Great sock, but with one small problem

    2 pair for under $20 is a pretty good deal in the first place. The socks are warm, fit nice, and are quite comfortable. One sock, however, developed a hole near the ankle, on the front (see those grooves in the picture...right there).

    BC.com has a great return policy and these socks have a lifetime warranty, but, unfortunately, this model is out-of-stock. In other words, I can't exchange it for a non-holed sock; I can either return both pairs (even the one that has no problems) and get a refund or get the refund and purchase another item with the exchange value.

    Neither is a great option, in my opinion, so I'm going to keep both pairs and use the (slightly) busted pair for lounge socks/fall yard work. All in all, though, (if these were still available,) I would recommend these socks to others.

    Update: went classic skiing in the good pair this weekend (low 20s, light wind) and I didn't think about my feet once while I was skiing. Not hot, not cold, just perfect. Here's hoping you have a pair or that BC will get the next model available soon!

    Decent Sock

      Worn and washed them 5 or 6 times and so far they've held up pretty well. Pretty thin sock so it doesn't bunch up in a boot, but wore them in sigle digit weather yesterday and definitely wished I had something warmer.

      These socks are awesome!

        These socks are awesome! They are really comfortable to wear, provide a little extra padding in my boots, and keep my feet toasty snowboarding. I wear a size 12 shoe and I'm about 6'1", the L/XL can stretch up onto my knee, definitely covers the entire calf.

        Good stuff for good price.

          Just came back from skiing, worn both socks, I am size 6,5 or 37 for Europe, bought the S/M size. The socks are too long, it is not comfortable at all to have them above the knee, easy to get blisters at the back of the knee on the other side they stay up so you can easy put them more of them just above were your boot ends. I am 158cm(5,2"?). They stay put all day and that is really nice. I have had some problem with pressure injuries, but these ones were really comfy, with no prints or anything to make the surface uneven. They are not superwarm and were to cold for me skiing, then I am also one of them that freezes alot. They stay pretty dry, don't smell even after several days wear. Overall good sock for good price, but could be shorter and a little warmer.

          Backcountry.com Midweight Merino Ski Sock - 2 Pair

            Love these socks, only I'm 6'2" and the S/M goes all the way up to my knee, and just a little bit above that. They're very comfortable, but the stitching on the toes is letting go, and I'm getting holes in the toe as well. I've only had these for about 2 and a half months.

            Just like you'd expect

              Merino equals never-stink-o. I've worn these each several times and been amazed that they don't ever get funky. I wash em anyway, just in case. Yeah, they do come up a little over my knee. But at least they stay there instead of sagging down and bunching up. Oh yeah, my feet are warm when skiing and they're great for wearing with shorts while out ballin' in the streets!

              This sock is the cock of the wock

                Great sock for the price! I prefer wool socks to synthetics as they keep their shape much better after repeated used and don't get "brittle" and fall apart when dried in the hot dryer or by the campfire or when you have to use your camp stove to dry everything after skiing into that creek that i told you about last week which was covered with ice but today turned out not to be, dumbass.

                People buy socks according to their shoe size. If you don't supply a conversion chart, how can you decide what small, medium, large & extra large socks convert to in shoe sizes?

                I have Raynauds syndrome, and I am having a terrible time trying to keep my feet warm, especially the front part. What are the very WARMEST socks that you would recommend? No electric socks, please
