RudyGarmischAs a senior WA skier, best solution I've found without breaking the bank is a set of shell gloves with removable liners. Ski in the shells without liners until they get wet or sweaty and cold, then throw in the liners and enjoy non saturated hands for another few hours.
I bought a set of Hestra leather mitts and even treating them with excessive amounts of balm and wax, they still get soaked on a pow day when its 32 and snowing wet pow. I'm going back to gore and liners I guess.
californiagrownI have cheap ass full leather kinco style gloves that i saturate with and bake in this stuff and have never had an issue with the wet snow in either CA or WA. Im talking about fucking saturating every little nook and cranny once or twice a year, throwing em in a warm oven just until the wax liquifies and soaks in and then rubbing it in some more. They used to be bright green but because of all the wax they are borderline black. On super warm wet days where my hands sweat, i use the old latex exam glove liner trick and it works beautifully.
Different strokes for different folks.
RudyGarmischThe latex glove method just sounds like a bad time. Too much time in the lab and at the factory with those on and I know what overexposure does to your hands.
a_pla5tic_bagSomebody try using antiperspirant spray or rub on stick on your hands. There's no reason it shouldn't work on the pores there. Granted there's a lot more of them but I've used antiperspirant spray on my feet with some success, I just have to figure out the best way to do it.
