Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks
As most anglers know, the only feeling worse than blanking is being sat on the bank with freezing cold feet! Not only are numb toes painful but they are also incredibly distracting and, as we’re all aware, distractions on the bank are never a good thing for our fishing. Being comfortable on the bank means that you’re much more likely to be confident on the bank and the confident angler is much more likely to come away with a successful session. Preparing for the elements is as important when you’re thinking about what clothes you’re going to wear as it is when you’re deciding on your tackle setup and getting the right outfit, from head to toe, can be as revolutionary for your angling enjoyment as investing in a new bivvy or bedchair.
Skee-Tex is a brand which is well aware of the difference a warm pair of socks can make. Ski-wear experts, the brand is finely tuned into the needs of cold-weather sports people, which is why it has worked hard to design a pair of socks which can cope with the very coldest of conditions. These North Pole Thermal Socks can do just that and Skee-Tex is confident that these will keep you as warm on a polar expedition as they will on the British bankside. The Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks are 24 inches in length, which means that they can stretch right up your calves for ultimate warmth. This makes these socks ideal for use under wellington boots, too, as they ensure that you’re kept warm the full way up your leg.
These Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks are constructed from a wool mix. The inclusion of these natural fibres, which make up 44% of the sock, ensures that your feet and calves are kept supremely insulated throughout your time on the bank. Wool is one of the most naturally warming fibres and its use in these socks means that you’ll never be stamping your feet on the bankside in a bid to keep warm. These socks come in one size, to fit all feet.
If you’re an angler who finds themselves wading into your swim in order to properly land your fish then you’ll be well aware of how cold the water can be in the wintery months. In these near-zero conditions, a pair of properly designed and manufactured thermal socks can significantly improve your enjoyment on the bank. By pairing these Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks with a thermal base layer and adequate external layering, you’ll be kept toasty warm throughout your time on the bank – no matter how regularly you find yourself entering the water.
The Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks comes in two different colours. The first is a classic black, which will look great on and off the bank. The second is a carpy green colour. These are ideal for the angler who likes to remain completely coordinated throughout their angling wardrobe. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to let a little inclement weather spoil your chances on the bank, then these Skee-Tex North Pole Thermal Socks are the perfect addition to your angling clothing collection: high quality thermal clothing from experts in the field.
