I am about to buy a couple pair of the ForEveralst ray guards as Christmas gifts. I have read many threads on this site and others about these boots and I really like what I have read. When I went to buy them I noticed that if you buy the Ray Guard set the boot and the leg cover piece are actually sewn together but you can also buy the Reef boots and then buy the leg covers seperately. I originally thought that the Rayguards were a two piece system, I did not know they were sewn together. I like the idea of being able to get into the boat and take the leg piece off and leave the boots on if I want, or using the Reef boots on days when I don't need the stingray leg protection. Do any of ya'll use the Reef boots and the leg covers together? If so, how do they work out? Do you have any problems keeping the leggings on and down where they are supposed to be to protect the ankle? Thank you for any feedback or advice you have on these, I am going to buy these for my dad and brother and probably a set for myself as well.
