How to get a great fit.

While these glove fit guides are a great starting point, every person’s hands are different and should be used for reference only. To ensure the best possible fit for your group, we recommend purchasing a range of sizes for members to try.

If your gloves aren’t quite right, Band Shoppe has a 30-return policy. Contact our Custom Care Team at for more info.
