When the campfire just isn’t enough to keep you warm and your feet need a little extra help heating up, Brushtail Possum Socks are an ultralight must have. Made from a combination of New Zealand's brushtail possum fur, and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool, these socks are sure to keep your toes nice and toasty.

These socks are very thick and warm! They are rugged enough to hike in on cold days, and they also make excellent sleep socks. They are great for winter sports as well.

For extra warmth pair these socks with our Brushtail Possum Gloves!

*Socks are non-returnable if they have been removed from the packaging.

Brushtail Possum Socks are produced by combining the fur of New Zealand's brushtail possum and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool.

The hair of brushtail possum is hollow, just like Polar Bear hair, which provides incredible warmth and water resistant.  While typical wool gloves may stay warm when wet, they take forever to dry. If you get these socks wet, the water shakes right out and they dry quickly.

New Zealand's possums are unrelated to the opossums found in the United States. They are super cute, but they are also an invasive species that destroy the native plant and bird life.

Warm and cozy, not durable

These socks are incredibly warm and after a few hand washes they lose their mild scratching/itchiness. They’re fantastic comfort for the weight and I’d highly recommend them. They do not pick up smells, but will develop a “trail odor“. However, the drawback is that they will not last long. After using them as sleeping socks only in a hammock for 5 weekend trips of 20-55 miles each, they’re already beginning to show signs of wear. Once they develop holes, I’m going back to down booties. Once again, I only used them to sleep in. I washed them gently, by hand in cold water, with non-aggressive, mild soap. I will not buy this product again for that reason, but if you don’t care to replace them every once in a while, they’re exceptional while they last.

Great sleep socks

Very warm. I wanted my feet to breathe at night so I was hesitant to go with down socks. These are perfect for me. Instantly my favorite sleep socks.

From my feet..Thanks

I've heard nothing but good about the Possum Socks from members of the Adventure Riders group. So I decided to get them a go. I have to say the are one of the best pair of socks I've tried. I've got terrible troubles with my feet and I'm always in the hunt for a godsend. These are definitely making a difference. Not only in my outdoor activities, but with every day trekking. Be it working on my toys or enjoying them on my next adventure. Thanks again and please keep our outdoor litter free

A must for cool/cold weather sleeping

Fantastic socks. Bought these for their lightweight and warmth (along with the ZPack beanie hat and the gloves) for cool/cold weather backpacking. The socks I bought to wear at night under my sleeping quilt. They are amazing in warmth, comfort and lightweight for packing. Highly recommend!

So warm!

Ordering more because my guy claimed both pairs! Actually the size chart said I should get a med, but they were a bit big, so as a W's size 7.5 I'm going to try a small.
