(in 40+ years of riding, how often have I heard that claim?) but in a clever pocket sewn into the gauntlet is a thin, rubberized, nylon "over glove", which is actually waterproof. It's sewn in & folds flat, so you never know it's there, but when needed, it's there, not back on the shelf in the garage. Nuttin worse than hands that are wet and cold.
+1 on Winter Elites. Adding liner gloves allow even colder temps.
