How can you tell the waterproof rating on gloves?

I was going to get some gloves and the rating was 5000mm and someone said that might last well as far as keeping my hands dry, But all the gloves I find dont even give this rating except a few.

What should you look for in gloves?

PS: I dont want the big bulky gloves some where in between. My hands rarely get cold anyways, But gettin wet is one thing

I was not aware they made gloves either. What should you look for in gloves? Can anyone shed light?

look for gloves with goretex lining. also check to see how durable the palms and fingers are because lower quality gloves tend to rip and tear around those areas from carrying the board or doing grabs. i've found Dakine gloves to be the most comfortable and dry.

Thanks, I did run with Dakine last year but they tore at the seems. Looks like every person has there own experiences with companies. I see what I can find with GORETEX
