Score

8/10

Pros

  • Well made

Cons

  • Velcro closure lacks flexibility

  • Pearl’s Barrier overshoe is a technical bit of kit.

    Fleece-lined, 3mm Neoprene, toughened sole reinforcement and windproof panels all do a great job of keeping feet warm.

    Verdict

    Only the full height, 30mm-wide Velcro fastening causes concern: Anyone with sensitive Achilles tendons will struggle with the lack of flexibility in the fastening, which loses the Pearl a mark.
