Neoprene gloves wear out quick because most use an adhesive to bind the different parts of gloves. Gloves are also worn out quicker because people use their hands the most. The more stress and temperature change, the quicker the bonding adhesive wears out and they start to come apart. This gun cover will repel water but is not made to completely waterproof guns. Its made to protect it along with multiple other things like not having to hold a frozen gun on cold days. The material will hold up but it comes down to how the product is put together. It is sewn together not bonded and seamed around the edges so it will hold up much better that a pair of neoprene gloves.
