I have spent a small fortune on return postage costs for gloves that have been returned because the fingers are too long.... i have big hands (xxl richa magma's and xl spidi freetime gloves) with short fingers. i have tried about 10 pairs of gloves up to about £60 in price, but the fingers are all way to long to be safe............... anybody have the same problem that has found a solution.
Help With Gloves Please!!!!!

COBBLERS,take them to a cobblers (leather stitcher) and ask for them to be stitched/shortened inside out.
Don't mean to be sarcastic or anything but I would give up buying mail-order and go to a shop where you can try the gloves on.
Hello, as above.
Get the right fit and brand at retailers, then if they won't do a deal, buy on-line if it's signficantly cheaper. Same with lids.
Support your local bike shop
Try spending money at your local bike shop instead of buying mail order, true, the local bike shop might be a little more expensive but they'll often do a deal which might get close to the price online.
Mail order is killing bricks and mortar retail and if we don't try and support the local shops they'll all shut up shop and get jobs in tesco...
try Alpinestars SP2's
My brother had a similar issue with boots but was reluctant to get off his arse and ride to a shop to try some on. No less than five returned pairs of boots later he eventually took my advice, got on his bike and tried some on. He's now had them for six months and loves them.
I have bought most of my stuff mail order with no problems but the first time I have any issues I'll be heading going retail.
First pair I got fitted except for the thumb which was too lone. didn't think it was a problem till I tried to use the indicators.
Next pair I got were from Hien Gercike, I think they're great.
Since getting them I keep seeing them being used by some biker paramedics
