Scorpion Klaw II Gloves
Perfect for big girl hands
I almost never fit in gloves, just a fact of life. My hands are in between man and woman shaped, with square hands and long fingers. When someone said that these are sized a bit smaller, I was on it. Good thing too, as these are great for my hands. My fingers aren't too long for them, and my hand is not swimming in the main body. I have caught the throttle a bit, but that is just the learning curve with new gloves.

Tight Fitting, but great!
As others have mentioned it is a bit small. I usually sit in between a Small and a Medium size though so the medium fit me perfectly. The gloves look great, and the style is awesome. I've had several people compliment me and ask where I got them. the only thing i didn't like was that i bumped into something lightly and the leather tore a bit within the first week. It's a great glove though and the airflow is better than i expected. It's a great spring or fall glove, and it's ok in the summer as well. not terribly hot. I highly recommend it.

Does the job well
Good protection from the leather but doesn't breath very well. The TPU knuckle can make it kinda tight. You may want to go a size up to be safe. I wear a large in most gloves but these were a little tight although they do break in as well. Can't knock it at this price point though

Great Bang for you Buck (low speed) Crash tested!
I bought two pairs for my brother and I for use at our MSF course. We were just going to use plain leather gloves, but the price was too perfect for a double impulse buy and I am happy I did.
Ok so Lets begin with the Cons.
-Fit was a bit Larger than anticipated on finger length. (XL so for the future I will try L in Scorpion gloves. I did measure my palm, but the fingers were a bit to long)
-Two Identical pairs save for Color had slight inconsistencies in stitching and construction. My velcro began tearing after 3 1/2 weeks and my brother's pair is still fine even after harder use.
- The hard part knuckle on my pair seems to have less padding underneath compared to my brother's pair. I wore both gloves while riding and noticed the difference in comfort after 4hrs of use.
-The palm (even though it has reinforced second layer) Are fairly thin so engine vibration will seep in after long riding.
Now for the Pros
- The glove flows Air amazingly keeping the hand's dry and cool.
- Price is easily accessible for a cheap and very protective Glove.
- scaphoid protection works as designed (perfectly)
- The gloves break in soon after wearing and fit comfortably but still hold shape.
- The leather is very durable and resistant to abrasion.
Quick story about crash testing...
During a long day of riding and learning at my Local MSF course. (4 hrs of riding + late night of studying for the test= Should have called it a day already at that point)
On the last exercise for the day I ended up grabbing to much brake and was launched off the bike while going around 22mph. I hit the ground Gloves first slid on them for 1 second and proceeded to tumble away. Not bad wasn't hurt at all, but my jeans ripped slightly with the same amount of contact. The Scorpion gloves on the other hand held up perfectly had barely a scuff. The padding absorbed most of the force and I didn't have any pain in my hands even after they took the brunt of the impact.
So in short, well worth the money and investment.
Kinda wish I bought pants at the same time with knee protection, so I think I'll be getting those next.

Gloves fit me a little on the large side especially on the thumb. The comfort is great thou. Relatively cool. Protection is great. Fell off bike at around 15 mph and two days later the the knuckle are on the glove had road rash. I hadn't noticed it because I did not feel any problems with my hand at the time of the fall. love those suckers.

Great Glove. Watched video so I knew to order a bit bigger. Broke in nicely in a few days. Love putting them on. Could be a bit more grippy, but overall awesome and would buy again. Look good too.
