Hey

Is there any gloves like 661 or raceface that are waterproof, but wont make your hands sweat?

I know prob not, but worth a ask

Thanks so much

    I've got some Sealskins gloves - great for winter but too sweaty for summer. I would recommend them for cold weather use - I've not been too hot in them when the weathers miserable. Saying that, I tend to stick with standard gloves unless it is 'proper' cold wet rain...

    I think you'll struggle to find ones that aren't going to be warm as waterproof gloves seem to be generally designed for winter riding...

    Gore Windstopper gloves are good if you want something showerproof (not proper waterproof mind you) and breathable, they are made from stretched Gore-Tex.

    Nikwax have products that will waterproof almost any clothing you're wearing.

    Might be worth buying some gloves that do the job and having a bash at waterproofing them.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
