I know it takes more than these liners but they really do work well. I wear Altra Olympus shoes (one full size "too big") and fairly heavy merino wool socks over these liners but the system worked and worked well. These liners are well made and comfortable. I wear a 9.5 in most shoes (I wore 10.5 Altra's on this hike) and a medium sock fit perfect.

I put this shirt through the wringer at the Grand Canyon when I hiked Rim to Rim. Initially, I bought this shirt to wear as an extra layer in the morning (low 40s) and for some sun protection middle of the day (if needed). I wore a 150 gram merino wool t-shirt under the Simms Big Sky and was quite comfortable all morning. I stuffed in into my daypack after lunch and hiked in a t-shirt till around 3pm. On the ascent, I could feel the back of my arms burning (it was mid to high 90s). I stopped and pulled off the t-shirt and put on the Big Sky long sleeve shirt. It literally felt like putting on an air conditioner. I was sweating pretty good but the shirt quickly and efficiently pulled the moisture off my body and the shirt dried quickly. My arms felt almost cool and my core was very comfortable. This is a great looking and well made shirt. It also preforms in full sun as advertised. The western styling is a nice touch on a technical shirt.
