Held Rodney glove (Tan) great gloves Purchased the Tan version of the Held Rodney. The size 10 fitment was perfect, normally wear XL in most gloves. Gloves were pre-formed somewhat and seem to be well constructed. Should hold up for a considerable time. Would purchase again without hesitation. April 14, 2014
Absolute Excellence! So much air flow you can feel it while walking. Incredibly easy velcro clasps. Perfect pre-curve, perfect fit. I've had issues with short pinky fingers on other gloves, but not these. Incredibly comfortable. Extra leather reinforcement in all the right areas, without being cumbersome. I haven't had them for too long, and haven't crashed in them, so no comment on the durability. The construction seems so good though that I'm hopeful they will last a long time. The armor sits nicely on the heel of the hand and the top of the knuckles, and the fit plus stretch panels keep it in place. The soft armor makes them not appropriate for the track, but that should be obvious. They aren't exactly a bargain, but at this price, I got much more than I expected. I would absolutely recommend these gloves. April 7, 2014
Good quality, simple style, comfortable, light. Having been happy with my winter Helds for the last season I thought I'd replace my old tattered summer gloves with a pair of Rodneys'. I am happy with the choice, they are comfortable, good feel and reasonably well ventilated. Protection still seems quite good. My only minor issue is that they are a bit loose when compared with my winter Held's, probably a half size larger. I think the Rodney's are probably the true size and my winter Helds are smaller (both are XL) but it would be nice if the sizing was a little more consistent. December 16, 2013
My Last Summer Gloves - Held Rodney In the last 7 years I have purchased about 7 summer gloves. Six of them either caused hand numbness, had poor airflow, were too loose, or generally didn't fit "like a glove". I waited about 4 months for Held Rodney's to be available at Revzilla again and I have not been disappointed. These gloves solved all of my problems with fit and general comfort. I also don't have nearly as bad a problem dealing with numbness on long rides. Unfortunately, its now Winter and they had to go into the top case until April. I STRONGLY recommend these gloves. Be careful with fit though because I also own Held Agadir summer gloves in the same size but they are slightly smaller than the Rodney's. Held sizing can vary in the same stated size.

Best Cruiser Gloves Ever I really love these gloves. I've been using them daily for several months now. They flow air nicely, yet not so breezy as to make you cold on colder mornings. The built-in wiper is fantastic for your face shield. They got wet in rain a couple times and dried fast and the leather did not wilt or get hard. Plus, they operate my iPhone perfectly without needing anything or without having to take my gloves off. October 25, 2013
Beautiful workmanship, comfortable fit I waited a month or so for the Held Rodney glove to become available in my size (10). As advertised, the leather is soft and supple, and is doubled in critical areas. No gimmicks/graphics/carbon fiber, so these black gloves are subtle, as befitting my distinguished age. I was lucky on sizing, tho, because my hand measures at 9 inches and a little extra -- but I guessed that my longish fingers indicated a size 10, which fit perfectly. Be prepared to take advantage of Revzilla's return policy until you get the right size. It'll be worth it. September 30, 2013
You Get What You Pay For There are cheaper summer gloves on the market, but none of them have the features, fit and quality of these gloves. Held uses premium materials - kangaroo and goatskin, Coolmax, Superfabric - which sets them above the others. The gloves are lightweight, but offer considerable protection. The cuff is just the right length. not too long, yet it goes under my jacket without problems. The cuff can be adjusted and secured in ways that should satisfy everyone. Sun protection is important to me, and the cuff length covers the gap between glove and jacket perfectly. About fit: I found sizing to be accurate. I ordered size 10/XL, which are slightly too large for me, but I find that if I order a 9/L, the thumb and fingers are too short (I wear a 9.5 in the Steves). So I live with a very slight looseness but I'm able to reach the bike's controls. YMMV, hands and gloves are hard to compare. Revzilla makes it easy to swap gloves to get the fit you like.

Don't by Held gloves made in China! I bought these gloves just 3 months ago. The gloves were never crashed or abused, but the seam on the right hand index finder started to rip off. I'm very disappointed with the quality of this gloves! I had several pairs of Held gloves in the past and never experienced such issue. But, then I noticed, that these gloves were made in China, when my 2 other pairs (used for 5 year and still in perfect condition!) were made in Hungary. That explained everything! So, for me it was the last pair of Held gloves I'll ever buy. Held used to be an excellent brand in the past and well worth a premium price. Unfortunately, not anymore :(. August 29, 2013

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.

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.

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".
