Anyone aware of some tight fitting gaiters that would help keep rain from running down your ankles and into your shoes? (Yes, it does rain in Fresno in the winter.) Thanks.

I just zip the tights over the top of the neprene booties, but that's when it's 36 and raining. I don't imagine you have that problem in Fresno :-)

Have you tried those shoe covers that cover the entire shoe, but have no insulation? I think they're made from PVC or something similar. If you want to use a gaiter, I think the first step would be to get something over shoe that is high enough for the gaiter to lap over.

My experience is that generally, when it rains you're going to get wet.

It does rain here and some of the gaiters were well reviewed in Cycling + and Cycling Weekly

I use them all the time for commuting and other rides. Sealskinz is one brand. They are especially great for commuting because you can always have them in your bag and available. Stuffing the shoes with newspaper dries them.
