Description

Designed for fast moving expeditions to the highest levels or for any extreme cold weather venture where weight is at a premium, the Xeros pack up to almost nothing. Using Drishell fabric and a highly efficient lightweight construction these down socks can be a real boon on expeditions. And they'll double as mitts in a crisis.

Also available in length: long.

As used by Ben Saunders in the Serco TransArctic Expedition, Rosie Stancer, Rosie Swale Pope, in the Yukon Arctic Ultra, and by many others.

Included in Geographical Magazine's 'Ten of the best' list of essentials for keeping "the cold at bay".

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

900 Fillpower Down

European goose down of very high quality. A truly excellent down with large clusters, consistent quality and lively long-term performance. More on our down insulation.

Tough Waterproof Tempest outer fabric (weight: 160gsm)

A technically advanced waterproof breathable material. 100% Nylon. Good abrasion and tear resistance, yet offering high flexibility for such a tough material. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

Sizing

PHD Boots Sizing

These sizes are approximate, to the nearest half size, because down boots are roomy and soft by nature and exact sizings are meaningless.
