Wet wading and cold toe solution.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These wading socks are more than other options, but I find them to provide way more insulation and their durability and fit seem to justify the price. The L & R option is great and doesn't leave you with a lot of extra bunching toward the outside toes. 3.5mm neoprene fills out my boots while wet wading and I have had no issue with slipping or getting the sock on/off. Pair these with a light boot (PAT Ultralight Wading Boot) and you are set for a long day during high temps. When you are done, make sure to dry thoroughly (flip inside out too) to avoid any unnecessary funkiness. These are thicker and dry a little slower (may need to remove your boot insole for extra room), but provide a great amount of comfort and warmth when hitting tail waters. Couple them with a thin hiking or running sock for extra comfort.

Well worth it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These wading socks are great. A little on the pricier side, but have the durability to make them well worth it. The gravel guard keeps rocks and grit out of your boots and keeps the socks lasting for years. Medium fits great with my size 10 feet!

Fantastic for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When backpacking, pair these with closed-toe water shoes (buy a half size larger than normal) and you're all set. They're lightweight, and unfold to cover up to your knees. They're very warm in cold water. Personally I pair this with a Tenkara setup for backpacking, which makes for a very simple, lightweight kit.

Don't wear these with open toe sandals. I've done it; when you slip and stub your toe on a rock it still REALLY HURTS. The socks are thick and resilient but I still wouldn't trust them to hold up over time to that kind of abuse, either.

I'm a size 10 and fit perfectly in Medium.

Pros:
* Lightweight
* Great fit - dedicated left and right foot shapes
* Can clip to boots, or "unfold" for knee length wading
* Thick and durable (thicker than last year's model)
* Warm in cold water

Cons
* A little pricey
* You will not look sexy while wearing these
* Can be a little difficult to pull on/off when wet


Overall
* Fantastic for traveling light or keeping in the car. Pair with closed toe water shoes (half a size larger than your normal) and unfold the socks for knee-deep wading.

Leave the waders for the winter

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When its 90 degrees out the last thing I want to do is to hike around in a pair of waders. I dont care if theyre gore-tex with convertible zippers turning the bibs into pants.. its still damn hot! Out west the majority of the waters we fish are tail waters, so the water is consistently cold. With a pair of chacos on your feet will freeze even when it is 90 degrees out. These socks are the solution. The neoprene insulates the water around your feet so you are comfortable all day. The socks "guard" against pebbles and sand from collecting in your boots and they have similar thickness to wader booties allowing you to wear your wading boots all summer long. These simms wading socks are the only ones that i know of that have a specific right and left foot. The ergonomic design really aids in the comfort and minimizes the bunching that happens with other wading socks ive used.
