Held Steve Classic Gloves 4.7 5 33 33
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
Held is the best Happy to find them. Wore out my lsat pair after 12 years of heavy use. April 7, 2014
Another awesome Held glove These replaced 10 year old Held mid weight gloves. Same temp range with 1/2 the weight and better protection! win win win March 31, 2014
A better pair of Held Steve My current pair of Steve had the rivets which had a tendency to wear the finish on the left bar weight. They are my favorite glove until it gets hot, then I go to the Held Agadir (excellent). These new Steves use shock-absorbing special foam instead of the rivets, which I like better. The reflector is a nice bonus. Same fit as my original Steves. January 13, 2014
Beautiful gloves These gloves are both beautiful and protect well. The ostrich is a wonderful material and keeps your hands warm and protected. The only down side is that they run a little small, so make sure to get a little bigger size. They do stretch with time, but if you don't want to wait, then get the bigger size. December 30, 2013
Another good glove from Held I've really liked my other Held gloves and wanted to get something for touring. The Steve Classic gloves fit what I wanted and they haven't disappointed. The gloves fit true to size and have extra padding on the base of the palms for protection. These are not racing gloves but the protection they offer is good for what I expect out of touring gloves. As always, Held's leather is the best out there (as compared against the various brands that I've tried). I would recommend them to anyone looking for touring or commuting gloves. December 25, 2013
Great glove for all around riding. I have owned several varieties of Held gloves and need not be sold on their quality. The Steve Classic is no exception. I especially liked the fact that I could order a shorter finger length as I do not like having excess material at my fingertips. I also like the face shield wipe on the finger, however I would prefer a stiffer wipe which would allow for a cleaner sweep of rain. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase and look forward to my next set of Held gloves. December 24, 2013
High quality gloves. Rich in features. No issues with this product. Have been wearing them in temperatures of 35-80 with no discomfort. Needed liners from mid 40s and below in highway speed. I'm leaving one star out since I have owned these gloves for a short period and their durability is unknown at this point. I will add it back a year from now, if they last.

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

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

Steps to Measure For Held Gloves

  • Use a flexible measuring tape to measure your hand in inches.

  • 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".
