Held Rainstar Gore-Tex Gloves 4.4 5 18 18
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
not inexpensive but worth it I have worn these from low 40's (w/ heated grips, no hand guards) to low 70's, and been comfortable. I wore these in a driving rain for 30 mi and maintained warm, dry hands. Break in took a few hours but that is to be expected with leather. OK they are kinda expensive but I feel you get what you pay for with these gloves. If I lost them I'd buy another pair without hesitation. Beautiful workmanship on the build, when I first received them I gave 'em a good look over. Impressive quality. May 10, 2015
You can count on Held This is my third pair of Held gloves, and they do not disappoint. Fit is good (albeit a little small on this model). Workmanship is excellent. These gloves are warm, though I have not had a chance to try the in the rain or hot weather. The signature squeegee on the left hand remains a great feature. April 20, 2015
Terrific for wet weather I can't believe the extreme quality and attention to detail in Held gloves. I have the Held Short Race and really like them for every day riding in mild to warm weather. I live in Northern CA so it doesn't get really cold here, but I needed something for when it's a bit chilly and rainy, and these are perfect 3 season warm. Extremely good waterproofing, tested many times, and the left glove even has a little face shield wiper built in. These come up a ways: i'd call them shorter gauntlet gloves, which fit nicely underneath your touring jacket. On the rare occasion where I've had these out in 35-40 weather they are a bit chilly, as they have no thermal liner. The armor is awesome and doesn't get in your way controlling the bike. The only downside is the glove fingers can not control a smart phone screen. March 2, 2015
Very nice glove, runs small I've got about 1,500 miles on these gloves, so far, and I'm very happy with them. I had to return the first order to get a larger size, but I"m pleased otherwise. They are expensive, and I expect them to last for quite awhile. November 24, 2014
review is on fit only! I'm writing this to help others with longer hands & fitting. These gloves were suggested to me as having longer fingers than other brands. By Held's size chart my hand measured >9", a size 9. From my wrist to the tip of my middle finger is 8". To make sure my fingers would fit, size 10 was recommended. Gloves arrived, and I tried gloves on. The palm area was WAY too big, the thumb was fine, but all the fingers were too short. Gloves are going back. Next up...Ladies gloves!!?? (no pink) ;) November 7, 2014
Comfortable, high quality waterproof gauntlets I purchased these for early and late season wear when I'm more interested in staying warm enough than in staying cool enough. For the hot days I have a pair of Klim Induction gloves and they are perfect for that duty. In cooler weather if I can keep the wind off, my heated grips provide all I need to be comfortable. The Rainstars felt broken in the moment I put them on. The second pair, anyway. I'm normally and XL and first ordered these in size 11. I could get them on, but just barely. A quick replacement with a set of 12s and I was good to go. They aren't loose, but they don't bind anywhere and all the padding and velcro lines up just right. The gloves are quite sturdy with thick leather in all the stress areas, but the palms are soft and have good feel on the controls. Cuffs can go inside or outside my Roadcrafter jacket. I had them out for about 45 minutes at 35F and with the heated grips it was easily tolerable. I sure wouldn't have picked these for riding through the heat of summer, but likewise I didn't want a true winter glove with all of the bulk for cool weather rides. Excellent gloves. April 17, 2014

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

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".
