Waterproof gloves: do they exist?
I wear Mystic 2mm kitesurf gloves with Amara (synthetic waterproof leather) palms and have found them to be better than the various mtb gloves I have tried over the years. Dual use too as I take them out kitesurfing as well!
More info please – have you tried the glacier glove aswell?Posted 4 years ago
What’s the fit like? Big/small?globaltiMember
*Cough* I’ll probably get caned for this but these are waterproof and I’m selling them:
(As waterproof as gloves can be, that’s to say. I got two pairs and the pair I’m using really do keep water out, even when you hold them under a tap.)Posted 4 years agoDales_riderMember

The only ones I’ve found that come close are Endura Deluge gloves. Tried loads of gloves and these are now my default winter riding ones. So far so good.Posted 4 years ago
Agree with that, I’ve tried Altura, Sealskinz Gore to nam a few and the Endura Deluge are by far the best.andylcMember
If you google Mystic 2mm smooth wetsuit gloves you’ll find them. Palm has good grip (although no padding). The palm is not actually waterproof which means they can actually breathe, I’ve tried full neoprene gloves and you end up really sweaty. Strictly speaking not what the OP was after though…Posted 4 years agoshedbrewedMember
Back in the old days of motorcycling instructing (bear with me) I used to be out for 8-13hrs a day in whatever the weather.
The very best winter/wet weather glove I ended up with was a thin leather glove on the outside (substitute a normal MTB glove) then a pair of the plastic diesel gloves from a petrol station (free) then a pair of silk or fleece (if it was really cold) gloves inside.
The silk or fleece gloves stayed on your hands and slipped easily in and out of the outer/plastic gloves. They also stayed completely dry.
Not glamourous but oh so worth it to have dry hands.
FWIW I also bought a pair of the Pearl Izumi gloves when on offer and they’re good but not great.Posted 4 years agoyinboyslowMember
Gloves are complicate things to stitch never mind seam seal. Most realistic manufacturers acknowledge this and accept a higher level of faulty produce than on jackets. There is alway a grey big hole in them where you put your hands too!Posted 4 years ago
Breathtability one one half will be zero as you are wrapping your hand around a solid thing, oh and that’s the bit of your hand that sweats.
Sealskins for me are great for walking the dog, useless for commuting or trail riding.
I’d go for something warmer instead.
