I fist ordered this glove in a medium and it was a bit big. The exchange was fast and easy, and the size small fits perfectly. I’ve ridden with these gloves once on a 50F degree day and was very comfortable. The minimal padding is just right and the seams inside the glove are barely noticeable. Overall, just a really well made and comfortable glove. One note on the sizing that is not mentioned on the website is that a size medium is a 9 and size small is an 8. I typically wear an 8 in gloves, so this was accurate.
I own original pair of leather Kitsbow gloves and was super excited to try out the High Line Leather Glove. You may remember that the first version received rave reviews despite their hefty ~$90 price tag. I loved mine and road them in from 50 to 100 degrees for several seasons (and they are still going strong). There's nothing like a real leather glove and the High Line Glove does not disappoint. I read a number of reviews and after watching the Kitsbow video on Instagram for the release of the new Lightweight Kitchel, I decided to size down to Medium (even though I measure on the lower end of Large). I am glad I did because the fit is PERFECT. I am surprised by some of the reviews that mention odd finger lengths...that was not my experience at all. The quality of these gloves makes them a bargain. most companies will sell you glove with stretchy material on top, sewn to a lightly padded synthetic leather. They cost $30 and last 1/2-full season. They may cost twice the price but the High Line Glove is genuine leather, quality construction and oh so ergonomic. They will last 5 times longer, be more comfortable and perform so much better than those cheap synthetic leather cheap gloves. There are so many subtle design features that set these gloves apart from the run-of-the-mill gloves out there...the closure stays brilliantly out of the way, there is padding where you need it and not where you don't and they breathe but keep you warm. These are great up to 60 degree temps (or warmer) but, at some point, it gets warm enough that you will want the Kitchel Gloves. Another great product! Cheers Kitsbow!
I wear a size 12 glove and normally can’t find full-finger biking gloves that large, so I end up wearing fingerless gloves or Mechanix-style “impact" gloves instead. I don’t really like fingerless biking gloves, and the “impact” gloves don’t have padding in the right places for biking, so neither were a great solution. I was really happy to find these full-finger biking gloves from Kitsbow in a size that fit, and they have some nice biking-specific features that I couldn’t find anywhere else—I ended up buying three pairs, just in case they’re discontinued!
Good feel through the palm and fingers. I used them fat biking with BarMitts in subzero weather. Perfect!
I have a difficult hand to fit gloves for- long fingers, not very wide. Because I'm used to wearing XL/XXL gloves in other brands to get the fingers long enough, I was hesitant to order a large in these but trusted the sizing guide. At first they felt too small, but I took a chance and wore them hoping they'd stretch. They did, and I'm glad I ordered the large! The fingers are juuuust long enough, and everything else fits great. They've shrugged off a crash in some jagged rocks with only some scratches that didn't make it through the leather of the palm. I've had them through the winter in Idaho, but only wear them if the temps are above the mid 30s. they'll likely be too warm for summer so I will be ordering Kitchels ASAP!
