Thermal Rating Explained:
We design and engineer the entire range of products so there is something suitable for all weather conditions. Naturally, how cold or hot someone feels is relative to the individual. We have developed a thermal rating system, graded from ONE to FIVE to indicate the relative warmth of our products.
Products with a thermal rating of ONE are lighter weight and/or thinner and suited to warmer conditions or more energetic activities, such as running. Products with a thermal rating of FIVE are heavier weight and/or thicker, these are great for cold, extreme conditions and are suited to less-energetic, static activities, such as fishing and shooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gryme Best winter sock I've tried.
Tired of getting very wet feet on winter mountain rides. Got these last Xmas and together with FiveTen Freerider VXII Elements shoes, I had dry feet for the rest of the winter. Even if the socks get wet, they keep your feet dry.
They feel strange when you first put them on, but you soon forget they are there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottC1606 Great buy for wet weather
Used these on a 3 day, 300 mile road cycle for first use. Comfort was not an issue at all. In warm weather they are just about as cool as any other sports sock, in wet they are PHENOMENAL after 10hrs of continuous cycling i took my shoes off (they were soaked) but my feet remained warm and dry! Have since had them out mountainbiking. Great for going through puddles etc, fantastic all round sock for any riding in any conditions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AMitchell Not bad but loses waterproofing quickly
So I bought these because cycling in the UK can be bad weather at the best of times, and I commute to work in all weather. I was at first very impressed with the socks, but after a few washes, some of the stitching had come off, and they began losing their waterproofing. However, having said that, they still kept my feet a lot warmer, and if they're not dry, they're much better than normal socks. I am going to try and re-waterproof them again

En principio me parecieron muy caros, pero podía merecer la pena.Ni los he llegado a estrenar. Ajuste pésimo. Excesivamente apretado en el pié y no ajusta en la pantorrila, se cae si pedaler si quiera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laguillotine They work, and are cheaper then waterproof shoes!
I brought these for mountain biking as Overshoes dont work to well and usually get ripped. Since owning them I have started using them for running too.
So far I have ran throuh rivers, peat bogs and come of the bike in deep wet clay. A first It fells like your feet are wet but ther not!
The only time some water gets in is when I hose myself down in the garden. Which is much eaiser now as i can just hose shoes and socks as soon as i'm home!
They look and feel a bit weird but once your moving its fine.
I brough the mid weight but they almost fit and feel like a heavy weight and are very warm when running, so next time I well get the light weight and add socks underneath in the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cvolbike Completely waterproof
I love these socks. Living in Victoria, I cycle in heavy rain for two to three months each year. Combining these socks with my Endura Stealth Lite biblongs keaps me warm and dry. The socks are tough and durable. Winter tempretures in Victoria are typically just a few degrees above freezing, and I wear a pair of compression socks under the Sealskinz, so would purchase the thin version of thes socks next time. The mid weight are just a bit too warm.
