Default Glove sizing issue

I'm a little torn between the Large and X-Large of a particular set of gloves (dakines).

Do dakines run a little small or large? I'm having a tough time since I kind of fall right in the middle of both in terms of hand measurement (more towards the large for palm size, but finger length would constitute an XL).

Should I bump to an XL or trip to a Large?

The pair I am currently using shows a Junior Large on the tag. It is tight, but not to the point where I wouldn't use it. The gloves are quite old, so maybe the sizing scheme doesn't apply to the newer glove models out there now.

Just buy whichever size fits best when you try them on. It sounds like it will be the XL.

Gloves are one of those things i'll only buy in person unless ive tried the exact model on and I know what size to order. Sizing can vary quite a bit even within the same brand.

I agree with RJRJRJ. Snowboard and ski gloves can really fit strangly and different from model to model, not just brand to brand. Most the gloves I came across have short fingers. I really don't understand why. I finally found a warm waterproof glove that allowed relatively great finger movement and good snow intrusion protection: Gordini Fuse. I was torn between sizes only because I didn't know whether I would use a liner with them or not. I decided against a liner and chose the smaller size. I tried a lot of gloves before I was able to select one. I suggest you get your hands in them before you choose the size or even that glove for that matter.
