  • NRS Boundary Sock with HydroCuff

    Q:

    I somehow managed to develop major tears in one of my Boundary Socks at the end of last season, but the other sock is perfectly intact. Because the price of a new pair is fairly steep for me, I'm wondering: do you sell single socks separately? Thanks!

      A:

      Will, we don't sell single socks. You should be able to repair the sock with Seal Cement, Item # 33504.01. Watch this video - http://www.nrs.com/shop/video_Library.asp?vid=409&cv=1 - for tips on making the repair. For a sock you should be able to just use the cement. Be careful to leave a smooth seam inside the sock.

    Q:

    Two questions: 1) Do these socks get really stinky? and 2) How do you care for the Boundary sock, as far as washing/drying. Once they're wet, do they take a long time to dry? Thanks~!

      A:

      Carol, water, bacteria (river and other waters contain them) and warmth = odors. Wash and rinse after repeated uses. Neoprene doesn't "breathe," so you'll need to turn them inside out to dry. They're great socks, just use good, practical procedures to maintain them.

    Q:

    Hi,

    I'm looking to replace my neoprene socks on my breathable waders. Would a pair of these work?
    Asked on 2/9/2014 by Ants from New zealand

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The waders I'm familiar with that have neoprene socks, have the socks bonded on at the bottom of wader legs. I think the tops of these socks are much too tall for that to work. Perhaps something like our Expedition Socks, Item # 30014.02, could be made to work. However, I suggest you turn to the manufacturer of your waders to see if they offer replacement socks.

      I am a 9 1/2, I bought the XL. There is a little room in the toebox, but I think a large would have been too small. Buy XL.

      A:

      Good Afternoon, I would recommend the larger size since many of my fellow paddlers wear a sock inside of the boundary sock for warmth. I wear a size nine and bought the large which is perfect. Please be reminded that the boundary sock requires more space inside a sandal or boot. I had to buy a larger sandal. Hope this helps.

    Q:

    I have two questions. One, I use a pair of Kokatat TROPOS Whirlpool Bibs to kayak in. They have ankle gaskets that keep water from getting above my ankles, but in cold water, I'd like to keep my feet dry as well. Can I use a pair of NRS boundary socks, with the ankle gaskets from my bibs over the socks to keep both my feet and legs dry? And question two. I wear a mens size 10 1/2 shoe, what size socks should I order?
    Thank you

      There are two taped seam that runs up the sock. You might get a bit of seepage there, but it shouldn't be much. You'll want the XL sock.

      A:

      Answer to number one, yes you can, but you cannot submerge your foot higher than your sock height as there will be wrinkles in your ankle gasket that will allow water to go above gasket height, you may have a problem with your gasket being too tight though and causing you discomfort on long paddles. I personally wear a pair of spray pants over my boundary socks that have a Velcro closure so you can regulate the tightness at your ankle. They also allow for your pants to drain quicker. I would order the XL size. Hope this helps.

I used the product as a wet insulating layer under foul weather gear and neoprene booties to ward off the cold, sailing in 56* water in San Francisco.

This product did effectively keep me warm, but I think a design incorporating more neoprene panels better shaped to a foot would help it fit better and more comfortably inside footwear.

Ordering a size smaller prevents the fit problems associated with excess material, the neoprene stretches to fit anyway.

These look well made like most NRS products. I bought these for sea kayaking where one is often taking off and landing in ankle-deep frigid water. Unfortunately the foot portion seems to run small and the ankle-calf areas are way too wide. Obviously it's difficult to fit every body type but these seem to be made for someone with beefier legs relative to their foot size. The whole purpose of the Hydrocuff is to seal out water - doesn't work when they don't fit snugly. They might work fine if you are on the stocky side. Unfortunately they had to go back.

        I bought these socks for backpacking/fishing. I couldn't carry waders with me, but these were small enough to fit in my pack and allowed me to wade up to my knees. I slipped some cheap watershoes over them and they worked like a charm. Plenty warm, of course the neoprene doesn't breath so your feet get sweaty, but they work well.

                Comments about NRS Boundary Sock with HydroCuff:

                I purchased the HydroCuff socks to solve for the issue of numb feet, which I experience by the end of a river rafting trip. Before purchasing the HydroCuff sock I would wear the aqua booties provided by the rafting company, resulting in burning cold feet, that eventually went numb by the end of the 4+ hour trip. I use these socks once so far a few weeks ago during a 4 hour rafting trip. I wore the sock and walking sandals, no aqua booties, as the HydroCuff socks are bulky around the toe area. I put on the HydroCuff sock and then the wetsuit over top. I just made sure that when I was walking in the river that I did not go deeper than the socks. The experience was positive. By the end of the 4 hours in the river raft my feet were just a little cool. These socks greatly improved my enjoyment of the rafting ride.
