    Question Over glove recommendation ?

    Does anyone have any recommendation on waterproof over gloves that can be used in addition to my regular gloves? I'm still wearing summer riding gloves here in sunny Georgia but they aren't much good in a rainstorm...
    I had a great pair of nylon-type overmitts back home many years ago but can't remember the brand name... I've seen "lobster style' mitts advertised by Aerostich and was wondering if anyone had tried them?
    Cheers,
    Ian

    The Stich ones work great. I carry them on tours as a back up in case my H20 proof gloves fail......that has happened to me.

    Agree! Those 'stich lobster claw things are great. Lightweight and they squeeze into the smallest niche in your tank bag, and they really are waterproof.

    Got them and yes they are good for all day riding in a downpour. However what I also do a couple of times a season is spray waterproofing onto my two pair of riding gloves. When a light rain comes down, there is no need for me to stop and make the switch to the lobster gloves. Some might argue that my hands might not be able to breath with that coating on the gloves, but I've not notice a problem. As well, if my memory (no longer my best friend ) is correct, the instructions for the "lobster gloves" recommended waterproofing the gloves before using them.

    I believe those are the triple digit rain gloves. I have them and really like them except for one thing...probably not the glove so much. But I will get water running down the underside of my riding suit arms and past the drawstring of the gauntlet. I've considered putting the gauntlet on the inside of my 'stich riding suit, but somehow that doesn't seem right.

    Similar to the "inside or outside the jacket sleeve" discussion that we have periodically concerning regular gloves. Inside the sleeve results in water being pushed up the jacket sleeve when you ride, outside the sleeve lets water run down the sleeve into the glove when you stop. You pays your money and you takes your chances. I personally am an outside-the-sleeve kinda guy.
