How To Measure Hand For Gloves:

  1.   Measure around the hand at the fullest part(exclude thumb)
  2.   Measure the hand length from the tip of the middle to the base of the hand.
  3.   Choose the larger of these number for the right size glove.
  4.  When measuring for glove size, you should always use your dominant hand — your right hand if you’re right-handed and left if you are right-handed.
  5.   We recommend choosing a half-inch larger size (e.g. if your hand measures 7.5″, purchase a glove size 8″).
