Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.
Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.
Waist: Measure the natural waistline.
Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.
Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. Then length measurement will vary depending on the style.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
Used these for the first time in very wet conditions. Hands were soaked through after a couple of hours.
Consequently, the rest of the journey was very uncomfortable due to the cold and wet. Absolutely not good enough for the price. I'll be purchasing Gore Tex gloves after returning these.

1st Outing in the lakes
As a good customer of Go Outdoors Stockton I called in for a good quality waterproof glove as I was going to the Lakes on the 9/1/16,headed off to the opposite direction to Haystacks saw a good line that looked a 1000 feet,gloves are a good fit got the large size,lots of gorse to climb through they stood up to that without anything spiking my fingers and hands,unfortunately after about 500 ft of steep scrambling my hands are soaking wet and as its about 2 degrees out here Im not impressed,this is the second time Ive bought Sealskinz gloves and having given them a second chance I will not be buying them again when they are dry from the wash I will be taking them back.

Fits like a...
I can fault the quality of materials and how they're put together, but at this stage I can't vouch for whether they perform as advertising as they don't fit!
As I was buying my first pair a Sealskinz gloves online, I followed the manufacturer instructions for sizing to the letter before ordering. They suggest measuring around the knuckles of your dominant hand in inches and sizing accordingly which I did. They state that if you measure a 9 that you require a Medium as an example on the guide. My measurement with a little extra allowing for flexing a fit was just a smidgen under 9, so I faithfully ordered the medium as instructed.
Far too small! To the extent that wearing them on a cold morning for the short commute to work was so uncomfortable I couldn't wait to get them off.
Sealskinz didn't want to know and offered to sell me some at a discounted rate after claiming my money back from Go Outdoors.
Go Outdoors couldn't be more helpful! Although I await the replacements the customer service I have recieved so far is exemplary.
My advice is to buy only from Go Outdoors, and buy the next size up!
