Scorpion XDR Recon Gloves

Brown santa dropped them off Monday...

I wear a size Medium in Teknic shorty gloves, so I ordered these in the same size. They fit great without the fleece liner... a bit snig with the liner installed.

Paid $86 from motorcyclesuperstore.

Wore them for an hour the other night at freeway speeds. The very tips of my fingers were cold, otherwise my hands stayed warm.

Great gloves... for the price they'd better be :001_smile:

The removable liner is a nice touch, and it fits well in the gove and stays put. They are a bit 'thick' feeling but I think I just need to get used to wearing insulated gloves.

Armor is nice, quality seems top notch for textile type gloves... IE they don't look like wal-mart snow gloves.

Only complaint is the gauntlet opening being a bit small. I can fit them over the cuff of my jacket with some pulling and cursing. Once on there are 3 different velcro straps to cynch them down with. One close to the palm, one around the cuff, and a large square of velcro right at the opening that really doesn't seem needed.

Overall I would recommend these to someone looking for insulated gloves that have a 'sport' look and feel.

Will update as I wear them more.
