Rocky Gore-Tex Socks, as the tagline goes, are “Guaranteed to Keep You Dry”, and they do. These socks were a pleasant surprise in our Lightweight Footwear Systems for Snow Travel project (to be published soon). For snow hiking and snowshoeing, we wore them over wool socks in lightweight, non-waterproof, highly breathable trail running shoes, and they worked!
