Bridgedale is the global market leader in the manufacture of technical socks for hiking, mountaineering, running, skiing and walking for good reason. The company’s factory in Northern Ireland has been knitting socks since WW1, so you might say they know what they’re doing. The TrailBlaze “CoolFusion” technology means you’re buying a burley, yet breathable hiking sock with hybrid construction (a mix of merino wool, nylon, polypropylene, and Lychra) that provides excellent padding where needed with maximum ventilation. Pick up or order a pair from Hyperspud Sports in Moscow, Winthrop Mt. Sports in the Methow, or Alberg Sports in Wenatchee. //
