Socks Gloves Hats

A brand on the move Welcome to our 2011-12 trade catalogue. Our continued growth and success in the outdoor market means the SealSkinz速 brand is now becoming recognised and respected throughout the field. Increased demand is being seen across outdoor, cycle, equestrian, country and marine sectors with new customers discovering the benefits of our products all the time. As the brand grows, so does the need to develop new products and improve our packaging and marketing support. Our 2011-12 range includes many new lines and comes in exciting new packaging with clearer communication of product usage, benefits and performance. You will notice some significant changes to our unique range of waterproof, breathable socks. Following the successful introduction of the Thin Mid Calf and Activity Socks last year, we have now included elasticated insteps, ankle support and terry loop on many of the socks to improve fit, comfort and styling. New, improved packaging and clearer product naming will help increase sales by making it easier for your customers to choose the right product every time.

All these improvements demonstrate our commitment to making SealSkinz速 the brand of choice in the outdoor market, whatever the activity, whatever the weather.

WATERPROOF BREATHABLE

Technology

SealSkinz速 products incorporate our unique seamless, close fitting, three-layer technology. 1 - Close fitting inner actively wicks sweat and moisture away from the skin. 2 - WATERPROOF BREATHABLE membrane. 3 - Tough durable outer.

The WATERPROOF technology incorporates a waterproof breathable membrane ensuring hands, feet and heads are always dry and comfortable.

4

The highly BREATHABLE membrane reduces sweat build-up by allowing moisture transmission from the skin, through the inner layer to the outer layer.

PLEASE NOTE: The type of membrane arrangement varies depending on the product.


Our unique technology Our WATERPROOF, BREATHABLE technology now extends across a diverse range of products, from specialist items like Hunting Gloves and Trekking Socks to more ‘all round’ products such as the Beanie Hat and Ultra Grip Gloves. Communicating the WATERPROOF, BREATHABLE concept has always been challenging and wearing our socks and standing in a pool of water all day is not always an option. To help increase your sales we have produced new technical illustrations to explain how our unique, patented technology works. These illustrations feature on all new packaging, clearly explaining the features and benefits to both consumers and sales staff who may not yet be familiar with the brand. For 2011-12 the SealSkinz® range is even bigger with the addition of many new products and the introduction of Premium items, offering superior performance and comfort. On pages 14 and 15 you will find details of our P3 range of specialist Sports Socks - brilliant, innovative products with massive potential. Whatever the product, whoever the customer, the SealSkinz® range of socks, hats and gloves gives you something to shout about and the opportunity to increase sales.

Famously good Our products are recommended by many outdoor sports enthusiasts including runners, road cyclists, mountain bikers, canoeists, sailors and horse riders, to name but a few. These are just some of the many testimonials and endorsements we receive every year.

Race to the Pole Alexis Girardet - Producer “I issued the trial gloves and socks to my film crew and they were a major, major success. The kit kept our fingers and toes dry and warm in some very wet and slushy conditions. Our boots were often soaked, but our feet remained dry, essential for our future well-being when we hit Antarctica. Dry feet and hands will make the difference between serious injury or not down south.�

Colnago-CSF Inox Bruno Reverberi “We have chosen to use SealSkinz® products because they offer the best protection from harsh weather conditions. The Italian winter weather is very unpredictable and we need the best kit available to make sure that our riders are comfortable and focused on the task in hand. We train year-round and race in all types of weather, needing extra protection in the cold winter and wet spring months.“

Telefonica Blue and Telefonica Black Volvo Round the World Ocean Race The Volvo, Round the World, Ocean Yacht Race saw both the Telefonica teams wearing SealSkinz® hats and gloves. 7


SOCKS


Socks that sell all year round Our 2011-12 sock range offers solutions for almost any kind of outdoor activity and all weather conditions, giving year-round sales opportunities. Following the successful introduction of the Thin Mid Calf and Activity Socks last year, we have now included elasticated insteps, ankle support and terry loop on many of the socks to improve fit, comfort and styling. New packaging has been created to make best use of shelf space and improve product visibility, naming has been simplified and the sock length and thermal rating are clearly communicated. This has all been designed with your customers in mind, making product selection much easier and reducing the need for guidance or assistance at the point of sale. For your guidance the table on page 13 shows the new names and the products they replace.

