    Has anyone purchased gloves online? The sizes seem to be all over the place between brands. I currently wear alpinestars gp XXL and they fit well. My previous cheapo M2R ones were a large and also fit well. I want some good winter gloves but the shops here have a poor range of prices sizes and brands. With a three week old baby a trip to sydney is currently out of the question.
    So is it worth the risk of buying online?

    Yeah personally I wouldn't
    I went to CMC and spent about 30 minutes trying on winter gloves for decent length, feel grip etc I thought they had a decent range and in the end buying online I think is bit of a gamble if your just not replacing one for one, and how much $ are you going to save online? 20dollars?

    with out trying things on you can only make a size guess with a brand you know or have tried on . I have 2 sets of gloves, summer Alpine stars = L and Ixon winter = XL .

    I've brought some a year or so ago from a Chinese on-line store and followed their sizing chart and I have to say they were absolutely fine. I still use them every now and again. I wouldn't hesitate to buy gloves on-line again given the money I saved.
