You are right, GTX XCR whatever, my gloves do get soaked in our PNW rain. Never froze in them, but I do run hot.

I was also thinking that at some point I'll be using the plastic guards in another shell
It's plastic....some broke and I took the others out (i never liked those spikes). the G-tex holds...but the tip of the fingers and the top, where the rubber meets other fabric, let water in.
They're good if it's a cold crisp day...but if it starts warming up or it's wet snow...not good. I do feel I can plow trough branches with them thou..they are hella tough.
