Compression works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These socks are thinner and less insulated than the Ph. D light snowboard sock, but they are more comfortable and still hold that silky new sock feeling after months of use. The material is thinner, but they also didn't shrink nearly as bad after washing them a bunch of times like the Ph. D sock did.

SmartWool is the smart choice for socks

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

I have these in the Ultra Light as well as the Light version now and I am going to be ordering more pairs. Great for sitting in the office, snowboarding, lounging after carving the mountain, or for working outside at the resort. My feet are staying very warm and dry. No problem at all with foot stench since this wool is amazing at wicking away any sweat as well as have great antimicrobial action. I would recommend these to everyone who has feet and wears socks on a daily basis.

Great socks for bluebird days

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

These socks are snug and fit great for ski boots. I wouldn't wear this when it was storming outside, but for most of my ski days in bounds these socks are perfect! Highly suggest these to anyone.
