    Hi Cheryl & Leslie,

    I’ve been meaning to ask what gloves do you wear in the rain? Do you wear rain gear on your feet? If so, what brand? BTY, my partner and I bought the yellow Wolfman Expedition bags (which I learned about them via your blog) and we love them. Thank you for keeping us informed about all the kool motorcycle gear out there! ~ M

      We wear KLIM powerxross gloves for cool to mild weather. Cold weather we wear Gerbings heated gloves and we also use the KLIM Adventure gloves and KLIM Dakar for really hot. When raining though I tend to wear the powerxross gloves the most. Not a huge amount of knuckle protection and you might think your hands are getting wet but they are not…they may sweat a bit. We wear Alpinestars Scout boots.

      No need for gators on your feet. They are 100% waterproof. We wore them this entire trip and although a little warm when it got over 100 F they were great. Just have to wear a wicking sock when you use boots like the Scouts in HOT weather.

      Glad we could help with your dry bag. We have them with us right now. It’s our last day of our little trip to KLIM. Only a few hours away from home.

        Thank you for the quick response! I appreciate you taking the time during your vacation time to answer my question about the gear. We’re got
        the Gerbings jacket/gloves and love it. I’ll look into the other gear you mentioned above. I hope you both have a safe trip home. Thanks again!