OFFICIALS

A UNIQUE PRODUCT, A BRILLIANT OPPORTUNITY Because sports footwear is becoming lighter and thinner we have developed a new sock to provide protection against the wet and cold that modern sporting footwear lacks. To achieve this we took the foot section from our highly successful SealSkinz® socks and combined it with a stretchable, fitted upper, capable of taking a shin pad, creating SealSkinz® P3s - the world’s first Waterproof, Breathable Sports Sock for players and officials. Warm, dry feet are winning feet! What price will your customers put on that?

SPORTS SOCKS

OFFICIALS SOCKS

Waterproof and breathable, close fitting and seamless, these socks are ideal both for training and matches when they will keep players’ feet warm and dry.

Close fitting, seamless design with inbuilt blister reduction system, these socks are a vital part of officials kit, keeping their feet warm and dry.

We guarantee all our products to be 100% waterproof when leaving the factory. Should you have a problem with a SealSkinz® product then it should be returned to us and we will put it through our testing procedures. If there is a manufacturing defect, we will replace the item for you.

How can SealSkinz® products be both waterproof and breathable? The waterproof, breathable material we use is a hydrophilic membrane. It’s a thin but solid, flexible layer which does not allow water droplets to pass, making it totally waterproof. The membrane ‘breathes’ by allowing water molecules to pass. These water molecules are driven through the membrane because of the higher temperature and humidity inside the sock, glove or hat compared to the outside.

How waterproof are SealSkinz® products? Waterproof fabrics and garments are generally tested to withstand a certain level of ‘hydrostatic head’. Our membranes are tested to withstand a column of water (hydrostatic head) at least 7,000 mm high.

How ‘breathable’ are SealSkinz® products? SealSkinz® products are very breathable. We specify a minimum W.V.P (Water vapour Permeability index) of 65% for all our patented socks and gloves (BS3424: Part 34; Method 37).

Do SealSkinz® products need any special waterproofing treatment? No, the membrane is a permanent waterproof barrier. There is no need to treat or reproof it in order to maintain or restore waterproofness.

Are SealSkinz® waterproof products also windproof? Yes, the membrane is windproof as well as waterproof.

How do I wash and dry them? Washing instructions are shown on the packaging and labels attached to the products themselves. SealSkinz® socks and waterproof knitted gloves can be machine washed at a maximum temperature of 40°C. They can be either drip or tumble-dried on a cool setting.

A good tip is to turn the socks inside out when drying them, as the wool lining takes longer to dry than the nylon outer. Also ensure they are not exposed to excessive heat. There are no special requirements for the type of washing powder or detergent that you use. Please refer to the care instructions on the individual products.

Can the membrane be damaged? As the socks use a membrane, always wear them with appropriate footwear. Avoid standing on stones and sharp objects that could puncture. With gloves, avoid thorns and other very sharp objects that could puncture the membrane.

How warm are the Ultra Grip and Ultra Tough Gloves? The patented three-layer system means that these gloves are warm considering how thin they are. However, they are designed to be close fitting with maximum grip and dexterity. Typically warmer gloves such as ski gloves have thick insulating material making them more bulky and less dexterous. Thinner gloves are not so warm. Be careful that the gloves are not too tight as this can restrict the blood circulation and make the hand feel cold.


Do the socks or gloves ever let water in? Actually yes they do; this can happen in extreme conditions if water runs into the top of a sock or into the wrist of a glove. To reduce this, many people will wear their trousers or leggings over the socks and cyclists will often run a piece of tape around the top of the socks. With gloves, tuck the cuff under the wrist of the jacket to prevent water running into the glove.

Will my feet feel sweaty in the socks? No they shouldn’t. The membrane is ‘breathable’ and the inner lining ‘wicks’ moisture and sweat away from the skin. The moisture then passes through the membrane keeping your feet dry and avoiding any clammy feeling.

Will the socks keep my feet warm? Yes. The three-layer system is inherently warmer than a normal sock and the membrane is windproof as well as waterproof. Of course the biggest factor is keeping your feet dry as dry feet will feel considerably warmer than wet ones.

How do the socks reduce blisters? Blisters are formed because of excessive friction on the skin. Wet skin, being softer than dry skin, is far more susceptible to blistering.

