I was kindly asked if I would like to try these waterproof socks by 360Dry, and as I had not had any luck with waterproof socks in the past, then I wanted to give them a go. They are made from ethically sourced Merino wool and, combined with a terry towelling layer, makes them extremely comfortable. In addition, they are calf-length which I found really handy when the terrain was particularly muddy and deep.
In fact, even though the terrain I tested them on was muddy and deep, my feet were not getting wet. So, to really put them to the test, I took my boots off and stood for over 5 minutes in a lake. It was the strangest sensation. My brain knew my feet were in the water, yet they were not getting wet even after 5 minutes of being completely submerged and battered by the waves. I cannot rate these socks any higher. They are super comfy, completely waterproof, did not cause my feet to sweat too much and overall a fantastic and essential addition to my backpack. In fact, I will be buying some more as I need more than one pair for muti-day hikes etc.
The socks are currently retailing at £30.99 and come in three sizes Small (UK sizes 4-7), Medium (8-10) and Large (11-14). They also do an ankle-length, more lightweight version. Please check out their website at www.360dry.co.uk
