How to Find the Correct Glove Sizing

Guide to Finding the Correct Glove Sizing

By The Glove Company

Finding the correct glove size can be tricky, so we have created a comprehensive glove sizing guide that will help you determine what size will best fit your hand. 

How do I find my glove size?

This guide will show you how to easily measure hands for each different type of glove. Having the correctly sized glove can have extraordinary benefits, enabling the glove to function as it was designed.

Glove technology that needs correctly fitted gloves:

  • Touch Screen Technology – This has advanced fabrics on the thumb and index finger tips. You’re skin must be pressing against the fabric to conduct correctly.

  • Anti Glove-Hand Movement – Correctly sized gloves move precisely in sync with your wrists, hands and fingers. And do not twist, bunch up, ride up or slip.

  • Ergonomic Comfort – During forceful work a too tight of a glove creates a painful experience as the gloves wedges and pushes inbetween the fingers.
    Too loose of a glove creates a bunching and rubbing irritation on the skin where the fingers, hand and wrist bend.

  • Compressible Nitrile Coatings – The best grip comes with fine textures and nitrile rubbers that compress, giving you the advantage of extra strength and grip. The correctly sized glove will avoid bunching and movement of glove and you will be able to compress the gloves palm as a second skin.

  • Fingertip Dexterity – Making sure your fingers reach and fill the end of the gloves comfortably means that you can grab with your finger tips without any hassle.

Disposable Glove Size Table Guide

Due to the strength of nitrile and its elongation rating, disposable gloves usually have a good range of fit between sizes.
Generally a technical user can opt for one size smaller than what’s listed in the guide for extra sensitive and accurate fingertips.

Large 9 79 - 91
Extra Large 10 91 - 99
