Thank you for you insight. I am greatful to you all for sharing your knowledge and experience with me on this issue.
Nick, Thanks for the real world thumbs up on the mitts. I have been looking at these for awhile now.
Dale, That is briliant simplisity! If only slightly more breathable. They do have the quality of being very effective at keeping water off of hands, as well as providing a lot of trail laughs to lightening the mood on a dreary day.
Mark, I love your site and have gleaned much info from it over the years, thank you for that wonderful service you provide for us all. Thanks for the link, if gives me a new perspective and some new thought to ponder. I will look into powerstretch liner gloves as well.
Joe, Thanks for the heads up on Sealskinz. They are off of my radar now. The article on Andy's site was great. Thanks for pointing out the others to read thaere as well, I would have missed them.
Bob, Thanks for sharing your system. It is most helpful in developing my own.
Thank you all!
