These are a great buy, in my opinion. I love the ability to hike through overgrown trails without dew soaking my pants/socks. Wearing these with shorts protects your lower leg from thorns, branches and what not while wearing shorts... a bit more circulation. As far keeping you dry during creek crossings, I cant really comment. I have relatively low profile boots (Vasque Breeze GTX) and so the seal around the cuff isnt all that tight (i may swap my Large Verglas for Mediums). However, I hiked for a couple days on snow covered trails- as much as 8 inches - and never felt damp on the inside.

All in all, these are a great item to have on a multiday trip to avoid scrapes and scratches. A MUST for hiking in snow.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked one of these on SAC. Got my my REI Sub Kilo +20 down bag AND a thermolite reactor liner into the 10 L Sac. Granted, I sit on it while I tighten the straps, and when I did this while buzzed the attachment point for one strap ripped but it still works fine and did not compromise the waterproofing.

TIP: tighten each strap a little bit and rotate trough all 4 rather than cinching one down all the way.
