Hestra's traditional sizing system for gloves was developed several hundred years ago in France. Thousands of hands were measured and a relationship became apparent: If you measure the circumference of the palm, the hand’s other measurements are often in proportion to it. Measure the circumference of your hand with a tape measure. If you don't have a tape measure you can use a string which you then measure with a ruler. Compare the size measurement in the size guide below.

 

Size recommendations

It is important to find the correct size from the start as sport gloves generally do not stretch over time. There should be a small gap between hand and glove to bind air which makes the glove warmer. A sports glove that is too tight will most likely be perceived as colder. If you are in between two unisex sizes we recommend that you normally choose the larger one. Junior size 7 and unisex size 7 is not the same size as they follow different size ranges.
