People argue over boxers vs. briefs. These boxer briefs have enough support for the brief guys and enough freedom for the boxer guys. These aren't compression shorts, nor are they particularly well suited for high intensity activities (basketball,running), but are excellent for hiking, nordic skiing, and general wear. Very comfortable.

It can be hard to find a great Merino wool sock for nordic skiing. A lot of the ski socks have downhill in mind (mesh on the shin), not nordic. This sock, however, provides great arch support and warmth. Use these and at least you won't have to worry about your feet while on the trails. Knocked down from 5 stars only because white is not always the best color for gear.

But if sweat in your eyes is a problem when you bike, don't go for a sweatband or wrap or whatever, put on a sweet cap like this one and you're good to go.

The only downside is it is cotton (and I'm usually a merino junkie), so it can get pretty heavy if you pouring out sweat, but it will keep it out of your eyes.

These socks are awesome...if you're looking for a wool sock that doesn't add weight, is incredibly breathable (mesh on top), and offers little padding. Don't expect this sock to cushion you for anything, because it won't. But, if you like to have as little sock as possible between you and your shoe, but want that sock to keep your feet dry, then get this sock.

Never have had a complaint against Darn Tough. They make amazing socks. With the over the calf ski sock here, you get coverage for your lower leg, arch support, comfort, and (why not?) simple style. The best part, if you find out the sock isn't what you thought or if it somehow wears out, you've got Darn Tough's Lifetime Warranty. What's not to like?

I wouldn't say these are the best socks for biking or for running or for hiking, but if I could only have one sock for all these activities, I'd pick this one. It has a good amount of padding where you need it, it is breathable on top so your feet don't overheat, and provide quite a bit of arch support.
The downside is that they've worn out quicker (mostly from pilling) than some of my other wool socks, but these also get a ton more usage, too. Good overall sock.
