Unhappy grrrrrrr glove shopping

Ok I'm really starting to get frustrated while TRYING to find gloves that fit. My problem is my hands are not large, but I have long fingers. Does anyone else have this problem? And if so, what do you do to fix the issue? Any particular brands of gloves I should be looking at? Any help would be awesome gals and guys. Thanks.

Held has one model that they say is likely to fit long-fingered hands better. You can check them out here... http://www.helimot.com/catalog/glove...2114_data.html

They also have a section for women's gear.

And cut those nails!

We are in the same boat, Hottie. I will have to try Held's glove too. And I remember that Spidi Carbotechs were mentioned before as well. Too bad I can't tell ya how they fit. Still haven't swung by the dealer to try 'em on.

Keep it carvin'!

thanks guys

I'm going to stop by the dealership tonight and try on the Held's. I've tried Spidi, but they fit too loose through the hand. They feel like they're going to come off. I'll let you know about my success or failure tomorrow.

Cool You know what they say about girls with long fingers...

I've got long fingers also and I found that a size small in the Joe Rocket Speedmaster Glove did me just fine!!!

Yeah, but neither Pete OR Chris will let me have long nails. Something about scratching.

Pete, want to clarify what it was I have or will be scratching???

Well I can't speak for Pete but I don't want you to scratch my 'can' or 'pipe' with those long finger nails!! Plus it's hard to clean a 'chain'....
