Working outdoors, these keep my feet warm & dry. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tatayo to expensive against performance
I used them in a 48 degrees road ride, and dis not perform better than standard wool socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Linton Good concept- very poor design
I'm a supporter of Gore, with several pieces of very satisfied kit, so it seemed on fitting (bad description in this case) that I shell out a bucketful of dosh on a pair of Windstoppers as part of my winter cold feet protection 'recipe'. I attempted to pull the first sock over my heel with my thumbs inside to get the grip - like you do with normal socks. I knew that the opening was elasticated but it really wasn't... and I tore the stitching because there's not as much 'give' as there should be. I was so upset, but so keen to try these out that I kept the socks and repaired the opening stitch-work. Now I can just about slide these on, with extreme care, and without my thumbs inside. It's tricky, but at least I get to keep the socks that are so good apart from this obvious design fault of the opening just not being elasticated enough!!! You see, I bought some for my wife at the same time. She’s a UK 5 and there was no way she was going to get anywhere near her angle. Needless to say that they were sent back. She now makes do with Only Hot iron powder warmers at £3 a pop!
Gore didn’t obviously try these out on humans before they put them out for sale. I don’t normally go into this much detail on a review, but I feel that with a little forethought Gore could’ve had a best-seller here. As it is my next windstoppers will not be Gore… a shame.
