Scorpion Klaw II Gloves
A quality glove at an inexpensive price.
I've ran the Scorpion Klaw II gloves for the last two plus years. I'm finally retiring them as they've been the only moto-mitts I wear and they've seen quite a lot of use. They certainly have stood the test of time.
The goat-skin leather breaks in nicely in a relatively short period of time and the fit it true to form. I have tiny carnie hands and these puppies in a small fit me to a tee. They also allow a fair bit of airflow, so definitely in the three season category. Might be able to get away with some winter rides too if you feel no pain/have heated grips.
Protection is excellent. The padded palm is thick and beefy, and the protection around the knuckles will definitely do the job if you go down on your fists or start a bar brawl.
Styling is a little Ricky Racer but I suppose it's on the more understated realm of that spectrum, especially if you get them in official color of motorcycling, black. I cite the sweet sonic speed strips on the tops of the index, middle and ring fingers as evidence. Don't think they'd do much for you if they go down, but they probably increase your BHP by half-a-pony.
Only complaints: After two years the velcro at the wrist fastening has begun to fray and separate from the glove. The gloves fit properly so it's not as if they'll fly off because I'm not able to secure the wrist strap, but it is annoying to not be able to do so. Same story with the speed strips, they've also begun to separate from the fingers.
All in all for 50 bones I don't think there's a better glove you can get.

Perfect fit and ventilation
I am a fan of Scorpion and these gloves do not dissapoint. The sizing chart is spot on and the gloves fit perfectly.
Other gloves tend to cut off circulation or are poorly made however, the Scorpion Klaw II uses quality leather, durable stitching, and elastic materials on the fingers and along the index finger.
These gloves are a must in warm weather. The fingers are perforated and allow for proper ventilation / cooling.
Another nice touch are the elastic portions on the cuff which keeps the glove from covering a wrist watch and stays snug to the wrist without cutting off circulation.

Great for your money and good in cool weather
I bought these gloves for more cooler weather, and they actually work really well in conditions around 50 F - 60 F. You can ride with this gloves in the high 40s but it wont be comfortable unless you get a linear.They move air fairly well to your fingers and knuckles which is nice. one thing about the gloves that bug me is that they seemed tight when I initially put them on but after a few weeks they did get loose on me and the leather in the hands is not as grippy as i though the would be. But over all really nice gloves for the price.

Gloves run small
Gloves run a bit small order a size up from what you normally wear.

Great bang for the buck
According to the size chart, I'm a medium. I ordered a small because I like my gloves snug. It was definitely snug and after more than 10 hours of riding it has a nice fit. At first, there was pressure on my knuckle which caused slight pain/uncomfortableness. Now broken in I don't have that issue.
Only drawback is that it's not touchscreen compatible. Forgot to check that part before purchasing this glove. However, for the price it's great. Also the button on the wrist strap is a great feature when the gloves are off. Almost lost one of it wasn't buttoned together.

I rather like these gloves. They offer decent comfort, a slick design and for the price -- I don't really think you can beat it.
I got the medium gloves and it fits great. There seems to be a little extra room in the fingers, but you forget about it after a little bit of riding.
I would definitely recommend these gloves to new riders or riders on a budget.

Very nice, reasonably priced gloves.
Nice quality. I usually wear size xl gloves, but these are a bit too big. They still fit, but there is extra space at end of thumb, and they aren't hard to get on at all. Material feels awesome and they look great.

Great Value, great fit.
I only came across these gloves in a shop. I tried them on and found the large fit me perfectly. I'm usually slightly too large for mediums and a bit loose for large. So finding gloves have always been an issue. These seems to have no issues. I didn't buy them then and there since I wanted to do some research. I have only had them a few days but have worn them everyday to and from work. I also wore them around the house, just to break them in faster. They look great without any glossy shine to them. I prefer the plain black color and it makes it easier to live with when they get scuffed. There were some reviews mentioning issues with the thumb and inability to maneuver towards the turn signals. I have had no such issue. I recommend these.
