With technologies combining active cooling and insect repellency, these socks are essential for runs around the lake or hot-day hikes. Jade-infused fiber blend is cool to the touch, and toe-panel ventilation lets your dogs get some air. ExOfficio® loves innovation, and developed the new BugsAway® Sol Cool™ technology to give you the ultimate in travel comfort and protection. Cool and fresh: Sol Cool™ Jade fabrics are cool to the touch, and SILVADUR™ activates silver ions in the presence of undesirable bacteria, helping eliminate odor. Bug blocking: BugsAway® apparel is treated with Insect Shield®, giving you invisible, odorless protection just by putting on your clothes. The treatment is bound to fabric fibers, so it stays in your clothes—not on your skin—and lasts through 70 washes. Ants, flies, chiggers, midges, and ticks don't like it, and neither do mosquitoes, which can transmit insect-borne diseases such as Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue, and West Nile viruses.
