I posted this on a thread about rain gear where an added question about keeping hands/gloves dry came up. It ocurred to me this needs to go into recommended products too.

I have made a purchase I'll recommend for a backwards reason.

I bought really impressively good heavy gauntlet gloves for $15 ( actually were on sale for $11!! ) from leatherup.com. Turns out they are my warmest gloves, but by far the best part is that almost as an aside, they had zip closed pockets on the gauntlet with thin poly coated nylon mittens stashed away for rain covers. Genius. Those thin rain cover mittens are well worth the $15 all by themselves, they make any pair of gloves twice as warm, and as emergency rain gear they fold so thin and flat you could pretty nearly keep them in your wallet. Somebody should make them available all by themselves, they're a real keeper.

Good find.
I didnt know if I should start another thread or use yours for rain related products. My buddy is a free diving fisherman and uses this stuff in his dive mask. I tried it one foggy day on my motorcycle visor and it works great is under 5 bucks and the bottle will last for many applications. Here is a link.

I just use a coat of mink oil followed by a coat of wet proof on all my leathers including my gauntlets and have no problems. I live in the Puget Sound area and ride whenever irregaurdless of the weather. Sometimes if the downpour is as excessive as my speed, I get a little leakage thru my fly.
