Held Race-Tex Gore-Tex Textile Glove - Black
November 6, 2019

Brilliant gloves

These gloves are brilliant! I finally pulled the trigger after a few weeks thinking about it. Favourite glove purchase I've made. They have been completely waterproof for me and very comfortable with great feel. Build quality is so good that it's made me consider trying Held clothing even though I find the styling a bit dull. The cuff isn't too bulky, you should be able to fit under jackets and over jackets pretty easily. This is not a winter glove per say - I use heated grips and have Barkbuster blizzard so it's been completely fine in around 5c temperatures. You should not use these in winter without grips and wind guard for the hands. Regarding fit - I'm a large in RST, Richa, Knox and Weise and find them all true to size; for these gloves I am an XL.

Supposed to be waterproof, well I can tell you they're not, I know @ £114 they are not the most expensive gloves, but I shall not be buying another pair.. I will look for a "Waterproof" pair now

Great gloves

I cannot fault these gloves at all. I haven't tested them in heavy rain yet but they are very comfortable and look great. The build quality is also there.

A real quality glove, that excuse the pun "fit like a glove". I live in Spain so these will be perfect for the weathers we get...all or nothing!

Good quality glove

Good quality materials and manufacturing. Gloves fit well, I bought a size large as usual and they fitted well if just a little snug but will break in after a while. There very good tactile wise though its not rained so far can't say about how waterproof they are. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend.

Fantastic fit and brilliant build quality

Couldn't be better. Super comfortable, fantastic build quality and loads of protection. Bought after a long hunt for waterproof non winter gloves. Found these to be great over the wet summer days, not too hot but totally waterproof as you'd expect. Fit was perfect for me and closure great with big pull tab to seat the gloves well and lovely big velcro cuff. Couldn't recommend them more.

Well made and comfortable

Very comfortable and solidly made. Haven't tested them in the rain yet, but they did handle a mild drizzle. The wiper is a nice touch.

Held Gortex Glove

Well made, although my first pair were not stitched on the index finger, but SBS replaced them with no fuss. The new pair seem excellent although not tried them in the wet yet.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • whether these gloves are suitable for hot and rainy days

    April 10, 2019

    We can confirm these gloves would be suitable as they are vented and Gore-Tex lined.

  • Hi, I am planning to order this Held-glove. But I want size 10, (after tested a Held glove at Home). What is that in XL, L or M? Also I want long fingers if possible. Please help. Best reg. Claes

    January 3, 2018

    A size 10 equates to an XL. Unfortunately a long finger option is not available in this glove.
