Ordered up a size

Reading other reviews, I ordered up a size as I am kind of in between. I wear a 9.5, and went with a large (size 10-11). Perfect fit, I wouldnt want them any tighter. Seems like a great product. Comfortable against skin. I have not worn them fishing yet, still have a few more months until wet wading season. Still wading in snow runoff, so the Swi...

For reference, I would say the booties on the waders that fit shoe size 9-11 are bigger than the size large Yulex wading socks with gravel guard. I have a little extra room in the booties while wearing thick wool socks, and the wading socks fit great without too much extra room against the skin.

Compared to Simms Guard Socks

If you're reading reviews here you're most likely interested in how these compare with the Simms Guard Socks. I have both and can tell you: These are much more comfortable on bare feet. The Simms have noticeable seams on the inside. A small downside of these is that Patagonia prints stuff on the inside of the sock. So if you pull it up fo... Read Morer really cold days, you see that print. Not a big deal, but not really thought through. The Simms might have a slightly softer cushiony feel, but we're talking small. These Patagonias are great. Just used them last night on the South Holston in cold water and fast current while reeling in a 20+ inch brown.

Not worth it

To start with they run small. Also, do they really need all that writing on them? Sometimes you keep the sock pulled all the way up and it looks like you are wearing a billboard of cleaning directions. They need to be longer also, so it covers more of the boot and the laces. I wear the Patagonia wading boots and they just dont match up well in cove... Read Morerage. I can barely get them to cover the top of the boot.

I love these for wet wading.

I loved these so much I bought an additional pair for my Son. These are great for wet wading in rivers where you need the traction and/or stability of your fishing boots. They work perfectly with my Patagonia-Danner boots.

Cant believe Ive waited this long!

Super comfortable. Ive literally worn these wet wade fishing 8 hours a day. Last weekend I did some stream clean up and path clearing. Wet or dry, in the stream or on land These are as comfortable as wearing your favourite sneakers!

Gravel guard hook tearing off and leaving a hole in the neoprene

Not sure if this is due to user error but the webbing, with the hook that attaches to the wading boot, is tearing off of the neoprene sock and leaving a hole. This is happening just after 3 days of fishing. Needless to say I am very disappointed, these wading socks do not back up Patagonia's reputation for making quality equipment.
