- Great for wet wadding Review by Chris
OverallThese socks are great for summer wet wadding. Bought a pair and used them all the time last summer. The one issue I have is that unlike a few of the other fishermen to post reviews, I have chicken legs. For me with a size 11.5 shoe, the ankle is too loose, which causes the inside to fill up with water making it tough to walk on land because the neoprene isn't permeable so the water doesn't drain out. I'd suggest either installing vents or using a permeable neoprene material like a wet suit.

- Too tight Review by Altazor
OverallI concur with the first "too tight" review. My pair fits my feet just fine but is way too constricting on the lower leg/shin/calf area. I, too, believe that the older guard sock design is much better and way more comfortable.
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thanks Altazor. We'll pass the info on to the product team.

- All I Need in the Summer Review by JRS
OverallI got these socks last summer and they were perfect for hot Montana days. They fit perfectly to my feet paired with Simms cotton wet wading socks (although I cannot imagine trying to shove big wool socks in these; that neoprene keeps my feet fine plenty warm). Even in the colder alpine streams, my feet were warm enough and I didn't even notice. I look forward to when I can hang up the waders for good again and put these on!

- Your Better Try Them on First! Review by Too Tight
OverallI bought the 10-12 size and they are WAY too tight and difficult to pull on over my size 10.5 feet with a thicker sock which is what I prefer to wear. The old version Guard Sock fit just fine. They are also very tight around the area above the ankle.
I'm getting rid of them and selling them on eBay!

- These are fantastic! Perfect for wet wading! Review by SherpaB
OverallI wet wade a lot here in the Colorado Summer. I had been making do with heavy wool socks for my whole life. I just got sick and tired of dirt and small stuff getting in my boots so I poked around and found these. They fill up the boot and the guard keeps all of the junk out. Also they do keep your feet warmer like a wetsuit keeps your body warmer even though its wet. They go on and off easily too. I wish I got some of these years ago. Dont wait just get a pair and enjoy wet wading until it gets cold and then get the goretex Simms going again.

- Awesome! Review by Stix
OverallBought the large (I'm size 10.5 normally) for wet wading and these are great...much like everything else from Simms. The hook to the boot doesn't really stay fastened throughout the morning/evening, but could be a user error...in any event, it didn't impede anything so it didn't bother me a bit. I wear Rivertek Boa boots. Highest recommendation.

- Wet wading Review by ICHI
OverallI ordered with hesitation because there are other brands. I wanted to wet wade when I first heard there's products for it. Do not think twice about these if your looking to wet wade. They kept my feet dry, I couldn't believe it, I was expecting to have wet socks and wet feet. On my second try with these I use wool socks and Simms boa boots,I waded past the tops of the gravel guards and then I had wet socks and feet. I did order the wet wading socks also, can't wait to try em. Comfort with these is outstanding. I ordered large for size 12 boot.
