The Showers Pass gloves are good quality, keep water out and breath well. So they work well withing the limits of the possible. 30sF and rainy 12 mile commutes they are quite good. 3 hour ride in the same with the gloves coming off to get to food and tools, not to well. For the latter, I wear deerskin "chopper mitts" and liner mittens. Those work far better once everything is wet. (Look for XXL you want huge to get your normal hand positions if you are riding dropped HBs.)
