Scorpion Klaw II Gloves
Awesome at first!
First things first: For the price they are great, but don't try to make them your main gloves.
I have had these gloves for a while. I really enjoyed wearing them at first, they were quite snug and the grip was solid. The styling is great and the white and black goes well with my other gear.
You get what you pay for though, In less than a year of off and on use, they have stretched so much they nearly come off in the wind when saluting other riders. The velcro has almost completely lost its sticking power, and when the weather is just a bit cold the gloves literally stick to the control levers...even after cleaning the levers and the gloves. This makes modulating the clutch difficult on those frosty mornings.
Overall, they are great looking and fit well at first but they stretch a LOT and wear out quickly.

Poor build quality
These gloves are incredibly comfortable and breath well in the scratching city that is Houston, Texas in the summer. What keeps me from recommending these gloves is the poor build quality. One of the finger tips stitching came apart within the first month of wearing and the stitching on the velcro tabs came undone after the second month.

For the money, tough to beat
Love these gloves, especially for the price. They feel just as quality as higher priced Alpinestars gloves. All leather, robust design. I wear them from 5-38C (40-100F) with no problems. Just throw a liner in for some additional comfort. Suggestions for improvements are:
1 - add some sort of underwrist pull tab. Doesn't have to be huge, but something.
2 - replace the small velcro wrist strap with something wider and more robust. The current design is really narrow and small, and is easily undone. It does a poor job of securing the glove. Annoyingly, my coat likes to snag the strap and tear it loose.
If they fixed the strap at this price, this glove would be unbeatable. Overall a solid, solid effort.

Great feeling and fitting gloves. Padding on palms helps reduce vibration transfer. The only draw back is the stitching on the velcro at the wrist, the tab has seperated from the velcro. Added two staples to the tab - all better.

I was getting sick of buying $100 plus gloves that wear out after a year of use, so I decided to try these gloves.
They seem about the same quality as the expensive Dainese gloves I have bought in the past, but with a much better price tag.
They do fit a bit small. I fit in a LG Dainese Carbon s-st, but I ordered XL for these gloves, and they fit great.

Wore Out Quickly
Exactly the glove I was looking for, although wore through the first layer of leather on the right index and middle fingers & separated the Velcro from the tab closure after ~1 year. Will probably buy another pair.

Good gloves over all, they fit true to size. The air flow through these gloves is adequate. Not like a mesh glove, so it keeps my hands a little warmer. They can be a bit of a challenge to get on and off (I broke my hand a few years ago) but they don’t limit your mobility when they are on. I like these gloves and might get another pair as a backup some day.

Good gloves for the money
I've had these gloves for over a year and 7000+ miles. It is super hard for me to find a glove that fits me well since I have tiny hands, but these fit perfect. They breath fairly well, but when it is 90+ they can still get a little toasty. My only complaint is that there is some stitching coming undone on the right hand where the thumb is sewn to the rest of the glove. Hopefully I can have it repaired, but if not I will be buying another pair of these gloves. That's just how much I love them.
