Your glove size is the measurement in inches around the palm of your hand. If you are right-handed, measure your right hand. If you are left-handed, measure your left hand. Most of the Geier Gloves we sell are offered in sizes 6½ through 12, by half sizes (no size 11½). The Lothlorian Gloves and Mittens are offered in sizes S through L.

Gloves in normal use require little care. Gloves which are normally kept dry will pick up enough natural oils from the skin to keep them supple. If they do become wet, and somewhat stiff after drying, they will soon soften with wearing.
After some period of use, especially a soaking, most leather will benefit from a good leather dressing. All Geier Gloves can be made more water resistant by applying Pecard Leather Dressing. The full grain western chrome tanned finish leather of the Deer and Elkskin gloves give a particularly exceptional grip on tools and reins known as a “Western Drag”. Since this dressing leaves a slightly waxy surface, it will alter the Western drag characteristic. For this reason we suggest you test the dressing on the back of a glove to evaluate the change. The dressing will darken light leather somewhat.
