Bridgedale Introduces Waterproof, Breathable StormSocks

From SNEWS by Katy Gaenicke

Bridgedale StormSock

HydroTech™ PU membrane allows perspiration to pass to the outer layer of the sock while preventing outside water from getting in

Bridgedale Outdoor Ltd, a global market leader in the manufacture of performance socks, introduces its first 100% waterproof and windproof breathable sock called StormSock. Developed to provide wet weather protection and day long comfort, it combines Bridgedale’s latest knitting technology, FusionTech™ with a HydroTech™ waterproof, breathable and windproof membrane. The StormSocks will be available online and through specialty retailers in North America in fall 2018.

“Bridgedale’s new StormSock collection has been designed and tested to perform to the highest standards in the wettest conditions when hiking, biking or running and will keep feet protected from wind, cold and wetness,” said Jim Evans, Product Manager for Bridgedale. “The 100% waterproof StormSock guarantees foot protection and comfort for outdoor adventurers tackling the wettest trails.”

The Bridgedale StormSock is constructed with three layers of protection. The inner Layer that touches the skin is made with 60% Merino Wool that’s known for its anti-odor properties, combined with wicking synthetic fibers to move perspiration away from the foot. A terry loop underfoot cushion that extends around both the toes and over the heel ensures comfortable feet in wet conditions. The HydroTech™ PU membrane allows perspiration to pass to the outer layer of the sock while preventing outside water from getting in. This Hydrophilic nonporous PU membrane transports perspiration to the outside via solid state diffusion meaning water molecules are carried through the physical membrane as it seeks to maintain heat and humidity equilibrium. This membrane is not affected by foreign object contamination (such as mud, dirt and salts from sweat) unlike the more common microporous membranes commonly found in waterproof clothing. When laminated to the inner and outer layers this midlayer creates a 100% waterproof, stretchable and well-fitted sock. The Nylon and Lycra outer layer protects the waterproof sock against abrasion from footwear and provides excellent stretch to ensure the sock is easy to pull on and off and guaranteeing a snug fit.

Machine washable and available in ankle, boot and knee length, the StormSock has three different weight options:

Outside Magazine: RinseKit

RinseKit Portable Shower

The portable shower has gotten a much-needed reboot.

For those who find the standard hang-it-from-a-tree gravity showers lacking in pressure and pump-up showers like the well-made Helio Pressure Shower a touch too involved, there’s a new supremely simple option: RinseKit. Call it a shower in a box.

RinseKit is pressurized directly from a water spigot or, with a threaded adaptor, most sink faucets. No plugging in. No batteries. No pumping. The pressure is equal to what you get from your sink or hose, or about eight gazillion times better than typical portable showers. Using the “Shower” setting, we got just shy of four minutes of wash time out of the two-gallon volume, though the pressure did decline towards the end. The box is insulated, so if you fill it with hot water it will hold its heat for several hours.

It’s not a unit you’ll take far from your car, but for beach days or, say, de-mudding your dog at the trailhead, you can’t beat it.

RinseKit Plus: $99

SCHOOL OF RACK

LEARN HOW TO RACK YOUR WORLD

The Yakima School of Rack is in session, offering introductory classes to help you choose the roof rack system and mounts that work for you, your gear, and your ride. Each lesson breaks down a rack category and helps you understand the rack possibilities available to enable your next epic adventure.

Why are there different types of bike and kayak racks? What if I like to do a bunch of different things – how do I create a set-up for that? I know I’m supposed to tie down my kayak, but how do I do it right?

Our curriculum has it covered. So, sharpen your pencils, sit up straight, find your class, and take notes. Then rack up for recess!

ROOF RACKS 101

BUILDING YOUR FOUNDATION

A multi-sport rack system is all about that base, and that base is your roof rack. But what fits your vehicle’s roof? What kind of roof do you even have? Which bars and towers do you need? In this School of Rack session, we guide you to the perfect system for your vehicle.
