Gloves and BIG hands.

So, I have pretty big hands, not really HUGE but big, I currently use a pair of Alpinestars GP-2 in XXXL size and they are still short, specially in the middle and ring fingers, and since the seams are stitched inside, the joint at the tip of the fingers dig between the nail and the finger, not a nice feeling.

Are there any options for people with very long fingers?

Does anyone here has the same problem? OR anyone offers a solution?

Use a different brand. Alpinestars run smaller then other brands. Im in the smae boat. XXL Alpinestars fit really snug compared to other brands XXL gloves.

I believe that certain models of Held gloves are available in short finger or longer finger sizes. http://www.newenough.com/gloves/stre...le_gloves.html

I'm in the same boat (XXXL gloves) and I've yet to find a really comfortable, protective pair of gloves. I wear a set of Cortech Adrenaline. So far they're pretty good for the price.

i'm also in the same boat, and have made a thread few months ago i think on the same thing.. I've still been dealing with my a*stars, which are shorty's and not all that protective, and still pretty snug. They fit better (now that i've busted a few seams from general wear) i think that the dainese i tried on at CG in a XXL felt bigger than the XXL I currently have in a*stars. I have been thinking that I was the only sasquatch out here. guess not! lol. Sometimes it just sucks being a big guy. Jacket sleeves fall short, Jacket backs fall short, gloves are too small. Boots are hard to find.
