This Mid-calf-high waterproof sock is insulated with a liner made of expedition-weight double velour Polartec® Power Stretch™ fleece (7.3 oz. per square yard). The outside layer is knit of nylon/lycra® spandex offering a durable, flexible, stretch covering. In between the two fabric layers is our waterproof MVT membrane. These three layers are securely bonded together throughout. This combination of materials provides a very soft, comfy, warm, stretch-to-fit sock suitable for a whole host of cold, wet, nasty outdoor conditions. If you are outside in cold weather doing such activities as hunting, ice fishing, skiing, boating, and military service – you will be pleased with our New SealSkinz® ChillBlocker™ items.

SealSkinz® socks have a patented fabric structure of three highly engineered layers including a membrane capable of allowing perspiration to escape while not allowing water to penetrate. Each sock is high-pressure tested to make sure there are no leaks.
Care: Hand-wash and drip-dry for the greatest longevity. Do not twist or wring. Or machine wash on low temperature and tumble-dry on low. When machine drying, reverse socks halfway through the drying process.
POLARTEC® : THERMAL FABRICS
The primary insulation layer among experienced outdoor enthusiasts for nearly two decades, Polartec® fabrics are available in a variety of unique textures and weights designed specifically to enhance performance in a variety of environs.
Polartec® Power Stretch®
Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec® Power Stretch® keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:
1) The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor.
2) "Touch points" on the fabric inner surface draw moisture. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric where it spreads rapidly for evaporation.
3) When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton.
