I’m a cold sleeper and was looking for options to help keep my feet warm through out the night. In the past I’ve used wool socks which helped but didn’t quite keep the chill out. The first night I used the goose socks it was like heaven! They are so lightweight and add noticeable warmth! These will extend my hiking season well into the late fall, worth every penny!

Win the battle against cold feet at camp with these extra warm goose socks. Crafted to keep your toes tucked away from the chill they are great for sleeping, and sitting around camp. Do not hike in these socks. Treat them as you would your sleeping bag.

Goose Socks do not need to be washed very often. Wash once after a long season or only as needed.
Be careful of machine washing down Goose Socks. The twisting motion of a washing machine could potentially tear the shell material. If you do try a washing machine do so at your own risk using the delicate setting.
We recommend hand washing your Goose Socks in a sink or bathtub with warm water and Granger's Down wash. Swish the socks around for a few minutes and rinse.
Squish the socks and squeeze as much water as you can out of it.
For best results, lay the socks out in the sun to dry. You may have to periodically pull apart any wet down clumps to allow them to dry completely and fluff back up like new.
High heat from a clothes dryer can melt delicate shell materials. We recommend drying your down gear items in the sun, or line drying indoors if the weather doesn't permit sun drying.

Fabulous goose socks
I bought these for a month long walk on the 1000km/621m Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia, Australia. Overnight temps could drop to 0oC/32F. They proved to be worth their weight in gold, even though I had a -4oC sleeping bag. I gave a pair to a friend who has cold feet, even in his house, and he loves them. I met several women who complained of having cold thighs and backside at night, and I think Zpacks should make 'bloomers' for women in goose down. It would be great to pull them on before bed and not be cold.
I've needed these for a long time
One of my best investments ever! I've spent days in sub freezing weather, stuck in the snow, freezing my butt off. My feet never warm up. I finally found these and bought them right away. For me, they've been a game changer. So far I've only used them on the Colorado Trail. Plenty of freezing nights, snow, hail, and rain. My feet always nice and cozy at night! No drafts! Gotta love them! More trips coming up and they'll be in my pack on those trips too!
Great for warm feet during the night and can be used as gloves to warm up hands on cold mornings. Takes very little space and are very light.
