I like my Held Satu gloves. Always worked for me even in Nebraska frog choking rainstorms at speed. Waterproof and now have conductive pads on the thumb and forefinger to control a phone when necessary. A little pricey but worth it.

My first car was a motorcycle.

I got a pair of gore-tex Olympia gloves. They look nice, comfy, leather is smooth and soft... work great for riding in cold-ish weather. But when I had a full day of riding in a heavy rain they were soaked all the way through in only a couple of hours. Each one felt heavy as a brick and took over 2 days to dry out. So, my vote is for the overgloves too.

Maybe I'm just unlucky but I've spend $$$ on gloves several times only to be disappointed in the long run time & again. I learned that Camp Dry is my friend. When applied a couple times per year it works significantly better than any mfr's claim of waterproofing.

I just spray my gloves and boots with silicone spray. Been working for over twenty years, I live in Oregon any we do get a “little “ rain now and then.

No configuration will keep you dry all
day long in heavy rain. I’ve got some good gloves. But nothing compares to aerostich triple digit rain covers. I’ll never go back to anything else.

Others just get mesh fabric gloves, and let it rain but that's not always fun. There are waterproof overgloves, basically rubber gloves if you can find ones big enough to go over your gloves, or get a thin pair to go inside them.
Handguards also go a long way to keeping the water off your hands.
Yep. That's been my experience. Sadly, gloves adequate to keep water out are also quite good at keeping water in. In a deluge like the one described in the OP I've wound up pouring water out of my boots and gloves.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.
