      Comments about Shimano Explorer Gloves:

      I ordered an extra large. There is nothing bigger. Very hard to get on and I do not have big hands. Some one with bigger hands would have torn it apart trying to get them on. Nothing to grab onto when trying to get them off.

        Use these for my road riding. Reduced the pain and fatigue on my hands after the first ride. They are a little snug, but I'm sure will stretch over time and use. The padding is in all the right places making the ride more comfortable. They look great and perform well. Very good glove for the price.

            Lots of padding on these gloves, more than I am used to, but I find they are still cool enough for my climate. Took them on a 90km ride this week and they were great. I usually wear an XL in gloves, went with XL and they fit fine. Pretty basic glove at a good price, but if you are particularly interested in a glove that has minimal padding this glove is not a good choice.

            I usually wear a Argentina . Lately it seems everything is made small so I ordered XL. Can't even get my hands in them, order 2 sizes larger than you normally wear.,

              At this price, you can't go wrong. Padding is in the right locations, minimized my discomfort during long rides.

                I have larger hands and the XL fits true to size as advertised. Padding is thin and soft, comfortable feel on handle bars.

                I like the gloves, well made. Run a little small. Would go size larger if you don't want to fit tightly.

                  Comments about Shimano Explorer Gloves:

                  I just bought a pair of these gloves they look very nice feel very good and true they run a lot smaller than others I have worn. I bought an extra large and they are too small for me made me feel as though I had monster hands lol.

                  All in all the cliche' applies to these gloves they fit like a glove. Almost like a second second skin.

                  when you purchase these be sure to go one or two sizes up. Meaning if you wear a large you may need xx large
