Scorpion Guardian Gloves
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.

first of all these are my first gauntlet type of glove I've ever owned…and man for the price they cannot be beat…sizing is true…as if the motorcycle gods hand crafted and molded the glove just for you. and diving you hand into these lucious things is like dipping your hand into a pillowcase of puppies
second they hold up well..i went down on my r1 around 40 in a tight corner and these things didn't suffer any scuffs or tears. bulletproof. these things could survive hiroshima and cherynoble. maybe even the asteroid to kill the dinosaurs.
third…they don't flow air very well so best for non hot days or else your hand might come out smelling like satans bum

Leather gloves for under $100. That is a great price. I am glad I bought these gloves. Very comfortable. After measuring my hand the chart showed I should buy a large, so I bought the large and they fit a little snug, but they will stretch a little and then fit perfectly. Scorpion made a really great product at a nice low price. Would recommend to everyone.
