I work at UPS, both as a driver and in the Warehouse. Over the years I have tried many different gloves. Far and away, the ATLAS line has always performed the best! Literally thousands of boxes a night go through my hands! Atlas holds up to the abuse. I have shopped around, and Palm Flex is the best I have found on price, and service. Don't waste your money on a lesser product! Do it right the first time with Atlas gloves through Palm Flex!

picture of hand To find out your glove size, measure (in inches) around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.

Glove Size Equivalents
Some manufacturers indicate glove sizes by number and others by letters standing for Small, Medium, Large, etc. We always indicate the size of a pair of gloves the same way the manufacturer does. Use the table at the right to translate between "letter sizes" and "number sizes".

D) If you are RIGHT handed, take measurements from your RIGHT hand

F) If you are LEFT handed, take measurements from your LEFT hand

G) The number of inches measured equals the size of the glove

Historical records detail the existence and use of gloves back to pre-historic times, yet it wasn't until the 19th century that a method for sizing gloves was devised.

In 1834 a man named Zavier Jouvin from Grenoble established a system of sizing gloves by measuring the hand around its widest part, the knuckles. Jouvin's measurement system is called "Pied de Roe", or "King's Foot."

Glove sizes have not been affected by metrication, and are usually sized from 4 - 10. The hand that is used the most is measured, as it tends to be slightly larger. Usually this is the hand that the person writes with.

A good fit ensures good wear and comfort.
