These gloves speak for themselves when you put them on! They are designed to be extremely comfortable, warm, and fit snuggly to enable swimming in very cold open water conditions. Just how cold you go is relative to the swimmer's cold tolerance. The palm and front of the fingers has a hexagonal grip that allows for excellent purchase on the water and a non-slip feel if you are trying to hold anything. In addition, the 4 inch wrists make sure they are long enough to tuck under the wetsuit sleeve, leaving no skin exposed.
While ideal for training, or other triathlon/swimming events, swim gloves are not Ironman race legal.
The measurement is the exact length of the glove and your hand from wrist crease to index finger. For swimming most people like a very tight fit so you should choose a glove measurement that is a little smaller than your hand measurement. However, for other activities and a more relaxed fit choose a glove that matched your hand measurement.
