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".

Held Rodney Gloves 4.6 5 76 76
Great Gloves I live in Florida and require a breathable glove but also high in safety features. The Held Rodney fit the bill exactly as advertised. Perfect fit, great airflow, and loads of safety features. Worth every penny!! November 16, 2015
Good glove with one major drawback Fit well, good air flow and flexibility, but the face shield wiper rubber protrudes inside, all along the index finger. After a few miles, having the sharp ridge pressing against your finger gets very annoying. Maybe I can turn the glove inside out and cut this down, but for $120, not good. November 12, 2015
great summer glove Bought these gloves for riding in hot Texas summers. They are outstanding gloves with excellent air flow. I have about 10k miles on these gloves so far. They are a little faded, but otherwise still in good condition. October 24, 2015
Nice Gloves The best thing I can say about these gloves is that I forget that I have them on. I can't say that I notice the ventilation much, but even on the hottest days they are comfortable. I have used the little windshield wiper. It works great and does not affect the flexibility of the glove. Overall, I am very happy with these gloves. They look great and you can literally wear them all day. September 10, 2015
Great product, accurate sizing For most of my working life I had to wear gloves on a daily basis, and my size was always just on the borderline between medium and large-medium was a hair too small, large was a bit too, well, large. I purchased these in Tan, size large, and in in a triumph of hope over experience, they're just a hair too large. To be more specific, perfect in the palm and thumb, and just a hair too long in the index, ring, and pinky fingers. I wonder whether I would not have been better off with mediums, and a hope that they would stretch. Don't read this as a complaint about the product, the problem is my hands, not the gloves! Airflow is good, as is the construction quality, and feel on the controls is excellent. I would recommend this product! September 7, 2015
Excellent, so far... I bought these gloves for South Texas heat and humidity. So far, they are outstanding! I've had several long days of riding, and the airflow is excellent - hands never got hot. Only reason they didn't get full marks is I've only had them a few weeks, and only time will tell the durability tale. I have large hands with somewhat short fingers. I ordered a half size below my actual size. When they arrived they fit quite snug, but have broken in perfectly. I have a little excess finger length (but I always do, no surprise here). Love them. September 7, 2015
great pair of gloves they fit perfectly and very comfortable, the only thing ill complain is the velcro adjustment on wrist, is kinda loose other than that feel great! September 4, 2015
Comfortable and well made valuing my hands , as we all should, I have been picky about gloves. having heard some years ago Held gloves we're no longer made in Germany I switched from wearing them to U.S. sourced gloves ( primarily Helimot). This is my first pair of Held since and I have been impressed with their quality. August 31, 2015

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.

Brett L: 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.

mike f asked: I have the Held Goretex 2 in 1 gloves in size 10 (xl) and I am wondering about how these gloves compare. Mine have so much fabric in there that I am worried that the sizing will be different.

Any ideas?

Howard B: I can't compare as I only had the Held Rodney gloves. However, I found the sizing was appropriate for me and these gloves were extremely comfortable to wear, light and airy for summer riding (while providing adequate protection) and became my go to gloves (I have about five different types of gloves to pick from) in all conditions except wet weather. Unfortunately I lost one on a trip last year but I definitely intend buying a new pair for the next summer Down Under. Mar 31, 2015

Jaimie M: Hi. yes the rodneys are designed to be a much looser fit..I believe in order to have the high air flow. .I have the steves and rodneys they are the best gloves I have ever had., but yes very differnt fit.If you get a size down they might fit tighter but also not have the same air flow as with the looser fit.

Jerry B: I would think that as long as you were in the same brand, the sizing would be the same. Nice thing about dealing with Revzilla, size exchanges are super easy! One order a few years back, it took three trys before getting a pair that felt just right. Apr 1, 2015

GREG G: Hey Mike,

I have/had several pairs of HELD gloves in different styles and have
always found them true to size. So a size 10 Rodney should fit just like a
a size 10 Goretex 2 in 1.

Hope that helps.

Kevin S: These were my 4th pair of Helds. I found the ran a little big. But as I ride in Texas heat, I didn't mind the slight looseness. I really like them and would recommend them highly. I would buy them again. Mar 31, 2015

Brandon I: I got a medium glove and it fits very true to sizes that I have tried on from other manufacturers, the gloves flow a ton of air and are great if you are riding in the heat. Apr 6, 2015

Gary S: No, but on the beige gloves, the black dye from the fingers ran into the leather on the palm where there was a lot of rub. Never onto my hands.

Most comfy gloves I have. Even though a seem split on the finger, which seemed early to fall apart, Im buying another pair.

Jerry B: My black gloves have become wet several times. I don't recall any dye ever transferring to my hands. My gloves are 2 years old and do have a lot of sun fading which doesn't look too good. I will go with the tan gloves next time. That color should not fade so bad. Mar 23, 2015

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
Reply to Roger Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
