Lorpen, a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance socks for outdoor and sport enthusiasts, has created a new Polartec sock collection with unparalleled technology that surpasses current technical ski socks on the U.S. market. Lorpen has also expanded their exceptionally popular Merino Hiker sock line that now includes Merino Light and Midweight Hikers in both men’s and women’s styles.  All of these new socks will be available at specialty retail stores and online at in Fall 2012.

“We are so excited to introduce the first sock available to U.S. consumers that uses Polartec – it is like a softshell for your feet!” says Bruce Barrows, VP of sales and marketing at Lorpen North America.  “They have already been tested by some of the most extreme athletes in the world in the most severe weather and terrain.  Now, we are bringing this advanced performance technology to outdoor adventurists and weekend warriors so they can continue to achieve their goals in comfort, whether it be hiking, skiing, climbing or trekking.”


Lorpen is the first to offer such advanced high performance socks with Polartec technology to the outdoor market.  These socks have been designed for the hardcore wintersports adventurist who experiences extended cold weather. Made with Polartec, Power Stretch and Lycra, the socks are uniquely engineered with flat lock seams (vs. a traditional knit sock) and are specifically created for warmth and comfort.  The Polartec Power Stretch fabric gives the socks great elasticity, and the Power Dry technology helps transfer moisture away from the foot and adds cushioning.
