My first impressions was all positive about the dhb overshoe and the quick service from Wiggle really helped with that impression. They came packaged in a clear plastic bag, not premium packaging but you only throw it away anyway

Sizing and installation
I am a size 46 in road shoe and I went with a x large and the fit was great. The overshoe is easy to put on and fits snug leaving very little gap for stray water to get in. When you zip them up at the back the zip has a nice little buckle t hook over that helps to keep the zipper in place. Once you finish the ride and have to take these off the overshoes are easy to remove, I have not tried them after a long ride with cold hands, but I can’t see them being to much of a problem.
I have used these in both windy cold conditions and a heavy downpour that lasted for 45 mins. The windy cold conditions kept my feet nice and toasty. Normally I feel the wind come through as my shoes have vents in the front, but for obvious reasons I didn’t have this. In the wet I was worried at first, but they held up and whilst other parts of me got very wet my feet was kept away from the elements. When I removed them however my feet was slightly damp, but this was down to the sweat.
These are good value shoes, if you are brand person then they may not be for you. But I really like them and will be using them through the coming 2016 winter. Buy them from Wiggle
