SealSkinz socks have been around for quite a few years, and are well-known for being waterproof and tough. In our Lightweight Footwear Systems for Snow Travel project (to be published soon), we evaluated the SealSkinz ChillBlocker and Over The Calf socks inside non-waterproof trail running shoes for their ability to keep feet warm and dry. How well did they do?
