  protect those drysuit socks!
  Posted by: NateHanson on Jan-26-14 5:24 PM (EST)

No matter what your drysuit socks are made of, there is no reason to ever wear them without paddle boots over them. You want to protect the material from wear, since this is the most likely spot to develop a leak.

And Kokatat says that even they can't retrofit goretex socks onto a suit with latex seals. So adding latex socks is your only option. I've done it on one suit, and it works great. Really no different than goretex socks. They are loose, not tight, with plenty of room for wool socks inside. And your feet can't breath inside a paddling boot anyways, so latex is just about as good as goretex.
