Scorpion Insulator Gloves
Scorpion EXO Insulator Gloves
Soft interior, good fit (ordered size larger), comfortable, leather on palms and inside thumb area for good wear, and unlike other reviewers finger length and liner length inside are both good. Some soft padding on palms and back of hand, but then these are not advertised as 'armored', so if you want hard protection, look elsewhere.
Gauntlet closure - Bought these specifically for cold or wet weather so I chose gauntlet style with a closure mechanism to tighten the gauntlet over my jacket or rain suit.
Surprise! The Velcro only fully engaged WITHOUT trying to tighten them... trying to snug them up gives very little Velcro female area to match up with the male Velcro tab. I'm gonna have to try to sew more female Velcro fabric onto the glove.
Safety - the reflective single line of piping is on the back (top) of the glove, which means it faces the sky while you ride, so unless you wave at people with your palm inwards nobody will see it but airplane pilots.
Overall, good fit, good materials, should give good service, but design-wise the gauntlet closure tab and reflective piping shows the designers were thinking more 'style' instead of 'usefullness'.
I'd give these a B at best.

The best bang for your buck cold weather gloves!
I am lucky enough to be able to ride year round without worrying about weather conditions such as snow and ice. I rode 90% of this past winter without any problems, mostly thanks to these gloves.
Pros: By far, the best bang for the buck and have been worth every single penny. I rated AIRFLOW as Excellent because I didn't want any airflow and that is what they delivered, these are in fact COLD weather gloves! STYLE is great, I have washed them a few times and they haven't faded at all so far. As far as DURABILITY, I've put about 2500 miles on these gloves and they are still just as good as the day I received them. The stitching is holding up, velcro hasn't lost any "stickiness", and the fabric hasn't worn out whatsoever.
Cons: The only bad thing I can say about these gloves, is the fingertips are a bit tight (I even had size large). They could have made the three middle fingers a bit longer and this glove would have been perfect. Like I said above though, I put 2500 miles into these so they weren't THAT bad.
All in all, I would recommend this glove to everyone I ride with. You can't beat what you get for this price!

Excellent glove for the price.
Only the top is insulated so you get a little more dexterity than you would with most winter gloves.
The protection is minimal but the glove is comfortable and keeps your hands warm.
Great looking glove with reflective piping and a Gauntlet cuff for a good fit.

Great glove for the price.
This is a great winter glove with large cuff which covers the wrist and keeps the wind out.

Good cold/night glove
The gloves are exactly what I wanted. As they are cold weather gloves, I do not feel air coming through the gloves. My hands are warm during my short 20 minute commute.
The inner lining is the only issue I have with the gloves. It feels as though my hands are too loose inside the out lining. Maybe a size smaller would fit better but I'm not sure.
Bottom line, great gloves for decent price. If I bought again I would buy one size smaller.

Great Bang for Buck for Cold Weather Glove
Needed an insulated glove now that the weather is turning on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I use these with Oxford heated grips, and I have wind blocking grip guards (clear plastic rather than the full Barkbuster types). Very comforable glove, warm, took light rain well. Glove is designed for heated grips with the insulation predominately on top of the hand. Less on the palm which is great with heated grips and lets you fell the grips and bike well. Light foam padding on back of hand and knuckles -- that's the one downside, there's not much protection. But for $40 it's a great glove. I used their size chart and ordered XL, which fits fine but is just a bit long in the fingers which makes operating things like turn signals, horn, etc. a bit tougher. Full gauntlet with velcro closure ... easy on and off. I rated "Airflow" as "good" because there is little airflow as this is a cold weather glove -- so it's "good" that it doesn't have much airflow.

Not Great for < 40 Degrees
These gloves are ok. If you have a short commute and the weather isn't too cold, these are just fine. Positives are cost and they're not as bulky as other winter gloves I've tried. Negatives: The fingers in the lining are shorter than the fingers for the shell, so even if I jam my fingers in as far as I can, there is always loose material on the tips of my fingers. This makes it awkward when I'm trying to grab my keys or pay for gas. Another negative: if the weather is too cold they just plain don't work. Your hands will get cold.
I would recommend these gloves for the 40 to 60 degree F range, and for the price they're not bad. If you ride year round and want some WINTER gloves, look elsewhere.

Does the trick
Lining is very soft and warm. Still getting used to the extra bulk when reaching for the clutch, but it beats frozen fingers.
