Glove Sizing Instructions

To determine your glove size; extend fingers and, using a seamstress' tape, measure the distance around the hand just below the knuckles (the widest part).
Take this measurement and, referring to the chart below, find the size of glove that comes closest to the measurement observed.

If the measurement falls between sizes use the following guideline: on insulated, winter/touring gloves order the larger size; on uninsulated spring/summer gloves order the smaller size.

Observed .............Correct
