Held Steve Classic Gloves 4.7 5 45 45
Good fit for me These feel well built. I've seen issues mentioned regarding fit, I measured right at a 9 1/2 and these fit fine, no short fingers, which I have experienced before. No pressure points, well contoured. unlined so there is plenty of contact with the bars. May 19, 2015
Top quality and great fit. $$$ but very high quality product. I have short fat fingers and a thick hand. The short version solved these problems. I have a form fitting glove without the usual excess materials on the ends of the fingers. Initially very snug fit but broke in quickly. Great protection in the right areas should it be needed. May 4, 2015
Great Gloves - Seem a tad tight. I love these gloves. I ordered size 9.5 based on the sizing guide. They are tight, but they may stretch to fit my hands (I'm hoping) so I'm not going to exchange them. Overall they feel fantastic, super high quality construction. And they look great. April 20, 2015
Best choice for long fingers One thing I've learned, buy a helmet that fits your head. Same with gloves...I have been riding for 45 years and I have owned at least 10 different pairs of gloves in that time. My problem is that I have long fingers so I would order 2XL size which would fit but cause bunching at the palm, and even after long rides the tips of my fingers would be sore from contact with the glove tips. . The Steve Classic Held gloves, long XL fits me so much better. Plenty of room and with the correct palm fit.. no bunching. Why did I wait so long? . March 2, 2015
Solid, comfortable, good safety features. Very solid, quality built, comfortable glove for spring, early summer and fall riding. Plenty of protection, premium leathers, good gauntlet. No giant, hard knuckle protectors or other race-glove features that are or can become uncomfortable on longer, sane-speed rides.. No ventilation so probably not the best summer glove for the mid-Atlantic. No insulation so not a winter glove choice for me. The short-size option was a key selling point. Purchased them at the Revzilla store in Philly. Salesperson was great, very knowledgeable about the products. December 29, 2014
Great feel Precise sizing is great if you are a half size. Gloves have surprising good feel on controls. November 15, 2014
Fantastic Gloves Love the gloves. Expensive, but as far as motorcycle gear goes, you get what you pay for. November 10, 2014
Held is as always, a great product Gloves fit well albeit slightly long pinky. This seems to not be an issue as they wear in. My last pair was purchased in 2000 so you can imagine how well these will hold up. Excellent product. July 7, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Jeffrey S: Have been using Held Steve gloves since they had rivets on the palms. Have put well over 100,000 miles on the various pairs all over the country. Its my go-to glove for most rides. Apr 27, 2015
mick s: Best gloves out there. My first pair without the rivets. Apr 19, 2015
Hans J: It seems like it offers good protection. Plus, it's the only glove I found for long narrow hands. Mar 28, 2015
C O: Replacement for a worn out pair of same model. The Steve's have been the best gloves I have had. Looking forward to breaking in a new pair! Mar 22, 2015
Judy G: Best all around touring gloves on the market. Mar 8, 2015

William L: Have had a hard time finding Steve gloves my size in stock, now I'm ready for spring. Oct 22, 2014
Acer K: The only glove on planet Earth that comes in 'long' sizes. We'll see how it stacks up. Being tall isn't always an advantage. :\ I can't afford full custom gloves. Oct 6, 2014
Ken P: Was actually looking at the AirStream II's but were out of stock in my size. Got the Steve's because of reputation, looks, and, unlike the AirStreams, I think these will have better protection from the cold. It seems the consensus that Held are among the best riding gloves. Oct 1, 2014
Eric S: Rec from friends, reputation for fit/comfort Sep 26, 2014
Scott H: these were a specific recommendation from an experienced rider friend of mine. Jun 6, 2014
David E: A classic, literally. Also, these are the only gloves I've found that come in finger lengths. May 28, 2014
Christopher N: Had original Held Steve's, probably my favorite gloves of all time. The new version isn't quite as good, but still a pretty good glove overall. Wish they still sold the original, I don't know what changed, but i would take the originals over these new ones. Apr 28, 2014
ERic J: ADV review and a friend use to own a pair. Mar 27, 2014
Erik S: Held gloves are one of those brands that once you buy a pair with the 'roo palms you don't want anything less. My current pair of Helds are 15 years old, have survived their share of get-offs and still they are serviceable...I just felt it was time for a new pair of Helds!! Mar 18, 2014
Erwin A: I've had the same Held Steve since 2007. Love the fit, quality and durability. They've survived 2 falls and use liners to extend their use into late October. Mar 16, 2014
Bart G: I have owned before and are the best gloves I own Feb 1, 2014
Howard M: These are very good comfortable all year round gloves. Jan 3, 2014

Victor C asked: Do the fingers stretch on these gloves? Everything fits perfectly except the fingers are just 2-3 cm too short. Oct 22, 2014

Albert U: This is my second pair of Steves. The first pair's fingers were a little short for me. The gloves stretch a little but not by 2-3 cm . The stitching will break before the kangaroo leather will stretch that far. HELD offers gloves with extended finger lengths but they only add an additional cm. Try those first or size up.

Houck c/o M: Mine were a little tight at the start but stretched and conformed to a perfect fit after a couple rides. Kangaroo is particularly good at that. 2-3 cm seems like way too much though. 2-3 millimetres maybe. Oct 23, 2014

Phillip D: you'll probably want to trade them back in for the "long" finger version. the long size is the only gloves i've ever gotten to fit my fingers comfortable. Oct 23, 2014

rick g: These are solidly constructed gloves and are comfortable. My brother has had them for quite a while and suggested them to me when I needed new ones.
As far as operating a phone; yes, I have no problem using my Nokia Lumia 920 phone, nor the previous version Nokia Lumia 820. Both run Microsoft 8 operating systems.
It's a little difficult when I am downshifting into a turn, though! Seriously, good gloves. Both thumbs up!

A shopper asked: I had an old pair of the original Steves from about 10 years ago. They were made in Germany and lasted forever. Well, until I got them wet and left them in a saddlebag in the heat recently. I bought a pair of the Air Heros last year that were not made in Germany. Some stitching is already coming out in the thumb area. So, I'm not overly impressed with those. Perhaps QA isn't quite the same. Jun 23, 2012

A shopper asked: I have an older pair of Held Steves in a 7.5 that I"m quite happy with, except that I've now put on enough miles that I need to replace them. Is the sizing consistent? Aug 6, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: We have found that the Sizing of the Held Steve Classic Gloves to be very similar to that of the original Held Steve gloves.

As the Steve Classics were designed from the original Steve patterns and dies, their respective sizings are quite consistent with each other.

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".
