I bought a drysuit with ankle gaskets, and tore one of them on the river. I decided to go ahead and cut the other one out and replace both with the dry socks. Great decision. I installed them myself by following the video on the website, and it was very simple. Now it doesn't take me 30 min to get out of my drysuit at the end of the run.

I bought these to add to my NRS dry pants that came with ankle gaskets. I use them for paddling surfski type boats where my legs and feet are in water. I loved them for as long as they lasted but after a couple years one just tore with very little tension on it while putting on the pants. It seemed as though the material had rotted and weakened with age. I may have used them 30 or 40 times in a couple years.

They were not impossible to install but not easy either. I will go back to using fabric booties from now on.

      Comments about NRS Latex Dry Sock:

      My old drysocks broke because I didn't wear socks underneath. Wear socks every time (and cut your toenails =) ).

      These replacements are good. Installation is identical to other gaskets, except it is hard to align the feet correctly. If you mess up, they will stick out to the side instead of straight ahead!

        Combined with the online video on the website, removing torn ankle gaskets and replacing them with rubber booties was easy even though my first try. I did make a little mess on the workbench and some adhesive got on the booties but no big deal. It is nice to have feel completely dry.

            Can I replace my ankle gaskets with these?

            • A:

              Hey Mark, 
                  My experience mainly pertains to swapping like item for like item on water rescue suits for my Fire Department. At the end of the day switching seals/ socks is just like legos, and your prep will make or break the repair
                 I would make sure the diameter of your existing ankle gasket (where the suit material meets the seal) and the dry sock are similar/ same. The biggest difficulty will be finding/ marking your center point as to not have the sock
              misaligned with your suit. Also, make sure you have enough of the existing latex seal to get a good weld of the material (roughly 2 inches or so). The included videos on NRS's website are spot on, definitely use the foam templates they show. 
              Hope this wasn't info overload, NRS is always helpful if you call. 
              Good luck!
              -Ben

              A:

              Attaching new boot to drysuit:
              The hardest part is getting a mandrel to fit the leg of the wetsuit.
              Maybe a 2-quart clorox bottle, a roll of paper towel, or whatever else
              that works. Maybe the mandel needs newspaper wrapped around it to get a
              better fit, covered with wax paper so the adhesive will not stick. It
              sould fit tight enough and be firm enough so there are no folds, and it
              can take the pressure of the next few steps.
              Second, does the sock fit over it reasonably easy without too much
              stretching? If it fits sloppy, you need a smaller sock (can't expect the
              adhesive to do miracles). If it won't fit without causing folds, you need
              a bigger sock.
              Next, maybe some masking tape judiciously around the leg or the sock will
              help to eliminate adhesive disfigure whan the job is done (the masking
              tape can be removed with some careful scapel work where the adhesive
              tries to bind).
              Then, put the sock into position and roll the top of the sock back into a
              cuff (the cuff is where you put the adhesive).
              Apply adhesive in the cuff area of the sock.
              Roll the cuff back up.
              Wrap the whole thing with wax paper and then bind firmly with masking
              tape (or whatever) so as to have a pressure bond (this might not be
              necessary if everything else fits exactly right). The object is not to
              compress the whole assembly, but rather to compress and spread the
              adhesive between the sock and leg.
              Best to practice this whole procedure without the application of adhesive
              until comfortable.
              Same procedure can be used to attach cuffs.

              A:

              Charlie, the procedure is the same as in the video. Here's a tip our repair people have for you - you'll notice there's a crease that runs down the top of sock and around under the foot and up the back of the sock. Make marks on your drysuit where that crease meets the suit fabric. Doing that will let you make sure the new sock is oriented properly. And be sure to get the right size sock by consulting this Sizing Guide - http://www.nrs.com/repair/gasket_sizing.asp

              A:

              I have replaced latex socks by:
              a.. cutting off the old sock, leaving about 1" of old sock attached to the drysuit
              b.. building a jig using an appropriate sized food can built up with newspaper and inserting down the leg of the drysuit. The goal is to fully expand the remaining ring of old sock. This is unlikely to be perfect, but "good enough" should work
              c.. clean the surfaces to be glued with alcohol
              d.. apply Aquaseal to the remaining ring of old sock. Place the new sock over the jig, carefully orienting the toe in the correct direction. Turn up about 1" of new sock, apply Aquaseal to turned-up surface.
              e.. roll down turned-up new sock to join to old sock ring
              f.. squeeze out air/wrinkles with a spoon
              g.. bind with duct tape
              h.. let cure for 24 hours
              i.. remove jig from leg
