Product Description
Details

The Lorpen TEP is a mid calf length sock designed specifically for very cold weather use. It uses double layer Polartec Powerstretch for warmth and padding.  This is boosted in key areas with a layer of Polartec Powerdry to enhance moisture transfer, durability and thermal effficiency.

Polartec Powerstretch is used in a double layer for the main body of the sock for excellent warmth, fit and breathability.  This is combined with an inner layer of Polartec Powerdry fabric in key zones (under the foot and around the toes) which enhances the socks thermal performance further, adds additional cushioning, reduces friction and improves moisture transfer. A triple layer 'pad' protects the shin from being rubbed in ski boots.

The Lorpen TEP is ideal for winter climbers, ski tourers and mountaineers, snowboarders and down hill skiers and winter walkers. 

Lorpen is a well established Spanish company, based in Navarra, that specialise in outdoor socks.  Lorpen means 'achievement' in the Basque language.

POLARTEC POWER STRETCH

Polartec Power Stretch fabrics feature body-hugging 4-way stretch and are very breathable. They keep you dry when you sweat and provide warmth without weight. These are the most versatile outdoor and fitness clothing fabrics available today. Many of the fabrics feature a proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: the durable, smooth outer layer is wind- and abrasion-resistant; the soft inner layer pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you dry, warm and comfortable. Other fabrics in the series feature compression stretch which can improve performance and reduces the chance of certain types of stop-go injuries. Climbing, running—even taking on an Ironman competition—are easier when your clothing doesn't inhibit freedom of movement.

How Does It Work?

Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec Power Stretch® keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:
    •    The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapour.
    •    "Touch points" on the fabric inner surface draw off the sweat. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric, where it spreads rapidly for evaporation.
    •    When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton.

Technical Highlights

    •    4-way stretch
    •    Keeps your skin dry when you sweat
    •    Highly breathable
    •    Wind and abrasion resistant
    •    Comfortable next-to-skin
    •    Machine washable

The other fabric in the socks is Power Dry, which is used in Base layers to keep you comfortable and dry through every adventure.

 

Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics are designed to keep your skin dry when you sweat. Ideal for runners, skiers, and adventure travellers, all fabrics in this series feature a patented bi-component knit construction that uses different yarns on either side of the fabric. This creates two different surfaces: one that is optimised to move moisture away from the skin, the other to dry quickly.

How Does It Work?

Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec® Power Dry® keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:

1. The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapour.

2. "Touch points" on the fabric inner surface draw moisture. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric where it spreads rapidly for evaporation. Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics move at least 30% more moisture away from the skin than single-component fabrics.

3. When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out on the outer surface of the fabric, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton.
