I really like this product. It really works for both walking and using a bicycle. The only problem with the bicycle is that if you use the mittens top grab the handles is very easy for the lower part to rise while you peddle. This makes it necessary to constantly try top keep it down in order not to wet your legs. If you don't use the mittens your hands get wet, but you are a little more covered. It still does not cover your legs fully, but it does a pretty decent job. With a pair of boot you should not have much trouble. If you are wearing a short skirt you'll be fine I think.
