Good stuff! I shudder to think how many pairs of motorcycle gloves I've owned over the past 40 years. So I have some experience in this area. One normally thinks of mesh gloves as being "a little better than nothing". These Helds are are whole different creature. I would qualify the level of protection as "significant". Do I want to test that belief? No. As good as racing gauntlets? No. But pretty danged acceptable for street gloves. Comfy and flow air as well as any of the dozens of mesh gloves I've owned.

Quality construction and materials. These gloves are well put together and should provide adequate protection in the event of a fall. The sizing seems to be spot on for Held and the price from Revzilla was competitive. January 13, 2014
A bit disappointed but recommend Love the protection on the palm and wrist. Used measurement on site to determine my size but it was way too large. The gray/white color scheme is horrendous but was the only color available. January 4, 2014
Fantasic Glove This is my 5th pair of gloves, first pair of Held. These gloves fit absolutely perfect. I wear a 9 and it fits as a glove should. The build quality is fantastic and these gloves look and feel very stout. I'm very pleased with them and would definately recommend November 18, 2013
Nice gloves Very well made, solid construction and they look great. I would prefer if they were a little longer (to cover the wrist) but otherwise nice gloves September 6, 2013
Poor Quality I have had these gloves for a little over a month now, some of the stitching looked a little ragged out of the package. Now after less than 3000 miles the stitching on the right index finger has completely come undone over a one inch (and growing) area. These will be going back to the manufacturer, for a refund if I can manage it; I don't want another pair. Spend your money elsewhere.... September 3, 2013
Nice glove but will have a short life. This glove fits me very well and is quite comfortable. Unfortunately, after some 3,000 miles, the fabric is starting to fray. These gloves will probably only last me 10,000 miles. I recommend the glove only if it is quite comfortable for you and you are prepared to replace after some 10,000 miles. Otherwise look for something else. September 2, 2013
Very nice glove I wanted a summer glove as I so going on a 5 day trip. The Held glove are avalable in large sizes so I got a size 12 and they are great. You can feel the air flow thru the glove.and the grip is nice also. After wearing these for 5 days in a row They fit better then the frist day. Will be ordering a fall glove from Held soon August 26, 2013

Patrick S: They don't actually work fit me so sold them Apr 22, 2014
David P: Held is awesome. Love them. Apr 22, 2014
Christopher T: Sent back. Poor quality control. Was shipped with separation at seam near thumb. To bad. I liked them. Mar 16, 2014
Michael P: Quality build and protection from this company. Feb 9, 2014
Lee W: I have another pair of these gloves I bought last year from revzilla and they fit perfectly and my hands stay cool when it's hot out. Just wanted the grey pair to go with my grey Klim Latitude jacket. The shorter cuff works well with the longer sleeves of the jacket. Dec 26, 2013
Jerry G: I wanted to replace my aging Held Airstream gloves and the reviews were good. Oct 28, 2013
Patrick D: I was looking fo something I can use in the hot summer time which provides good protection for adventure riding. Sep 15, 2013
Andrew S: I like a short glove with a bit of wrist protection, and these fit the bill. There is a seam that runs over the carpal bone of the thumb that's quite uncomfortable. I did try a size up but they were way too big. My first pair blew a seam on the first day of a 10 day trip. A replacement is on it's way. Venting and feel are very good. I wouldn't purchase these again. I think the high end Helds are worth it, but these are over priced for what you get IMO. Aug 9, 2013

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".
