Gloves filling with water

Water runs down my arms and into my gloves.


Any quick fixes other than gloves on the inside of my jacket?

Water running down arms

How's it doing that mate?   I'd have thought stopping water getting in your jacket and running down your arms is a more serious problem that it ending up in your gloves!

I've had sodden gloves before (which isn't nice at all), but haven't had the jacket arms filling up with water.   Are you saying it's soaked through?  Have you tried water-repellent, some suitable wax/oil treatment?

I would use a jacket with adjustable cuffs (velcro) fitted over your gloves.Obviously the gloves should have narrow sleeves.

He's not talking about water going from his gloves up into the arms of his jacket,  he's complaining about the water running down his arms ending up in his gloves!  :lol:

leaky seams

My gloves have a really wide opening so for over my sleeves. the jacket is tucked inside the gloves in effect so water is running down the outside of the jacket and ending up inside the gloves.


BUT... my jacket has started leaking at the stitching on the inside of my left arm!

How do I fix leaky seams?!
