2nds. Polypropylene has excellent hydrophobic properties, making this assortment of Fox River polypropylene crew socks a terrific buy for cold, damp seasons. Light enough to wear under your wool socks for extra wicking power.

B ought these for hot weather wear. They are as advertised. Had a slight snag in one pair when recv'd. After washing it ended up being a hole. The cost was so cheap I didn't bother complaining. Second pair seems okay.

I use these as liner socks under my wool hiking socks to prevent blisters. They work great for that purpose. Liner socks keep your feet dry and also reduce friction against your skin. I would prefer that the fabric was a little more stretchy (like more expensive liner socks), but can't argue too much at this bargain price. I have mens size 8.5 feet and the size medium liners just barely fit me. Larger feet will be out of luck since they don't come in larger sizes.

I hike in the deserts of Arizona where temperatures can soar. On top of that, my feet sweat profusely, because I like to wear a heavy leather hiking boot. So I'll change socks 10 times in a day just to get across the Grand Canyon. These are perfect for what I want - an extremely light, very shear, quick-drying liner sock. I will likely only need to rotate through three or four pair for a Rim to Rim. Wring them out, hang them on the pack to dry, and they should be ready to go again in an hour or two. The sales pitch says they're for cold and damp seasons - they're equally useful for hot and dry.
