Gloves for Arthritic Hands?

My hands have always been wide. Finding gloves was no problem my whole life, I'd wear large or extra large.

Since about 10 years ago my fingers and joints have swollen and bent due to an arthritic condition.

Now my fingers are too fat for size large and too bent for extra large. I either spend time forcing larges over each finger or have floppy parts at the end with XL.

I'm wondering if anyone else faced this problem. Regular gloves made out of fleece or cotton aren't bad, but leather motorcycle gloves are not forgiving enough to wear cause they don't stretch and conform to my weird, tree branch fingers.

I'm hoping someone will recommend a glove that combines leather with elastic somehow that will help me out.

Thanks in advance.

I wear a XXXL normally in gloves and often have difficulty getting gloves that fit my stubby fat fingers!

I bought a pair of Qwi gloves that Dan suggested. I'm reporting on two things. First, the measurements they ask you to take are too small, or rather, the gloves you get are too small if you use their measurement chart.

I ordered a large and I couldn't get the large over my hand. I recommend going a size or so larger.

Now the good news. I told the guy I needed to swap the ones I got for the next size larger and I needed them for a ride this weekend. He's sending me a pair and told me to return what I had at my convenience.

Good quality gloves. Great customer service.!

I always have a hard time finding gloves that fit me right, too. It's not that I have fat fingers, just the opposite, I have small hands. Me being too picky doesn't help, either!
I have found Olympia medium size fits well. Too many times if I get a glove that fits my palm, they are too long for my fingers.
I usually but smaller than necessary and after I sweat in them and hit some rain a few times, the fit is much better.
