I' am in the planning stages for my Alaska trip next year, getting my "need/want" list together. I have never owned waterproof gloves after all these years of riding. I have grip warmers. I've ridden tons in the rain, but always in decent temps. I've trolled the forums and really haven't found much other than a lot of gloves when wet, the liners get pulled out and are a "PITA". Any experience would be appreciated. Going in June , hopefully. It's going to be a "destination" ride vs leisurely site seeing ride. A leisurely ride will come later in life. I could write a book on why. It will be 17-18 days. I live in central Mn. Any body that wants to hop on let me know.
