The NEOS Trekker Overshoe is 20 inches tall, weighs 2 pounds/pair and comes in sizes S-XXL to fit over most any shoe or boot. Its sister, the Villager, is 10 inches tall and weighs 1.6 pounds. We evaluated the Trekker as part of a project to identify Lightweight Footwear Systems for Snow Travel (to be published in March), and tested them while snowshoeing and snow camping in frigid weather. How well did they do?
