    Used under a heavy, 10" boot during a 7K mile motorcycle trip through mtns of US and Canada Aug 2011. I had multiple pairs of various ski and temp regulating smart wool hiking socks to use\try. However, by a far margin, the best were these Alpaca socks as they were comfortable the minute I put them on and I never thought about my feet again. Kept them perfect whether riding at high altitude\low temps or blasting across 105+ fahrenheit plains. End of day 10+ hours wearing them (and minimal foot travel) did not have that same feeling or appearance when using sock liners/wool socks or even like the Bridedale wicking (hiking) socks. They held up well and will be a static part of my minimal travel gear from now on.

About Dahlgren

You’d have a hard time convincing a Dahlgren sock lover to switch to another brand. Not only does Dahlgren use fine natural fibers like alpaca and merino wool (both with great capacity for warmth and moisture control), but designs their socks with strategic comfort zones that make the most of technology built into athletic and outdoor footwear. Dahlgren’s patented Dri-Stride system is a two-step construction method that promotes the absorption and transfer of moisture using natural fibers and Wick Spun acrylic. Other foot-friendly amenities include ventilation panels, inverted toe seams, "cling-free" stitches, and non-binding stretch tops that don’t bunch or sag. Try a pair and see for yourself why active people give Dahlgren socks such rave reviews.
