    New question here. Fox full finger gloves sizing?

    Hi I am in the process of getting several new pairs of gloves, since I am not happy with the 661 and the Giro models Ive had.

    I kind like the Fox Digit and Reflex looks, but Ive heard somewhere that Fox gloves are smaller than normal. Say I use S in 661 and Giro, and that I should go for M in Fox offerings?

    Anyone has experience with Fox glove sizing?

    I just bought a pair of Digits. I like them, but they do run a little tight. The wrist strap also barely closes around my wrist and I have thin wrists.

    Fox and Giro sizing around the palm is about the same. Giro fingers are a bit longer than the Fox gloves that I have tried though.

    I usually wear Large, but I needed XL Fox Digits and they still took a little breaking in...nice glove though.

    If a S giro fit you, I would go for a S in Fox, personally.

    Giro seams were in all the wrong places for my hands, fox weren't. BUT, I wear the same size in both brands (XL). For comparison, I wear a M in home-depot/walmart gloves and a 9 (L) in Held gloves.

    I bought two pairs..black and white of the Fox Dirtpaw's 2012 and normally in the short-finger Bontragers I have are in XL, but the Fox's I had to get XXL which is size 12. perfect fit and I love them.

    Local Yamaha dealership had them in stock, so it was good to try on before order online (for less price).

    Fox gloves run small for me. Needed a large, but I wear a medium with other brands.

    I just bought the Fox Digits 3 weeks ago. I bought a large, which is normal for me, but the Fox Digits were tighter than my previous Giros (also Large). The Fox fits great though, I like them much better than the Giros. Good grip, seem to be durable but then again I just bought them. Picked them up for $30 at LBS. Yeah, best bet is to go try some on.

    please please please go try them on. I swear, every year fox gloves fit differently on me. Right now I'm in a large dirtpaw and reflex. My first pair ever was a large. Then I got a sidewinder that was a large and was too big. Then I got a medium unabomber and they were just right. Now I'm back in a large and they're just right. I doubt that my hands shrunk and then grew again. I really like my gloves to fit tight with no bunching and no moving around, but they can't constrict either. I wear a large Giro Remedy glove, for reference. They were just a bit bigger.

    Moral of the story is, go try them on someplace, and hopefully buy them there. Mail order discounts on gloves aren't that big, but getting a pair that fits is worth it.

    +1 for trying them on. I replaced an older pair of mediums with a new pair of extra large. And I would not call my hands big at all.

    As far as I can tell, Fox gloves got two sizes smaller this year. I used to be able to wear an XL Dirtpaw, which was a little snug, while an XXL Dirtpaw was a little loose but felt much better and therefore was my go to pair. Now, I cannot even get 4 fingers into an XL Dirtpaw and the XXL Dirtpaw is way too small for me to get my hand into. So Fox gets no business from me this year.
