I bought these socks in hopes that they would keep my feet dry. I am a caver, and bought these from a caving web site. I came out with my feet soaking wet and not from sweat, I wasn't hot at all. I bought the gloves also and I felt the water seeping in as soon as I put my hands in water. I don't know how they can claim what they do as these just plain don't work.

I contacted SealSkinz 3 days ago, I wrote them the next day also. I still haven't heard anything from them. Their web site said to 'please allow them 2 days'. These are guaranteed waterproof. So, I guess their customer service is moot also.

I wear a size 8.5 shoe and I needed the XL sock. The rest squexed the toes too much and were unwearable. I use these socks on my backpacking adventures into the deep dence alabama swamp. Wet feet lead to trench foot. With cotton or wool socks they do not dry well leading to blisters. Wet socks create more friction and are heavy.

Also the seal skin makes a great moccason. You don't need to carry crocks. Although I recomend being careful not to punch a hole in the goretex it is safe to walk around camp in these as long as you watch your step and avoid sharp rocks or 45 angle machete cut sticks. These are very adaquite for camp lounging. I don't like wearing boots when I don't have to. These work on frozen ground as well although you do feel some of the chill. But it is so light because they are your socks and you don't need crocks. This saves weight. I likee.

In conclusion I've walked 17 miles in mine and no blisters. It is safe to say this is an awesome backpacking sock.

I have had water up to my waist and no leaks.

You get what you pay for! You get the UBER SOCK!

This sock is thick enough so that you don't need gators. You don't feel the prickleys on your calves and ankles when you wear these. Once agian this saves weight.

They are worth the price. I have 2 pair and luv um. :)

awesome sock!

I purchased a pair of these to go under the trail runners I use to hike. They keep water out and seal well at the top. They are also good for layering with other, insulating socks for winter hiking.

You should note, though, that no product will keep your feet dry if they are continually submerged because you perspire (sweat) even if you are not hot, and this water cant evaporate through the membrane if your feet are submerged. This is true of Gortex, seal skinz, and everything else, including boots.

You should also note that if you step in cold water with little insulation, you may feel instantly "wet" simply from the cold.

These perform as well as possible and will exceed any reasonable expectations.

I work outside year round and am exposed to the weather (rain, sleet and snow). I must tread through water, snow, mud, creeks, etc. to get to a job-site. For me, there is nothing worse than working all day with wet feet. To solve that problem, I wear these Hanz waterproof socks inside my work-boots and they do a great job of keeping my feet dry. They do their job and allow me to do mine with some degree of comfort.

I have been wearing these socks for years and have seen the brand name go from Sealskinz to Hanz. But the product is identical and works the same. Only the name has changed. It is still the same great product which I highly recommend.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE NAME CHANGE FROM THE HANZ WEBSITE THAT YOU MIGHT FIND USEFUL:

WHY THE CHANGE?
“Made in the USA. It's important to us and to our customers – now, more than ever. Hanz Extremity Wear is committed to designing and manufacturing 100% of our products in the USA, while other manufacturers of waterproof socks and gloves have chosen to offshore their design and manufacturing.”

WILL THERE BE ANY CHANGE TO THE PRODUCT OR INVENTORY?
“There are no changes to the product. Only the name has changed. After we exhaust our existing stock (no later than February 21, 2013), any inventory replenishments will be shipped under the new Hanz brand. Even the packaging of the products is nearly identical so that they can be effectively merchandized together.”

I ordered this sock with the special cuff but all I got was the regular waterproof sock from Big Edge, which I already have. I can always use another pair of the regular waterproof sock, but it certainly doesn't give you the water seal promised by the product that I had ordered. I noticed that Big Edge was gracious enough to mis-label their the packaging, going right over the original label, although the top of the package clearly says "all season socks". The cuff seal is not there, so if you ordered the sock with a cuff seal and then were sent the wrong thing, you might have a water leakage problem. Since both the regular all seasonwaterproof sock and the SealSkinz with the In Cuff Seal in fact have a cuff, you could be misled into thinking that you have the one with the waterproof cuff. So, buyer beware. I'll keep the socks, as I said I can always use them, but it was disappointing to get the wrong one. Do NOT use Big Edge. The three stars I am giving is really a combination of 1 star for Big Edge and 5 stars for the regular sock (sans In Cuff Seal).
