The size guides are based on average hand dimensions for different ages. The sizes should therefore only be seen as a recommendation.
SIZE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SPORT GLOVES
It is important to find the correct size from the start as sport gloves generally do not stretch over time. There should be a small gap between hand and glove to bind air which makes the glove warmer. A sports glove that is too tight will most likely be perceived as colder.
If you are in between two unisex sizes we recommend that you normally choose the larger one. Our women’s gloves have a more narrow fit than the unisex models. If you are a woman with unisex size 7 you should normally choose size 8 in our women’s gloves. Junior size 7 and unisex size 7 is not the same size as they follow different size ranges.
The family business Martin Magnusson & Co. was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the small village Hestra, Sweden.
Hestra gloves are manufactured in their own factories with personally purchased leather, fabric, wool and other materials. This allows for control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. Several Hestra models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
