We tested several types of vapor barrier socks for our project on Lightweight Systems for Snow Travel (to be published soon), including the Integral Designs VB Socks. These lightweight minimalist socks were one of our favorites for snow hiking, snowshoeing, and winter camping in frigid temperatures.
