Check the gear guide up top for more info, but Air nailed it as usual.

Bauer 4-Rolls are probably my favorite gloves on the rack as they tend to be forgiving of fit. Yes they are loose and run a hair big (not as bad with the newer models), but I prefer a tight fit and even I like those gloves. Protection is outstanding as well. No gimmicks, a really good price, just a solid glove.

Even if they don't have a great selection locally, I'd try on all the gloves you can find to get a general idea of fit. You want to put them on, make a fist, and have the fingers just be touching the end give or take a hair. If they aren't touching, they're too big. If it feels tight and/or hurts, they're too small.
