The Hydrophilic nonporous PU membrane transports perspiration to the outside via solid state diffusion meaning water molecules are carried through the physical membrane as it seeks to maintain heat and humidity equilibrium. This method of moisture transfer does not suffer from foreign object contamination such as mud, dirt and salts from sweat unlike the more common microporous membranes commonly found in waterproof clothing.FEATURES
- WATERPROOF & BREATHABLE - Membrane Breathability: Moisture permeability > 15,000g/sqm/24h (ASTM E96 BW) Membrane Waterproofness: Hydrostatic head > 10,000mm (JIS L 1092A)
- WINDPROOF - Prevents wind chill, the lowering of body temperature due to the passing flow of cool air across the skin, exacerbated when skin is wet.
- COMFORTABLE - The inner is primarily knit with Merino Wool, known for its anti-bacterial, anti-odour and moisture management properties to keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable.
- DURABLE - An extremely durable and long lasting outer sock protects the Waterproof Membrane against abrasion from the boot.
- PERFORMANCE FIT - Every course has LYCRA running through them giving StormSock stretch, making them easy to pull on and off and they won't fall down, giving a snug and comfortable fit.
- STRETCH - A stretch PU membrane together with a matrix lamination process bonds the three layers of StormSock together ensuring they have excellent stretch.
- FLAT TOE SEAM - An almost invisible hand-linked toe seam closes the toe boxes creating a comfortable, flat seam that doesn't create excess bulk and cause irritation.
- ELASTICATED ARCH - Keeps the sock locked in position. During wear this reduces the possibility of bunching and rucking insidethe shoe or boot which could cause irritation or blisters.
- SOCK LINERS - Bridgedale Thermal Liner Sock work with StormSock can significantly increase warmth and insulation and can decrease drying times.
