I do spray the backs of them.....Joe, when I ice climb in cold conditions, I actually take a pair per one to two pitches (depending how cold and wet I expect the climb to be), Will Gadd taught me that trick (staying dry>insulation). Actually weighs less than bringing heavier gloves and mitts. The common ground between dexterity and waterproofness creates the target we seek. In the alpine environments, two pair at all times....keeping one dry, letting one get wet and trashed and putting back on if faced with getting wet again. I find the use of chemical hand warmers (which can be bought in bulk at Costco now days) and two light pair of gloves with good feel, a better, lighter system then ever using expensive and/or bulky gloves or mitts. And I live with hands that have been frostbitten when I was young and thus quite sensitive (via leather gloves when I was a cowboy in the Midwest...don't think we even knew what Gore Tex was). Cheers.
