I 'always' wear these socks when I wear my plastic winter hiking boots. Didn't one time this winter and have multiple, large, blisters to show for it. Thus, bought two new pairs of these, so next winter I'll be 'all set' again.

The socks are comfortable and somewhat warm, but one pair of the two that I bought, was not made that well. The inner layer of white fabric stuck through the outer layer of the socks. Sometimes they seem real warm, but other times my feet are quite cold.

I won't be doing much mountaineering soon, but I will be backpacking in the Cascades a lot and I'm always cold. These super warm socks are just the ticket to keep my feet toasty and my spirits high even on the chilliest nights. So glad I finally found them!

Warmest, most comfortable socks I've ever owned. However, it better be cold when you wear these socks. This past winter, I wore a pair for ten hours, in single digits. My feet never got cold. Feet did sweat a bit, but the socks wicked the moisture away. At the end of the day, my feet were not clammy and pruned. Note: Wore with Asolo Echo hiking boots.
