    women's vs. men's gloves


    other than the obvious styling, what's the difference between men's and women's motorcycle gloves. i know that there is sometimes a difference in the styling, but sometimes the styling still looks very masculine. so, what i'm asking is, what size in women's gloves would i wear if i wear a Large in men's?

    Proportionately narrower palm & longer fingers and is more apt to grab a wiener.


    ... and like it

    But, um seriously... the fingers, especially the pinky are way shorter... I would try some on if I were you. I tried on a million small and extra small mens gloves and none of them fit because the pinky especially was too long and there was tons of extra material, so women's gloves may not fit a dude very well at all.... Women's skirts however, are very accomodating for both sexes and a bit more versatile

    Men have longer ringer fingers than index fingers. Women are the opposite.

    FYI, I wear a men's XS-S and a Women's M-L. I highly doubt any women's gloves would fit you if you wear a men's large.
