For complete weather protection these socks are made with 2 layer Tempest fabric and fully taped outer shells. The full-length rear zip makes for easy entry. This long-length version of our Omega socks provides extra insulation to the lower leg resulting in even warmer feet.

Also available in 'standard' (ankle 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 spent a lot of the time in the tent with my feet down in a hole, cooking. It is a lot colder than having the feet up on the sleeping mat. The down booties kept my feet toasty and warm. They are light with a solid zip. 10 out of 10 for PHD."
— Robert Swan (OBE, FRGS) the first person to walk to both Poles.

"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."
