We were introduced to Applied Orange from a good friend of ours from across the pond.  The Netherlands based company is dedicated to making clothing for “the ultimate weapon’s system, the solider on the ground.”  Their product line includes FR Combat Shirts, FR Boonie Hats, Performance Socks, and of course Morale Patches.

TGL was sent a pair of their High Performance Combat Socks to review.  And, as you know, TGL is always looking for products that are going to keep us warm … which means happy. For us, warm feet = happiness.

Applied Orange’s Combat Sock is made up of Coolmax, Cordura, and Silver Nanoparticals treated yarn (that helps with odor and anti-fungul).  They have also reinforced the toe and heel areas of the socks.  The socks themselves would be classified as tall boot socks. When we put them on, they extended to just below the knee, so there is no worry if you are running 6 inch, 9 inch, or taller boots. You will have enough sock to keep your foot, ankle, and calf covered. This helps with keeping your lower legs warm, and are another layer of protection against your skin. You also have the ability to fold the socks over for added warmth.

Applied Orange markets these socks as Summer weight, but our testing during New England Fall and Winter found that they kept our feet very warm and dry. We paired them with a pair of Merrell Hiking Boots, and the OTB Bootistans and found these pairings worked out very well.  Our feet stayed warm and dry as we used them for an afternoon of hiking, in the office, and many trips around town with our two dogs.  These socks definitely can be worn during the early winter/fall and summer months.

These socks are going to added to our list of favorite items for our feet. And that is a very short list.

If you are interested in another great pair of socks for your outdoor collection, then please head over to Applied Orange’s Website and select the Performance Sock Page.  As of this writing, the High Performance Socks retail for $26.87 (May vary based on exchange rates) and are available for shoe sizes from 2.5 to 12 (UK/US Sizes).
