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. Made in California!
