The Ocean Hunter 1.5mm neoprene socks are the perfect product to protect your ankles from exposure to stingers and other similar marine life as well as providing comfort and minimise ankle chafing. In many water sports such as spearfishing, snorkelling and scuba diving wetsuit socks are worn to keep your feet warm in the same way that a wetsuit would. The neoprene material is impervious to water and acts as a skin of insulation trapping the wearer's body heat in. The wetsuit sock thickness is proportional to how much heat insulation it provides and thus to how cold the water which the user will be diving in.
Another use of the Ocean Hunter wetsuit socks is to pack your foot to fit the dive foot pocket perfectly. A lot of brands of fins do not have ½ sizes and do not go up in size in small amounts as shoes do. So with this in mind, if you put the fin on and you are in-between sizes you can use a thin or thicker wetsuit sock to pack it out for the perfect fit.
Where a wetsuit sock is worn with a wetsuit it is normally tucked into the leg of the wetsuit to minimise the loss of body heat and to keep foreign objects out such as sand and rocks.
