A bit sad I know, but thinking about asking inlaws for some socks,
Sealskinz ultra light bike socks ... anyone use them, are they waterproof, and do they last :?:

I love my sealskins, but if the water goes over the top they fill up and become a bit like a wetsuit sock! :D Still good though

True, but then at least (in my experience) it's nice warm water that just stays there!
