REVIEW: Dirk Wheaton
'A bit over a year ago I started training in earnest for a long
walk that I
am taking later this year, the Camino de Santiago.
Once I began
getting some serious hours up in daily and
weekend walks I started t
o refine my options for clothing,
shoes and of course, my socks.
Apart from the obvious
decisions about comfort, the socks needed to be
merino wool as
they appear to be the only type of sock that can be washed
at night
and be ready to wear the next morning. This is important when I am
only taking two pairs of socks in total. When you are going to walk
for over
a month and plan for the total backpack weight including a
sleeping bag to
come in under 6 kilos, everything has to perform
well. There can be no
passengers.I bought some very well regarded
and highly priced brands, and all performed r
eally well for the shorter
walks or in any normal activity. But during summer, these fancied
brands often fell short as pounding the pavement for several
hours
in temperatures in the high 30’s showed the construction was not
suitable for softening feet in overheated conditions. One day I
ended up with
an imprint of a sock’s internal construction embedded
into my sole, and that was from a very well regarded brand.I started
to look at other varieties of merino socks and gave the Wilderness
‘Cape to Cape Light Hiker’ socks a try.

'Absolutely the best sock during all
conditions that my
reasonably extensive trialling came up with'.

Details

How do you make a great sock better?...knit Blister Free™ Profilen® yarn into the high abrasion toe and heel areas of the sock. 

Our new men's CAPE TO CAPE LIGHT HIKER eXtreme socks are the perfect companions for your hiking, climbing or walking adventures.

Why?

The men's CAPE TO CAPE LIGHT HIKER eXtreme utilize Wilderness Wear's Blister Free™ system, where friction free Profilen® fibres are knitted into the heel and toes areas, ensuring you enjoy blister-free running.

Our WildernessWool™ reduces unpleasant foot odours too, while the synthetic fibres extend durability. And the men's C2C will also impress with its fit. Thanks to the ergonomically, optimized 1/2 length sock height, which allows the cuff to sit perfectly below the calf muscle. The socks will fit perfectly without slipping down. Our SFS (Secure-Fit-System) prevents creasing and keeps the socks where they belong. There is also additional padding in the heel and toe area for good cushioning. Greater breathability is ensured by the webbing system that runs across the top of the foot area. This makes the men's C2C the ideal companion for your feet, whether on a casual walk or on demanding hikes. Light weight, all day comfort.

THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA

100% of the merino wool from this collection comes from Tasmania. The wool from this natural paradise is premium-quality and hard wearing. But just as important for us, this material is ethically and ecologically sound. We have very high expectations of the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.

EXP - Machine washable, chlorine free, total easy care.
