The unique watertight cuff in Hanz Submerge Waterproof Socks ensures that your feet stay dry even if you wade in a little deeper than you planned. Great for canoeing, kayaking, rafting and SUP.
  • Innovative sealing cuff blocks water from entering at the top of this over-the-calf sock (see TIP below).
  • 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.
  • Designed to keep you dry during intermittent periods of wading in knee-high and deeper water - perfect for launching and landing your boat.
  • 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.
  • TIP: The in-cuff seal must be in continuously close contact with skin all the way around the calf to prevent water from entering the sock. Some causes of an unsuccessful seal are the interference of liner socks or hair, very slender calves relative to the socks size, or excessive perspiration.
  • Note: Hand-wash and drip-dry socks. Do not twist or wring socks, this will damage the waterproof, breathable membrane.

    Q:

    Does saltwater affect the performance, durability of Seal Skinz?

      A:

      I haven't seen any degradation due to salt water. I have used the
      sealSkinz socks for all of my Arctic and Antarctic trips and they still
      work great. I typically use a liner sock, the SealSkinz and then a Chota
      boot as the outer layer. The SealSkinz get wet every time we do a wet
      landing fro zodiacs but my liner sock has stayed dry (except for sweat).
      Hope that helps.

      I've had mine in salt water four or five times without any noticeable difference. That said, anything that spends any time in salt water gets a good cleaning at the end of the day.

      Lyle,
      I'd be more worried about punctures than the type of water. Rinse them really good and dry them. They will hold up.

      I have used my Seal Skinz socks in brackish water with no problems. When in brackish or salt water I always spray off my kayak and equipment with fresh water as soon as possible. That includes my socks and gloves.

    Q:

    I have a wound on my ankle and will these socks keep my feet and the wound dry if submerged in a pool

      A:

      I've found the socks to be extremely waterproof. The only way your wound
      will get wet is if your feet sweat. I've been using the waterproof socks
      as part of a system for my cold water adventures. I wear a liner sock, the
      waterproof socks and then a heavy neoprene portage shoe with a sole. My
      feet never get cold or wet except with sweat. Hope that helps.

      Better than nothing but remember they are not water proof. I would suggest still covering with a waterproof bandage and cleaning the wound with Hibiclens when out of the pool. Do it immediately upon drying off.

      A:

      These socks did not keep my feet dry, and the plastic lining tore after two
      uses. If you have a wound, use a proper dressing. I recommend ConvaTec's
      DuoDerm, if you can fit it into your budget. DuoDerm has been aggressively
      tested for immersion. Leave the bandage on until it falls off naturally
      (and beware the stink when it does), gently wash the wound and replace with
      another DuoDerm. BandAid brand bandages are as effective as not using any
      bandage, but the gauze promotes scarring. Bottom line: treat the wound!

      I wore these on a paddle board trip down the Ganges river in India.
      Possibly the most polluted body of water on the planet. I can assure you no
      water touched my feet. The seal skins worked great and my partners also
      used an nrs product that was more wet suit material. The seal skins are
      more sock like and give you more feeling when standing. Hope this helps. Jay

    Q:

    I would like to use SealSkinz to keep water in rather than out, or more accurately, to keep a dilute vinegar bath around my toes for a few hours at a time. Can they be used in this way? Would I want to turn the Sealskinz inside out so that the black outside is facing the water and the white liner is kept dry?

      yeah mate, the sealskinz are great for keeping your feet completely dry.....as far as your clandestine laboratory activities, i am sure the vinegar will be not to caustic on the black side only(white side in)
      they are pretty warm and sweaty, most likely creating your own pool of vinegar to soak your feet in. :) got choice on the seal skinz.
      they work for both me and my wife.

    I went kayaking on the Detroit River on New Years Eve...air temp was 34, water temp was hovering above freezing, as ice shelves were already forming on the banks. The launch area requires me to step in water up to calf level. I wore thermal socks as a base layer, and then these socks over them. Even in the freezing water, I couldn't feel the cold. Once I began paddling, my feet were toasty, but not too warm. 2 hours later, returning to shore, and removing the necessary layers, including these socks, I discovered my thermal socks were still as dry as they were when I initially put them on. We all know that once your feet get cold, it's only a matter of time before it works it's way up...well, rest assured, your feet will NOT be cold if you wear these!

    As a side note, the pair I own is rated at a Thermal Protection Level of H2. At first I was alarmed that since this was at the low end of the protection level, that maybe I ought not try this out in 32-33 degree water...well, H2 was perfect in these temps. Any higher on the scale, I would omit wearing thermal socks, and go from there.

    This is the second pair of SealSkinz I have purchased. They are waterproof as advertised, however they require care putting on and taking off. The inner liner does not completely cover the waterpoof membrane. My first pair delaminated and are no longer completlely waterproof. Now that I know they require extra care, hopefully this pair will last longer. Take a while to dry after washing. The best method I have found for drying them is to air dry the outside, turn them inside out and dry the inside. With care they work well, they just won't stand up to abuse. Hope this helps with your purchase decision.

        Comments about Hanz Submerge Waterproof Socks:

        Into a second hard season with a pair of these and they appear not to have any wear other than a single runaway thread that needs clipped. I have been exceptionally cautious in handling them which makes for quite the ritual changing out after a session but I think I take better care of ALL of my gear because of it! The inside membrane certainly looks delicate but wearing a liner sock under them permits them to be easily slipped off if they fit right.
