I first became aware of the SealSkinz product at a SOFIC conference in Tampa. I was anxious to test out a pair and the folks at Danalco, in Duarte, CA, were accommodating enough to send me a pair. For reasons beyond my control I was not able to review them until now, which irritates me to no end. It’s a long story.
The overwhelming majority of SealSkinz reviews consist of the reviewer putting on a pair and dunking his or her foot in a bucket of water. Although one could draw some conclusion from that exercise, it’s not a real test of Danalco’s product. Furthermore, it does not come close to simulating military application of the socks.
In this review I assess the waterproofness of the SealSkinz and how well they function as socks worn in conjunction with military boots.
