The innovative three-layer construction of Hanz Waterproof Calf-Length Socks keeps your feet completely dry while providing the comfort, fit and breathability of a quality hiking sock.
  • Three-layer MVT (Moisture Vapor Transpiration) fabric structure prevents water from penetrating while allowing perspiration to escape.
  • The durable nylon/Lycra® outer and a comfortable, moisture-wicking inner lining hide a high-tech waterproof, breathable membrane.
  • Stretch-to-fit material eliminates uncomfortable sags and wrinkles, even during strenuous activity.
  • Seamless design provides total comfort, free of annoying ridges and pressure points.
  • Each sock is high-pressure tested to ensure waterproof performance.
  • Waterproof up to the top of the sock. For a totally waterproof sock, choose Hanz Submerge Waterproof Socks which have a specially-lined cuff that seals out water.
  • Note: Hand-wash and drip-dry socks. Do not twist or wring socks, this will damage the waterproof, breathable membrane.

  • Hanz SealSkinz Waterproof Crew-Length Socks

    Q:

    what kind of soap is wreck amended to wash socks or deos it really matter

      A:

      Depends on how smelly the socks are. After 21 days on the Grand Canyon, a several day soak in water and bleach was the only solution followed by a regular wash in the machine with Tide detergent and line drying. The socks are seemingly very durable, even after multiple washings, bleach soakings and wear and tear in sandy environments. Hope this helps.

      Turn them inside out, and use regular laundry soap. Make sure that you rinse them out real good.

      A:

      That's a good question! I never really thought about it since I wore thin
      socks underneath the Seal Skinz socks. I wore these socks on a 2 weeks
      Grand Canyon trip and didn't feel like they were really dirty when I got
      home, just sandy. But knowing how sensitive other outdoor gear is, probably
      a very mild detergent or something for delicates would work.

      Matt, a mild powdered soap will be best. Wash in warm water, rinse thoroughly and air dry. Do NOT wring them out, you'll damage the waterproof/breathable membrane.

  • Hanz SealSkinz Waterproof Crew-Length Socks

    Q:

    Two questions:
    Are NRS sizes for socks shoe sizes or sock sizes?
    Are SealSkinz socks sized to fit tightly on your foot or to fit over another thick sock? I have some NRS Boundary and Expedition socks that have a lot of extra material in the foot area. I'm looking for a tighter fit around my small feet, but need them to stretch around my larger calves.

      A:

      Bottom line is I don't think these are ideal, but I haven't found an ideal water sock, just like I haven't found an ideal water shoe. Many work, but every one has drawbacks.
      It's been a year since I've used these.I've only used them as primary socks, never with a liner. My recollection is the foot box is more loose fitting than a normal sock due since the material where your foot rests is less constrictive than a normal sock(fits the length of the foot but if you have small feet, may feel looser than ideal)They do lock around the calf fairly well. They're more comfortable than thicker neoprene socks imo, but if the water is above your calf, then water may leak in (Which goes counter to a key selling point, but perhaps its me always being in deep fast water with these)My use case was in a canyoneering environment with fast water and depth well over the top of sock. It kept debris out, but water did enter the sock at times which required draining or else you're walking around in a bit of water. I had some 15 mile days in these though. Also, the waterproof membrane can dislodge from the main sock layer, so put on and take of with care to lengthen lifespan.

      A:

      I think it would be most closely related to shoe size, although since each
      of these sock sizes covers a range of sizes it is hard to find a true fit.
      Stretching over the calves shouldn't be a problem. I, too, have large
      calves and was really pleased with the amount of stretch in these socks. I
      wear a 7.5 or 8 women's shoe size and purchased these socks for a winter
      raft trip in the Grand Canyon. Because it was winter I wanted to have some
      flexibility for sock layering and decided to order a medium. I tried out a
      few different set-ups: medium weight wool socks w/ the seal skinz socks w/
      the expedition socks, two pair medium weight wool socks w/ the seal skinz,
      etc. For the bulk of the trip I wore just one pair medium weight wool socks
      with the seal skinz and was really happy. There was a little bit of extra
      space in the toes and heel but not enough to be really bothersome. I also
      wore chaco type sandals and they were just barely able to accommodate the
      wool socks with the seal skinz. If I were to order these again for a summer
      or warm weather trip and was not concerned with extra sock layering
      ability, I'd probably go with a small. I don't know that I'll ever wear my
      expedition socks now, these are way easier and provide better warmth.

      A:

      It seems to me the sock sizing chart used by nrs is pretty accurate. I am a size 7.5 in womens and bought the medium socks, also intending to wear them over thicker socks. They did fit well, but were a bit tight on top of heavy wool socks. The set up was not as warm as I was hoping, although they did stay water tight with my dry pants. I would go a size up probably based on your comments.

