Scorpion SG3 Gloves
Great Style & protection
Purchased white 1 size larger than normal as I do not like my fingertips all the way to the tips. Left hand was perfect from the start - right hand was stiff and took probably 10 rides to break in nicely. The gauntlet portion gives you plenty of adjustability to wrap around jacket sleeve. They're not cheap but do have many very nice features and look great.

The gloves fit great. it's very important to take measurementso of your hand to get a proper fit. I can see how the gloves would be very uncomfortable if you did not have the proper size. The pre-shape of the gloves helped ease the breaking period. I would recommend these gloves to anyone who wants great protection for a great price.

im a commuter, and ligthly used this gloves .the gloves only last me 2 months, and they completely started to fall apart, the stitching seems to be really bad and unreliable. Imagine in a case of a accident, this gloves wont hold up for nothing. Completely upset about this product, the zilla team gave me a good solution.

Much better than I thought
The Scorpion SG3 gloves are much better than I thought they would be. I was replacing an old pair of Alpinestars GP Plus gloves. They fit too tight, so I measured my palm, as instructed, but wanted a pair of gloves that fit my hands and my budget. Well, the Scorpion SG3's fit the bill perfectly. The measurements were spot on with the sizing guide, plus, they look great on top of it. Even better than the pictures. They flow a nice amount of air to keep your hands cool, yet, they are comfortable inside and don't bunch up in the palms like some gloves do. I currently use them on a sportbike, but I believe they would work on any type of bike that you chose to ride. The quality appears to be top notch and I didn't see any issues with any of the stitching on these gloves. I would highly recommend them.

I think this is the best glove sub $200. If you have smaller wrists the Velcro gauntlet will close, but for maximum closure I had my local seamstress add a patch of Velcro so that the end of the strap was not just flapping around. A very minor alteration that cost $10 and does not alter the look of the glove in any way. Yes, it also has kangaroo leather on the palm and Kevlar stiching.

Great glove for the price point
I bought these gloves fall of last year and have ridden with them since then. I've played piano most of my life and wanted to get the most protection I could, but without spending $300 or more on other brands. The gloves took a bit to break in, but loosened up after about a month or so. They breathe decently, but still make my hands sweat a bit in warmer weather. The straps and velcro are very secure, which is confidence inspiring. My only complaint would be the somewhat unequal length of the fingers. I have small hands, but felt like some fingers had more material than others (thumb and pinky). Overall, I'm very satisfied and feel much more protected than with my old shorty gloves. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a gauntlet glove with more features, but not wanting to break the bank.

Good construction, sizing is weird.
Had these gloves for a number of months now. The fit is the first thing I noticed - thumb, index, and pinky fingers are all too long. I've figured out a way to jury rig the Velcro to pull the fingers as tight as possible so I'm not working with the finger equivalent of clown shoes, but it's still not good. Because of the exta material, I cannot use my fingers for anything except the thumb controls on the handlebars. The rest of the glove fits great, which is why the finger thing is so frustrating.
The construction of the gloves is great- no lazy stitching, and the materials are high quality. I have not gone down in these gloves, so I cannot fully attest to the safety, but the palm skids seem durable, and do not get in the way of normal operation
I would appreciate better sizing options for riders with big hands but shorter fingers, I guess, but all in all these gloves are worth buying.

I bought these gloves about six months ago and have been wearing them everyday, ever since.
Firstly, the fit is true to what's stated. I bought an XL coming from an Alpinestars glove of the same size. That was a mistake. Although they do work for me, they are just slightly too big. I will be buying them again in a size L. Additionally, the leather will indeed work itself in and slightly loosen.
Feature-wise, these gloves can't go wrong. The gauntlet feels durable and secures well to my wrist. An additional velcro strap secures above the gauntlet, just below the meat of my hand. There are several plastic sliders on the palm which add to my confidence in these gloves' safety. My one complaint regarding features would be the knuckle-box. I was expecting something harder (along the lines of carbon fiber). What I got instead was this floppy plastic material which bends and contorts easily. Of course, I'm sure they'd provide good protection in a crash. And for the price I can't really complain.
Lastly, these gloves are durable and are of quality. Although I haven't gone down in them, they have lasted months of non-stop twisty road riding, commuting, and general use. I have even washed them several times and have had no issues of any kind. The gloves are completely together with no tearing or thread loosening.
I bought these gloves because I wanted a race-type gauntlet which would be leather, of good quality, and at a reasonable price-point. Frankly, $300+ for gloves is ridiculous considering that's what many pants and jackets go for. I just couldn't justify spending that much money. The SG3 however, is a good buy! If your expectations mirror mine, you won't be disappointed.
