Comfortable socks, no bunching, no lint after taking them off. My "everyday" smartwool women's socks leave lots of lint on my feet after taking them off, the Outdoor socks do not. I wear a 9.5-10 womens shoes and took the large.

    Fantastic standalone sock. I'm never going back to poly liners and wool outers. I tried this out on an expedition with a heavy strap sandle, and in the warm of the day it breathed well, but when we got hit by a surprise snow storm, it insulated and kept my feet surprisingly comfortable. Definitely buying more when they get my size in again.

    I wear these with light hiking shoes. They wick sweat beautifully, don't chafe, and don't develop trail funk. Excellent all around sock.

    Since I started wearing merino wool I have a hard time wearing cotton socks. The only obvious 2nd quality is the large "Irregular" printed on the socks.

    Well, they're socks... But if they're anything like other smartwool products, they'll last for years. One thing to note, the word "irregular" is printed on the bottom/sole of the sock.

    Very nice socks.....dont know if they're $25 nice (Moro), but worth every dollar here on STP. These hold their shape and elasticity better than the rest. Cushioning doesnt flatten out like most socks. These are just superior in every way to the rest ive tried. Read a great review/product test, they wore the socks for 7 days trekking through Nepal. Smartwool merino PhD's were the best. Not only retaining a snug fit and cushion, but they took alot longer to stink (5 days if im correct). After approx 10 washings they're still like new. (ICE BREAKER MERINO, lost all elasticity, and fit after 1 WASH)

    THE NEXT BEST SOCK IS ONE OF THE CHEAPEST, FOX RIVER MERINO OUTDOOR. APPROX $3 & THEY'RE BETTER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE IVE TRIED. ONLY THESE SMARTWOOL SOCKS ARE BETTER, BUT 2.5× MORE $$$. My first choice is fox river, but they're not always available.

    These SMARTWOOL phd's are the best and I try and buy a few when possible, building up a good supply, but for every day life I go for fox river. Those never leave me unhappy and are cheap enough to stockpile when you can
