When I was breaching a squall line in Oklahoma, my inner gloves didn't get wet at all and I especially appreciated the overglove's long gauntlet, which cinches with a lockable drawstring. They kept my hands warm and I was able to keep my lightweight gloves on underneath. My hands didn't feel clammy either, since the Gore-Tex allows sweat vapors to evaporate. A hook-and-loop wrist cinch kept them from sliding around like sleeping bags, and my hands felt in secure contact with the levers. Changing throttle position feels a little weird since the glove moves over your inner glove. Gotta say though, I'm a believer.
