DexShell reveal the technology behind their best-selling Terrain Walking Socks, which enables them to offer unrivalled performance whatever the weather
The Terrain Walking Socks are one of our best-selling products and it’s easy to see why. They are completely waterproof and windproof yet breathable, with a midweight antibacterial Coolmax fresh FX inner and a terry loop cushioning pad from heel to toe. They offer our customers blister-free protection and anti-odour performance whilst delivering complete comfort and dryness in wet rugged conditions, making them ideal for any recreation and outdoor activity where you need to be active whilst keeping feet dry.
In terms of material used, the outer shell is 83 percent polyester, nine percent nylon, three percent elastane and five percent cuff elastic. The interlining is made of Porelle membrane and the inner sock consists of 73 percent Coolmax fresh FX and 24 percent nylon.
DexShell’s Terrain Walking Socks also come in two sizes: mid (RRP £33) and low (RRP £30) length, so our customers can choose the best one for their needs.
Consistently keeping ahead with advancements in technology is what enables us to produce protective gear which is so effective in repelling the outdoor elements, even in the most challenging conditions.
Our Terrain Walking Socks are equipped with three different technologies, each providing unique benefits:
Patented ‘4-Way Stretch’ Technology
By using a unique micro dot lamination technique, this process provides greater freedom to enable the user to be more active. The micro dot lamination between the outer lining and interlining provides greater stretch, allowing the product to be more flexible and in turn help the users ability to move.
Waterproof Breathable Porelle Membranes
Porelle membranes are manufactured by PIL Membranes with over 30 years’ experience in the market place. Porelle waterproof breathable membranes have been engineered for lamination to create high performance fabrics for a range of different market applications. These membranes are also resistant to high temperatures and are extremely durable. DexShell selects a line of Porelle membrane with the WVP 15,000 g/m2.day ASTM E96:95, this is what gives our socks their waterproof, windproof and breathable properties.
Coolmax is the performance yarn that includes an effective fibre-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, through the fabric, and transfers out of the wear. It can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and much more comfortable. Coolmax fresh FX has the permanent antibacterial performance due to the special treatment by silver-based additive during the production.
