Waterproof overboots?

I need a pr. with soles that will fit over my 12w boots, does anyone have any suggestions?
I tried the slip on XL/XXL cycle gear boots and the largest size would not fit over my stompers.

I had to go to a farm store and get a pair of the standard back rubber ones to fit over the Size 13 boots I wear when riding. They sold them up to sizes that would go over a Size 14 boot. I was concerned that they might be too clunky and bulky to effectively use the shift and brake levers, but found that once I'm riding, I can't even tell I have them on: no problems with the levers.

They might be ugly and they take up a lot of room if you're going to carry them on the bike, but they'll definitely keep your boots dry.

Mine are kind of like these, but aren't as tall and were cheaper. Unfortunately, mine also have the cheaper rubber/elastic loop and button fasteners. I wish they had the classic metal buckle-over fasteners like these do.

I use the light weight versions now, but before using these I was using ones similar to the TSC store ones. they are for veternarians. Not cheap, but worked extremely well. BUT, took up way too much room. They are tall and strong and come in many farm sizes.....lol. If I knew I was going to need them on a regular basis for a long trip, I would sacrifice the room and take them over a light wieght version that will either wear through or rip.

Just my 22 cents worth....lol.....
