    Anyone use Sealskinz gloves?

    Wondering if they really are waterproof, and as importantly, windproof. A local dealer has the socks, he'll order the gloves if I'm interested.

    Thanks,

    Yep, they're great. The socks worked for about 3 ride though and then were no longer waterproof for some reason.

    They are waterproof and windproof. I didn't like them because my hands were soaked inside the gloves. I will stick with wool gloves and synthetic liners.

    Hate the socks

    I've used the socks, and didn't like them, for the reasons mentioned. They MAY have kept some water out, but the water they kept in (ie swearr) made them worthless. They are a pain to wash too, if you don't remember to turn them inside out, they'll never dry.
