Glove Size Finding Guide

Shopping online is convenient, but sometimes it could go wrong with the sizes.

How to Measure Your Hand Size?

There are three important factors that help decide your glove size, hand circumference, hand length, and middle finger length.

Circumference

Circumference

This is the widely used standard metric.

The circumference is measured around the meat of the hand, from where the pinkie meets the palm to where the pointer finger meets the palm. Lay your dominant hand flat, fingers together, palm facing upwards. Wrap the measuring tape around your palm, just below the knuckles, not including the thumb. (as shown in the picture below)

Hand Length

Hand Length

If your hands are especially large or long, you may need to use the hand length instead of the hand circumference to find the right gloves.

Hold your hand up. Point your fingertips upwards. Measure from the top your middle finger to the base of your palm (as shown in the picture above)

Middle Finger Length

Middle Finger Length

Sometimes, people have really long fingers while the palm is relatively short. In this case, you might need to measure your middle finger length to determine the glove size. Hold your hand up and point your fingertips upwards. Measure from the top your middle finger to the base of your middle finger where it meets the palm (as shown in the picture below)

With all the hand size information you have, please do not forget to check out the sellers’ sizing chart, when you are in between sizes, it is always recommended to go up a size, unless you really prefer a tight fit.

  • First – tee hee – bottom red line on the Hand Length graphic on this page, https://vgoglove.com/blogs/news/glove-size-finding-guide?pos=1&_sid=cbb0b5530&ss=r, is in the wrong place, probably got shifted. It is not at the bottom of the palm, it is at the bottom of the index finger. Thought you’d like to know.

    AND – I CANNOT FIND A SIZE CHART, OR SIZING ON THE GLOVES’ PAGES……..HELP.

    My son bought some of the NT2110 gloves when the pandemic started. Love them to wear into stores. He got XL and those are too large for the women in my family. BUT – since I do not know the sizing, we are lost as to which size(s) to get. Can’t find that info on amazon either. I want to buy a bunch more for carrying in the cars for when someone forgets theirs at home. We love how well they wash.
