Great for my intended purpose
Wanted / needed an extra wind barrier & insulation for winter bike commute. They fit the bill to a tee. A bit larger than I was expecting (sizing chart put me in a large, I wear a 42 shoe). They are ok with a liner, but next time I will get a medium.

Great boot liner for kayaking
Excellent sock for using as a surfing boot liner. I ordered the size 6-7 desipte the fact that I wear an 8 1/2. Fits nice and tight. Even fits (though borderline too tight) with a very thin polyprolene sock underneath (not really necessary but actually makes it easier to get this sock on and off). I would recommend that if you use a poly sock underneath, order your normal size; otherwise if it is your only sock and want it nice and snug, order 1 size down. Nice finish on the inside (typical Hydroskin). Recommend it over the 2mm NRS Neoprene Sock which I bought a few months (a good sock but not as good as this one).

Hydro Skin sock for barefoot running
I bought these for barefoot running. Thin enough to feel the ground and extra room in the toes to not be tight. Water stays off my feet and they stay warm even in the snow. Tight at the top (which is great for what they are designed for) next time I'll by the ones that end at that begin at the ankle, I'm sure to need new ones because of my off design use.

Great for under water shoes
These socks are warm and work great under water sandals. Also in the kayak they protect my heels. Great product. Got two pair one for me and one for my husband, he loves them too.

great inside water shoes
I wore these inside water shoes (Salomon Techamphibians) during the higher-altitude portions of a Philippine mountain backpack. They were great for extending the temperature range of my shoes, down to about 40 degrees F. Much colder, or with a lot of cold water, and I might go for the thicker version. I'll use them again next time. Much lighter than bringing another pair of shoes. These should be better known. I washed them inside out and had no odor issues.
