Fit Like a Glove

Here"s how to measure yourself for the right size riding glove.

Sizes 5-9. XS-XL. These don”t tell you very much about what size to buy when you”re standing in front of a wall of riding gloves. Here”s how to measure yourself for the right size riding gloves.

Wrap a flexible tape measure around the knuckle line of your four fingers (don”t include your thumb). round up to the nearest half-inch, and that”s your numeric glove size. For gloves that use universal sizing, i.e., S-L, the unisex sizing should correspond as follows: 6.5-7 inches=small, 7.5-8=medium, 8.5-9=large. Your gloves should feel snug but not restrictive.
