SealSkinz waterproof socks, cycle over socks and knitted gloves use a patented technology, ensuring the ultimate in waterproof and breathable protection for the feet and hands. When its cold and wet outside, they will keep you warm and dry. Equally, when its warm outside, the highly breathable membrane and Merino wool lining will pull sweat away from the body leaving you cool and dry.
SealSkinz waterproof technology uses a unique seamless three layer construction – an outer, a waterproof, highly breathable membrane and an inner lining.
1. INNER LAYER
The inner layer is designed to be worn next to the skin. Being made from Merino wool – it is soft, warm, comfortable which actively wicks sweat and moisture away from the skin.
2. MIDDLE LAYER
A completely waterproof, highly breathable yet windproof, membrane. It’s impervious to water but will allow sweat, in the form of water molecules, to pass through it – keeping hands, feet and head dry and comfortable.
3. OUTER LAYER
A tough and durable outer shell to stand up to all weather conditions.
The waterproof membrane is bonded semi-continuously between the inner layer (shown at the bottom next to the skin) and the outer layer, providing a stretchable, permanent waterproof barrier.
Sweat (in the form of water molecules) is wicked away from the skin by the inner layer and can then ‘breathe’ out through the membrane, thereby keeping skin dry and comfortable.
