Scorpion Klaw II Gloves
Excellent gloves, with a caveat...
The quality, looks and feel of the gloves are great! They kept my hands warm in 50 degree weather, which is saying a lot, because my hands and feet get cold very fast. However,
They recommend to go up one size, but I found out the gloves to run true to size, so the large that I ordered, fit a bit big and got bigger after a couple of uses. Also, the right glove for some reason made my knuckles very sore after about 2 hrs of wearing them. Couldn't exchange them because the lettering on the sides fell off almost instantly, plus they were out of the mediums, and I needed them to take the MRT. I had to finish with regular winter gloves. Not sure what to make of the whole thing, as I love the gloves, but they kill my knuckles and they're a bit too big. Can't comment on durability as I just got them.

the best gloves I've tried
I use these gloves everyday and they are my favorite I've owned. They are very comfortable inside and protect well. Overall feel and quality is quite good and they have a nice feel on the bike.

So far so good. still have one complaint though
I did not order these from revzilla but bought them at my local motcycle shop. So I will start with the bad just to get it out of the way.
Bad- small velcro on wrist strap is not good..have had my gloves for a very short amount of time and second time unstrapping the gloves the velco came off the tab and used fabric glue to put it back on. I feel like over time the small strap may rip off completely
Now the good
Good- Great fit if you order the right size. I would sugest one size up from what you normaly wear. I also have ham hawks for hands so fitting gloves is a pain for me anyways.
-Protection seems great, I really like the leather double stitched on the lowside side as if you are going down its likely a lowside.
-Ventilation is nice but not over kill for those cooler mornings, or if you live in New England those freezing mornings..(I wear liners on those below 50 days)
So to sum it up all in all a good glove for a great price. Just be aware of the tab.

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.
