Using a tape measure, wrap the tape around the dominant hand at the widest part (between your thumb and index finger) and make a loose fist.

The leather inspires confidence; thick enough, but not so thick it takes away your manual dexterity. The feel is great, soft, yet strong; the fit is like a second skin. The style is great, like a narrow gantlet, it goes under your cuff, sealing off the wrist against the cold; the top is slightly puckered by three short lines of stitching, which pull the sides together to make a snug fit. So far, perfect. It's a mite early to write a review, though, because so much depends on how well they serve. Do they expand? lose their shape? bag up? Can they withstand a bit of wear 'n tear, or do they wear through? Shall have to wait & see. But looks good so far!

5 stars Rreview of close air defence operator's gloves. Written by

Very good quality gloves. I bought these gloves to fly my paraglider. The gloves are strong enough to protect my hands against rope burns and abrasions in heavy landings.Dexterity is not a problem as I can feel the glider's controls and can use my flight instruments with out any concerns.

5 stars Close Air Defence Operator's Glove - First Rate Written by

I purchased the Close Air Defence Operator's Glove (CADOG) for use as a helicopter pilot flying glove because of cuff length. Outstanding quality. Leather is thin but not weak. Stitching is excellent and the added leather insert at the base of the thumb at the palm reminds me of the bi-swing shoulder gusset on leather jackets - nice detail and less stress on the leather/stitching in this area. Size 9.5" true-to-size snug fit and finger length very good (not short, not long). Tactile feel outstanding. After a couple of wearings the leather stretches a bit in the palm area. Not an issue because fit is not loose and I would have the option of a silk liner added for cooler weather without excessive tightness. I think a half size tighter would result in an initial tight fit (vs snug) and it would loosen to a snug fit - acceptable if you don't plan on inserting a liner. Extremely happy with my purchase.
