Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Out of the box these looked like oversized plastic bags over my shoes- but I thought as long as they keep me dry I guess I'll live with the bizarre fit. I fastened the velcro enclosure as tight as I could around my calf (wearing leg warmers) and rode for 25 minutes in light to medium NYC rain. I had to ring out my socks as if I'd not used a shoe cover at all. Throughout the entire ride I could feel the water coming in through the top. It's obvious that the oversized nature of the product, combined with the cheap velco enclosure and lack of stretch in the fabric make it impossible to get a good seal.

These were meant to replace my 15 year old no-name $25 neoprene covers- which are still intact but come loose given the age of the velcro. But for 14 of those years they kept my feet dry and warm in all kinds of crazy conditions. Bottom line- find a neoprene product with a zipper, if anyone makes it.

Also, there is no insulating liner in these as advertised. Do the copywriters even touch these products before writing about them?

Wore these once- light to medium rain in NYC. They were completely soaked through in less than 10 mins. Like me, you may have seen them advertised as being for ~ 'cold wet conditions' or even 'waterproof,' Nope. Not even close. My 12 year old Gore Windstopper gloves function better, even in their current tattered condition.

Also, the internal liner feels like it will go inside out when you take them off and it's hard to get them back comfortably into their finger holes. This is exacerbated when they're wet.
