Last year I replaced the latex neck gasket on my dry suit. This year I replaced the latex socks. The wrist gaskets still look good. But the socks triggered some questions which I'd like to direct at the many experienced diy types on this forum. 1. Latex wrist and neck gaskets make sense, sealing against skin as they do. The integrated socks need not perform a gasket function; they need only be waterproof. Isn't there some other, more durable and waterproof material? 2. The selection of sock sizes is quite limited, unless some vendors allow special fitting. So small suits tend to all have the same sock size, medium suits all have the same sock size (different from the small suits I suppose), and so on. This is convenient and makes sense for the vendor, not so much for the buyer. I reluctantly accept that. Do special orders cost more for these already very spendy suits? 3. Even if I can special order a suit that makes my feet happy, why are replacement socks so limited? There are very few sock size choices, with each fitting a big range of foot sizes. My foot size is at the low end of a size range, so I can also use the suit for my Bozo the Clown outfit. My own solution is to maybe try a suit with ankle gaskets and forget the integrated booties. Then I need appropriate foot wear, but could pick a reasonable size.
