these wet, then try to stretch them. The fit on left glove is very good. I have pretty average finger length, diameter. My A-star sp-8 gloves are xl, fit great, finger length, palm size everything good. As far as warmth, for me on my R1200RT, probably a 30-75 degree glove. Bike has lots of wind protection and heated grips. Not much air is passing thru these gloves They look to be well made, sturdy gloves. May 27, 2015
Very happy Everything you would expect from a premium glove. These are not really designed for airflow. They do run smaller than other gloves in the market, but since they are leather I expect some loosening as I get to wear them more. Great construction. Overall very happy. May 25, 2015

Nicholas T asked: How is the fit of this glove? I have a Held Agadir which is a size 8 (M), should I expect this Rainstar to fit the same way?

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael I: The Rainstar should fit true to size compared with other Held gloves but sizing runs a bit small compared with other brands. I'm a size 9-9.5 in other manufacturer's gloves but I ended up in a size 10 Rainstar. I used the sizing guidance on the Revzilla product page and it gave me an accurate fit. Jun 1, 2014

steve y: My hand meausres a 9.5 what was yours. Im guessing I should get a 10?
Thanks for your help
