Need some help... inches vs. cm :(

Hey Folks,

i need your help

I Want to buy some Alpinestars Gloves, unfortunately they had not really a size chart. I wrote them an email an i got a link to this site

http://www.revzilla.com/alpinestars-size-chart#198

First, i am not 100% sure if my measurement is right... after that, i just can measure in CM

Here are two Pics of my Hand... (its not easy to took a Photo with one Hand, holding a measure Band in the other )





Thats the Glove i want to buy:

http://www.alpinestars.com/Tech1_KM/.../p/355198.html

I hope you can tell me which Size i need (i want that glove tight!). I think i need the MD Size right?But means MD the M Size on the Alpinestars HP ??

Thanks

Marco

The MD means medium. You would need to choose the M in the pulldown menu on the order form for the gloves you want. Hope this helps.

MD+M, measure your hand from the bottom of your palm to the tip of your middle finger. Give the measurement and I can suggest a size. My hand is 7 and 1/2 inch and I typically wear large gloves. I've had alpine stars, thor etc and they're typically cut to fit snug for Mountain bike, motocross etc...

Nice "Palm"

And for a second I thought you were really getting ready for the Kating when we meet in Munich

Those are nice gloves though

Edit: Hell!!!! For that price, I'm getting a set too!!!!

What color are you getting your gloves in??

I would say either M or L. I know my Mechanix gloves are an L and fit me tight and snug.

Hey,

i can order two Pairs if you want, just tell me your size and colour. I can hand your gloves at the MobileTradition Meet and we can split the sipping costs

I think the last time i was karting is about 6-8 Years ago... now i got allmost 100kg... i think i dont need an eKart... i need a N54 powered Kart

I think i order Size L ... since Alpinestars is an italien Brand... The Italiens are small anyway

The Palm translation was funny...
looks like you have your glove size worked out
by the way your palm is the surface of your hand not including your fingers, same side you showed in your pictures. You have the tape measure wrapped across it.

you should be fine with L, Better just a little big than cutting off the circulation when your driving. If you measue from the bottom of your thumb next to your wrist to the tip of your middle finger and it's around 7.5 inces (approx 19 cm) you should be fine with large. thats what my hand measures and I usually go with large. Plus if they don't fit to your liking you can return for a different size.
