gloves for short fingers

I need some new gloves, trouble is I have short fingers and always have 1/2" of spare finger which makes using my satnav difficult. The only make I have found that do long or short fingered options is Held. Does anybody have any other recommendations or are they the only game in town?

Regards, Roger.

Re: gloves for short fingers

Have you considered Klim? The sizing chart/measurement has been pretty accurate for me. I just returned a pair of Held gloves because the fingers were a bit too long.

All twins:
2017 R1200GS low
2014 Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom
2012 Ducati Diavel
2014 R1200RT (gone)
2008 R1200GS (gone)
2007 SV650 Naked (gone)
2007 Moto Guzzi Norge (gone)
2006 Harley Ultra (gone)
1992 Harley Electra Glide Classic (gone)

Thanks for the reply I will see what they have to offer. Anyone else know who makes gloves for us short fingered folk?

Also look up Lee Parks Gloves. Very nice stuff. He make the glove small so they stretch with your hand

Re: gloves for short fingers

Held "Steves" gloves have a short finger option. I live in that neighborhood also. Can't tell you how many gloves I've been disappointed with because of short fingers. I now do not mail order any gloves. I stick to goat skin ones from the farmer supply and my shorty Helds.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.
