    Killer socks.

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

    I wear these all the time. Outdoors, running around or just around the house, they're a great all the way around. Comfy, warm and all around great socks. Great for hiking/backpacking.

    great product

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These socks feel fantastic on your feet and keep them cool and wick sweat however I switched them out for smartwools Medium cushion crew sock for wearing boots because these didn't have enough padding in the heal to prevent blisters in stiff boots. Now I just use them with other footwear and they are fantastic.

    These are my go to sock for more than just hiking. I wear they around town and I've even taken them mountain biking a few times.



    They keep my feet warm but not hot. Nice support keeps them from bunching up and creating blisters.

    My favorite sock

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

    I've used these socks on a month long backpacking trip in the snowy and wet Olympic National Park, over a month and a half long backpacking trip through Europe, hiking in southern Utah, trail running, and mountain biking. I even used these socks skiing once. They always keep my feet dry and they always stay in place. Nothing annoys me more than a sock that moves around and doesn't stay in place around the calves. The merino wool is super comfortable as well. For being a light weight sock, I found these super warm while backpacking through the snow during the summer . Obviously a medium to heavy weight version of this sock would be more suitable for winter pursuits.

    The most perfect sock

    HEY! Got great results in the field!

    Guys guest what? found another place where the awesome tech of these socks can provide great results, and that's is in the soccer field!, I used to end up with lots of blisters and since I started using these socks, that is all in the past.

    Awesome sock

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

    I am very pleased with the performance of these socks. I wore them all day for multiple days with great results. They kept my feet dry and fresh all day in boots. very comfortable. I would recommend to anyone that has to do a lot of moving in warmer weather.

    Add me to the satisfied customer list

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    After reading all the positive reviews I decided to go ahead and try these socks. I wore them on a 3 day backpacking trip and found them to have more than adequate cushioning. They were supremely comfortable and most important, kept my feet warm during a cold night. This was my first experience with Smartwool socks and I was VERY pleased.

    really nice

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

    like all smartwool socks, these fit snug like second skin. no seams felt. no sag. merino rocks for moisture management and anti-stink. only drag is that smartwool socks don't have the best wear characteristics, especially in the heels. however, their warranty dept is good for replacing them (as just happened w/ my PhD Ski Compressions).

    Another great present for the sister!

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    I bought these for my sister as a Christmas present and she has nothing but good things to say! She wears them for casual city-wear and they keep her feet nice and toasty in the DC winter! She is a size 8 and says the medium is perfect! Great present!

    Amazing Socks

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I wasn't sure what I thought about wool socks as I had a few pairs in the past and they always made my feet sweat like crazy. These Outdoor Light Crew's absolutely do not do that. I don't know what the difference is but they are by far one of the most comfortable socks I've ever owned. I will definitely be getting a couple more pairs.

    Great all around outdoor sock

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I wear these socks for mountain biking, road biking, hiking, trail running and even they are great for casual wear. I'm in Utah so they especially are great to keep your feet warm on the bike in cold weather rides. They also dry quickly and don't stink like many synthetic socks. If you want them to last, always let them air dry after washing them in cold water. After a few years of using these socks, they are pretty much all I use now. I consider these socks a key component of my outdoor gear collection.
