Description:

For complete weather protection these socks are made with 2 layer Tempest fabric and fully taped outer shells. Packing up to almost nothing, down socks can be a real boon on expeditions. And they'll double as mitts in a crisis.

Also available in 'long' (knee length).

As used by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the UK Reserve Forces' 7 Summits Team, the Extreme South team, and many others.

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: 160 gsm)

A technically advanced waterproof breathable material. 100% Nylon. Good abrasion and tear resistance, yet offering high flexibility for such a tough material.

"I went to Everest as leader of Jagged Globes' North Ridge Expedition; this expedition included Sir Ranulph Fiennes who I believe you also supplied with down gear. The expedition was successful in placing six out of nine clients on the top ... [The] down socks [you made] to wear on Everest ... worked perfectly and I will be using them again."
