.59 oz/sqyd Ventum Ripstop Nylon

This super light, high quality, 7 denier fabric showcases a ciré finish on both sides and weighs in at just .59 oz/sqyd (17 g/m²).  Featuring a high quality "C6" durable water repellant (DWR), this ripstop and tear resistant material can also handle a light mist (but is not waterproof).

Ventum nylon cuts the wind while still allowing for excellent vapor transfer the makes the fabric highly breathable.  With a soft texture, Ventum is not sticky or plasticky like some other fabrics in this weight range.

As the material is down and mosquito proof, it is an excellent choice for wind shell clothing and sleeping bag shells.

Weight: .59 oz/sqyd (17 g/m²)

This ethically sourced premium down is great for providing warmth in sleeping bags, hoods and socks.

Storage

Store loose (hanging in a closet for example) when not in use. 

Washing

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.

These Goose Socks are priceless!

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!

Warn Goose socks

These are great lite weight down socks for wearing inside your sleeping bag on cold nights. I gave them only four stars because I think they are too delicate to wear anywhere besides a tent or inside our bag.

Product to answer feet warmth!

I used these on a recent backpacking trip that got down to 25 degrees at night, My feet were very cold when I first put them in the goose socks in my tent. However, after 15 minutes, my feet were perfectly warm and stayed warm throughout the night and into the morning. I have gone on many winter campouts over the years and have always had the problem of keeping my feet warm at ngiht. I believe the goose socks have solved my problem! Great to see a product that solved it.

Down booties

These are excellent for sleeping in my hammock in South West Ontario where temps fall to -18 degrees C. I wear them with lightweight ankle socks only because I don’t want to wear them barefoot, but do not need the extra layer. Women’s size 9 and the medium fit wonderfully.
