I think every fisherman will agree: our worst enemy in winter is cold, wet feet. Whether you’re casting from a bank or paddling across your favorite lake, the dreaded soggy socks can lead to a very uncomfortable day on the water.

*The opinions expressed in this user-submitted review are those of the reviewer, and do not necessarily reflect the view of YakAngler.com.

The SealSkinz patented technology includes three-layer construction, and this particular sock has a Merino wool inner layer for extra warmth and comfort.

When I fish from my kayak in areas withoutlaunching facilities or boat ramps, I often have to enter the water to get into my kayak. I was astounded at just how dry my feet were after stepping into the cold water, and how quickly the outer layer of the sock dried.

This sock is designed for a calf-height fit, and I was impressed with how it kept its shape. My socks have been through the wash around 30 times, and are as firm and comfortable as the day I purchased them.

My SealSkinz socks are a mandatory item in my winter fishing arsenal, and I couldn’t imagine a winter yakking trip without them on my feet.

Stay tuned for a Sealskinz gloves review coming soon.
