Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I was a die hard Smart Wool fan, but things have changed. They do wick very well and feel comfortable, but they just don't hold up the way they use to. After about a year of moderate use the toe area begins to show signs of wearing through. I find this to be true of all Smart Wool socks. Mind you I keep my nails short too. They do not prevent hot spots that well either. I have broken in a few pairs of boots trying to use these, but had to switch to my Darn Tough socks. I would recommend Darn Tough any day over Smart Wool. Darn Tough reminds me of what Smart Wool use to be back in the mid 90s when I started using Smart Wool

I wear it day in and day out. The "Light" has the right amount of cushion for me. I found that with anything less than that, the "Ultra Light" socks, I wore out the front of the sock before I could really put them to use. Nothing sucks more than your toes poking through the front of your sock. Maybe sand in your underwear.

I should have gotten the Classic instead. The wide mouth is good, yes its easy to fill up no matter what the water source is, but it sucks to drink from if you are on the move. You have to be completely motionless to drink from it. Otherwise you will suffer the consequences of everything ending up on the front of your shirt/jacket. The cap doesn't leak too. Really is bullet proof.

I really put these to the test with a two week long trek up in Vermont carrying a 85 lb load, in the middle of July. No blisters, no hot spots. I wear a 10.5 and the large fit perfect for me. It is on the thick side and you must have room to spare in your boot because it will snug it up.

Planned to use them for trekking around the Catskills. But the trip got cancelled, and since I already started breaking them in, I just continued to use them. They are fantastic around NYC, and excellent for the Fall and Winter. When I finally did use them for some light day trekking (10 miles), they proved their worth.

This jacket works great as a stand alone or as a layer under a heavier jacket. The thumb loops provide a lot more hand coverage, which works great when I'm running in colder weather. The hand gets covered all the way down the knuckles. I'm 175, 6', and a large works fine for me.

I went by the sizing chart and picked up a large. I should have gotten a medium. I'm 6', 175 lbs, 34" waist. Large fits good everywhere and then goes all sorts of baggy around my crotch. I have a fat Sicilian ass too. They are far superior than the Arc'teryx EON SLW Bottom (put a hole in them just putting them on).
