Improvements over the old style

I have used the old style of full length sealskinz when on hiking trips. Not to keep my feet dry on the trail, but to keep them dry around camp. The old style did not breath well and if I wore them while doing anything more than lounging around, I would get sweat building up inside.

However, this ankle sized pair seems to be improved in a couple ways. One, they seem to go on easier. I don't know if they are stretchier, or just being shorter makes a difference. Two, they seem to breath better, but again I don't know if it is due to being shorter. Three, they feel better. They feel more like a sock and less like a bag over my foot.

I liked them enough that I got two pair.
