Hestra make gloves, and no other clothing so their sizing runs very true using the traditional method of measuring the hand. Take a look at the size chart below to determine your size.

Tips from our years of experience selling these gloves:

- If between sizes on gloves and mittens round UP a size
- If between sizes on liners you can size DOWN for a closer yet still comfortable fit
- For FULL leather gloves, you will find these a much closer fit, leather will break in to personalise the fit, but we recommend still rounding up if between sizes or wanting a less snug fit to allow for glove liners, for example
- Hestra make UNISEX and WOMENS models. If you have long slender fingers, the women's range is optimised for this

Measuring your hand

Hestra measure by running a tape measure (or piece of string) round the circumference of your hand at the palm EXCLUDING your thumb - put your hand in front of you palm facing you, and measure round the hand with your thumb out of the way at a right angle. This measurement, the girth of your hand, in inches, is your Hestra glove size. For example 8" is a size 8 glove. You can further refine your size by measuring your longest finger from the base of the palm to the tip of the longest finger.
