Benefits of graduated compression, with the comforts of merino wool.
Great for long flights or cross-country road trips, Bridgedale Compression Socks offer 15-20mmHg of graduated compression, just under the limit of medical grade compression. Increasing circulation and oxygen supply to your muscles, graduated compression socks reduce the risk of DVT while you travel. Made with a synthetic and merino wool blend, these travel socks resist microbial growth, and the Coolmax polyester pulls moisture away from your skin, leaving your feet dry and comfortable while you travel.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These seem like they would be good compression socks, but I think they are meant more for men than women in their sizing as they just didn't fit quite right and were way too long even with the size S (I wear Women's 6.5) causing me to need to fold them which then also caused more cut off circulation. Also, I noticed the bottom already pilling and showing wear with just the first use, and this got worse the second use.

After 10 hours traveling I can say compression socks work. It was the first time for me using this type of garments and I honestly wasn’t very hopeful it would work. But after long hours sitting in an airplane, my legs didn’t feel tired and I didn’t get the usual numbness and tingling sensation I get when I travel. These are a must in every trip from now on.
