Bridgedale is introducing its first 100% waterproof sock range, available in retailers from May 2018. 

Developed to provide wet weather protection and comfort, the Storm range combines Bridgedale’s FusionTech™ with a HydroTech™ Waterproof, Breathable and Windproof membrane.  The new range has been designed and tested to perform in the wettest conditions when hiking, biking or running.


Breathability >12,000mg/m*m/24h

Waterproofing Hydrostatic head >8,000mm

Inner Sock

The inner sock is made from up to 60% Merino Wool combined with wicking synthetic fibres to deliver a stable temperature and move moisture from the skin’s surface. The lining features a terry loop underfoot cushion that extends around both the toes and over the heel to ensure comfortable feet in wet conditions.

HydroTech™ membrane

The three-layer construction features a waterproof, breathable, high stretch and windproof HydroTech™ permeable membrane, which when laminated to the inner and outer layers creates a 100% Waterproof stretchable and good fitting sock.

Outer Sock

The Nylon outer protects the waterproof sock against abrasion from footwear. LYCRA® provides  stretch to ensure the sock is easy to pull on and off and is a snug, comfortable, high performance fit.  As well as LYCRA® running through the inner and outer sock, it is also added around the arch of the foot to keep the sock firmly in position, reducing any bunching or rucking inside the shoe or boot that could cause irritation.

The Storm sock is available in three lengths....

Ankle Fitting just above ankle bone, this length is perfect for running or walking in wet conditions

Boot Designed to fit around the middle of the calf, this length keeps the lower leg warm and dry and can be paired with waterproof trousers or gaiters to prevent water ingress at the top. Ideal for mountaineering, hillwalking and mountain biking.

Knee Giving full lower leg coverage and protection, this maximum length is perfect for wading through streams or rivers or running or riding in shorts when the weather turns colder.

And three weights....
