Scorpion Guardian Gloves
I bought this as my first real pair of gloves - Did not disappoint
Wanted something I could wear year around in Southern California. Blistering hot summers and mild winters. Well, they don't keep your hands that warm sub 50 degrees, but it keeps them warm enough to prevent hypothermia. lol They don't flow air amazingly well either but it gets the job done.
What these do right are 1. Comfort 2. Protection 3. Style.
They are VERY comfortable and I was used to them after the first day of riding. The stiching is on the outside so there's no annoyance on your fingers.
Protection: it's pretty much a full gauntlet style glove. Haven't gone but I'm fairly confident they will protect my hands.
Style: They're f@#$%g power ranger gloves. What more could you ask for?

First pair of gauntlet style gloves. Overall, without much to compare to, seems like a great product for the cost. Even though they do have perforations, I found them comfortable to around 40F, but your tolerance may vary. The gauntlet can be slim enough to go under a cuff and expands enough to go over. Protection seems good; both knuckles and palm sliders. I got them in white, I like the styling as well. Construction seems good, I prefer gloves to be snug fitting and the way they are sewn I do not have the inseems digging under my nails.

great for the price
Took some getting used to, because of the gloves I upgraded from had minimal protection. Now that they're broken in, they're very comfortable. They seem very sturdy and we'll made. Sizing was spot on , I'm a large. I haven't had a chance to test them out in hot weather but I don't expect a whole lot of ventilation.

The gloves are comfy, look cool, and would probably do well to protect you in a fall. The plastic logo plate on the outer forearm of one of the gloves stays flat and does not curve with the outside edge of my forearm which is slightly awkward at times. Other than that, two thumbs up.

This is an early review on my day-old gloves that replaced a pair of Icon gloves that the stitching kept coming out of. For that reason I rated Protection & Durability at Average, as it's neither here nor there. I will update this review if they disintegrate in a month.
SIZING: My hand measured 8 1/2 inches around the palm, so I ordered XL, and they fit SNUG but NOT TIGHT, which is exactly what I wanted.
These appear to be thick, solid leather w/perforations, with no frilly lace vents to fall apart. (Airflow: Fair) They're lined with a fleece like material. Will probably really like that for our 40 degree southern California winter mornings. Maybe not so much in 100+ degree heat.
I hope the stitching stays intact for more than a few months (i.e. warranty period). It seems that's the weak point in most products these days.

Comfortable and Purposeful
I wear the gloves for commuting and for fun riding every so often. They are nice and comfortable, I am riding in the PACNORWEST so there is a good amount of rain and that is not a problem for these gloves (Hands stay dry and not frozen). They are probably more protection than I need but better safe than sorry.

Great buy for the price
I bought these ahead of a recent track day, and unfortunately, went down about halfway through the day. Gloves held up extremely well. Besides minor abrasions, they performed admirably. The only issue I have, is there is a pad that is situated right on the palm which interferes a little with resting your weight on the bars during long trips. However, I would also like to point out that during my crash, that was a perfectly placed impact point and the pad did its job perfectly. The tradeoffs we make for safety... All in all, good buy, not the most comfortable on earth, but certainly protective and appealing.

Scorpion really came out good with this gloves, went down on 45 mph and scraped both palms of my hands. And I'm still wearing them up until now there we're minor scuff on both gloves. The only down side, not enough ventilation the holes lookes like they used a nail on it lol. The velcro started wearing off after a month of use. Besides all that I will probably buy another pair and I wish they made them a Lil longer like a normal racing gloves.
