Glove Sizing

Recommended Posts

Do you ever go out on a call and just grab whatever gloves are handy only to find out they don’t fit?  If the gloves are too small they are very uncomfortable, reduce dexterity and cause hand fatigue.   If they are too big, they can easily be pulled off or snagged on edges.  Even worse, either condition can cause you to just take the gloves off exposing your hands to hazards.

Here is how to measure your hand so you have a glove that fits flawlessly.

Measure your dominant hand using a flexible tape measure around the circumference of the palm near your knuckles, not including the thumb.  Your dominant hand will be the right if you are right-handed or left if you are left-handed.  The measurement in inches will correspond to your hand size.

If the gloves you are purchasing come in numbered sizes your hand measurement will be the glove size.  So a 9” hand circumference would be a size 9 glove.  If your hand measures between 9” and 10”, get the higher size i.e. size 10”.  If the gloves you purchase are in lettered sizes such as small, medium, large, etc. see the sizing chart below.  This chart reflects the sizing of AWDirect’s Kinco brand gloves.  While similar, other brands may have slightly different charts.

Size        Men’s                   Women’s                           

S            7”-8”                     6”-7”

M            8”-9”                     7”-8”

L             9”-10”                   8”-9”

XL          10”-10-1/2”

XXL       10-1/2”-11”
