This question came in from Glen who needs help with finding gloves. Let's see if I can help.
I could use your help, even though I'm a guy ;-)
I'm looking for a summer weight waterproof ADV glove and not finding much luck.The main issue is I have wide hands with short fingers. I've tried Rukka, A-Star, Revit and Racer.
The closest thing I have found is Klim in a size medium. I currently wear the Klim Caldera and Inversion pro. The mediums are very tight at first but once the leather breaks in, they are just about perfect. I really can't work with long fingers.
Anything you can suggest?
Well Glen, my recommendation would then be for Held, Cortech or Tourmaster. For Held, I've had luck with the Steve Classics:
These are available in short, however, at the time of this post, it seems that certain sizes are out of stock :(. (Sidenote, these are are actually great for women too, because if you have really small hands or long fingers, they're available in a 6/XS) and 7 long). Protection wise, they may not be what you're looking for but they're a nice all around glove. What's also nice is that the wrists are elastic, so that makes it easier to get in and out.
Unfortunately not all of Held's gloves are available in short, just the Steve Classics.
