Sizing & Fit

What size should I get?
See our Size Chart and Sizing FAQS information page for best advice.
Between sizes?
  1. If you have longer fingers go with the larger size.
  2. If you have short or normal fingers go with the smaller size.
  3. If you like a bit roomier glove that will pack out less and be a bit warmer (more space for hand to breathe), go with the larger size.
  4. If you like a glove that will break in more for optimum dexterity go with the smaller size.
  5. For optimum long term fit new gloves should be slightly snug. If you think they may be too big, they are probably too big.
How does the current sizing compare to earlier models?
Our original models, Long Cuff Glove, Short Cuff Glove and Ski Mitten tended to run smaller. New models run true to size.
How should my new gloves fit?
Free the Powder Gloves are made with all-stretchable materials that are designed to break in over time to give you a custom-like fit. When first trying them on, they should feel somewhat snug. See our Size Chart and Sizing FAQS information page for best advice.
