does anyone else use sealskinz waterproof gloves and socks for wet weather situations? i just looked at the local forcast which calls for rain for the next 10 days and just couldn't resist. i like riding in the rain, but i have to admit that wet hands and feet (especially hands) can be really aggravating and dangerous. the hands get so cold that they stiffen up and it's harder to brake on descents.

has this solved anyone else's rain problems?

Having been introduced to them through ww-kayaking, I use Sealskinz as booties these days. Custom cut the sole and voila! - finest bootie ever made. As for riding in the rain, some mountain biking or slush/snow rides haven't stopped the 'skinz - as a sock or bootie, for that matter. Not cheap, but good stuff!
