Waterproof Wading Socks
A unique design. Longer in the leg than our popular aquatherm sock. Lightweight, tough, flexible, waterproof socks.
Calf length paddling socks that can be worn on their own or underneath watersports boots and sandals.
- Fully taped external seams.
- Amazing abrasion resistance.
- Let the Aquatherm take the rub and save your skin!
A must for sore footed playboaters, open canoeists and to prevent fin rub for divers and body boarders.
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 is less than a millimetre thick and 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.
Stepping into and out of your kayak is regularly linked to getting your feet wet especially if you like me don’t like big bulky boots that don’t really fit in the kayak.
I layer with inner wool socks according to temperature then my reed wading socks and finally choose a thinner or thicker neoprene shoe.
Pull up the wading sock and get in the kayak, and while paddling push down the wading sock toy our ankles if your to warm - Works perfectly!
One small development suggestion is to work on the heel seam placement, but no biggie.
Great product, Reed:ers!
