Stay light on your feet.
From the desert to the hills, the Smartwool PhD Hunt Medium Crew Sock keeps you light on your feet and comfortable as you search for your prey. The Hunt Medium Crew features a blend of merino wool, nylon, and elastane, which provides equal parts moisture-wicking performance, durability, and stretch to maintain unencumbered mobility. Not to mention, the merino wool adds an element of odor-resistance to keep your feet feeling fresh and fly. The mesh venting aids in breathability, while the medium cushion maintains subtle shock absorption in varied terrain.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I just got back from a hunting trip and used these socks. One thing that sets this sock apart from the rest of the smartwool line is the extra padding in the achilles tendon area. I really enjoy that with my foot's shape. Sometimes I get a little rub with some tight boots, but these relieve that problem. I probably stalked for 4 hours in the morning and about 4 before sunset for 3 days straight and they were still elastic and comfy.
Best All Around Sock
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love using this sock for so many different activities; running, hiking, moderate ski touring. The best part is that the blended knit manages moisture and keeps odor at bay, meaning the backpacking dirtbag in me feels fine wearing this for 2-3 days in a row. They last forever too!
