Running in cold weather isn’t always fun. Runners have learned that wearing several layers of clothing offers the best protection. But getting dressed in layers of warm clothing inside a warm house often causes one to perspire. Starting a cold weather run with damp clothing means that the runner will get cold – quickly!
In cold or freezing temperatures, moisture is the skin’s worst enemy. Moisture pulls heat away from the skin 23 times faster than air, and can reduce skin temperature so rapidly that wet feet feel painfully cold. Wet skin makes the feet much more susceptible not only to frostbite, but also to blisters.
The Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks have a special Dual Layer Moisture Removal System. This system instantly moves moisture from the skin, through the inner Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer, keeping feet dry. Staying dry is critical to remaining warm & comfortable in cold weather.
Drymax is the least thermally conductive fiber. This means Drymax fibers keep feet warmer because they draw less heat away from the skin.

Cold Weather Running socks are knit with Hollow Core polyester fibers on the outside to increase the insulation factor. Due to the wind chill factor, the front part of the leg tends to get the coldest; therefore a third layer of Drymax fiber insulation was added along the leading edge of the sock.
The Cold Weather Running Sock is a High Density protective padded sock. Dense padding is used as opposed to thick padding, as it protects feet without adversely affecting the fit of the shoes. Cold Weather Running Socks were designed for use in cold to cool conditions, keeping feet dry, comfortable and odor free.
