I would not hesitate to bring these along on backpcking trips when rain is expected, while fly fishing in the cold, or mountain biking in a downpour.
Hanz designs and manufacture all of their products in the U.S.A., which I like a lot. Each pair of socks and gloves is tested for water proofness before leaving the factory. I can’t wait for snow this winter to get full use out of both the socks and gloves.
HANZ also boasts their waterproof wear allows perspiration to escape, so I wore these socks in the shower. Five minutes later and my feet were still cozy and dry. Impressive.
