Jon B.wrote a review of Gore Bike Wear Universal City OverShoes on September 24, 2011
Every year for the past 15 years, my friends and I do a 350 mile, 5 day bicycle tour from Lansing Michigan to the Mackinaw Bridge. The 1st 14 years, we only ever had a short sprinkle while riding. There have always been rainy nights, but never an entire day of rain.....until last year. In fact, it rained every day, and there was a two hour driving rain on day 2.
This year I decide to taunt the universe by purchasing an entire set of rain gear. I assumed my large outlay of cash would prevent the rain. I was however wrong. Though this years weather was much better, we did get a heavy rain on day 4. Anticipating the rain, I stowed my rain gear in my rear pack. Once the rain started, we pulled over and I donned my rain gear including the City Overshoe.
The overshoe fit great (I purchased the 11.0 - 13.0). I spent about a week looking for a non-insulated shoe cover. When it rains in this part of the country in August, it is usually warm and extremely humid. It has a simple velcro closure in the rear. The front wraps around the bottom of the shoe and tappers at the rear where it just wraps around the rear of the shoe. Clipping in and out is not a problem.
The customer service is excellent. Never having ordered from Real Cyclist, I used the on-line chat to inquire about availability. The e-mail updates were humorous and timely.
