dont mean to be a broken record...

hey everyone, dont mean to be a broken record but i have a question about the A* gp plus gloves. So my friends bought me a pair for my bday and i just got them today. its a large. it fits a little snug. I was wonder will it stretch out a little? Because if it does it should be good. I think i just need the palm width to stretch out maybe .5 mm or 1mm. What do you all think? thanks again

give them a little to break in their are going to feel tight at 1st but dont take tags off if you think your going to be small so you can always return them in they dont break in

yes they will stretch... I love my A*'s... they were snug at first... so much that I thought I got a size to small... now they're PERFECT

well mine was because I have long skinny fingers... but I'm sure they'll stretch out in width too... but you'll get used to them too... and find a happy medium.

got some joe rocket gloves in leather and they were way too small. I returned them after the schmuck told me they were waterproof when everything in me said otherwise. I tried them in a 120 mile trip and they definitely weren't waterproof!

My knuckles are too big for their SP series. The Vega? Drystar fits though. A* is great stuff- I have a jacket and pants!
