Ansell glove size can be found by measuring around the knuckles of the hand - below the fingers and above the thumb, as on the diagram shown here. This can be done with a cloth tape measure, but if that is unavailable, a strand of string can be wrapped around the appropriate area and then measured with a ruler.
Once the hand has been measured (using inches), the resulting number should be rounded to the nearest whole or half-inch. You can then use the chart below to find your letter or numerical glove size. If the measurement is not a whole number, the next bigger size should be chosen, i.e., if the measurement is 8.5, the glove size needed is 9.
This measurement is an approximation, and can vary depending on hand and finger shape. The best fitting Ansell glove might be a half or full size bigger or smaller than the hand measurement.
Keep in mind that knit materials are normally able to stretch rather well, meaning that the knit HyFlex gloves are somewhat forgiving when undersized slightly. Similarly, thin latex gloves normally stretch well, whereas thicker Nitrile and Neoprene gloves would stretch very little.
