Seems some mice had made home in my gloves and not having the faintest idea of size I needed I looked online.
i measured my hands as they showed on various websites.
Seems I need a small size.

So I see some gloves that are a few quid, they were medium but I took a risk. Turns medium is to small to get on.
I saw some large ones at a similarly wallet busting price, well all the measurement thingies say I need a small so a
large can't be to small;. yep they can be, I can get them on but feel like I may not have enough blood flow to my
fingers, the fingers I can't bend in the gloves.

So I just hit buy it now on some extra large.

If bought mail order you can send them back

Personally I would try them on in a shop as they seem to vary within the size ranges

Go to a shop!
That's giving in, I will either try the piss in them and
wear them until they fit or open a glove shop, "suits you sir".

Eureka.
XL seems to a perfect fit.

I was looking at the gloves wondering what size was[the tags are no longer visible] untill I found this thread.
Turns out XL are not big enough. They fit a bit to much like "fit's like a glove" and once I have had them
on a while and done some sweating in them I can't get the things off easily and when I do get them off no way
can I get them back on, so I have a cold hand ride home.

I will have to try some XXL.
