Seemingly a " well no s&*#" idea actually put into practice. Mountain Hardwear, which in my experience makes fantastic gear, has come up with a new fabric for use on their gloves. This fabric prevents any water from entering any level of the glove fabric, allowing hands to breathe easier and stay less clammy feeling. It seems like this is not a new idea and gloves already have had a fabric that does not allow water to penetrate any layer let alone the waterproof insert, but come to think about it... my last gloves have all been soggy by the end of the day and my hands weren't wet... but were damp from perspiration. Something to look into i guess.
