"I've worn the Mera Down Socks on the last few camps when sitting in the tent, and as it's been below zero in the tent every time, they've been fantastic.

"I used them in the evenings during the trek - they were very warm and it was a bit of luxury to pull them on after 9 hours of walking."
Graham Brothwood, 9 day camping trip to Langtang Valley (Nepal) up to 3,840 metres.

"I've kept them on when I've got into the bag, but never for long, too damned warm. They're nicely made and very simple, 180g, with box wall baffles and a simple drawcord at the ankle. The fabric is good enough for a quick nip outside for a pee if it's not wet; frozen or dry-ish ground is fine.

"Genius [piece] of kit these. There are more technical PHD models available, and for expedition or harder use they'd be the choice, but for a balance of performance and light weight, the Mera Socks ... are the ultimate joy bringers."
Petesy (Peter Macfarlane).
