Field Tests: We don't care what activities you are doing. Getting
your shoes and socks wet... which means having wet feet really sucks! So
sometimes it's better to be safe than sorry. TackleTour wore the SealSkinz
Water Blocker socks for different fishing application in various lakes and in
the icy cold rivers at Yosemite National Park.
You might think that having socks that are 100% waterproof and feeling
comfortable wearing them can't be possible, but Danalco was able to achieve
this. Wearing the SealSkinz Water Blocker socks is very similar to wearing
your everyday socks. The comfortable knitted material and good fit are
what makes these socks enjoyable to have on.
inner layer of the socks uses a material called Coolmax. Coolmax is not
only comfortable but plays an important role in keeping your feet dry.
This inner material is used to wick away moisture from your skin keeping your
feet dry and warm. Keeping your feet away from water is what the Water
Blockers are good at, and this means that you will be able to stay out and fish
longer than Anglers who have wet feet.
Water Blocker socks has an in-cuff seal that is used to block water from
entering over the top of the socks when it's fully submerged in the water.
You might think that the in-cuff seal would be a tight squeeze on your calves,
but that's not the case.
Like other SealSkinz products the Water Blocker socks are purely 100%
waterproof. Danalco's patented MVT technology that utilizes a 3-layer
system keeps the water out and your feet dry. When the socks are entirely
under water the Water Blocker's in-cuff seal prevents any water from entering from
the top. At first you will feel the water soaking at the top portion that
is located above the in-cuffs, but water is actually not getting through the
seal. One thing we did notice during our field tests is that if you have
skinny legs and the in-cuff seal is not as tight as it should be, then there's a
potential that water can get into your socks.
Water Blockers use an in-cuff seal to ensure that no water enters from the top
of the socks when it's fully submerged under water. The MVT materials does
a great job at being waterproof and breathable
though the MVT's 3-layer system prevents water from soaking through the socks it
still allows moisture to leave. We found that the socks are most
breathable when the outside temperature is cooler than inside the socks.
This is only logical since you probably wouldn't wear the socks on a hot day
anyways. While wading in the extreme cold water temperatures of the Merced
River in Yosemite National Park the SealSkinz Water Blocker socks kept our feet
dry by blocking water from coming through and extracting moisture from our skin.
To our amazement the SealSkinz Water Blocker socks showed good
durability while still remaining 100% waterproof. After wading in rivers
and wearing them normally in shoes or hiking boots, the socks bare little to no
damage. The only thing we noticed was slight stretching in the material,
but that won't affect the ability to block out water nor its ability to
breathe. Danalco's 3-layer system uses an outer layer made of Lycra
to increase durability and to prevent the loss of shape after extended usage.
waterproof socks are durable enough to be used to wade in the water without the
use of wading shoes. But of course if you want to prolong the life of your
socks even more, wearing wading shoes is recommended
Care: This is very important to assure
greatest longevity of the socks. Hand wash the socks and allow them to
drip dry. DO NOT twist or wring them. Machine wash on low
temperature and tumble dry on low. Remember to reverse the socks halfway
through when machine drying.
