On the suggested size chart from leisure pro, I am a medium. I ordered a medium glove and they seem to be a little small in the arches of my fingers...especially between my thumb and index finger. The glove around my palm fits perfectly. Not sure if I should go with a large glove or keep these. I don't want the seems to break and Im afraid with a large size glove it won't fit around my palm. Any suggestions?
I had a similar situation. I am about to order the XL, and maybe pass my L on to my dive buddy - in fact, they are already in his dive bag. I haven't ordered them yet, so it's probably not much help, other than to say most people will have to order one size larger than the size chart indicates
Thanks everyone for the quick responses! I think I will order the Large pair and return which ever doesn't fit. I can't wait to get these gloves in the water!
Mine seemed the same way but loosened up some in the water. I LOVE these gloves for deep cold diving.
These are nice gloves but they do run small. I'm a large (on the chart) and the large gloves is very snug. I actually have trouble getting them on and off they are so tight. I'd say getting one size larger is the way to go with these gloves.
I own the gloves in question. I bought according to the recommendations but in the end I sized up. It was a world of difference in fit so I would encourage you to size up. Hands do vary a lot in size and proportion so ymmv. Your comment regarding bursting/tearing seems- I felt the same way but I still used them and they were a poor enough fit that I had to have help. If those seems are going to burst, they should have but they didn't!
I order A LOT(MOST) of my ENORMOUS collection of dive equipment.
I usually order the size I think I am and the next size I think I might be.
Shipping costs-especially for something as small as gloves-are insignificant. It's easier ju I dont know.st to buy the two pair, and with LeisurePros liberal return policy, try them on and then return the pair that doesn't fit.
I have this same problem with gloves....I don't know why it happens. I'd KEEP this pair, order the next size up and compare the two, then return the ones that don't fit. If it gets into the return policy period then call LeisurePro and explain.....They are GREAT about returned stuff as long as it has tags on, hasn't been wet etc.
I have at least eight pair of gloves and these are the BEST!
