Default "Wet" chain lube suggestions?


For years I've used Tri-flow to lube my chain, applying a drop to each link after wiping dirt off the chain when it comes time to re-lube, and wiping off the excess.

This winter I'm doing a lot more riding in soaking weather, and I generally find that after riding in even a short downpour, my chain needs attention before my next ride.

There are "wet" chain lubes that are supposedly stickier and less likely to rinse off in rainy conditions. Do they really work? Or do they just make more of a mess? Should I just resign myself to the drivetrain clean and re-lube routine after every wet ride (it would likely make me ride less)?

If they do work, I'd like to hear your recommended brands.
