  • Elasticated tops
  • Black inner for easy drying*****
  • Stuff sac

* Please note: we make our stuff sacs big enough to allow fairly easy stuffing rather than reducing clothing to the tightest minimum.

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.

Technical

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.

"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."
