Hydroskin 0.5 Sock

Layer the NRS Hydroskin Socks under your wetshoes for an extra layer of warmth without a lot of extra bulk. NRS built this sock out of a thin 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, while a DWR coating sheds water off the sock to help keep it dry. Additionally, a 0.5mm neoprene core doubles down on your insulation and safeguards your foot from warmth-sapping cold waters. 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.

  • An ideal paddling companion for cold days on the river
  • Compatible with wetshoes and sandals
  • Multi-layer construction provides warmth and protection
  • DWR treatment fends off moisture and water
  • Anatomically shaped left and right socks for your convenience
  • Item #NRS008L

These keep my feet a little extra warm when kayaking. The size Large fits inside my size 9.0 Astral Loyak shoes just fine. I usually wear a 9.5 in most shoes and the large fits fine but is not super tight on my skinny feet but this has not seemed to be an issue for me. They do not drain well, but thats never really been a huge issue either.

Not for skinny feet

I returned this product before using it

I bought these to use for white water rafting this summer. I tried them on they were comfortable and looked really nice, but I have really skinny feet and ankles, so there was tons of room in the sock for cold water to rush in and out making these socks useless for me. I had to return them.

Super socks

Bought these to go with my NRS river shoes and they work great. Super comfortable and I can't feel the seams when I wear them.

These neoprene socks are thin enough to fit in the chacos, or shoes you normally wear, and provide decent insulation on the feet when the air temperature isn't too cold. Perfect for summer trips with cold water.

Ideal for water travel

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got these for my girlfriend, and she had this to say: So happy with how these socks performed, keeping my feet warm in frigid water while canyoneering. They were thin enough to have my shoes still fit easily over them, and while they are not super snug, there was no looseness either, allowing my feet to feel protected but not trapped. Would highly recommend.

Thin and Warm

I've used it several times

These work great for adding extra warmth when wet wading. I have also used them canyoneering and work good for that as well. Fit is true to size. I'm an 11.0 and the XL fits good.

Comfortable and warm

Easy to slip on, keeps my feet warm when it chills down a bit on the river. Does the job!

Excellent socks for the water!

I've used it several times

Super thin and super light but still great wet socks! They kept me warm on the Yampa when we had cold days on the river!
