Held SR-X Sports Glove - Black / White
Customer Product Reviews
Behold Held SR-X
Very nice gloves, well made and comfortable from first use. No brainer to look after your hands, your Donald without them. I usually wear a size large but went up to an XL in these. If you use your hands for a living, work with hand tools, etc the palm area at the base of your thumb gets larger hence the size up as Held seem to fit tight. Venting and feel top notch on these gloves.
Overall a quality well made glove offering excellent protection in a lightweight summer glove with loads of feel for the control of the motorcycle.. Finger sizing a little strange , with thumb and little finger on the large side, whlist the other fingers shorter meaning that the end of the finger catches the internal seam, with wear i have got used to this and is a non issue as far as comfort is concerned. I went for the xl , my hand size is 9.3/4 inches normally wear a xxl in alpine stars as a comparison.
Very well made gloves. Good feel through leather. Knuckle protection looks big, but doesn't look out of place when your hands are on the handlebars. Small finger is rather long ! Perforations on sides of fingers are large so definitely not any good once the weather has turned cooler.
Great summer gloves
Having bought the Held Air & Dry gloves from Sportsbikeshop last year I decided to go for a shorter summer pair as well. Ordered 2 sizes and returned one. Excellent returns and refund service as usual. Held gloves are pricey but well worth the extra outlay.
Cool short Summer glove
Good points; Great quality gloves. I will explore other Held products. Fast delivery. Review of gloves; The glove has loads of holes to help keep the hands cool, and a shorter cuff, so you don't feel like your wearing medieval gauntlets It might just be me? I used the hand measurement guide to get the glove size right. I was supposed to be a large (L). This did not work for me, I found it hard to get the glove on even with all the Velcro bits undone. It was quite tight over the base of the thumbs, the chicken drumstick like part. It might have worn in with use, but it needs to be right. Customer Service. I contacted Sportsbikeshop, they said I would need a larger size, but, the next "half size" was on a 22 week back order, they did have XL on stock, so I accepted the XL. Delivery was fast. This was great around the drumsticks, but, a touch big on the rest of the hands. I don't want to wait to try the half size, and really liked the feel of the glove when on, very soft and flexible on the palms and very smart looking with titanium knuckle protection. IMPORTANT NOTE. Check the fit is right for everything before removing any tags, and don't use them at all and do not take them outside not even to your garage! So although a 365 day returns policy is in place, everything has to be in brand new quality and not worn or used out doors, with all the original packaging. So I don't get it? Buy something and you can look at it for up to a year and try it on once. As long as there is no signs of wear and the quality is as above. Sportsbikeshop wanted to see the gloves size L that were too tight, but, as I wore them and checked the feel with the controls, he wanted to see them as he can't sell them as they would be second hand, if there was any marks on them because they had been worn and before sending out the XL. My wife had telephoned them to say I was returning them, but it might take a while as I was in hospital. Still not capable of riding the bike due to major surgery (Organ Transplant). I hope to start using it soon, ironically these glove would not be used 'til next year, I'll be putting on my winter ones. Somewhat wary of using these guys again because of the way my use and return was handled.
