I am working with the forest service to build trails and clean up litter this summer in Arizona. This involves a lot of hiking in addition to using tools and moving through a lot of brush. I needed thicker socks inside the boots I wear to work to last through a ten hour day.

Bought a pair of these from STP at super price, got 'em, wore 'em and then threw out all my other socks and ordered more of these and the mid weight as well. Comfortable, super performance whether on the trail or just kicking around town - moisture wicking and durable. You can not go wrong with these

The thickest Merino wool sock I have found, great cushion and warmth as long as the fit in
your boot is not too tight. They feel just a bit snug in boots I usually wear with medium
weight socks. For length, the medium fits a size 10 just right. In moderate use, I've not
seen the heel wearing thin as in other socks. The elastic is spread evenly so they don't constrict
your leg at the top band. All around a great sock. Early this morning I checked out
tracks in light snow at 4 degrees wearing just these socks in some ventilated rubber crocs--no
thought of cold feet at all.

I've purchased the Goodhew Heavyweight Expedition Socks several times before and will buy them again. I wear wool year round for it's wicking characteristics but even compared to other wool, these are quite amazing: they are not only warm but they wick very well and wear a long, long time. (Don't over-dry them.)The only problem I have recommending them is that everyone will buy them and they will never go on sale. So...in short, they leave your feet cold and clammy, they smell like rotten eggs and I heard they reduce your testosterone PERMANENTLY. You probably don't want these ;)
