Just got mine in the mail as well. They are thinner than I expected. Seem like they'll be a nice fit regardless. Won't get a chance to test mine for a few weeks, but I hope they don't get wet as quick as you describe.
If you want to be a chick, a dude, a tent, or a velociraptor be my guest, but if you choose the last one you bet your ass I will have a spaz-12 to your face.
