Bridgedale says it has identified a growing demand for non-wool warm weather socks, and is focusing on its non-wool Warm Weather Hike collection for Spring 2019.
Adding to its Hike Lightweight Coolmax Comfort style, made by combining Coolmax with Cotton yarns, SS19 will see the introduction of new Coolmax styles, giving Bridgedale a full range of wool, non-wool and waterproof socks
Coolmax is well known as an effective warm weather yarn being quick drying, highly breathable and boasting good wicking, and thermo regulation properties. The socks also have a soft feel making them comfortable all day long. Fusion Tech brings together Coolmax with technical synthetic fibres in a knit to provide a thin, close supportive fit with targeted T2 padding, balanced insulation and durability.
Suitable for hikes similar to the Coast to Coast, Camino de Santiago, or the Appalachian Trail AT, the new styles include Lightweight and Ultralight with men’s and women’s specific FIT. Highlights include the men’s and women’s Ultralight Boot length HIKE Lightweight T2, Coolmax Performance, Boot length, and men’s and women’s Ultralight Low Cut – HIKE Ultralight T2, Coolmax Performance, Low cut.
