Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Leaked a little the first time. Leaked a little more the second time. Completely emptied out on me the third time. I am in the military and used it on a frequent basis. The cap is a bitch-and-a-half to get on right. And even when you think you got it on, forget it you are gonna get wet. Along with everything you own in that pack. Look elsewhere for one that works well.. Unless of course you are looking to take a constant shower while packing around, and if you do decided to buy this make sure you bring soap. Might as well get clean while it empties out on you.

I own several pairs of these, and several pairs of Smart Wool socks of the similar type. I have put them all through the ringer. The Smart Wool socks did not fair well (wore out around the toes fast). The Darn Tough socks held up nicely. I like the little extra padding around the heel and toes. It does not change the fit of the shoe, and after training for several half-marathons it helped. I also like the extra material on the top of the sock in the rear and front. This stops any rubbing from your running shoe. I often find this a problem with other no-show running socks. If it helps I run in Hoka (Conquest 2 and Bondi 3), and Altra (Torin and Lone Peak).

Easy

I have been training for several half-marathons here in the NYC area this lovely winter of 2015, and this shirt has been a huge help in keeping me warm and dry. When the temp hits 30-45 this shirt alone is perfect. When the temp hits the 5-25 range I put on a lighter weight Icebreaker under it. Of course in both instances I have a jacket as the outermost garment. I have used a Smartwool and an Arctyrex for an outer garment. The moral of the story is this shirt rocks.

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.

UPDATE:
Two years later and many treks behind me in these socks and they are still kicking it.

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).
