Glove fitting

How do you guys like your gloves to fit? I recently ordered some burton clutch gloves. I really like how they fit. With a liner, they're a little snug--and with wrist guards--they're even snugger. I've still got circulation, but I was wondering in general how you guys like your gloves to fit?

I just bought last seasons Burton AK Clutch in blue. Pretty much the same glove without the leather detail on the top. I like a slightly loser fit, rather than tight that it would prohibit good circulation. I think if I put a liner in, it would be slightly tight. I like a fit where the finger is pretty much the same length as your actual fingers.

I buy based on length of fingers. I apparently have short meaty hands so most gloves fit quite snug at first. They usually pack out after a few days use and I end up with a perfect fit.

I'll revive this instead of posting a new thread -.- I'm currently looking for a new glove as well and am highly interested in the Hestra's because of all the great reviews I keep reading on them.

I looked at the size chart, and actually found a pair (not the specific one I'd purchase) and got to try them on in a 10, and they were amazing. My only concern though is in sub-zero temperatures, what do you do about a lining, or is the lining even worth it?

Like I said a size 10 fit me perfectly, but I'm not sure if I would go to an 11 or 12 if I were to put a liner in it. Does anyone have any insight on this? Also, do yall wear the same gloves the whole season, or have cold gloves and spring gloves?

Thanks !!

Gloves pack out, especially leather ones. Get what fits you, after a few days youl be able to fit some small liners if needed.

When you have high quality leather gloves such as Hestra's, are liners needed at all? Or are they just personal preference at that point? Or liners only below a certain temp?

I was just in Hokkaido Japan and bought a pair of leather Hestra 3-finger gloves (non goretex) which are a Japan-only model and similar to the Seth Morrison Pro 3-Finger. They are amazing. Ambient temps were around negative teens celcius before windchill (it was bloody windy and snowing) and my hands were very warm. They also stayed dry despite digging myself out of pow several times. Highly recommended.

I was choosing between a size 7 & 8 myself... the 7 were a bit snug and the 8 were a bit loose. I went with the 7 and they are starting to break in nicely.

I wear thin almost silk-like liners cuz they make putting on gloves easier when my hands are moist or wet, but I would say that liners are not needed for warmth.

Any specific brand of liner, or you just have everyday-use liners that you wear casually as well?

...

SILK liners OP.. WTB.

I'm partial to leather gloves and bought two pair over the past couple weeks:

- For warmer days (25F +) I found a pair of Burton RPM gloves on ebay for $60.
- For colder days I bought a pair of Black Diamond Legend gloves from Moosejaw for $120

The BD Legends are really nice and fit a bit snug. Once they pack out a bit they should be perfect:
