The only thing the med gloves do is block out the wind; no wind on your skin = a bit warmer hands, however once you get down into 5c or lower you'll be putting your gloves on the sides of your engine case cover at stop lights lol. Give them a try :)

Never been a fan of the Scorpion gear, but everything else looks good

As others have stated here, you can do better for the boots, gloves and especially the helmet. That helmet is one of Scorpions' worst helmets. I'd recommend the Exo-750 over that. The 1000 is very heavy and cumbersome. Plus, they're more geared towards a more upright riding style, so they say. Bell has some very good value with helmets. I'm a huge Dainese nut but can't really get behind their gloves. They are very overpriced and fall apart easily. I find that Alpinestars also tend to fall apart easily. I had a cheap pair of Teknic gloves and they did well. I now have Knox Handroids; amazing gloves. For boots, I had all three major brands but the Dainese TRQ pro out was the best one. You gotta think LATERAL ANKLE STABILITY and the Fusion, Vertigo or SMX Plus do not have much to speak of.

i would have been all over this if it was size Med. i've always thought the old gp pro white/black scheme doesnt go too well with all black gppro jacket.
