Glove Sizes – Measuring Guide

Glove Sizes – Measuring Guide

To ensure comfortable, accurate hand protection, glove sizes are based on careful hand measurements. Use the following guide to find your correct glove size.

NOTE: Use the longest “finger length” or “hand width” measurement to find your size. If your longest measurement falls between sizes, we recommend that you order the larger size.


Measuring your hand:



Hand length being measured


Measure from the bottom edge of your palm to the tip of your middle finger to determine your ‘finger length’ size.

EU sizes US sizes
160 mm EU – 6 6 5/16 inches XS
171 mm EU – 7 6 3/4 inches S
182 mm EU – 8 7 3/16 inches M
192 mm EU – 9 7 9/16 inches L
204 mm EU – 10 8 1/16 inches XL
215 plus mm EU – 11 8 7/16 plus inches XXL




Hand width being measured


Wrap a measuring tape around your dominant hand just below knuckles, excluding your thumb, and make a fist. This measurement is your ‘hand width’ glove size.
