Rating: Henderson Polyolefin Hot Dive Socks Black
Reviewer: Di A.  -  View all my reviews
I must say Im nicely surprised at how good a job this polyolefin material does in keeping my feet warm and protecting them from chaffs caused by constant contact with the rubber of my fins. They feel nice under my 2mm Low Top Soft Sole Dive Boots too!

Rating: Hot Socks Rock
Reviewer: Patricia L.
I just returned from a trip and used these socks for the 1st time. I love them, they fit well and I didnt need to add any weight because of them. They kept my feet warm and arent too thick like the last ones I had. I liked them so much I bought another pair.

Reviewer: Sam Newkirk  -  View all my reviews
I ordered these socks based upon recommendations from Scuba. My shoe size is 8.5 and, so I ordered the larger 9-10 fin. These socks will work weel to make the fins fit more snug. I have not used them in water yet, but I will in April.

Rating: polyfin hot socks
Reviewer: Jeffrey G.  -  View all my reviews
These socks worked well in warm water as protection against irritation from full foot fins. I suspect they will provide significant additional warmth with booties in a cold-water environment and have heard this is the case from a friend who uses them.

Rating: Great Cold Water Socks!!!
Reviewer: Peter W.
These were great socks to wear diving in sub 41* water in the local quarry in December. I bought them after my first Deco training dive and they really came through for me during the next few weekends, allowing me to focus on my training needs. I could use a shirt made of this material to wear under my wet suit.

Rating: Warm and dry socks
Reviewer: Ruth E G.  -  View all my reviews
I purchased these socks to take with me on my recent trip (08-22-08) to the Galapagos to use when we snorkeled. I looked silly wearing these with my knee length spring suit, however, they did the job by keeping my feet dry and warm while I snorkeled. I loved these socks. I also purchased a hood that worked perfectly. I now want to buy gloves for my hands and a full body suit. Btw-snorkeling around the Galapagos islands was amazing. Our favorite was snorkeling with penguins, sea lions, rays blue footed boobies and an abundance of fish around Pinnacle Rock!

Rating: great socks
Reviewer: Adam H.  -  View all my reviews
i really like these socks, they fit well inside my flippers and eliminated any rubbing of my foot against rubber. They stay up too which a regular cloth sock wont do when swimming. Also worked good for us when we were playing in the waves in hawaii, kept the little stones from hurting my foot. I would buy them again.

Rating: Good socks
Reviewer: Matti S.  -  View all my reviews
Work great great in full foot fins if you tend to develo hot spots and protect the upper part of heel against sun on the surfase. That part tends to be exposed between dive skin and fin. With the socks thats one less spot to smear stinky sun screen on. The socks tend to go around on the boat, though, I started with one pair and now have five socks, none of them originals.

Bought for extra warmth under boots and they certainly do that without making boots that fit too tight. Although the sox are just tubes, they stretch to fit perfectly.

Rating: Not really stretchable
Reviewer: Leonard Ng
Managed to put it on, but after removing it, its stretched a bit, expecially at the opening area. Basically, its nice, but i dont like the "after wear" shape. it doesnt shrink back to original shape at the open area.

Reviewer: James H.  -  View all my reviews
Nice and light but warm. I dove in the Great Lakes in April wearing these. My dive computer registered a water temperature of 44 degrees and I didnt even feel it on my feet. Makes getting those boots on and off a breeze too! Just the right fit for me (I wear mens size 10 shoes).

Rating: Great product but no one size fits all
Reviewer: Mark G.
I used the hot socks with closed heal fins and they worked great. Only bad thing is getting them off and one. I wear a 10.5 shoe and one size does not fit all. It takes forever to get them on. If your feet are wet it is almost impossible. Would love to see the same product shaped like a real sock.

Reviewer: Justin Stuart  -  View all my reviews
These socks are pretty nice. they keep your feet a bit warmer when worn under booties. i wear mine under 7mm. but big warning: ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL! i have a size 11 foot and i can BARELY squeeze into these socks comfortably. if you have a bigger foot you probably wont fit. but no worries, scuba.com is fantastic on returns!

Rating: These do the job
Reviewer: John S.  -  View all my reviews
I am not a typical scuba person. I like to work out in my pool even when the water is cold. I had a pair of boots, but they were simply not keeping my feet warm enough. I bought these socks to go with the boots, and they make a tremendous difference. With these plus the boots, my feet have stayed quite warm. Excellent product that does the job for me!

Rating: Socks fit is odd
Reviewer: Tim Welsh  -  View all my reviews
The sock has no heel in it so it fits odd. Did not notice any discomfort from them but they ARE inexpensive. Ill keep wearing them and they do help keep your feet warmer than without them in your boots.

Reviewer: catherine logan  -  View all my reviews
One size does not fit all, but they are still nice. I am a womans size 8 and my husband is a mans size 9. We were both able to wear, but they are a little tight. They dont stretch as much as lycra/neoprene. Still a very nice product.

Reviewer: Robert Johnson  -  View all my reviews
I dive cold water mostly. My feet were steaming when I took my boots off. Not only that but I got a better fit with my boots with these on. Who needs cold feet, these are the perfect solution to your feet getting cold on cold water dives.
