What specific Nikwax products are you using on your gloves?

Anyone have follow up on the dragon claw's performance in wet snow or other comments.  Just ordered a pair in an XL.  And for others who have a couple different pairs of outdry gloves, has the water resistance been the same?  The material on the dragon claw appears like it would wet out faster than some other materials and become hard to put on and take off on a sloppy snow day.

I have the Dragon Claw for short gauntlet and Typhon for long gauntlet.  Both are OutDry.  I've never had a problem with either of them.  Snow has been sloppy here the East here for the past few weeks for the most part, and never wetted out.  My hands got sweaty in the Typhon on a mild day but never clammy, and the gloves seemed to breathe just fine.

 

FYI, I've put Hestra balm on both sets of gloves though, on the leather parts.

I finally got to test Medusa mittens this past weekend. Went to Stowe and on Sunday morning had to ski though -4F temperature plus windchill in these mitts. I felt comfortable enough to do around 2 hours of skiing before I heading to a lodge and that was because my feet were getting really cold in ski boots and not because of the hands freezing. That said, I can't say hands were really warm either - it kind of felt being on an edge, a few more degrees lower and I think original Medusa liners would probably be not enough. Further testing needed at lower temperatures, though I kind of hope I won't have to do it:)

 

All in all, I'm really satisfied with these mitts. They are definitely an improvement over then Swany gloves I used at similar temperatures earlier this year in Tremblant (not to say that Swany's are bad, simply saying that at such temperatures mitts are probably a better choice then any kind of glove).

 

Cheers!

I lent them to a beginner with sweaty hands who spent a lot of time with his hands in the snow. They did seem to get quite waterlogged. I applied a liberal amount of Nikwax glove proof. We'll see how it does. For most conditions I'm still wearing my BD gloves with a removable liner. THey get a bit wet by the end of the day but are always dry by the next, which can't be said for most gloves.
