Scorpion SGS Gloves
Loaded with features but quality is inconsistent.
The pictures attach is the condition I received my copy of SGS. Leather is really soft and seems really comfortable, the knuckles is nothing special, the stitching is kevlar but if sewing is cr@p as this even superman's hair will be of no good. I don't think I will use this glove above 98F.
I should have went for A* GPX leather (my original plan). A* sizing suits my hands more, thou I ordered the correct size (base on the length of my fingers) SGS is loose for my oddly large bony hands. Unfortunately, I can't return this as I reside outside US that'll cost me a lot on shipment.
I wish Revzilla checks the quality of the items first before they send it over.

Excellent gloves, a little snug at first.
These are outstanding gloves for the money. I wear them 5 days/week on my commute to and from work on a DR650 Suzuki Dual Sport in Florida. Wind, rain, heat, all of it. They're great. My biggest concern when ordering them was air flow during the summer... but even behind BarkBusters with wind shields, they get perfectly adequate flow on the highway. They're not as ventilated as a mesh glove, but for a fully-armored leather glove, they do better than I expected.
It would be hard to describe all the great features you get in these gloves, but the RevZilla video does a pretty good job of it. They do run a little tight as folks have said, but you should still order the size you normally wear, I would say. They stretch a little over time, BUT NOT A LOT. Still, I would not change them for something with a sloppier fit. I am sure a good snug fit was a part of their design.
I like them a lot and, should I need to replace them, I will shop this very glove first.

Great gloves for the money!
My last pair of gloves was destroyed in an accident, and then the replacement pair (from another manufacturer) had some problems. I took a chance and decided to try out the Scorpion gloves after having great luck with their helmets, and after reading the reviews. I couldn't be happier. The gloves fit great, the ventilation is very good, and the kangaroo leather palms are excellent. I like the technical features of these gloves........they are fantastic considering the affordable price point. I think the bang for the buck on these gloves is virtually unmatched by the current offerings in the industry.

Great glove, but. . . .
I bought this glove as an order replacement to another glove that was constructed of some stretching neoprene material around the wrist area, which began to rip on one wrist where the glove would be pulled at to get it on snugly (at around a month).
I specifically chose this glove because there is not stretching thin material as such, just all leather. However, at around two months with this glove, SURPRISINGLY, this glove began to separate on the left index finger where the stitching is. This was really surprising, as I do not do any aggressive, off-road riding, just everyday commuting to work. Now, I guess I could have contacted RevZilla again, as with the other gloves, and proceeded to get a new pair, but I didn't. I thought this was more of an exception versus the other glove which was constructed thinly in the wrist area. So what did I do? I simply and quickly restitched the area back with a needle and thread and it has been perfect every since--stronger than before.
I like the all cowhide/goatskin gloves. Besides this issue--which is why I didn't give it perfect ratings--this is a very good glove. The durability and protection despite my bump. Although I had this issue, I would recommend it and purchase it again, because as I said, I thought this was more of a manufacturer's oddity versus an issue the glove is prone to have (as with the last one).

If you want GREAT GLOVES then look into these!
I was looking for some short aggressive gloves with the best protection out there. Who wants to go down and then end up with a broken hand or fingers? Not me. There are thousands of gloves out there but these can not be beat for the price. Mid-level pricing with pro-level protection is exactly what I was looking for. That is what these glove are. I recommend these to those who want the most bang for the buck.

Nice fit and very comfortable
I'm medium on most gloves so I order the medium in black. It fits perfectly. The product is very nice and comfy. The airflow is not so good buy it's because it's a partly leather gloves. In fact I purchase it for this matter use it between 10 and 25 celsius.
I have no quality problem so far. I have it only for a month so we'll see.
The material seems to be very good quality for the buck.

Feature packed glove at a great price
Love this glove, bought them for the colder months (fall) because they don't have a lot of mesh/air flow...so far so good. Only complaint I have is that I'm getting a cramp in my clutch hand, but its not too bad and I expect it'll go away once the gloves break-in.

For a glove that's sub $100 you can't go wrong with this. A little tight at first but loosens up after a few hours of riding. Protection is great at that price point. Nice gloves.
