    Quick question.. sorry.. Typo in topic.. It's Super Duty, not Suoer Duty..
    Are these things reasonably waterproof?.. I have been through all of the info on these and it does not say that they are, but yet I can'tbeleive they will leak like a pair of tennis shoes..

    Get the patrol if you want waterproof. I can verify that they are in fact waterproof, very comfortable and provide great protection.

    I have Superduty 2 (since 2007), Superduty 4 (bought in late 2011) and Patrol (since last summer). Superduty 2 are mostly waterproof, but not marketed in any way as waterproof. Superduty 4 are terrible in any light rain, it gets right into it. Patrol are true waterproof, but longer and less ventilated.

    Superduty 3 may be quite resistant to water, but they are not waterproof. They will not leak as a pair of tennis shoes, they will offer protection on a short and light rain (if the water will not get in from the pants, that's a high probability as these boots are low), but they are not suitable for a long ride in the rain.

    +1 on the Superduty 2's.
    Been using them for several years and they are fine in the rain. Not waterproof but fine.
    Last year I rode in the absolute heaviest rain I have ever seen, car or bike, ever. My feet got wet but not soaked.