      A:

      Dale, It seems like the sizes are shoe sizes, and the sealskinz are
      somewhat tight on the foot and I bet you'd be able to stretch them around
      your calves, actually they probably keep water out better with a bigger
      calf rather than someone with skinny chicken legs. And unlike some
      neoprene socks I've worn, there isn't alot of extra material on the foot,
      they feel more like regular socks. But heads up, they aren't really very
      warm, I've been wearing neoprene socks over the sealskinz, and if you're
      wearing dry pants, the ankle gasket of the pants won't let the sealskinz
      keep out water.

      A:

      Not sure how to properly answer that so I will give you as much detail as
      possible.
      I got a pair of Large SealSkinz, my shoe size is 10.5, the socks fit
      perfectly, I dont like them super tight, but I would not be ok if they were
      even a tiny bit loose, they get less firm after first use but not really
      looser. I dont wear anything under them.
      Regarding the calves, my calves are a bit bigger than normal for my build,
      at least i have heard comments on that. They feel great around my calves
      just the perfect amount of snug, if your calves are really big they may get
      to tight. Hope that was helpful

      A:

      Dale, the NRS neoprene socks are sized XS-XXL. When you open the Sizing tab there's a chart converting those letter designations to shoe sizes. The SealSkinz socks fit like most fabric socks and are pretty true to size. How they will fit on your feet and calves just depends on your measurements. Give them a try; I think you'll like them.

  • Hanz SealSkinz Waterproof Crew-Length Socks

    Q:

    Are these easy to get on and off? How does ease of getting on and off compare with your other similar products. I need something to keep my feet dry/warm only to wade in and out of cold water and will want to take them off once I am in my boat, and put back on when I want to get out of my boat. What do you recommend for that? They have to have a relatively low profile for carrying along (I am using them for a single scull, very small). Don't have to wade in very deeply, maybe calf high or a bit above.

      Should work well. Just a bit more difficult than a normal tube sock but not
      as difficult as a wetsuit or neoprene fishing booty. I wore mine with crocs
      in Canada bluefin fishing and they kept my feet warm and dry. Have also
      worn them with tennis shoes while sailing and had similar results.
      Great product.

      These socks should work for what you are doing. Note: this sock is 11" high and the top is not sealed. The SealSkinz Submerge Sock is 15" high with a water seal at the top.

      A:

      I have no problem taking them off or putting them on. It all depends on how tight they fit the foot. I have several of like items, and if they tend to fit loose they pull off real easy. You might want to wear a thin silk sock or like item underneath. I use a thin sock for skiing and find the neoprene socks slip off real easy. Very little friction between the flesh and the sock. With out the inner sock it can be a little grabby with a tight fitting sock.
      I hope this helps,

      Hi Cinda,
      The socks are easy on, easy off. I use them as a liner for my 8 1/2" high
      water shoes to keep my feet dry when getting in and out of my kayak in
      shallow water (the water shoes have an inside zipper that goes to the top
      of the arch). They're comfortable and work perfectly for my application,
      but the will leak if you go over the top of the sock. But my feet stay dry
      and comfortable as long as I don't go over the top. I love them for my use.

              Comments about Hanz SealSkinz Waterproof Crew-Length Socks:

              Our group tried them out on a northern Canadian canoe trip about 8 years ago. Those who wore them in the canoes liked them until they stepped over the top (big surprise). They then took awhile to dry in the cool, wet weather. I kept them for camp wear inside runners, and had light, dry foot protection. Like another review said, the feet can feel a bit damp, maybe due to sweat, but compared to what they would be with wool socks or bare feet in light footware, priceless! Since then, I discovered Crocs for camp shoes, and the combo is dynamite for damp weather and dewy grass. I wore them this summer with my crocs and liner socks in camp on a very cold wet hiking trip. It was sweet! Light to pack, comfy, and dry. My brother, choosing between his hiking boots or bare feet in crocs, was envious. I have just bought a pair for him for Christmas.

                  Bought these for kayaking. For the most of the first summer using them they were water proof as long as the water didn't go above the sock. By the end of the summer they were no longer water proof. Switched to gortex socks which keep my feet dry but there shorter so I really have to watch not to step to deep into the water when launching kayak. So they didn't last and would not buy another pair. Ordered some Reed Aquatherm wading socks from England, hope they do better.

                      I purchased two pairs of these socks for a winter grand canyon trip and I am SO GLAD that I did. Also ordered a neoprene pair. Didn't get the neo ones out the entire time but rotated both of these pairs. They are an absolute must for any winter water trip. They do keep water out (with the exception of full immersion/unintentional swims) but seemed to have some moisture at the end of the day, likely from sweat. Important to hang them inside out for maximum drying-ability. I would purchase these again in a heartbeat. The size was slightly big but still worked with my sandals and dry pants. I wore one pair of medium weight wool socks under these. Feet were still cold and moving around helped but three weeks in mid 30 temps will do that.
