Held Steve Classic Gloves 4.7 5 40 40
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
Great features, durable, odd finger lengths. I bought the Held Steve gloves after doing tons of research here and elsewhere. I wanted kangaroo on the palms, some sort of slider on the heel / side area, gauntlets, and durable construction. This glove delivers. It also doesn't have stuff all over the knuckles. I'm not a racer and the Held has subdued styling. The Superfabric slider area is a great idea, supposedly being super-duper in the abrasion resistance department. I haven't crash-tested them, but I think they'd hold up well. I attached some photos showing the wear at about 2000 miles. The negatives: I apparently have relatively short index fingers and a largish palm. This makes glove sizing slightly difficult. I ordered the standard length fingers, and they fit the palm and every finger well except the thumb and index finger, which were way too long. I have no idea who their hand model is, but I seriously doubt those fingers would be the right length for the average male hand proportions. Anyway, since the other fingers fit fine, I didn't try the short-fingered version. Instead, I took them to a local leather worker and had him shorten the thumb and index. The pics show them shortened. Other than the finger fit, love the gloves. I worry about how long the velcro will stay sticky, but the rest of the gloves seem very durable. June 16, 2014
Good fit I got a pair of size 10 regular for Fathers Day and immediately, went for a ride. The initial fit, they felt too long in the fingers and just right thru the hand. After riding for a half day, I soaked them in a water/ rubbing alcohol mix to shrink them up a bit. Once they dried, the fingers fit perfect but the thumb was still 3/4 inch too long. Maybe it is my hand but the thumb section seemed really long, I was able to simply restitch the thumb tip and cut off the excess for a perfect fit! June 16, 2014
2nd pair - Great gloves I wore the first pair for 7 years! I'm a commuter, 55,000 miles on an FJR 1300 Yamaha. These are my most of the time gloves. I have heated gloves for winter and summer gloves for "over 95 degree" days. Great in the rain. Tough. Well made high quality. Twice the costs but last 3 times as long... June 16, 2014
I love the Steve Glove I have ridden with Steve Gloves for 20 years. I like them for most all year round. I preferred the natural yellow color of the previous design but... I am not an expert on any of the areas of measure so any thing I say is my opinion. I tried the Long this time and they are LONG indeed. Longer than I needed but very welcome. I tried some other brand for a year and the finger tip stitch jammed up right under my fingernail, very unpleasant. Very Happy to be back in my Held Steve gloves. May 12, 2014
My second pair, love 'em. A+ riding gloves. My last pair of Held Steve Classic gloves lasted 12 years. I bought them a little small and they took a while to break in but then they... "fit like a glove!" Seriously, I can pick up a dime from a counter wearing them; did it again just now. Revzilla sent me two sizes to try. I am in between a 7.5 and an 8. Again I chose the tighter pair despite the longer break-in. I have an interesting story about these Held Steve Classic gloves: Five years ago, in the early spring myself and several members of my posse took a weekend ride to a local pancake house in New Hampshire for brunch. The road out was twisty and we went down by some lakes near the restaurant. On the way back after some waffles we encountered a car in the opposite lane stopped in the middle of the road in a corner in a low marshy area. We slowed down and saw the driver was looking out his window at what appeared to be a dark green trash bag on the centerline of the road. When we got closer we realized the trash bag was actually a HUGE snapping turtle! We stopped. This was the biggest snapping turtle I have ever seen. I got off of my bike to see if the animal was injured. The turtle was unhurt, but was sitting in the middle of the road paralleling the centerline and she was testy. If you came near, the critter would stretch her neck way out, open her mouth wide and hiss loudly like a snake! Her neck and head had to be 14 inches long. Her jaws were maybe 5 or 6 inches wide from tip of nose to lower jar when opened up; very menacing. This turtle looked as if she could swallow a golf ball. The shell on this turtle was about 20 inches front to back and 14 inches wide. She made no attempt to move off in any direction, even if we tried to nudge her. Turtles breed in the spring and the females leave the pond where they live to dig a nest in high, dry ground and lay her eggs. That is what was happening here. Now you know the answer to the question; “Why does the turtle cross the road.” Anyway, we’re standing there wondering what to do. This turtle is going to get hit if we leave it in the center of a bend in a well-traveled road. I’m walking around the turtle and sizing her up. It appears that the head/neck of the beast can’t reach too far backwards, and she can’t snap me if I grab its shell half way front to back standing behind her. I’m wearing all the riding gear; full leathers, boots, gloves, helmet, but I checked out her “reach” very carefully; if this turtle bites your finger it’s gone! Finally I approach the turtle from behind, grab the shell on either side in the middle, and pick the girl up. She doesn’t like this but can’t reach me to get a bite. I lifted the turtle; she weighed about 25lb., and I quickly moved her about 15ft to the pond side of the road. Sure enough the snapping turtle cannot reach over to bite me, but turtles have these long sharp claws on each of their four feet just like a bear. As I’m carrying the turtle, she reaches up with her left rear leg and swipes her claws into my left hand in a motion like a dog scratching itself. The turtle buries the sharp tip of one of the 2 inch claws into the back tip of my left ring finger. The claw immediately pierced the leather of the glove like it wasn’t even there. I watched this happen as I was holding the turtle out in front of me. I could feel the pressure of the claws on my finger and hand, but I didn’t drop the turtle. And I didn’t yell out, but my brain immediately screamed; “AAAAHHH!” I quickly carried the turtle off to the side of the road where the water was very near the road shoulder, I bent over and dropped the turtle the last 1 ½ ft. into the grass (I had intended to set the turtle down as gently as I picked it up). Immediately after moving away I looked at my hand expecting blood, although I felt no pain. It turns out that the Kevlar layer under the leather and padding on the back of my Held gloves stopped the claw, and I’ll tell you, those turtle claws are sharp! The whole incident took about three or four minutes. I got back on my motorcycle which was running the whole time and rode away. As we’re heading down the road I thought; “now there’s something that doesn’t happen every day!” So there you have it, a true story. Held motorcycle gloves; turtle tested tough! Jim April 8, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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

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

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".
