Held Rodney Gloves 4.6 5 46 46
Another great glove from Held Full disclosure I own 3 sets of gloves from Held. Phantom II's, 2in1's and now these Rodneys. I purchased these as a quick on and off summer glove/spare pair for passengers and they've quickly become my everyday pair for commuting and around town riding. At size 9, the fit and comfort I get out of Helds is better than the other brands I've tried. That said these Rodneys fit just a bit tighter than my other two Helds, but only slightly and nothing bothersome. It gets better after breaking them in..Finish is great, leather is soft and evenly colored, no issues with the seams or velcro. Airflow is awesome with almost every surface of the glove done in perforated leather. Protection is adequate for the type of glove it is. The supple leather is reinforced in all the right areas with a dash of super fabric on the palms (wish there was a bit more). Style is relative, but I like them for their low-key look.They pair well with a more plain traditional black leather jacket. While expensive (biggest downside), these are a great choice if you're looking for high-quality, low-key, short cuff summer gloves. September 8, 2014
HELD Rodney Pretty nice glove. I ordered and discussed with phone staff. I have big hands so went with safe order of XL. Very nice fit do not have to struggle to get on or off but if I were to order again I might try L. And I may but then which do I wear? They do allow air to come thru as they are perforated leather fingers and back. Although I feel they are a bit expensive we shall see how long they last. R September 8, 2014
Very nice gloves, but the sizing chart is slightly large. I bought these gloves to use for summer riding, and they perform very well in the 70-100deg. range. Airflow is excellent, and the gloves are very comfortable as long as you keep your fingernails trimmed. The only issue I had was the sizing. My palm measured 8 3/4" around, so i rounded up to a size 9. Turns out that was the wrong direction. I have a fairly square palm with shorter fingers, and the finger length for the size 9 was too long for me. I returned the 9s and ordered a size 8 instead, which fits well. There is plenty of give in the back of the glove to accomodate a wide hand, so if your fingers run short for your handsize feel free to round the size downward. September 2, 2014
Very good air flow, style, comfort This is a great looking glove that flows plenty of air. The fit is very comfortable even though the fingers are slightly long for my hand. They are a premium glove with a premium price and I would buy them again. August 18, 2014
Best short glove I've tried The fit is right, the airflow can't be beat, the comfort is top notch, and you still feel reasonably protected. Highly recommend these gloves. August 11, 2014
another well made glove from Held The only glove I've ever had that fit like a glove is the 'Steve' from Held in a long size. These are close. Some reviewers complained about the finger length being too long, for me my finger tips are up against the seam, but they are the best summer glove I've come across. August 5, 2014
I am taking it to a leather shop to fix my problem. Afterwards I'll rate it more thoroughly Beautiful gloves. I'm a 100,000 mile Held glove lover so when the Rodneys appeared I was happy. They fit like a, well, glove EXCEPT in the area of the notch between my right thumb and fingers they shorted me a wee bit of leather. It actually began to ache on my first ride and I have not worn them since. My hand is "pushing" forward but the lack of play in the area is straining my hand. The left glove is perfect. I'm taking my gloves to Anthony's Leather in Corona del Mar, CA next week when we're there on vacation and I'll write a report on a fix (I hope) afterwards. August 2, 2014
great summer glove This is the "second generation" Rodney glove. I have several pairs of Held gloves, and the Rodneys run true to size. The perforations and the Coolmax lining make for a great hot weather glove. A little light in the protection category, but that's the trade-off for a perforated summer glove. I also have a pair of first generation Rodney gloves, which are a touch shorter, have hard plastic knuckle protection and perforations between the fingers only; not as comfortable in hot weather. These have the usual Held quality, which is to say excellent. July 28, 2014

Ponyboy312: 7.

I got the 7 and it fits perfect. These gloves can be sized down 1-2 sizes. In my case, going down from the recommended 8 to a 7 did the trick. I hope this helps other riders.

Levy4u: My hands are both 9" in diameter and I wear the XL. Using the sizing method they recommend:

"To measure, place your right hand flat on a table or other flat surface and measure under your palm from the knuckle of your pinkie to the knuckle of your index finger."

I have a 4" width which would put me in the L gloves but I found the finger length to be slightly short and this caused my fingers to be jammed into the gloved pretty good.

Paul R asked: I was wondering if Held's sizing has changed from about eight years ago. I currently have an eight old pair that are size 6.5, but when I measure my hand, as instructed, I get 8.5" which is size eight. Should I stick with my old size or go with the indicated size for my measurement? Thanks. Jul 18, 2014

Roger S: My size 11 Rodney gloves are just slightly larger than my Held gloves from five or six years ago, mainly around the smallest part of the cuff when donning the gloves. I don't think that I'd want to go with a size 10, as the 11 fits pretty well. Sizing seems consistent with the other Held Gloves that I've had in the past. The Rodneys seem a bit thicker than my old gloves, but flow a decent amount of air at speed. I'm pretty well pleased with them. Jul 18, 2014

John W: I'd go with your hand measurement and the size chart. My hand measures about 9-1/2 inches, which is size 10, and the fit is good.

Held's sizing has been consistent in my experience. I bought the Rodney gloves a week or two ago, same size as my first Held gloves, the original Steve (with rivets, not SuperFabric) which I bought several years ago.

Steve M: Hi Paul, I am new to Held. I ordered a size 9 after measuring my hand and although they feel great, they seem a "smidge" large... so in your case I would probably go with the 8, as I'm guessing they will probably "stretch" a little over time anyway. If they seem too tight, RevZilla will always exchange the for free... good luck! Jul 18, 2014

leo i: I measured as per Held size chart, also 8.5" and bought a size 9 Rodney. They fit my hands perfect. I also have a Held Twin size 9, that fit perfect. My Held Steve II (rivets on palm, about four years old) are size 8 and felt just a tad bit tight, but still comfy. Hope this helps. Jul 18, 2014

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".
