for gloves I plan on wearing my gore-tex snowboarding gloves that have never let me down as far ask leaks go, and wear shortie alpinestars gloves underneath.
Thanks for the great recommendations I will definitely get this stuff to be prepared. No I will not intentionally set out into a storm but its fall now in Nor Cal and we can get some mighty fast rain showers blow in and be gone by morning. Here in sacramento the fog gets really bad come december or so and even though the roads aren't super wet you can get wet from the mist in the air. Also, it will rain overnight and you need some water protection from the cars throwing it up.
