Dexshell Ultrathin waterproof socks review


Price as reviewed:


Every winter, in the quest to keep pinkies warmer and drier in the slop, my waterproof socks come out of retirement. Over the years, I’ve tried a few different brands and thicknesses and really rate these Dexshell Ultrathins.

With a Porelle membrane, they stay really waterproof, even when splashed and soaked all day long. The use of thinner materials and a streamlined cut is also welcome as they feel nice and supple and closer to a wearing a normal sock than a wetsuit boot. Breathability is excellent with way less boil-in-a-bag sweaty sensation. And thanks to their windproofing and lack of clamminess they actually keep feet as warm as most thicker models too.

A further bonus is the use of eco materials like biodegradable modal and bamboo yarns in the construction.


All told, the Ultrathins are my go-to (and highly recommended) waterproof socks for everything except freezing conditions.
