How to prevent water from seeping into sleeves

I've ridden my 2012 R1200GSA down south and last time it rained on the way down (From Meeeeechigan). I was wearing my First Gear Jacket with Frogg Toggs over. I had a pair of Gore-Tec gloves with velcro gauntlet over the top of the Frogg Togg sleeve. Anyone have any pearls of wisdom to eliminate or lessen the water getting into my jacket sleeves?

Should the gloves be secured Under the Frogg Togg? Tricks Tips appreciated.
Seepage happens!!!???

Good first post Greg, wrong forum, but still a good question.

Yes, try getting gloves that have a long portion of gauntlet that will allow you to tuck the jacket sleeve into (UNDER) and then fasten down securely.

actually, the glove needs to be UNDER the jacket, unless your going to ride about 200 mph, water WILL run down your arms and into your gloves, 30 years of riding experience has brought me to this conclusion! I wear darien jackets, and the sleeves open up enough to allow the gauntlet to be easily tucked inside the sleeve. putting your gloves on before your jacket will also work.

I will have to give this a try. I've always put the gloves on the outside (over) the jacket sleeve. Perhaps I've been doing it wrong all this time. This certainly a possibility because I usually do everything wrong all the time, constantly.

Sorry, getting familiar with the nomenclature on Adventure Rider.... I wear gloves on my Day Trippin'ings so I thought I'd post on this forum. Appreciate the help....

I'll give this a try. I always guess wrong!! Gauntlet on the outside. Never thought to try on the inside. Riding from Michigan to Deals Gap this Saturday and rain is expected (not wanted!!), so I'll give the gauntlet on the inside a try....

Try one of each and see which glove fills up faster. The imperical way.

Gauntlet gloves under the rain gear is what I've always done and it works marvelously. Of course however, if your gloves aren't waterproof it's a moot point, but if you're expecting to ride in rain get some decent Gortex-lined gloves that reach down past your wrist, then ride with them inside the gear. Mine are usually worn over my jacket but under the rain gear.

HTH!

As you sit on the bike, hands on grips, if your elbows are lower than hands then gloves over the jacket cuffs. Water runs down hill. If elbows are higher than hands then gloves inside the cuffs. If hands and elbows are level, hope the wind will blow water towards elbows and glove go over cuffs. It's pretty much the same as shingles on your roof.

I like the "empirical investigation method suggested", particularly if elbows and hands are level.

All this said, water will wick into the glove lining pretty much guaranteed.
