My Verdict After Testing the Scorpion EXO Gripster Women’s Gloves

Overall, if you’re looking for reasonably priced leather gloves (1) for street riding with a retro look, the Scorpion EXO Gripsters are a great option.

While they don’t provide premium protection features, the combination of abrasion-resistant leather, foam armor, and impact panels offer good value at this price point.

Just don’t expect these gloves to have robust insulation for cold-weather riding or waterproof membranes for excessive moisture.

For all-around street use in dry conditions, though, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and comfort. The perforations do help keep hands cool in warmer temps as well.

While I’ll still use my high-end track motorcycle gloves for performance riding, the Gripsters earned a spot in my collection as a stylish, affordable pair of leather street gloves.

So, if you ride a cruiser or standard motorcycle and want basic protection without breaking the bank, take a look at the Scorpion EXO Gripster Women’s gloves!
