These socks were great
I love these socks. They fit well and my feet never felt too hot. My feet also didn't sweat so they didn't smell.
I wash these socks with my regular laundry, hanging them to dry and i found that they are not pilling. I even hand washed them when I was on vacation and they came out great.
I definitely recommend these socks just make sure you order the right size.k
I think that I might have last years model of these socks and they were super nice when I pulled them out of the package but after wearing them for a bit and a couple washes they started to pill up and fell apart. I don't have much confidence in Lorpen anymore but maybe they've changed their quality.
Good deal - medias económicas
Stay put, no bunching, great padding, colors and design compliment your style when you're kicking it with the shoes off at the in-laws.
Again, nothing special fo this sock. They work with jeans, and are good to run with (under tights) for snowy runs. I like this company, and will continue to buy from them.
I don't usually rate socks, but these are hands down the most comfortable socks I've worn. The merino wool is soft and the shape is supportive and the L fit me perfectly.
I just took three pairs of these socks to Gannett Peak, each pair worn for about 15 miles. All three pairs came back with holes in them. Despite the propensity for holes, the socks are comfy. All in all, i would recommend another sock.
Great fit, breaths well, and dries quick. Doesn't get that funky smell after wearing them for a few days. These may be my most favorite pair of hiking socks and I even wear these to work. I like these more than smartwool.
Comfortable and secure.
Quite a snug fit, just the right amount of padding on the toes and heel, felt very secure. Does the job- long enough for all my hiking boots.
Soft to the touch and ample cushion
Got this off of SAC for 1/3 of price. Should have bought another pair esp at that price.
They are not THAT long as others have mentioned, but that depends on what size you get. I have a size 9 foot and got these socks in medium. They go up approx 6" from my heal which is a good distance if you are wearing boots for winter excursions.
They are as thick as my "lightweight hiker" Thorlos and just as comfy. I found it to be even more breathable than my Thorlos. I didn't get any blisters.
As someone else already mentioned, the construction and features are like those of other expensive brands.
LOVE 'EM. LOVE 'EM. LOVE 'EM!!!!!
These socks were good they served the purpose of keeping our feet dry and warm -however they don't wash well. They get very washed out looking after going thru the washing machine. I wouldn't buy them again because I have two boys and we pass on the socks- just hope they last!
Great sock, but long
I love the crew version of this sock, but the ones I got wear close to knee-high. This is a great weight for light backpacking, but if you are looking for something even more streamlined, check out the Lorpen Tri-Layer Light Hiker Crew Sock.
Great Merino's for the Toes!
I have many pair of Lorpen socks and these are definitely my favorite for the summer. I've got 3 pair and put in over 250 miles this year alone in them up in the hills. They're holding up extremely well! These socks in particular are extremely thin and breathe very well. They are also very soft, typical of Merino, so there's not an itchy problem on your feet or legs. Everything from Lorpen fits true to size according to the chart backcountry.com provides.
What size should i get for a shoe size of...
What size should i get for a shoe size of 10?
I am also a size 10 and Large fits me perfectly!
Used these socks on packpacking trip this weekend and they were great. Soft and just the right amount of thickness and cushion for my shoe. I would consider this a light/medium sock. In 90 degree heat they dried easily on lunch break. NO BLISTERS even on rocky, steeper trail that I was not really ready for. I did not use a liner sock because there was not enough spare room in my shoe. I purchased the cream so ticks could be spotted easily. Lisa in Maryland
Very nice light-weight sock
This sock has a lot of bells and whistles reserved for a more expensive sock. It has articulated weaving in the arch and heel, and a very snug, skin-like fit throughout the foot. It is very light, yet maintains a good level of padding and support. Well worth the price.
It feels like I am wearing cotton (merino wool) balls on my feet. I do agree with the other review that "they are a little thick" than what I consider a light hiker to be.
This is a great sock, you can't go wrong with merino! It's the only thing I let touch my skin when I am in the backcountry whether its the summer or winter or anything between. Just a quick warning, these are 'light' hiking socks but I would not recommend them if it's hotter than like 75 degrees, they are a little thick but still wick away the moisture well and keep you cool. Merino's temperature control has to be experienced to be believed!
