Rain-Off waterproof overgloves – road tested

Many years ago, I owned a pair of waxed cotton overgloves and a pair of waxed cotton overboots. I also had the waxed cotton version of the Dri-Rider jacket, by the way. Showing my age here.

I really miss my overgloves and overboots. I could throw them on in heavy rain and keep my gloves and boots dry. Gloves take up to a week to dry out after heavy rain and boots can take a few days too.
