    Quick question about gloves..

    I usually use a pair of jet pilot full finger gloves... These..

    Jetpilot Full Finger 1mm Gloves (Medium, Blue) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BYDPJU8..._cqaivb0PVE42Z

    They're nice, but when they get wet.. They become heavy and completely saturated for the whole day..

    Anyone have any suggestions on a nice pair of gloves that are pretty waterproof.. (Don't stay soaked the whole day, and dry rather quickly) ?

    I wear these in the summer. When I do get them wet, they dry very fast.

    I wear an older version of these in the winter. I rarely get them wet, but when I have they seem to dry pretty fast.

    I have the same Jet Pilot gloves and same thing would happen. I switched to Slippery gloves some years back and they dry out much better.

    how do the sizes run with slippery ? I have pretty long hands but theyre skinny.. i wear a medium with jet pilot but where they tighten around my wrist is pretty loose, id rather nice fitment around the wrist and a little snug on the fingers than a nice fitment on the fingers and loosey goose on the wrist, lol

    normally, i dont wear gloves but there are certain days that are a little chilly and windy that can really take the fun out of it.. plus its always nice to have a little extra grip when carving some sharp "S" turns in the marsh around here.

    I use 5mm wet suit gloves for riding in the cold. I would think a 2mm glove would be good. They never really get that soaked.

    Just bought these in red size medium for warmer days.

    Obviously haven't tried them yet to see how they dry. Colder days I wear 5mm wetsuit gloves.

    My Jet pilot's were XL...Some of the Slippery's have velcro wrist straps. I have XXL in Slippery and my finger tips have just a little extra room but nothing I notice and the glove fits snug all around my hand. Is there any place you can go to try on Slippery gloves before buying?
