I haven't used them, but I've heard good things about the Aerostich Triple Digit Rain Covers

I bought a pair of neoprene gloves used by fisherman at a local sporting goods place. They are waterproof and provide warmth. Keep them with the rain gear and use them only if it is raining hard enough to put the gear on.

I found one of the best pair of waterproof (totally) gloves at an Academy store - in the snowmobile aisle. No brand name - slightly padded on the upper wrist area, and great wind break feature. Not a lot of crash protection and may shred in a falldown - dunno, and don't wanna find out.

Though I've not tried them personally, I've heard recommendations for these:
Despite the mesh outer layer, they have a waterproof breathable membrane inner layer. They do lack any knuckle padding unfortunately, but otherwise a very lightweight waterproof glove.

I have these and they work well. The neoprene gloves make your hands clammy since your perspiration has no where to go.

Re: Water proof glove recommendation needed

I have a good pair of water proof gloves, but they are really meant for cold weather riding. They also get clammy if I use in hot weather.

Dane have some nice offerings.
Also Revit, but beware of any glove with the fake chamois/nubuck on the fingers- it will get ripped to shreds by Velcro-style fasteners in no time.

Re: Water proof glove recommendation needed

Get some theoretically waterproof gloves that you like.. THEN...

Treat them with Scotchguard....Now they're really waterproof...
