I LOVE these socks! I've depended on Bridgedale socks from Sierra Trading Post for years, and these do not disappoint! The weave is nice and tight, but the socks feel soft and smooth. I havent' tested them on the trail yet, but they seem extremely breathable. I was concerned at first about the height, but they give me about an inch and a half of sock above my Ahnu hikers, and about 2 inches above my Keen Pyrenees Hiker. Keeping cool hiking in the deep south in mid-summer is majorly important to me, and the somewhat reduced height means cooler leg! I ordered the small because I have strangely short yet wide feet. Though my shoe size is normally a 7-7.5, these socks fit PERFECT in the small! I'm not suggesting they run large, but rather they fit my unusual foot. They are well-constructed. I'm sure they will last for many years of abuse just as my other Bridgedale's have!

I have a recent obsession with wool blend socks. These are some of my favorites. I wash them and dry them by machine, and they hardly show any wear. They're very soft, not scratchy, and they have great cushioning.

I purchased three pair of light hiking socks for my wife for Christmas this year. The order was processed and shipped as expected, however, when I received the package of socks one of the socks indicated on the packaging that it was a 2nd. I called and spoke to a customer service representative. When I advised her of the problem she indicated that it was right on the product description. I went back to my order and looked at the product page to find that the only mention of it was 2nd. It didn't say, this product is a 2nd, or please be advised, this product is a 2nd. One word, followed by the actual description of the sock. It was thrown in almost in an attempt to disguise the fact that it was a 2nd, in my opinion. When I mentioned that the notice of the socks being 2nds was hardly visible, the customer service rep said, sorry, it's on the page. I told her I would not be shopping at Sierra Trading Post again.
Note to future customers, the Bridgedale X-Hale Light Hiker Socks are 2nds, and Customer Service doesn't care.

I bought a pair of these months ago and they are my favorites over dozens of pairs I own by Smartwool and other brands. I'm stocking up right now on some more! They fit like a glove and don't cause blisters. Also stand up better to wear than Smartwool, which always wear out pretty darn quickly in the heel.
