The T3 Light Hiker is designed to keep your feet dry on warm hikes. This sock combines 3 layers of technical fibres: COOLMAX , Merino Wool, and NILIT INNERGY.
The COOLMAX fibres work to move perspiration away from the body, and through the fabric, where it can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and more comfortable.
A layer of TENCEL provides a layer that is soft to the touch and comfortable against the skin. It is a fully biodegradable fiber that is made from trees from sustainable farms.
Lastly, NILIT INNERGY is a special type of Nylon that converts heat emitted by the body and reflects it back to enhance muscle elasticity and oxygen absorption. It is durable and long-lasting. Repeated washing will not decrease the effectiveness of the technology.
Lorpen began as a small manufacturer of technical socks in the Basque region of Spain in the early 1980\x92s. Our founders were looking to make innovative and functional socks for walking and hiking enthusiasts. We are now a company with manufacturing facilities located on two continents and we sell our socks in more than 60 countries worldwide.
While we have experienced significant growth, our founders still manage the company with their original vision intact, \x93to produce the best technical socks for serious outdoor activities.\x94
It's not unusual for our designers to head out into the local mountains that surround our headquarters in the morning before returning to design socks in the afternoon. This is what makes Lorpen different. Our passion and commitment to excellence is a direct result of living and working in a natural environment.
Our vision also includes a commitment to preserve the environment in every aspect of business. This means that whenever possible we work with fibres that are created from sustainable and manageable resources. We also develop manufacturing processes that are sensitive to the environment and reduce the amount of post production waste at all levels.
All of this is accomplished while we continue to bring new products to the market that increase the users comfort and durability. We're driven by our passion to make the best socks in the world.
