Rain Booties

I am looking for a set of compact rain booties. I don't want neophrene and I saw the set from Campmor
and don't like the quality of those.

Thanks

Ed

You could try Rocky brand goretex socks. Wear them over regular socks.

Your shoes will get wet but your feet will stay dry, but if you have a second pair of shoes, you'll be ok. They are dual purpose, can be used in hiking boots.

I like them because they aren't just for bicycling (like over-shoes are), and, they are lightweight and pack tight. And, my feet get cold easily---but not in these.

I'm not interested in getting my shoes wet. I have a set of seal skins, they are just to tight.
