Fans of waterproof socks will be pleased to know that 360DRY® have added to their range with a version of the ankle sock in black.
These waterproof and breathable socks have the same soft feel as the blue Merino wool version but in a different colour. Like the blue ankle socks they are slightly thinner and softer than the full length version and I like how they don’t “feel” like a waterproof sock. I choose the long, slightly thicker socks for really nasty conditions or if I know I’m going to be out for a long time. The shorter version are good for less severe conditions such as wet grass and snow rather than deep, waterlogged ground, although I gave them a stern test in bad weather recently. My feet were slightly damp afterwards but I did run through a stream where water came over the top of the socks! Even so my feet stayed warm and there was no sensation of the heat being flushed away when running through cold water, as is often the case with non waterproof socks.
