Sealskinz® Mid-Weight Mid-Length Waterproof Socks
Awesome...So Far, So Good!
I originally bought these to help keep my feet warm while mountain biking (which I have not had a chance to use for this purpose). However, this past weekend I completed an 11 mile race through mud, slush, snow, and water in 40 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. As I get cold easily, I cannot express enough how happy and excited I was to have warm, dry feet at the end of the race. (I ordered the medium size which was perfect for wearing a thin pair of woolies underneath.)

Better than expected
I havent used it for my trail running but I know it will perform as expected. I have it ready for use and I poured water over them and they stayed dry!

Keeping feet warm and dry is the key!
I had heard lots of great things about Sealskinz and finally recieved a pair for Christmas. First thing I noticed is they don't quite fit like most socks. More like a slipper, I suppose. With a foot that normally fits a 9 1/2 (US) shoe, the Large seemed a bit too big initially. However they stay in place quite well. With temps in the upper 30s F, they kept me plenty warm while cycling - in fact, warm enough my toes were a bit damp from sweat. And when the socks got wet from the outside I could tell that the outer layer was wet but my feet were actually quite dry and warm.
The fact that they seem a little loose is fine. As the temperature drops to the mid-upper 20s I was able to wear a liner sock with these and they fit just fine. With over two hours in the wind on a bicycle, my feet were plenty warm without any shoe covers.
I'm looking forward to wearing these hiking and it looks like these socks will be perfect for Cyclocross season.
