I cover the front brake and clutch levers with two fingers when I ride. Always. I rode with the Triple Digit overgloves just to try them out and found out they worked beautifully. 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.
