Never had a rain problem with cuffs over jacket.

As for the neck, try wearing a baby nappy (terry towel NOT the disposable, duh) round your neck. When used for its intended purpose, a nappy, if only wet, keeps a baby happy for a long time and does not irritate the skin. You don't need to buy loads of them, they last forever - I have just used the last of our old nappies (my youngest is 30 this month). Plus wearing one can be a bombshell opening chat-up line.

Surely it all depends on the style of the gloves. Big gauntlet types won't go under anything. And indeed the jacket you are wearing, whether it's tight fitting at the wrist or not.  'There's no wrong way.

Has anyone ever tested all the theories on this and tried one cuff out and one cuff in? Does rain run down your sleeve at 30+ mph or is it blown back by the wind? Will water or insects run up your sleeve if you tuck them in?

Strangely, I suspect not.

Although having said that, you'd think perhaps one of the jacket or glove manufacturers would have. Probably have, but couldn't use it in advertising because the results weren't good enough for them to claim "keeps the rain out".

The design of jackets is a factor. My previous jacket had a long zip at the end of sleeves and an inner elasticated sleeve. This allowed most gloves to be worn 'inside' or 'outside' the sleeve. My current jacket doesn't have an inner sleeve and a limited opening. This doesn't give many options!  :138:
