Title: BBB overshoes confusion
Post by: PloddinPedro on December 12, 2012, 06:53:45 pm
I suffer rather from cold feet on long rides. I have the non-ventilated winter boots, heavy duty socks etc., but although all this mostly keeps the wet out, I still need extra warmth. I've heard good things about BBB but their website lists quite a number of models and it's a little difficult to judge which are the warmest.

I've sent an email to them looking for an answer to this but it would be good to hear of any YACfers' experience with them.

Or indeed of any other brands which have proved to be both waterproof and warm.

I have a pair of BBB Hardwear Aquashield which have been excellent. I think they are neoprene with a PU coating.

BBB Hardwear circa '10 - not water proof, warm, cheap
BBB Aquashield '10 and '12 - water proof, coated PU, expensive

have been trying to wear out my aquashields for 5 years so I can buy some "flash" new ones

I have failed- they refuse to die and are very good

There are a  bunch of branded overshoes which are all so similar I assume they all come out of the same factory. My last couple of pairs have been "Pro H20 Endure". Thin sealed PU outer with thin fleece lining and reinforced toe . Go on stretchy and keep the wind and rain out. Wear with defeet woolie boolie socks and any water that gets in can be ignored.
