Almost every kind of manual work requires adequate hand protection, so finding properly fitting protective gloves should be on top of your shopping list. The question is, how do you choose the gloves that will fit just right? This guide is here to help you!

Why Is Glove Size Important?

If you're involved in jobs and tasks that include handling potentially toxic substances, hazardous chemicals, and sharp tools, you need the right size of gloves to keep you safe from hand injuries. Besides just protection, working with well-fitting gloves also helps you carry out your tasks with optimal comfort, so you can move with ease while you work.

How to Measure Hand Size for Gloves

To make sure you buy the right glove size for your needs, first you need to measure your hand. To do this, you need a flexible measuring tape.

Step 1: Wrap the measuring tape all the way around the widest part of your hand, just below the knuckles, without including your thumb. Note the measurement both in inches (in) and centimeters (cm). Label it as the horizontal measurement.

Step 2: Take another measurement from the tip of your middle finger (the highest point) to the base of your hand. Note the measurement in both inches (in) and centimeters (cm). Label it as the vertical measurement.

If you don't have a measuring tape, you can use a piece of string to map out the lengths and widths, on your hand, then simply place the string on a ruler to get the measurement.

Once you've taken the two measurements accordingly, always refer to the sizing charts provided by the supplier or manufacturer to find the perfect glove size for you.

Some manufacturers may only offer one size (e.g., 5 ½ in) instead of a range (e.g., 7½ in to 8½ in). In this case, choose the larger number from your vertical or horizontal measurements and round it up. For instance, if your horizontal measurement is 6.5 in and your vertical measurement is 7.8 in, choose the 7.8 in and round it up to 8. That means your glove size is 8 inches.
