Klim gloves fit more like American branded gloves than European branded gloves (which run a bit smaller). If you have experience with brands like FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket etc, I think you’ll find the fit comparable. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Just an observation… I think the fingers of these gloves fit a bit more slender than the average glove, so this with average or slender hands will probably like them more than those with thick hands.
Our Two Cents
Wow, these Dakar Pro gloves really feel nice. If you like a snug fit glove, this one will do the trick!
The leather used in these gloves is great! If you like the feel of a snug fit, thin patrol type glove, you’ll like how these feel. Leather covers the entire palm side and the back side is a combination of textile materials and padded protectors. Those protectors are covered in perforated black leather.
The overall package is definitely a step above ordinary off road gloves, and these could also be used as light duty street gloves as well. Klim touts them as being tough and highly durable. I personally think they’d be better characterized as being built for superior feel for the controls, but not for long term durability. :: Paul, 03-28-18
