Strange... I have a lightweight waterproof, and a pair of thermal waterproof Sealskinz gloves and the only dampness I get in them is sweat... When they get stinky u can fill them up with water and usually none will even seep out... U sure they weren't Chinese knockoffs? ;-)

I tend to use wool hiking socks and low gators if it's off-road and wet...

Seal skins socks are good. Kept my feet warm in wet shoes for many hours over the weekend.

Just the Ground Effect Zig-Zags are a whole lot cheaper :shock: and they work very well. I wore them on the same cold and wet ride that Andy was on - the feet stayed mostly pretty warm and dry.
