I really like my Held Phantoms. Pricey, but great gloves.

You might look at Lee Parks Design. They might be Kangaroo, but they have the Outlast fabric inside and are comfortable in temps from 50f to 100f.

I own a pair of Fieldsheer Positano gloves which are kangaroo leather. I love them, though I don't think they make them anymore. I saw a pair or two on eBay recently. Nice gloves, and almost $100 less than the Helds, which are great, too.

+1 These are made of deerskin. Get the PCI -- Phase-Change fabric. They have the membrane micropores that close when cold to keep the heat in and expand when hot to keep them cool. I've worn these on street for 3+ years, FANTASTIC gloves, I've also worn them on track, but when to something with more padding for that application.

BTW I have about 10 pairs of MC gloves: MV Course, A-Stars, Held, BMW, FirstGear, etc. These are by far my favorite set.

+2 on Held gloves. $279 but worth every penny.

I use the Dainese full Metal Racer. I don't think they are kangaroo though...sorry.

They are of the highest quality leather; soft, supple, and good protection.

However, the inside lining is well.... non-existent. The inside is pretty coarse (suede-other side of leather). You get used to it but I will get Spidi's next time.
