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

Before finding these shoe covers, I was on a quest to find a replacement for Castelli's earlier zippered version of the product. That is, a shoe cover that was aero, light, water-resistant, and super cool! And those covers were awesome until the zipper broke. My search for a replacement was fruitless, with a couple of dead-end products that just didn't make the grade. And then, right here on Competitive Cyclist, I saw Castelli's Slicker pull-on shoe cover. Looks promising. So I decided to take a chance on them. The end result: I am super happy with this product! There is a caveat (more on that in a moment). But this is the one. Nice tight fit, aero, and water rolls right off. Everything I was seeking for the early Fall riding, as well as into Winter (other than the coldest weather). So big thumbs up!

Ok, the caveat. If you buy these covers they do NOT come with info on how to put them on. Based on experience with another brand, here's how: First, put on your socks, then the shoe cover. After that put on your shoes and work the lower part of the cover down and over the shoes. To remove, just reverse the steps. If you do try to pull the covers over your shoes, you'll be disappointed. You would need to be massively strong and will likely wreck the product in doing so.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My wife and I ride a road tandem together frequently. Tandems are a unique experience, not just for the ride but for how you sit on the bike. Therefore tandems are THE acid test for a chamois. My wife has tried all types of shorts over the years. Cheap usually is, well, not good. Expensive, no guarantee of comfort. Sugoi Evolution shorts are "Goldilock" shorts. Not too expensive, not too much padding, just right in all respects, price, fit, and performance.

Winter is truly a cruel time of year. Cold, wet, dark. But if you are like me, you still want to ride. So being seen is critical. When I got ahold of the Knog Plus Front Light, I was frankly underwhelmed. And then I turned it on. Whoa! This is bright! Fast forward to my first ride with the light on a dreary, cold, dark NW day. It was impressive how quickly such a small light mounted at handlebar level got the attention of drivers. And charging is a total cinch. Just plug in to a USB port or charger and done. Net net, it's a winner. Light, low profile, super bright, easy to charge. And, cost effective.

I have used these a short times so bear that caveat in mind. If you want a shoe cover that is equally good at keeping your toes dry and being aero, these are what you want. There is not much insulation, so do not expect warmth with this version. These do fit very snug. I paired mine with size 41.5 Sidi's and medium fit is perfectly. Since I have used my pair maybe half a dozen times I really cannot speak yet to long-term durability. But for my money having a shoe covers last at least one winter season is acceptable.
