Scorpion Cool Hand Mesh Gloves
Bang For The Buck!!!
I have been using this pair of gloves now for three years. They are the only pair I own. I am going to upgrade next spring as I was in an accident at 55mph and the only protection I had was these gloves. No helmet or protective jacket. So I planted these gloves and the back pack I was wearing at the time and my riding boots firmly on the pavement and slid off of the hwy on my back into a corn field.
That was a year ago, I used the same gloves one more summer, and they still look new.
After that accident I thought I should have gloves with more protection. These gloves did a lot more than I expected as I thought this could never happen to me. Yes Bang For The Buck!!!

Little tight, get what you pay for
I found these to be a bit small for my hand. They were also very uncomfortable for my little finger and thumb. I do have an amusingly short little finger so that finger is a little long for me specifically, but I've had that issue many times in the past. However, there's something about where my joint lines up that makes the movement slightly painful. which is not even noticeable until I've been riding for about an hour. The construction definitely leaves more to be desired. I wore them only a couple of times before they started to show signs of wear. As in the color (I got the Blue ones) started to rub off, and the little grip lines on the inside of the fingers just fell off. But, on the bright side, they were only $20, they are very breathable. They do exactly what I bought them for, which is a light glove to slap on to run to the store and back. Over all I would say it's a good, cheap glove. Get them but be aware they won't last too long

These are Keepers
I've only had a chance to use the gloves once. When I put them on they felt very comfortable. Flexed my hand a few times and didn't notice any tight spots. Fit, for me, was true to size (L). While riding, I forgot about them. I was running a few errands but there was no distractions with these gloves. It was in the nineties and the perforations kept the hands cool. Keepers for sure. Now, if I can keep my sons away from them, I'll have them for many more miles....

Can't beat the price!
These gloves do run small and are not the best gloves by far. However, for the price and ability to ride in hot weather with them on comfortably and still offering some protection, they are well worth it! Plus they look awesome with the bike!

Great Summer gloves
Good looking summer gloves with plenty of protection where it matters. Gloves still have excellent airflow even with the extra protection. They do seem a little small.

Nice mesh glove
I usually picked these gloves over my leathers time and time again for street riding because they are so comfortable. I never wreck with these, so I have no idea if they would hold up to a major skid, there is a plastic knuck guard which is better than nothing. I actually just bought another pair, because I did eventually get holes in pointer and index finger after 2-3 years of riding with these.
My only rant would be is that the fabric is too tight in the pinky, my pinky would go numb after a day of riding with these, and I have petite hands!

Bought a second pair!
I received these gloves when I purchased my bike. They actually survived a low size, but still look great! (some mesh on top of the fingers turned into an afro ...) My hand was uninjured!
I saw this on the CLOSEOUT, so I bought an extra in fear of not being able to find such a wonderful glove! I have also purchased the Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves for greater protection … still testing that one.
- The glove stays cool and is very comfortable.
- Protection wise they look like they wouldn’t do much. My hand was NOT injured in the low-side, so they must have done something! The knuckle protection is interesting on these gloves.
- Smart design in the way your fingers articulate (I believe Anthony even highlights that in the video)
- Fabric reinforcements in multiple spots
- Grip pads on the digits
- The strap closes easily
- Clip feature to keep them together
Can’t ask for more! A perfect glove for hot summer days!
- None! Of course, a full glove (track style) will probably provide superior protection
