Waterproof gloves: Inside or Outside

Hey guys,
I need some other rider opinions.
When it's raining do you wear waterproof gloves inside or outside the jacket cuffs.
For me it's outside when it's dry, inside when it's raining.
My buddy says I'm in the minority and very few if any other people wear the gloves inside.
Cheers!

In the rain, absolutely. Otherwise, the rain just runs down your sleeve into the glove.

Your buddy's familiar with how a funnel works, right?

It depends on the angle that my forearms are at when I'm holding the bars. On my GSX-R, my forearms are angled down, so I put the gloves inside the sleeves, if I can. On my GS, my forearms are just about parallel to the ground, so I leave the gloves outside the sleeves.

^ This right here -- my street bike has my hands lower than my elbow . . . . . . my Dual Sport has em just about level, if not a skosh high . . . .

Depends on whether your glove has a gaiter or not.

My gloves have an external gaiter that you can cinch on the outside of the jacket. So whether they are inside or out, it really makes no difference as water doesn't make it's way in as long as it is cinched down. It uses an elastic band with a sliding lock, strung through the outer edge of the cuff. Even in Houston rain, I haven't had any leaks yet.

There are some gloves that have an internal gaiter, like the Dainese Jerico, you can just tuck the goretex gaiter inside the jacket, and then roll the glove over the sleeve. So technically, the glove is both inside and outside your sleeve.

If you have a glove that doesn't know rain exists (but is inexplicably waterproof), and isn't designed with a cuff that does "something" about the weather, then tucking them inside your jacket when it rains is your best bet. However, I would say that you run just as much risk of the rain blowing into your sleeve, as you would the rain rolling into your glove. So it all really depends on how your sleeve fits around your gloves vs how your gloves fit around your sleeve.

Depends for me as well.

Air flow patterns being foremost. If air is going to blow the rain right up under my sleeve, the glove goes to the outside.

Gravity being second. If air doesn't matter, which ever way will have the water dripping out and not in. Ape hangers, glove out. Clip-ons, glove in.

And then there is the matter of gauntlet length, elastics, closures, etc.

But usually, when riding, it's glove out.

care for a 3rd answer?

both. I wear the glove over the jacket, but under the 100% waterproof raincoat which I wear over the jacket and gloves.
To me this is the only solution that works.

And when rain is over, I have a dry jacket in which I dont freeze to death because of evaporation (assuming below 80F temperatures).

The only annoyance, the best raincoat have an elastic band (not pointless velcro) to close the sleeve, not a zipper like jackets. It is kind a complicated to put the long gloves in between those 2, especially the 2nd sleeve. (because you cant put the gloves before the raincoat since it is even harder to zip up the rain coat with gloves...

So most people say 'both' or 'depends on', that's definitely not never put them inside.
I'm gonna call that 1-0 to me.
Thanks for the advice everyone.

Maybe you should get some better-looking gloves?
