Some Held gloves are sold in Held gloves sizes and some are sold in ordinary men’s “alpha” sizes (Small, Med, Large, etc). This model is sold in Held glove sizes.
For this particular style, I found the glove to be sized correctly. The sizing compares to other major brands of gloves. My advice is to choose a Held glove size using the table below based upon your previous experience with other alpha sized glove you may have owned.
You can also choose a size measuring your hand. Take this link for a full rundown on how to measure your hand and about Held glove sizing in general.
|Held Glove Size||Equivalent Alpha Size||Actual Hand Measurement|
|7||Small||6.5” to 7”|
|8||Medium||7.5” to 8”|
|8.5||Medium||8” to 8.5”|
|9||Large||8.5” to 9”|
|9.5||Large||9” to 9.5”|
|10||XL||9.5” to 10”|
|11||XXL||10” to 11”|
|12||XXXL||11” to 12”|
Our Two Cents
The Held Airea glove is a very nice, simple leather glove with a fully perforated back which will be comfortable in the summer.
On the palm-side of this glove, the fingers have external seams which is a very comfortable design for gloves. Those raw edges of the leather face outside instead of inside to keep them away from your skin which makes for a short break-in.
The back of the hand is fully perforated and the palm side is solid. The inside is unlined and the wrist closes with a Velcro strap.
Overall, a nice design for any type of riding. And of course, you get great Held glove quality. :: Paul, 01-04-19
