Dramatic Decline in Quality
I have used these same socks for a number of years. They are highly breathable and helped my sweaty feet. The first time I bought them they lasted about a year before developing holes. The next time when I replaced the worn pairs they developed holes in about four months. The last time I bought them they lasted less than a month. Backcountry has returned my money but what a disappointment and hassle for what used to be a good product.
