Review from a member of a North Georgia Adventure Race Team:
I wanted to thank you again for your support by providing my team with SealSkinz gear. Ufortunately the gloves were backordered but
the socks were invaluable. I worn them the entire race.
The started with a paddling section and I wore with my boat shoes which basicically is like wearing the socks exposed to the elements. For four hours my feet were in the water in the bottom of the boat or completely submerged when putting the boat in the and taking it out. I usually change socks after a paddle section but my feet felt dry and comfortable and I thought why change. I switch to my mountain biking shoes and started off on a 40 mile offroad trip in the rain. My feet never felt wet or cold even on long downhills where the wind usually makes my toes numb. Before heading off on the trek I decided to change out to another pair of
SealSkinz socks. When I removed the pair I had been wearing for the last 12 hours I was pleasently surprized that my feet were in great condition.
Usually after that kind of wet exposure my feet look like prunes and are suseptable to blistering because they are so soft from being wet. Not the
case here. Those socks were terriffic. I can't thank you enough for providing them.
