Friday Vid: How to Wash Your Gore-Tex
A short instructional video from Gore-Tex this week on how to wash and dry your rain wear, and how to reactivate the DWR finish. It's easy if you know how...
Britain's number one outdoor performance sock brand, Bridgedale, launches its first 100% waterproof sock range called StormSock.
Developed to provide wet weather protection and day long comfort, it combines Bridgedale's unique FusionTech™ with a HydroTech™ Waterproof, Breathable and Windproof membrane. The new StormSock range has been designed and tested to perform to the highest standards in the wettest conditions when hiking, biking or running.
Continuing to build on Bridgedale's century-long sock making heritage, the 100% Waterproof StormSock guarantees foot protection and comfort on the wettest trails. Even though Bridgedale has been keeping feet warm, dry and protected for many years, providing a good level of water resistance, this is the brand's first 100% Waterproof sock range.
Using the latest production processes, the StormSock combines advanced yarn technology with progressive design to ensure the waterproof, extremely breathable and windproof StormSock never lets down any outdoor enthusiast.
The StormSock is available in three sizes, Knee Length, Boot and Ankle:
The next-to-the-skin inner sock, made from up to 60% Merino Wool, that's renowned for its anti-bacterial and anti-odour properties, is combined with wicking synthetic fibres to deliver a stable temperature and move moisture from the skin's surface. The lining features a terry loop underfoot cushion that extends around both the toes and over the heel to ensure comfortable feet in wet conditions.
The three-layer construction features at its core, a Waterproof, Breathable, high stretch and Windproof HydroTech™ permeable membrane, which when laminated to the inner and outer layers creates a 100% Waterproof stretchable and good fitting sock.
Bridgedale is confident that, after a three-year rigorous testing period, it can confidently guarantee the minimum specifications for the HydroTech™ membrane*:
Membrane breathability: moisture permeability >12,000mg/m*m/24h
Membrane waterproofness: Hydrostatic head >8,000mm
The Nylon outer protects the waterproof sock against abrasion from footwear. LYCRA® provides excellent stretch to ensure the sock is easy to pull on and off and guaranteeing a snug, comfortable, high performance fit and a sock that won't fall down during activities. As well as LYCRA® running through the inner and outer sock, it is also added around the arch of the foot to keep the sock firmly in position, reducing any bunching or rucking inside the shoe or boot that could cause irritation.
