Tuck-in or Wear-Over?
You are riding along down the highway in the rain, wearing Triple Digit Raincovers. The drawcord around the end of the gauntlet is drawn up tight. Everything is working perfectly, your hands and gloves are dry even though it’s coming down in buckets. Then you must come to a stop at the end of an off ramp, and there’s a stoplight. Red. You take your hands off the bars and let them fall to your sides while you wait.
All good things must come to an end. Rainwater runs down your sleeves right into the tiny opening at the end of the gauntlet where the drawcord exits. And trickles into your wrist. A few more stoplights ahead and your gloves and hands are now wet inside the raincovers.
There are two solutions: 1) Remember not to lower your arms at stoplights. Learn to fold your arms across your chest or lay them on a tank bag. 2) Wear the Short Gauntlet raincovers #492 which are designed to be more easily tucked inside of your jacket sleeves.
