If a ski and snowboard glove is too small, it will be uncomfortable.
But if your ski or snowboard glove is too big, your hand will have a hard time warming up the inside.
So selecting the correct ski and snowboard glove size is important.
How to measure for a glove:
For best results, take measurements of your width and length.
Most gloves sizes are determined by width but some people have long fingers.
Select your glove size to whichever is longer. When between sizes, go up a size.
How to measure for a mitten:
Take measurements of your width and length.
Because mittens have more room, width is the most important measurement.
When between sizes, go up a size.
Width Measurement: Wrap a tailor's measuring tape around your dominant hand just below knuckles, excluding your thumb, and make a fist. This measurement is your "hand width" glove size.
Length Measurement: Measure from the bottom edge of palm to the tip of your middle finger to determine your "finger length" size.
There are a few other things to consider when sizing.
Use our glove and mitten sizing chart only as a reference.
A slightly larger glove will be more comfortable but takes more body heat to keep warm.
A snug fit takes less body heat to warm up.
If you wear liners, go larger as liners make your hands larger.
