These Down Socks are made from your choice of lightweight nylon fabrics and 850+ fill power premium goose down (now treated with DownTek for water-resistance!). They have elastic ankle cuffs and come with a stuff sack.
20d - This ripstop nylon is the most durable fabric that I offer. It has a DWR treatment applied to the outside surface, so it will resist a small amount of water before allowing it to get the down inside wet.
Pertex Quantum GL - This is a brand name 10d fabric. It has a ripstop pattern and works well as a liner or a shell material. Slightly more plasticky feeling than my regular 10d.
10d - I have sourced some new material that has an amazing next-to-skin feel, is very light weight, but still has a DWR treatment and is 100% downproof! This makes it a great fabric for saving weight for both the liner or shell fabric.
Each pair of socks is stuffed with a varying amount of 850 fill power DownTek down. Check the chart below for the standard amount of fill for your size. You can add extra down for increased loft and warmth if you wish. Extra down fill is recommended but not required.
The following is an estimated temperature rating for the overfill levels:
The XS size is great for kids!
The weights below are for the 20d nylon, so the use of any other fabrics will result in lighter socks.
