I got a couple of these to try out instead of the usual felt bags I use as they were cheaper alternatives. These are very easy to clean under a tap and seem to trap just as much crud from my tank as the felt ones, although time will tell I guess. Not the strongest construction but if they last a few months then they are worth the money.

Yes they don't filter as much as the felt, but cleaning these are the reason I have changed. It literally takes me less than 5 minutes to take the sock out and rinse it. Done!
The Felt socks do filter more but talk about a pita to clean. I keep my felt socks for deep cleaning of the tank. I put them on before I stir everything up in the DT and sump.

This does exactly what I wanted it to. Catches the big stuff without clogging. I use it on the outlet of my skimmer to break bubbles as well as on my drain into the sump. I use felt socks when I clean the tank, but they clog too fast for everyday use. These socks reduce my weekly maintenance and don't turn into nitrate factories.

These socks are the best. I used to use felt but they got clogged after two days. When these fill up, all I do is quickly wash them under running water and they are ready to be reused! Awesome!

Great price. The filter sock is effective and is much easier to clean than the felt socks. We'll see how durable it is over time...

My first time using them, wanted to try something new amd they are awesome. I wont run an aquarium without them. And the brs sock holders are really good too. I recommend to everyone.

I have been using felt filter socks for a cpl years and they filter great, but cleaning them is such a hassle. I doubt these mesh socks filter as well as the felt, but they are so easy to clean. From now on I will only use these mesh socks. I will ordering more of them soon.

Catches the bigger particles only, which means it doesn't work as well as the felt...but you don't have to change them as often which is good when your tank just isn't that dirty.

Great sock at a great price. I paired this up with brs filter sock mount and it fits like a glove. I recommend it to everyone. Filter sock do a great job at collecting particles. If you go with just a filter pad some debris will make it past the pads. If you use a sock nothing get by. This is ideal in a reef aquarium where u need to keep water pristine.

mesh sock By flipper on 12/3/2012

The sock for me is good for starting up a tank. It will catch the big stuff but wont clog up from the small particals, like silt from live sand at start up. It also works well with holding media. Other then that is doesnt do much more..

This things work really good at catching particles and are easy to clean out. My only concern was the smell they had when i first opened them... Im sure its normal, but i aired it outside for the day just to make sure that it wasn't going to hurt anything in my tank....
But overall another great product for BFS!
Clean out easy By Jay on 9/8/2012

These clean out better than the felt kind of sock, the water clarity seemed equal using both kinds of socks. The stood up to multiple cleaning cycles in the washing machine unlike the felt type socks
A single sock that I love even more than the pair of socks I use for my feet! By Jeffrey on 7/4/2012
Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friend
Never used felt socks before, yet. But these mesh socks catches a lot of crap and are super easy to remove and clean. I just dunk it in a bucket of rodi water, flip it inside out and dunk some more while squeezing the excess out. Done in a few minutes and reinstall!! I may try out a felt sock and or buy a second mesh because I like them so much and are cheaper than the LFS!!

Well made and does what it should. With the BRS quantity discount, it's worth keeping a few on hand for maintenance tasks.

these filter socks are a great alternative to felt. i won't pretend they filter the same but would say there is little difference. the trade off is they are much easier to clean so it makes change overs very easy so they are done more often.
Works great as a splash diffuser By Tony on 6/6/2012
Tony would recommend this product to a friend
Great value (got 5 in order to get better discount) I am using these as a splash diffuser on my protein skimmer, which has a return that can create quite a bit of salt creep if left un-diffused. This sock softens return splash and is easy to clean.

Better than felt By Bradley on 4/26/2012

These socks seem to work just as well as my felt ones do but they are much easier to clean. I'm sure the felt catches more but it clogs more often, which is a trade off I can live with.
