Aquatherm® fabric has been developed to enable wearers to remain warm and dry for sport or leisure, in a whole range of conditions. It is a lightweight fabric that offers great freedom of movement, far more so than with traditional, bulkier neoprene and woven garments.
It is essential that the garment is working with the athlete, unlike earlier neoprene fabrics, where the athlete is more often working against the garment. Aquatherm remains stable, flexible, strong and waterproof when fully flexed. Unlike neoprene, it has the added advantage of being watershedding and fast drying, so less temperature is lost from the wet outer shell through evaporation.

We wore these as wading socks on a trek of Patagonia. There were 40 or so river crossings of cold glacial runoff. We paired the soles with "Cheap water-shoes" to achieve a perfect ultralight, keep you feet from getting wet or frozen numb.
These make winter rowing so much better.
I wear these for launching a boat and they have saved my toes this winter. Much safer in a boat than wellies and easy to push down if you’re rowing hard and warming up. I love them
