Point6 Podium Ultra Light Socks - $14.95

If you're of the mindset that Merino wool is strictly for cool temperatures, think again. Simply put, the fit and feel of Merino is undeniable, and just as importantly, it's highly adaptable to diverse climates. That's why Point6 employed it for its new Podium Ultra Light Socks. So, we ask you, why use synthetics that replicate Merino when you're able to have the real thing' Point6's Podium Ultra Light socks are made from imported Australian Merino wool. This material is non-abrasive, so Point6 was able to achieve the 'ultra light' status by not including any cushioning. However, the benefits don't stop there. Merino wool is what we call a 'hydrophilic' fiber, meaning that it has the natural ability to positively interact with water. In fact, Merino can absorb as much as 30 percent of its weight before exuding the sensation of wetness. Additionally, it's naturally antimicrobial, so you'll experience next to no stink from the socks. This property is furthered by Merino's natural ability to disperse electrostatic charges. So, the Podium socks will pick up less dirt, grime, and lint in the first place. As for the socks' construction, Point6 designed these with a medium-height, 3.5-inch cuff. So, by not being either too high or too low, you'll experience a consistent level of comfort across a wide range of climates. The Point6 Podium Ultra Light Socks are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black and Silver. - $14.95
