Default Gloves that stay DRY!

Why can I buy that actually keeps moisture OUT?
I always spray all my wear, boots and gloves with waterproof spray.
It seems to work on everything but the gloves because they have so many seams. No matter how much I use, they are always half soaked at the end of the day.

Does anything actually work?

I use my hestra with the protection juice they give you. They have wool liners which help too.

My Dakine mitts keep me dry from open to close.

Could your gloves be wetting from inside out?

I have a couple pairs that are too warm and my hands sweat soaking the inside.

I was almost gonna buy a can of spray shit for $15 bucks, I googled the product while I was in the store to see if it was any good?

Turns out they're pretty much all shit.

But I stumbled upon a write up of some dude who mixed clear 100% outdoor silicon caulk, with mineral spirits.

Then painted on the mixture & let it dry.

It works. 100% waterproof.
0% Breathable, can't have em both.

I've only done 1 pair of shitty old gloves, but I've got shitty old jackets to try it out on too.

For the price, ya can't beat it.

Buddy started by mixing it in a bucket by hand
Someone wrote in, put it in a 2 liter bottle & shake it.

Been using candygrind gloves and mitts for a few years now, hands stay warm and dry even in the rain and spring slush. Both are leather I just tend to stick some leather balm on them once in a while.
