How to measure your hand
Measuring for glove size is a two-step process. First, measure the circumference of your hand at its widest point in inches or centimeters. Second, determine your hand length by measuring from the tip of your middle finger to your wrist.
Once you have both measurements, refer to the size chart below to find the right gloves for you. If you are between sizes, it is usually best to err on the side of a larger size.
Hand Circumference (in inches) Hand Length (in inches) Glove Size
7 7 Small
8 8 Medium
9 9 Large
10 10 X-Large
Find your glove size
To find your glove size, measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles with a flexible tape measure, then round to the nearest whole number. To ensure a comfortable fit, add 0.5″ to 1″ to your measurement, depending on how snug you like your gloves to feel.
If you are between sizes or have unusually large or small hands for your height, you may want to try on gloves of different sizes before making a purchase.
Sizes may vary depending on the manufacturer and style of glove, so it’s always best to try on gloves before buying them.
How to convert your glove size
There is no definitive answer to this question as glove sizes can vary significantly from one manufacturer to the next. However, there are a few general tips that may be useful when trying to determine your glove size.
First, it is important to measure your hand in order to get an accurate glove size. To do this, wrap a tape measure around your hand at the widest point and make a note of the measurement in inches or centimeters. Next, consult a size chart or contact the glove manufacturer directly to find out what size glove corresponds to your hand measurement.
Keep in mind that glove sizes may also be different based on the type of glove you are trying to purchase. For example, a work glove may have a different sizing than a winter glove. In addition, some manufacturers run small or large so it is always a good idea to try on gloves before making a purchase.
How to measure your hand for a glove size
To determine your glove size, simply measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles with a tape measurer and round to the nearest whole number. If you are between sizes, it is usually best to order the larger size for a comfortable fit.
For women’s gloves, you will also need to take into account the width of your hand. To do this, measure across your hand at the widest part (typically below your knuckles) and round to the nearest whole number. If this measurement falls on the half-size, always round down to the next lowest whole number. For example, if your hand measures 6.5 inches across, you would order a women’s small glove.
Once you have both measurements, refer to the size chart below to determine your glove size:
Men’s Hand Measurements (inches)
Extra Small: 6 or less
Small: 6.5 – 7
Medium: 7.5 – 8
Large: 8.5 – 9
Extra Large: 9 or greater
Women’s Hand Measurements (inches)
Extra Small: 5 or less
Small: 5.5 – 6
Medium: 6.5 – 7
Large: 7 or greater
How to find your glove size
There are a few different ways that you can determine your glove size. The most common is to measure the circumference of your hand just below your knuckles, excluding your thumb. Another way is to measure the length of your hand from the base of your palm to the tip of your middle finger.
Once you have these measurements, you can consult a glove size chart to find your approximate size. Keep in mind that glove sizes vary depending on the brand, so it’s always best to try gloves on before you buy them.
If you’re between sizes, or if you’re buying gloves for a child, it’s usually best to go with the larger size. You can always make gloves fit more snugly with a little bit of adjustments, but it’s much more difficult to make them larger if they’re too small.
How to convert your glove size
There are a few different ways you can measure your glove size, but the most common is to use a tape measure. You can also use a ruler or even just your hand if you don’t have a tape measure handy.
To measure your glove size with a tape measure, start by wrapping the tape around your hand at the widest part, usually right below your knuckles. Make sure the tape is snug, but not too tight. Once you have the measurement, round up to the nearest inch and that is your glove size.
If you are using a ruler, simply place the end of the ruler at the base of your palm and extend it out to your fingers. Again, make sure it is snug but not too tight. Once you have the measurement, round up to the nearest inch and that is your glove size.
You can also use your hand to estimate glove size. Simply wrap your hand around an object like a book or mug and make a fist. If your hands are less than 4 inches across, you will need a small or extra small glove. If they are between 4 and 5 inches across, you will need a medium glove. If they are between 5 and 6 inches across, you will need a large glove. And if they are more than 6 inches across, you will need an extra large glove.
