Love mine! In the very cold weather my tall Schampa tucks up to where my helmet is and keeps me warm and dry.

Hope it works for you!

Have one of those, too.
Works well for most situations.
But, to keep dry , well...
lurk

Will bring it to FART, for sale.


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

There are numerous Schampa products .... the tall dickie fits up against the bottom of my helmet. For me to get water down it i would need to be standing under a waterfall .... and then I have bigger issues to deal with.

I have that version.
As you say, fits up against the bottom of the helmet.
So, have you ridden in all day rain with it?
I've done multiple long days in rain with every type of neck gaiter/design out there.
Water can, and will, with the assist from wind forces, find a way in.
Not looking to argue, and hope you never have the infiltration, but, it will happen.

So, gloves over sleeves, or inside sleeves to keep drier?
rofl

I guess I have been blessed but yes have ridden in some nasty stuff all day and my neck stayed dry.

Rain covers OVER my sleeves for sure. But that is based on MY riding position. Have rain covers for my gloves with welded seams. Tried the Aeorstich triple digit covers twice and both leaked. But honestly unless it is cold out I many times let my deerskin gloves just get wet as they dry quickly.

So, wet deerskin gloves.
What oil do you use for them?
wink

Everyone is different, my Triple Digits from Aerostitch have worked great for over 10 years, no leaks.
grin
Best wishes.

When they get wet I let them dry and then just use a good hand cream on them. Figure if it works on dry skin it should work on dry deerskin. Has worked well for years.

The issue with the Aerestich rain gloves is they are stitched (or they were when I had my 2 pair) and they just leaked. The ones I bought are sealed not sewn and work great. They are also made with the option of how the 3 fingers are configured ... you can get them 2/2/thumb or 3/1/thumb. I really like the 3/1/thumb setup as for ME it gives me more control in the wet. Got them through a guy (Catfish) on the Valkyrie site.
