Scorpion Klaw II Gloves
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.

For the money, I think I'd be hard-pressed to get a better pair of gloves. They are incredibly comfortable, and while the thumbs and middle fingers are nice and snug, the index fingers of both gloves are about 3/8 of an inch too long. I haven't had a chance to take them for a ride yet, but I have high hopes for these gloves.
One thing that isn't exactly clear in the demo video is that the knuckles actually sit on a separate piece of leather. It is attached on the sides and just in front of the knuckles, closest to the fingers. Not a complaint or anything, just an observation.

Bought these just before a 500 mile weekend trip heading north. Left my house - 84 degrees. Arrived up north 45 degrees. The gloves kept my hands comfortable the entire trip.

Excellent Glove For The Money
I had been wearing Cortech HDX gloves in size medium until one cuff ripped almost completely off after almost two years. IN that time I have been replacing my other gear with Scorpion products and figured the gloves would be my last thing to replace.
After reading reviews I ordered a size large as a lot of people said they run about a size small and it was pretty dead on. There is the tiniest bit of extra finger length in the pinky and thumb, but it doesn't affect my motor skills any more than my last gloves.
I took my first ride this with these this morning in about 50 degree weather and didn't feel a thing at high speed. I can imagine that in hot weather these could get a bit sweaty, but they seem to be fairly absorbent.
The pre-form in these gloves is spot on and there are stretch panels in all the right places. On top of that they look really awesome. I'm not sure you could beat these gloves for under $50.

Sturdy gloves, expected from Scorpion.
Scorpion has always made good moto gear. I haven't really had the chance to break this one in, it still feels really stiff, but that is what is expected from new motorcycle gloves. Stitching seems solid. The size does run a little smaller so if you're normally a large, I would get the XL just like what Anthony said in his video review. It's a cool looking glove. Ventilation isn't as great as I thought it would be. Would be good for winter gloves.
