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.

Size is very odd

By Andie

from Montreal

Comments about NRS Boundary Socks with HydroCuff:

I bought 2 pairs one for myself and one for a friend. Both will have to be returned after high shipping cost lost. The feet are very small but the calf are huge. On both of us, atheltic women, the calf cannot seal and we float in them around the leg but they do fit on the feet for my friend. For me the sizing is completely off the given chart. I wear size 7 and ordered medium. They are way too big. For my friend who wear size 9 they do not seal at the calf either but the feet are odd shapped but fitting.

    Comments about NRS Boundary Socks with HydroCuff:

    Nice socks. I wear them under my footless dry pants and make, well...dry pants. They fit in my one size up oversized wetboots and that protects them and gives me a sole when portaging. They have been warm in low 30 degree weather and nice and dry. I wear a thin pair of wool or poly socks under them and that takes care of any feeling of clamminess.

    perfect winter SUP footwear

    By Kevin

    from Seattle Wa

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Warm

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Winter Sup

      Comments about NRS Boundary Socks with HydroCuff:

      I am an avid SUP and outrigger paddler in Seattle, meaning 3-5 times per week even in the winter. In both activities simply walking in the water to calf depth, which these socks enable is optimal, the only part of the body that gets wet normally. I wear smart wool socks inside these when very cold. The socks alone are great on the SUP in providing a supple feel to the board that a heavy soled water shoes would not. I walk to the beach with shoes over the socks which I leave on beach before launch.

      They keep me on the water.

          i bought a size M. i am a size 7 1/2. this size was perfect for me since i wear wool socks inside which helps keep my feet warm. Without socks these would be a half size too big for me. So far so good... winter kayaking is not a problem. These boundary socks keep my feet dry and I wear them with a pair of keen sandles to extend the durability. Wear with socks to increase warmth and cut perspiration.

            How much do these weigh? I see that the shipping weight on some sites is 1.5 pounds but i can't imagine neoprene socks weighing that much. Planning to take on a backpacking trip to Iceland and am trying to minimize weight.

              A:

              I no longer have the packaging, but you are correct, they do not weigh 1.5 lbs. They feel very light weight. A little heavier than the weight of a pair of wool knee socks. NRS should be able to give you more specifics.

              A:

              Hello,
              They weigh less than my Chaco sandals and will fit into any pack or luggage. Just be extra careful about sizing - it's easy to get a pair that are too small. I gave them as a gift so I cannot weigh them for you, for accuracy sake.
              When worn with sandals with good tread and highly adjustable straps, you can wade through water with ease and warmth. Once wet on the inside however they will take forever to fully dry so prepare for "damp and clammy"at times.
              Enjoy Iceland. It seems to be a magical place.

              I use mine for fishing. The seal is good for a short immersion, 30 seconds or so. Such as crossing a stream.
              But will leak some water if you stay in deeper for long periods.
              Not 100% of a seal but it keeps a lot of water out compared to my other neoprene socks.

              A:

              Water would likely get in. Depending on how snug they are around the calf, would effect how quickly the would get wet. But they do not have a vinyl gasket at the cuff. Like that of dry suits.

              A:

              The snugness of the top depends on the diameter of your upper calf. Even with a snug fit some water can seep in with longer submersion over the top.

            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!

              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.

              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.

              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.

              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.
