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.

        Comments about Hanz Submerge Waterproof Socks - Closeout:

        Sock fell apart after first day e.g. stitching at calf came undone and membrane fell apart. I contacted NRS and the responded quickly. Sent NRS pictures of faulty product then they stopped emailing me re my claim.
        I wrote a negative review and still NRS won't let me post that.
        It is as if they want the bad review to go away.
        So what is the bigger issue the poor quality product or NRS ignoring warranty issues and poor reviews

              Q:

              I wear a women's 7.5US shoe. I don't think I will need socks under them since I don't winter kayak. I kayak in 3 seasons in the rivers of Virginia and in the Atlantic Ocean sound off near the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Suggestions as to whether I should the socks size up or down? Thanks!

                Definitely size down. Especially if you plan to wear them with water shoes. I wear a 7.5 extra wide shoe and these are very roomy on me.

                A:

                Lankz, the socks have two layers of woven material with a waterproof/breathable membrane sandwiched between them. If you take proper care of them, hand washing and never wringing them dry they should hold up well. The membrane is the only vulnerable part of the sock.

              Q:

              Do these socks insulate well in addition to being waterproof? i.e. can I use them as single-layer dry socks (or alone underneath appropriate boots) for winter paddling and riverboarding? The latter would really put them to the test

                I just love my waterproof socks, but being in Australia, all be it in Canberra which is cold by Australian standards, but still it does not get all that cold so my feet do sweat a little bit and by the end of the paddle they feel a bit damp but not cold. I'll use a thin sock as a liner next winter which I think will do the trick. The long ones are a must though.

                I got to use these once before our weather turned bad. I used them as a single layer and they were fine considering that it was not very cold. I had the feeling that they were wet inside when we finished but found that they were totally dry inside. I think that an insulating sock (wool or similar) under the Hanz would work better than the Hanz alone.

                A:

                The socks consist of two thin woven fabric layers sandwiching a waterproof/breathable membrane. They will certainly provide some insulation, but especially with the riverboarding where they'd be continually immersed, I don't think you'd find them adequate. Check out the answers to the other question about these socks where users describe systems of layering with them.

                I would try them in winter without a liner sock, and if it is too cold,
                then use a liner.

                A:

                you'd want an outer boot/bootie, or shoe to protect the sock .....that by
                itself might suffice for paddling .... riverboarding will probably require
                an additional wool sock. Both my wife ( always cold ) and I have found these
                to be waterproof as advertised ... mine got stolen up in Acadia this past
                fall ( go figure ...stinky used sox sitting on the hood of the car in the
                sun ) and I replaced them immediately because they worked so well in the
                cold water off the coast of Maine.

              Q:

              I want to use these socks as the "shell" of my sock layering during cold weather paddling. I'm looking for a sock that is waterproof AND breathable. I plan to wear a pair of liner socks with a pair of wool thermal socks over those. I'd like a pair of breathable waterproof socks as the outermost layer to keep everything underneath warm and dry. I will wear water shoes over these when paddling. Two questions: 1). Will these waterproof socks work for what I have described?; 2). I wear a size 9.5 men's shoe. With a pair of Carhartt Liner Socks and a pair of Dickies Thermal Wool socks, what size Hanz Submerge Waterproof socks should I get to wear over the others? Will the large (10-11 men's size) be too tight? Or should I move up to the XL (11-12 men's size)?

                i would try the xl, as i use the l for a 9.5 shoe and it just takes a thin

                A:

                I think they would probably work. They are breathable, and the top of the sock keeps water out, unlike some other waterproof socks.
                I don't know about the sizing and layering, though. The foot of the sock is fairly roomy, but the top of the sock is more snug since it is meant to be watertight. I think going up a size will be a good idea if your socks are all fairly tall.

                A:

                I bought these for a September paddling trip out of Telegraph Cove, B.C. and did not find them useful. The waterproof membrane stops at the blue line about halfway up the top of the sock so your feet are wet if you get in or out of the kayak in more than 6 inches of water. Even for the short period of time I used them, they did not seem very breathable. For my trip the weather was not bad; never below the high 40's and I was perfectly comfortable with thin polyester socks that dried quickly and waterproof sandals. The water temp was about 40 so my feet were wet whenever I got in or out of the kayak but wouldn't be a hardship unless you were standing in the water for an extended period. If you will be in really cold weather, I would go with over the calf kayaking socks or boots that are waterproof all the way to the top.
                Hope this is useful,
                Joe

                I purchased these for use in the Australian East Coast winter. I needed a minimum calf length waterproof sock purely to keep my feet dry when shore launching my Kayak to do some fishing.
                They are perfect for this and I have spent many hours fishing with dry feet.They have enough stretch in them to wear liners etc if the need arose.

                The sock is pretty spacious. I have a size 11 foot and purchased the Large. Just used them yesterday; had Wigwan wool socks under them, but these are not too thick; there was plenty of room.

                Hi,
                 
                These socks will stay dry if you shave the hair off your leg and don't have excessive movements ... used them last month in Quetico and they were great.  Initial stream walking they were nice and dry but when it got rocky with tripping/almost falling type terrain in water, the water entered but you didn't really notice, still felt good and warm.  This was in deep water well over the top of the sock ... any shallow water nothing entered, used these inside the NRS water work boot - fantastic! 
                 
                On sizing, I would go with the 11-12 so the top "sealing" portion does not stretch too much, that's the important seal.  These are not real thick so even if they bunched a little, it should be good.
