I only put them on to trim. They go on in just a few seconds, because you just wrap them around and pull the velcro straps on. As soon as you're done, they just tear away. Shake them of a flick or two, and back in the trailler they go. I've had mine a few years now, and they hold up well. It's nice having clean legs and socks at the end of the day, though. as far as walking, once in a great hile I will readjust them, but if you put them on right, they don't move. I DID just discover that they work better when you wear them on the proper legs, though.
