As with all racing safety equipment, driving glove fitment is critically important, and the glove user can increase the risk of injury if they are not fitted properly. Please refer to the general driving glove sizing chart below for proper driving glove fitment.  

This chart is for ADULT driving glove sizing only unless certain manufacturers specify YOUTH/JUNIOR sizes in their standard factory chart.  Otherwise, all YOUTH/JUNIOR/CHILDRENS sizes will be shown below in a completely separate chart.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Driving glove manufacturers commonly recommend different methods of measuring hands for their brand of glove products.  We have researched the Simpson® Safety specified measuring method and walk your through this here - Step-by-Step.

Properly Measuring Glove Fitment For The Simpson® Safety Brand

  • Locate a soft cloth measuring tape.

  • Wrap cloth measuring tape around your hand and over the knuckles while making a fist.
    DO NOT include the thumb and keep the measuring tape snug.

  • Measure both your left and right hands.  Use the measurement from the largest hand.

  • Refer to the sizing chart below to find your glove size for Simpson® Safety glove products.
