Using a soft tape measure or ruler, measure from end of your longest finger to crease at wrist.
Booting up a coolie? Traversing a windy ridge? Out ahead of the group doing the dirty work and kicking in a new skin track? A ton of insulation isn't always necessary, but protection from wind, spindrift, and of course the occasional flurry is key. The TOUR offers just enough barrier from the elements to keep the digits comfortable, while allowing you to work hard without overheating.
As everyone mentioned these (and all of Truck gloves) are a screaming deal. But the quality is definitely there too - the Tour gloves I got seem to be really well-made and are quite comfy and no-nonsense in design. They're very lightweight and not meant for real warmth, though I decided to ski down in them 4 times to see how warm they were and they were actually fine (about 20 degrees out with wind). There was a small stitching flaw in the first pair but they immediately sent out another pair to replace, which was amazing. I went for a size up for the replacement as the original pair was a bit snug (but probably have worked fine) and I'm glad I did. Super-comfortable on an all-day tour, didn't get soggy from snow at all, though I'm definitely going to put some leather treatment on them to keep them fresh. My only tiny issue is they really don't work very well with my iphone touchscreen, but then again I've never seen a pair of decent gloves that did so I'm not surprised at all. I'm looking forward to getting another pair of the warmer ski gloves!
Great gloves at a great price, except that the fingers seem a little skinny per the length and squeeze my fingers.
This glove is awesome, perfect for ski tours from beginning of the season till the end. I have had them in cold below freezing temps and warm spring days, they are fantastic. Blocks wind and elements, but your hands never feel like they are overheating. Great dexterity, great grip, works with a touch screen.
I tend to not switch gloves between the up and the down and so I was looking for something that would stay on my hand for the whole tour, but not end up a soaked puddle that started to make my hands cold. I couldn't have asked for a better glove, I am a converted Truck customer for life. My next plan is to add an M1 variant for those rare days when a glove change is needed.
Oh and you can't beat that price
Living in BC I have found these to have just enough warmth, super breathable, great for uphill skiing. Temps on my first couple excursions were -6 to - 12C.
Super packable. I like the leather palm / fingers as it feels like they will last a good while.

DISTINCTIVE GLOVES/DISRUPTIVE PRICES
For five years I have traveled from coast to coast introducing TRUCK to the operational groups at nearly every ski resort from Maine to Washington. The goal was to build a glove that met the varied needs of the patrollers, lifties, snowmakers, and ski instructors who demand a quality product as well as one they can actually afford. And if we could do that, well, then we knew we had something good to offer.
Today we have a faithful following of resort employees who swear by the quality and costs we offer.
