Sizing Information On The Polyco Optima Rubber Chemical Resistant Glove

Safety Gloves Sizing Information Guide

In order to select the correct size of safety glove, simply measure across your palm at the point indicated in the picture. Then compare your measurement with the chart below to ensure that you select the correct size of glove for your hand.

We would recommend using a tape measure or ruler to get the right measurement. Our measurements are based on centimetres.

Where your measurement falls on the boundary of two sizes, we would recommend selecting the larger of the two sizes for a comfortable fit. However, if you would specifically like your gloves to be a closer fit, perhaps for work that requires fine movements, select the smaller of the two sizes.

Glove Size Measurement Across the Palm
6 (Extra Small) 6cm
7 (Small) 7cm
8 (Medium) 8cm
9 (Large) 9cm
10 (Extra Large) 10cm
