Hey, we're in the news!
We like to think we've created some of the most kickass next-to-skin products out there, but don't take our word for it. From Freeskier, to Ski Magazine, we are feeling the love from recent reviews. Check out what the world is saying about le bent socks and baselayers. As our friends at Freeskier Mag say, "Le Bent? Le duh."
"For those who put foot comfort at the top of their priority list, look no further than Le Sock Snow Light from Le Bent... ski from dawn 'til dusk in these babies, you won't regret it." - Freeskier Resort Guide
"Yes we embrace roughing it, but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate the softest fabric against our skin. The Le Base 200's blend of bamboo rayon, merino, and lycra 'felt as soft as my favorite old cotton tee,' says one tester. Another liked the buttery feel so much she slept in it at home." - Backpacker Magazine Gear Guide
"Backcountry veteran, Cody Townsend, teamed up with Le Bent to create the Le Send BC Touring sock - created specifically for the uphill. To keep the footsies toasty, a double thickness in the toe accomodates the wider tow boxes found in many touring boots and the compression normally found in the forefoot of the sock was removed to avoid vascular constriction. For increased breathability, an innovative weave pattern on the upper forefoot - combined with Le Bent's signature blend of merino wool and rayon from bamboo - naturally wicks moisture away from the feet. Silicone strips on the heel also elimate slipage, which lead to nasty blisters. Backcountry shops, take notice." - Freeskier Trend book
"The Le Send Cody Townsend sock is specifically designed to be a ski touring sock. It aims to deliver comfort and efficiency on the uphill, combining material blends and technical features that the Australian brand says result in warmer, dryer, and more secure feet. " - Outdoor Insights
"Get the ultimate in versatility, performance, and comfort with the le bent men's Le Base Crew. Going skiing? Hiking? Anywhere outdoors? Don't leave this baselayer at home... Le Bent? Le duh." - Freeskier Buyer's Guide
"Australian brand Le Bent brings its base layers to the US market for the first time this season. Our editors' favorite is the lightweight Le Base, made from a rayon/merino blend, which keeps it super soft but adds just the right amount of stretch to keep you moving comfortably. " - SKI Magazine Gear Guide
"Working with backcountry skier, Cody Townsend, Le Bent engineered this sock specifically for ski touring, with a focus on uphilling. Construction details include extra thickness in the toe box, strategically placed weaves that enhance breathability, a proprietary merino wool and rayon fabric blend, and silicon strips on the heel to minimize slippage while touring.
