This summer, I got the Solites in 5mm to try them out when the temps dipped. Super thin and I have to wear the socks that come with them. I forgot once and my feet slipped side to side in the boot (bad). I don't go without the socks now.
Soo, I picked up a pair of the 8mm Solites with the socks. Bought slightly smaller and did molding deal. Fit feels pretty good.
Spent 5 hours surfing a limestone Point yesterday, catch a wave/run back along the rocks. Feet were entirely toasty. Boots were stable and comfortable to wear.
I generally destroy a pair of booties within 8-10 sessions, wear a hole through the top of the big toe. These boots are reinforced across that area which is a welcomed relief. Have hopes that these will last this Winter.
I had the Solite 5 or 6mm before the thicker ones came out. I love the concept but my feet would freeze, I had the ditch them for some 5mm Drylock booties which are much warmer in New England waters (~40F +/-). Hopefully Solite improved but I would never buy them again.
Now that the waters here in the NE are in the 30s, any more feedback on how warm the 6mm Solites are? I have them (and have not worn them after water temps went lower than the 40s) but they seem too thin for this water temp. Any feedback?
