The spikes really stimulate the skin and muscles, but are not painful. I have used this on direct skin and through thin clothing. No problems. Durable and does not squeak like another product I used. I really like this product.
It fits well, and is super warm. I typically don’t like the bulky feel of winter coats, but I can wear this one comfortably. I absolutely love this coat.
I just wore this coat to the mountain and it was perfect. I bought a medium and am 5'6, 145 lbs, carrying my weight around the middle. It is warm, has lots of water-proof pockets for essentials, and kept me dry all day while tubing and running around in the snow with my small kids. The fit was perfect, not too bulky.
Best pair of "water shoes" that I have had out of 7-8 different types!. Dried quickly once out of the water. Actually used them to hike for a short distance - only one problem the path was "stoned" with small stones that fit almost perfectly into the holes in the sole. At the end of the path I had to stop and remove about 20 small stones from the soles - but it wasn't really a big deal. Soles are so flexible that I just bent the shoe to allow the stones to fall out. Can't recommend them for hiking on paths with small stones, but short of that, I think that they are excellent and durable. I would definitely buy these shoes again. Very comfortable, well made and VERY light. Easy to wear for extended periods of time.
Easy on/off. These water shoes are very high quality. They are designed to let all of the water rush out of the bottom when you exit the water. I used to use Speedo brand shoes, but could not find them any longer. I have a wide foot, and these shoes stretched perfectly to fit me.
