It doesn't rain much here in So Cal, but I got these for the few occasions that is does. I bought these about 3 weeks ago. My only use so far has been in the snow. For Christmas, our family went to Flagstaff, AZ, where it is deep in snow. I brought along these boots, just in case my Sorel's needed a break. It was only in the 30's all week, so I decided to mainly use these. They kept my feet dry in hiking, snow play and general walking around. They are light and not overly bulky, so I was able to wear them as I drove my car around town as well. In my Sorel's I can't wear them while I drive. I'm looking forward to being able to wear them while it rains, but am pleasantly surprised and impressed at how well they functioned even in snow. I recommend them highly.
