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 3 out of 5 by Mashka quickly leaked
Bought socks for autumn 2012, to be ridden work - home. if a long ride in the rain or puddles, the water gradually penetrates into the tissue on the outer, a month later began to leak, probably from the formation of cracks in the inner layer. If you buy a waterproof, only long socks and half a size or a size bigger - that would be the inner layer of felt less stress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Does the job marvelously
I figured I'd try these for a 10 day tour of Germany and use them with my Shimano sandals in case of rain. Save me the bother of bringing another pair of shoes and a bit easier to put on than a shoe cover. Worked very well in the one rainy and cold day, we had. The socks kept my feet comfortably warm and dry. In fact I hardly noticed I was wearing them. Only minor niggle would be their sizing. Large is supposed to be a size 43-46. I use a size 43 and they felt a bit on the small size. Since the material is not stretchy that might be a thing to consider. I think I'll try the XL when I buy some long ones for winter use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Strange but true...
These feel very weird on your feet at first, a bit like there's a crisp packet woven inside but they are of course very soft inside. Above all else though, once your in your shoes you don't notice the strangeness and they really do keep your feet dry even when completely submerged in water. These socks have transformed my wet weather riding days since the waterproof booties I have are not quite as good as you'd think. Definitely a 5 star from me.
