Use VAPOR BARRIER
SOCKS for extra warmth on very cold day
trips, multiple day alpine climbs and cold
weather expeditions to protect your thermal
socks from becoming saturated with sweat.
Urethane coated medical grade 70d Nylon
taffeta VB SOCKS take up zero room and can
be worn between a liner sock and your favorite
hiking, trekking or expedition weight sock.
VBS are streamlined and well fitted for
greater comfort and less "bunching"
or slippage. We put the seams around the
perimeter of the sock, rather then under
foot for less irritation and greater comfort.
Use in your approach shoes (for wet conditions)
and also in single mountain boots and double
expedition boots. We sew our VAPOR BARRIER
SOCKS with a special polyester thread that
swells up to block most perspiration from
escaping - without the extra bulk, cost
or discomfort of seam tape. Top opening
is folded over and regulated by low profile
hook and loop closure. The "hook"
side helps hold up socks. Gone is the bulk,
elastic & cord (that soak up moisture)
and plastic cord lock that can irritate
in previous models. For extended periods
or maintaining relations with tent mates,
try some strong antiperspirant or foot powder
to further control sweat and increase comfort.
Easily washed in the field with cold water
& non detergent soap and air dried for
longevity. Carry a spare pair in your kit.
