First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

OMGear makes a lot of watersports products and their OMGear 3mm Water Socks are one of their bestsellers. They are really affordable, come in about a dozen different designs, and just as many size options. We think these are great and really, there isn’t much to criticize.

No, they are not meant to be worn on rocky surfaces (or at least not without dive boots over them), but they are nice for snorkeling and warm water diving as a layer between foot and fin. That’s what are meant for and they excel at that. If you snorkel or dive in exotic places and don’t want to bother with thicker boots (which also like to flood), these are perfect.

The OMGear 3mm Dive Socks are a great inexpensive yet convenient pair of neoprene socks that come in a lot of cool designs.
