Since I ride year-round in the PNW, I have gone through my share of booties over the years. I tried these last year and found them to be the best I have used for waterproofness, warmth, and durability. They are easy to pull on and I love that they have no zippers or velcro. They don't chafe on the bare skin when wearing with knee warmers like a lot of ones with zippers do. The only reason I don't give these 5 stars is that they should wrap further under the shoe in the front. I find that water will get into the vents on the bottom of my shoes. I have solved this by placing duct over my shoe vent in the cold months. Aside from this nit-pick, they are great.
