I have to second what several other reviewers wrote: Only order these if your thumbs are PARTICULARLY short, relative to the length of your fingers. With a 5 in. thumb length (wrist to tip), I first ordered L, then XL, and the gloves still cut painfully into my thumbs when riding on the brake hoods. I felt that XXL would have been too wide overall, so I had to send these back. I liked the product quality, fabric, and overall design, but the sizing was not for me.
