    Hydropel

    I know, I know. Less likely than my last request for some 2nd hand cuben.... but anybody out there got any Hydropel they're willing to part with?

    Good luck trying to find some. I switched to SportSlick some time ago from Hydropel, and so far I've been pretty happy.

    Have been using the Body Glide at half the cost for blister prevention and just about out. I've found the BG in a stick form but not the cream yet.

    Yeah, I like bodyglide too, use it for every trip to the gym for chafing. But, for my footies specifically, I've found nothing better than hydropel.

    The whole thing about hydropel is the wet weather foot protection right?
    I have zero issues with blisters in dry conditions, but I am all ears for the wet weather treatments..

    Just a suggestion, but I've used Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel and had really excellent results. It has the same main ingredient as Hydropel, but it feels drier (Hydropel feels sticky to me).

    Good luck!

    Hydropel

    I'm hanging on to my last tube of Hydropel since they've discontinued it.
    Interested to see what other products have been effective for wet foot conditions.
