The size of a glove is defined in the Standard EN420 as the hand circumference as measured around the palm at a point 20mm above the crotch of the thumb but excluding the thumb.
The size is expressed in inches. All gloves with the EN standard comply with the standard sizing as outlined in the table below:
|Hand Size||Circumference||Hand Length||Approximate Equivalents|
Many gloves do not comply with the Standard EN420. In these cases or if the size is shown as “S, M, L” the size marking should be used as an indicator only.
