Great for backpacking, hiking, or Mtn Biking!
I used these on a desert backpacking trip, they held up well. No blisters or badly placed seams that create hot spots. They are not too tall and not too short. I was wearing low-top Montrail Vitesse shoes and Chaco sandals during the trip and they were fabulous! I got four pairs and am thinking about getting more. I have since used these socks for other hikes and several Mtn Bike adventures, they are awesome.
