Wendell R.wrote a review of Smartwool Hike Light Crew Sock - Men's on December 20, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought two pair and used them on an Aoudad Hunt in 30-40 degree weather. We walked and climbed a fair amount and they struggled with wicking moisture out of a Gore-Tex Lowa Zephyr boot. It’s hard to keep dry in a boot that doesn’t breath well, so I’d say they did the best any sock could do. I highly recommend “Smartwool Hikeliner Crew Sock” as a liner. I have found these liners to either control the moisture better, or at least wick the moisture away from your skin. The liners make all the difference in the world in comfort. I love these socks and of all the smartwool socks I have (heavy pairs and light pairs) these are the best for moderate to strenuous activities in cold weather or for sitting still or light activity in mild (40-50 deg) weather. Get the liners to keep dry in any situation though. They do make a lot of difference!