SealSkinz® socks reduce the chance of blistering by keeping your feet dry. The patented three-layer system also absorbs movement between the shoe and the skin, further reducing blisters.

How long will the socks last? As with other items of quality outdoor clothing, if cared for in the right way, SealSkinz® products can last for several years depending on how often they are worn. The nylon outer is harder wearing than a typical walking sock and they will last just as long, if not even longer.

How long do the socks take to dry? If you don’t have access to a tumble drier then, if you turn them inside out, the socks should dry overnight in a warm room or airing cupboard; just remember not to put them onto a direct heat source such as a hot radiator. The heavier weight socks may take a little longer to dry due to the thickness of the product.

I’m in between shoe sizes what size sock should I buy? Our socks come in Small (UK shoe size 3-5), Medium (6-8,) Large (9-11) and Extra-Large (12-14). If you are in between sizes, we recommend going up a sock size, i.e. if you are a shoe size 8½, then buy a “Large” size sock.

Should I wear liner socks or gloves? SealSkinz® waterproof socks and gloves are designed to be worn directly next to the skin with no liners. However, if you do need an extra layer for warmth then

our liner socks and gloves are perfect. Made with Merino wool, they are both warm and have excellent wicking properties - a must for any liner. Of course the liner gloves and socks are also great when worn by themselves.

What is the fit of our socks like? The close fitting socks will fit comfortably, just like a normal sock in your shoes.

What is the lowest temperature that I can wear SealSkinz® gloves at? It is difficult to give a definitive answer to this question because everyone feels the cold in a different way. Some people will feel cold when the temperature is above freezing, others won’t. The minimum temperature for wearing a glove also varies depending on the activity and the weather conditions - when running you feel the cold less than when standing still - you may feel colder when cycling into the wind in the wet than downwind in the dry. For these reasons we don’t define maximum or minimum temperatures. SealSkinz® products can be worn in a conditions ranging from summer warmth through to extreme cold. The thermal rating system provides an indication of the relative warmth of different SealSkinz® hats, gloves and socks - the higher the thermal rating, the colder the weather condition the product can be used in.

Materials The SealSkinz range of WATERPROOF, BREATHABLE socks, gloves and hats are made from materials your customers can trust. ®

Merino wool is much finer than traditional wool and has tiny overlapping scales that case each fibre. These scales are hydrophobic (water repellent). Inside it’s a different story, the fibre core is hydrophilic (highly absorbent). Merino is therefore a wicking fibre and can absorb and release 10 times more moisture than synthetics. Each fibre can absorb up to one third of its own weight in moisture without feeling clammy or wet to touch. In SealSkinz® socks and gloves, the moisture is then wicked through the membrane to keep you feeling warm and dry. Merino wool has the ability to absorb and release moisture to cool or warm the feet, regulating temperature. It also has excellent anti-microbial properties helping reduce odour build-up inside your socks or gloves.

A specially engineered fibre from DuPont which transports perspiration away from the skin towards the waterproof breathable membrane. The uniquely shaped fibres provide great breathability, even when wet, helping you to stay dry in all conditions.

In moisture management and breathability tests versus competition, Coolmax® is proven to have the fastest drying rate, the quickest and most efficient movement of moisture away from the skin, and the best breathability. Even cotton, which absorbs and retains 14 times more moisture than polypropylene, does not wick moisture away from the skin like Coolmax®.

Primaloft® insulation was originally developed under contract for the United States Army as a replacement for Down because Down absorbs water and loses its insulating properties when wet. Primaloft’s® unique composition was patented and the product line was expanded to meet the specific needs of outdoor enthusiasts. The lightweight and soft Primaloft® insulation core creates millions of air spaces suspended in the microfibre mesh. Even when forced into the Primaloft® core, water is repelled and not absorbed by the patented microfibre structure, so Primaloft® keeps you warm even in wet conditions.

Kevlar® Kevlar® is an advanced technology from DuPont that combines high strength with low weight and comfort with protection. Products made with Kevlar® range from protective apparel and sports equipment to automotive parts and ropes used on the Mars Pathfinder. Kevlar® is five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis yet at the same time, it is lightweight, flexible and comfortable. This unique combination of attributes enables it to provide excellent cut, abrasion and tear resistance.

Coolmax® and Kevlar® are registered trademarks of DuPont™. Primaloft® is a registered trademark of Primaloft®.
