Held Rodney Gloves - Good Gloves
The fit and finish on this product from Held is superb.
The gloves feel sturdy, no missed stitching or other manufacturing blemish.
Remediated negative – the helmet wipe did not break in after an accumulated 10 hours of riding and hurt my index finger; flipped the glove inside out and trimmed it with cuticle scissors and it fits… like a glove.

Vented gloves that really vent
Have had vented gloves in the past. Lots of holes that do not really do much. With the Rodney gloves, hands on the grips, fingers together and you really do not feel anything. Spread your fingers just a little and you can feel the air above and below your palms. These are great.

You will not be disappointed!
I spent forever comparing pretty much every glove on Revzilla. This glove hits everything I needed. Great protection on the side of the hand and heel of the palm, good air flow, subdued yet classic styling so they don't scream "I'm a motorcycle glove!", great comfort and fit, and even some unique features. The index finger squeegee doesn't give me any discomfort - contrary to some of the reviews I've seen - and actually functions quite well. Price is still a touch high for my liking, but other than that they are PERFECT!

Breezy and beautiful
The Held Rodney gloves are light and soft with great tactile feel. The palms have a slightly tacky feel on the controls, a feeling I've really begun to appreciate, as it gives me a feeling of being very connected with my machine.

Air flow through the top of the glove isn't super, but is enough to keep me reasonably comfortable on all but the hottest days. And since the palms are perforated as well, when my hands get hot, I just have to lift my fingers a bit to get great flow through the whole glove and cool my entire hand instantly.

The much ballyhooed visor wiper doesn't seem to be any better or any more useful than just using the side of your gloved finger, so I'm not sure why that gets talked up so much. It certainly isn't obtrusive, though.

The short of it is that these were exactly the summer gloves I was looking for, and I love riding with them.

Best I've seen
After my Tourmaster summer gloves wore out I was looking for more protection in a non-black glove - in the desert sun that is important. There are very few options available. I tried a pair of Alpinestars but they were uncomfortable, the knuckle protection was too tight and dug into my fingers. The DAINESE mesh/leather summer gloves were too hot, they had no airflow, the only perforations were in the palms. The Rodney is the highest quality, with the best airflow and most comfortable of all the gloves I have seen.

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.

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.

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.

Nice fit. I have a wide hand so I ordered a size 10. The fit is very nice but the fingers are a bit long. Still, very nice glove.

Quality doesn't come cheap
I own about ten pairs of gloves but these became my glove of choice after one ride. The kangaroo palms are soft and give you great feel for the controls. I was a little concerned about goat and kangaroo for durability but the real glove is much sturdier than they appear in the video. Not big and bulky just a feeling that the quality will last a long, long time. I intend to wear them on long highway tours this summer and even though I have gloves that flow air better, the Rodney flows enough and has gotten the nod to be a starter. Last year I was going to buy this glove but the back order was way too long so I settled for another cheaper pair . I should have waited. They aren't cheap but the quality and workmanship are worth it.

What makes RevZilla work so well online is the mountain of feedback from other riders, your product selection with video reviews to help with comparing one excellent product to another, and website usability. The Held Rodney reviews persuaded me to try them. Other gloves on my short-list: RevIt Monster 2, RevIt Chevron 2, and Dainese Essential.

Paul Y on Jul 31, 2015
I'm a new rider so I purchased this based on the video, the reviews and what seemed to me like good hand protection for riding and falls. I also liked the style a lot and I chose black so it could match with most things, I plan to commute to work on motorcycle as well as some touring.

These gloves have been everything I wanted! I purchased the tan color, so they do not get nearly has hot in the Tennessee sun. And I can easily open up my fingers while riding and get a nice cooling rush of air through them. All this while still comfortable and getting decent crash protection.

James C on Jul 19, 2016
My right hand is 8.5" in diameter and my left is 8"?
A shopper on May 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
mike f on Mar 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Regarding the black, does the dye run if your hands get damp / sweaty?
Dustin K on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought the gloves in the tan color not black but the palm is black and I have not experienced any staining due to the dye. These gloves have a lining and the only time I have experienced staining is with unlined, dyed gloves.
Does this glove allow you to use a smartphone with them on? Can you touch the screen of say an iphone and get response?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They do not. At least it doesn't work on my Samsung Galaxy. But they are awesome gloves for riding a motorcycle though :-) of I ever manage to wear them out, I'll likely try to get another pair just like it.
where are these gloves made?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The tag in mine say "made in china". But they are very nice gloves, and are holding up well. My "go to" gloves of the collection I have.
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.
Paul R on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I am interested in getting the Rodney glove. I have an older Steve glove that is size 8.5. Would you recommend size 8 or 9 as I don't see half sizes available?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would go with size 9, I think the held gloves run a little small. Without a doubt the rodney gloves are the best summer gloves I've owned, and I've been riding over 35 years.
