Rain Gear - Gloves

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I need some rain gloves that keep water out of my rain jacket. Anyone have a recommended brand or style? Amazon links especially useful.

TIA,
T

Unless you rock ape hanger bars on your sled, its the jacket that keeps the water out of your gloves... ...love Amazon, really do, but this one has LBS written all over it. FWIW.

Only with a rain Cape draped over them have I found dry hands..

only with seamless rubber gloves do your hands have any chance of being dry, But
then you sweat inside of them..

For the cold, I use a pair of neoprene gloves I picked up at Walmart. They are fleece lined and do a good job at keeping my hands warm so long as it's not to cold. I wouldn't chance them below 40F or so. They keep the water out but are no where near breathable. As Leisesturn stated, it's my jacket that keeps water out of the cuffs. These gloves have a somewhat longer cuff, so I put my gloves on prior to my jacket and I'm good to go.

From the rain or from sweat? The longest ride I've done in the rain was probably about 2.5 hours. My hands were damp (but warm) from what I have to believe was sweat and not rain.

Also, what sort of cuffs does your jacket have? Snug the jacket cuffs down over the gloves so there's good overlap to stay dry. Works well unless the rain is warm, over mid-40s I keep my cuffs open for ventilation.

I agree that jacket cuffs that cinch down should keep the rain out. A gauntlet style rain shell might do the trick for you.

These are non insulated, so you'd use them with other gloves, but it gives the flexibility to wear warmer or lighter gloves.

sewn seams leak .. those are made for snow, which being a solid
are not going to seek out every needle hole.

had a sewn shell + liner sort of thing , advantage was they were separate ,
so you can take the liner out and dry it. which it needed before long..

I use a pair of Gore Bike wear Windstopper gloves - they are water resistant, but not water proof (I am sure you could find a Gore-tex pair for that). I got mine at a LBS in Portland, OR while visiting there (figured they know rain in Portland). With our dry, dry winter in CA I haven't gotten to test them in heavy rain yet.

I recently acquired some Pearl Izumi Pro Barrier Wxb gloves. They're not cheap (thoughcheaper online) but have been great so far. Combined with a merino wool liner, they're warm, mostly waterproof, and comfortable. I haven't ridden in the rain for very long on them yet, but I did use them while cross-country skiing in a light drizzle, and my hands were just a bit damp after ~ 3 hours (which might have been from sweat), which I did not feel at all. I've biked in them for perhaps 15 minutes in light drizzle, and they were only wet on the outside.

I've used gore windstopper gloves before, they are great gloves since they've kept my hands warm even when wet, but they aren't water proof.

Up to last winter I used a pair of OR *outdoor research* over mittens. They were awesome and I had them for over 20 years. But, they can be pricey, I looked at a similiar pair of mittens last that were $70.
