Anybody have any experience with this? Every other glove measures from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the palm, but fox says "Measure around the fullest part of the hand not including the thumb. If you're right handed, use your right hand and vice versa." I want to get the dirtpaw glove online with my new helmet to save on shipping, but I'm according to every other glove manufacturer I have a medium hand (fox says I have a small). Any input/past experience with sizing compared to other brands?

Most Gloves measure about the palm for sizing.

I have issues with Fox's wrists being tight compared to the palm.

I also find I need to try gloves on because of the length of my finger webs vs my fingers.

My fingers are relatively normal length, and I haven't had issues with webbing in the past.

I'm heading in to REI tomorrow, so I'll try on a pair of similar Fox gloves tomorrow. I was just hoping to get them ordered a little sooner as my current gloves have massive holes in them.

Just for the record, you guys were right; Fox glove sizing is the truest. I tried multiple Fox gloves on and several other brands as well, and ended up with a small the whole way through. Everyone but Fox recommended a medium.

on Fox's recommendations, i bought size Large online. turns out i could've used XL (i'm assuming) because the Large don't fit my ET fingers. oh well, it's close enough.
