I love these despite the fact that they do not look like the photo after about 5 minutes on my legs. Good thing I am not trying to make much of a fashion statement. Icebreaker seemed to have a tighter weave, but did not stretch the 36 inseam I needed for comfort. Smartwool also seems to have done a better job in figuring out how to take the little remaining itch of wool, so they get my pick despite the fact that they get holes much quicker and do not come in as many cute colours. I am tough on my cloths. 170# and long legged, a medium works great! I wish they had an expedition weight. LL Bean makes a nice TALL size that comes pretty darn close! But Smartwool is my pick for overall performance on the trial, curled up at night, and kicking about town in a skirt. Heck, why take them off to shower? I live in my Smartwool!!!
