    Warmth without the bulk.

    Layer the NRS Hydroskin Socks under your wetshoes for an extra layer of foot warmth without a lot of extra bulk. NRS built this sock out of a thin Terraprene material that insulates and protects your foot from cold, wet water. The PowerSpan outer layer provides a four-way stretch for enhanced mobility and durability, and a DWR coating sheds water off the sock to help keep it dry. The ThermalPlush lining increases insulation, repels your foot's moisture, and dries quickly to keep you comfy, and NRS added a titanium laminate to reflect your own body temperature back for even more warmth.

    • 0.5mm Terraprene neoprene material
    • 4-way stretch PowerSpan outer layer with DWR coating
    • ThermalPlush inner lining with titanium laminate

    Need These For Watery Trips

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like to use these in combination with my wool socks when I'm on long survey trips and I know my feet will get soggy. No blisters, warm feet, fairly comfy, and did I mention they'll keep you warm when you really need to stay warm? These were a good purchase.

    Warmth and protection

      I wear these over my dry suit booties during the cold spring run off raft guiding here in Colorado. They work great, keeping my feet from becoming ice blocks in the snow melt water. Worth ever penny. I wear wool socks inside the dry suit and these outside he drysuit. Pro Tip: you have to upsize your shoes.

      Won't do a spring river trip without 'em

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Love these socks! A total necessity for river trips and I bring them on all canyoneering trips. Slip them on underneath Chacos, or even under my wetshoes for really cold trips. Works great.

      Canyoneering, April in Zion

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Used these for Misery canyon by Zion in April 2016.

      Good for shorter swims in cold water pools that I did.
      May need a thicker sock for longer swims in snowmelt snow and longer cold water exposure.

      Recommended down-sizing if between sizes on size chart. I am a street size shoe 8.5 and sized up, but should have sized down instead.


      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I couldn’t find my dated hydroskin socks so repurchased…I use them hiking slot canyons and they go in my backpacking and bikepacking kit in the event of low temps and/or water. Take up little or no space in your pack and I think function as a vapor barrier liner to preserve some next to skin warmth.

      I can only get a thin or liner sock under and if/when it gets wet (either through submersion or just sweat accumulation) it takes longer to dry than the hydrosock turned inside out, so I generally wear this as the sock--not over.

      Filled the gap

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I picked these socks up to wear underneath my wading socks while wet wading. The wading boots are made to accommodate the 3mm neoprene booties on the waders. Unfortunately my wading socks aren't that thick so there is some wiggle room in there. These 0.5mm socks from NRS fill the gap perfectly and snug up the boot on my feet. Don't know what I'd do without them. I wear an 11-11.5 shoe and the XL fits great.

      Great Product

        We hiked the Paria Canyon in April, 2015. Lots of river crossings. This sock kept sand away from feet, and was remarkably comfortable in or out of water. It is neither waterproof nor very warm, but if you are going to be hiking in water, this is the sock for you

        A wet canyon must

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Me and some buddies all bought these socks for some wet canyons in Zion based on a recommendation of a friend. Let me say they are a life saver, we were hiking all day in water and had it not been for these buddies we all would have had some blistered cold feet, and let me say I'm not usually prone to blisters. Great to keep sand out, definitely warm enough for The Subway in May, more like a second skin than other brand we tried on.

        My shoe / boot size is USA 10.5... What size is that in this sock? L or XL ??? Thanks.. Rick
