WYMAN: The right combination of material (like kangaroo leather matched with a good moisture barrier) can do a lot to keep water from penetrating gloves. But keeping water out the gloves altogether would require a seal in the sleeve-to-glove interface. We've experimented with a number of solutions and continue to work on the problem. The key is making the seal comfortable, easy to activate, and affordable.
