Travelproof Leech Socks
Top Customer Reviews
LMC's tip: wear a wide-brimmed hat.
If you're that squeamish about leeches, then remember that the jungle will have many, many other creatures that will try and bite you, suck your blood, give you nasty diseases or parasites, or just punish you for being there. Probably best you don't go if such things bother you that much.
Note that my review is only based on S East Asian jungles. Other places may benefit greatly from the use of these socks.
Yes, they fit as expected on my wife (I ordered a different pair for tall adults) and thye are great except for the fact that they are BLUE; talk about wearing a big label that shouts TOURIST then this is it! What about khaki or even camouflage pattern? Tsk, tsk.
I can't actually prove that they work but given they are an all-in-one sock that you put on before putting on your walking boots I can't see how the leeches could ever get in. It also has a draw cord to stop them falling down, which would also prevent leeches working their way down the inside.
Of course leeches are no respecters of what you wear and last time they just ended up under my shirt and feasted leaving me blood-soaked and bleeding from the wound for hours so this time I'm wearing an Amazon-supplied Craghopppers Nozilife long sleeved shirt to see if this defeats them.
As leech socks go these are fine and if they were a different colour would get the full five stars!

Says one size fits all, I'm tall and they're a bit short. Did not encounter as many leeches as anticipated so a bit of a waste.Published on 20 Dec. 2014 by Jonathan
They kept on falling down from above the knee. The elastic fastening broke after only wearing a couple of times.Published on 3 Feb. 2014 by Mary Newman
These are long and thick enough to withstand the worst of jungle situations. They wash well. But the toggles on my pair came off the first day of use. Read morePublished on 6 Jan. 2014 by Badgerhugger
