It is what it is By cbsopp on 3/8/2013

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.
Awesome By Armando on 2/13/2013

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
flipper would recommend this product to a friend
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..
Good Product By Greg on 11/18/2012

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
Bradley would recommend this product to a friend
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.

Easy to clean By Kerric on 4/2/2012
Kerric would recommend this product to a friend
This sock is easy to clean but I wouldn't recommend it for catching the smallest particles. It says 200 micron just like the felt socks but doesn't catch as much debris so I have to assume it is passing by. The felt socks are better for mechanical filtration but I'd leave a mesh sock like this one on if you are going on vacation for a week or two. Catches large things like algae or critters.

Works Like it Should By Arteom on 2/18/2012
Arteom would recommend this product to a friend
It works like a filter sock should, it filters out small particles, yet keeps water moving.
It's a nice filter sock, but I'm a little disappointed because of the seam that runs along the sock, is not too great, the end of the twine that was used to sow the piece of mesh together untied a little for me & I had to use some super glue to keep it together and from untying further down the seam.
It not a big deal but for a six dollar (As of 2/2012) nano filter sock, I was hoping for a little better quality.
Better than felt By David on 2/13/2012

I like these much better than felt. The felt mesh is easier to install and change out. I am also able to get the mesh far cleaner. The felt socks got nasty pretty quick, i think that both are of high quality and performance but my preference is mesh.
Great filter sock By Brenton on 2/13/2012
Brenton would recommend this product to a friend
This sock works great compared to some others i have tried. Really seams to catch almost everything and is really built to last which is nice for those of us who like to wash filter socks and use them long term.
Awsome By Rocco on 2/5/2012

These filter socks work great. Catch the larger gunk and easy to clean so it doesn't become a nitrate spiker.
A necessity for any sump By Brian on 1/13/2012
Brian would recommend this product to a friend
I ran a sump without a filter sock for a year. It was a pain to clean and got nasty really fast. It's wayyy easier to change a sock every few days than to clean your sump out every few months.
These socks are made of a thin fine mesh. I have used felt socks before, and their material is much thicker and they catch more. If you want to wash a felt sock, it's much harder to get the particles out and much more difficult to turn the filter sock inside-out. I'd rather catch a little less debris and have it be easier to clean.
works well By Ryan on 12/30/2011

I went from having to clean my felt socks every 2 days to now every week with the mesh. Doesn't catch as much as the felt but works with my system.

Wish I took the Felt By Randolph on 12/13/2011
Randolph wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Decided to try out the Mesh, but after hooking it up I wished I had taken the Felt, I think the felt catches so much more and is far more quieter.
