nice winter work sock

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I picked them up on SAC to wear as a cold weather sock to wear to work with dress shoes and they fit the bill. I can't speak to their durability for hiking but they've held up well for business work. I didn't pay attention to the make up when I bought them or before tossing the packaging, but they are comfortable and keep my feet warm.

Great socks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I use these socks for hiking and they are very comfortable and lightweight, the blend makes for a stretchier sock but I didnt find that they stretched out too much or anything, they do tend to get pretty smelly but a bit of foot powder in my shoes before the hike seemed to help alot. All in all a good decent hiking sock at a great price

Just as I'd hoped.

Light, keep my feet dry, they don't shift when I'm hiking. Couldn't ask for anything else. I am sold on Lorpen socks.

False Advertising

I bought two 2-packs of these because I read BC.com's tech specs, which says they are 75% merino, 15% nylon, and 10% lycra. That's a nice, durable blend with some good stretch.
I received my socks to day, and the Lorpen packaging says they are 37.5% merino, 37.5% ACRYLIC, 15% nylon,and 10% lycra. I bought these things specifically because they did NOT have acrylic in them. Acrylic blend socks wear out much quicker than those blended with nylon. I see BC.com hasn't bothered changing the specs.
The socks are very nice out of the box, but I guarantee they won't last very long. Shame on you, backcountry.com!!!

Responded on

Looks like BC finally changed the tech specs on this page.

Not nearly as much merino as advertised.

Agree with kspc's comment about the tech specs. These socks do not have 75% merino wool. I never would have bought these, even at SAC prices, if I had known the acrylic content was so high. If your feet do OK with that much Acrylic, these are nice fitting socks. Sadly for me, acrylic=swampy feet, which means they are no good in any weather.

Meh

I love merino socks too, although that's a pretty meaningless statement. It's like saying I love good food. I have merino socks from Icebreaker, Smartwool, Darn Tough, and Lorpen. I would rank them in that order. Lorpen wear out faster than any of the others. If you can get at half price, it's a good deal. Otherwise, I'd rather pay more and get the better brands.

The Tech Specs are wrong.

37.5% Merino, 37.5% Acrylic, 15% Nylon, 10% Lycra - Half the 75% Merino content advertised.

Lorpen socks are the LICK

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lorpen makes my favorite socks ever. I am very picky about my socks. They have to fit right, wear well, and make my feet feel liberated vs. constricted. Lorpen fits the bill. I am an avid hiker and I rock sandals with socks (look out ladies) more then full coverage shoes and everything Lorpen holds up well and feels great with no stink.

Love Merino!!

I love merino wool, it's very soft and comfortable. I was skeptical about wool socks because I don't like the itchy feeling, but these aren't ichy. They do what they are supposed to do, keep your feet warm when it's cold and breath well when it's a bit warmer out. I wouldn't suggest these for mid summer hikes in Arizona, but definately a great sock for the other three seasons mountian climates. The only gripe I have is they look like they'll wear out sooner than synthetic socks, after a summer of hiking in the Rockies.
