Lorpen T3 Light Hiker Shorty Unisex Technical Socks - Charcoal
The Lorpen T3 (3 layer) Light Hiker Socks are constructed using Synthetic Coolmax® and Tencel® Technology.
Coolmax® is a polyester yarn from Invista with channels to efficiently transport moisture away from the skin to the outside of the sock.
Tencel® is a cellulose lenzing fibre which comes from Eucalyptus plans on certified sustainable plantations. Its nano-structure provides exceptional wicking, accumulation, expansion and drying of moisture.
Lorpen is the only sock brand in the world that manufacturers socks with 3 layers of yarn.
A hydrophobic yarn in contact with the skin that wicks the moisture outside keeping the skin dry.
A hydrophobic yarn in the mid-outer side that absorbs the moisture out of the skin and spreads it for faster drying.
A resistant yarn in the outside that protects the areas most exposed to friction depending on type and level of activity.
The T3 light Hiker contains 10% lycra helping the sock to fit each foot size properly without wrinkles that could cause blisters. The sock incorporates a no relief seam that joins one stitch flat with another interlocking stitch without creating a ridge or any relief.
There is cushioning in the toe and the heel and a venting panel across the top of the foot.
COOLMAX FABRICS COMFORT SYSTEM
The advanced technology of Coolmax® fabrics is going to change the way we behave. Coolmax® fabrics bring users unique comfort during the normal exertions of everyday life or the more intense exertions of sporting activity. Besides its technical performance, Coolmax® improves your comfort and therefore influences your well-being and your state of mind.
A physical well-being which naturally brings you peace of mind.
With Coolmax®, you feel fresher, more focused, ready to tackle the next challenge.
Coolmax® is a high tech fabric specifically and uniquely engineered to keep users dry and comfortable.
Coolmax® fabrics are made from specially engineered polyester fibres from ADVANSA with an increased surface area. This special four-channel or six-channel fibre forms a transport system that pulls moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric. It then dries that moisture faster than other fabrics to thermoregulate the body by evaporative cooling.
Originally developed to meet the demanding needs of top class athletes, today Coolmax® fabrics are used for many kinds of garments such as sportswear, intimate apparel, workwear, ready-to-wear - in fact, wherever there is a need for fresh, dry comfort combined with easy care advantages.
Coolmax® is a trademark of Invista and ADVANSA has the exclusive brand rights for Coolmax® polyester in Europe, Middle East and Africa
Tencel® - The New Age Fibre
Tencel® is a cellulose fibre made from Eucalyptus trees grown on certified sustainable farms. The very fine internal fibre structure of Tencel® offers exceptional moisture transport, storage and drying capabilities. It's extremely smooth surface feels very soft and pleasant to the skin. Tencel® is used as the middle layer of our Tri-Layer sock collections where aerobic activities require very effective moisture management capabilities.
Water, most vital for life, is managed uniquely by TENCEL®’s properties
TENCEL® absorbs excess liquid and quickly releases it again into the atmosphere. The true nature of TENCEL® can be found in this perfect interaction. If that does not constitute the dawning of a new age, then what does?
Fibrils are the key to the performance and possibilities of TENCEL®.
Fibrils are tiny components (little "hairs") which make up the fiber. The unique structure of the fibrils allows the production of textiles which, until now, could only be dreamed of. This is the first cellulose fiber whose functionality is based on this innovative structure. The controlled and regular arrangement of these tiny fibrils leads to new functional properties. The fibrils are hydrophilic and optimize the absorption of moisture with excellent cooling properties.
The comparision provides you with reassurance
Moisture transport is determined by climate. Depending upon climate conditions, TENCEL® either absorbs or releases moisture. Compared to other fibers, TENCEL® features the highest moisture absorption-rate: with air humidity at 65%, TENCEL® still has unused capacity to absorb moisture from the skin.
