Choosing the right winter glove
So in the first instance you look at the length and circumference of your hand to find the right winter glove. If your length is between these sizes, the choice is easy. It gets a little more complicated if your size is in between different sizes. For a winter glove size, we always advise you to choose a slightly larger option. After all, you mainly wear this glove for warm comfort.
Should winter gloves be tight or loose?
It is better for winter gloves to be a little looser than too tight. Because, there is more air in the winter glove that also heats up. This serves as additional insulation. For this it is important that the part at the arm is properly closed. Usually there is an extra cord or band to pull the glove tight. Isn’t this the case? Then choose a size that fits well.
Do not immediately go for an XXL size, because you do not want the winter glove to be too loose. This can make slip and make it more difficult to do things with your hands.
