I don't swim well but I love to go kayaking. I leave the stocking off because I usually step out of the kayak and into shallow water. It is easier to get out when the kayak is in the water because my knee doesn't bend. The water is probably not clean and sometimes it is green near the shore. I am afraid that the stocking will hold dirty water against my skin. I clean and dry the skin then replace the stocking.
