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.

    These feel like im wrapping my feet in a cocoon of snug kittens. Not as thick as the lorpen light hiker, im in Fla & ordered lightweight for a reason. These socks are amazing, I was turned on to them reading a comparison test. They wore these and many more for up to a week at a time in the Himalayas. The Phd's won, by a lot.....except for price. $23-$25 ?????? Im not Rockefeller, no way I could do it. Then I found this sight, got some diff brands, cheapest $4.63....better than ive ever worn. The lorpen were more and I could really tell they deserved it.....if I were hiking. Im not, mine are in combat boots (not avail in 4E, so no room for the Lorpens).

    However, I called my parents, my Dad needed boot socks and I talked him into trying the $4.65 outdoor sock (67% merino wool) and he couldn't be happier. My Mom has be mainly bedridden, mainly leaving the house for dialysis, which chills her to the bone. (Lol, no luck getting them in the icebreaker merino wool shirts....yet. I have three and they are wonderful). Knowing she puts very little wear and tear on socks, so longevity will balance the cost over time, I suggested they splurge and get her the PHD's in heavyweight for house socks and dialysis. Approx $11.50 per, they were an instant hit. My Mom lives in them know. A week passed, I was looking thru the 85% discounts that arrive every few days in my email and sure enough I saw lightweight Phd's for $7.67 (approx, lots of meds, but I think im close). I got 2 pair and wasn't disappointed. These socks are worth $23-$25 every day of the week. Exceptionally comfortable and well made. Its a treat putting them on, feels like kittens are hugging your feet. .

    I am a wildland firefighter and a good sock is essential for a long hard day on the line. These socks fit that bill perfectly. I wear these socks up to four days at a time for 16 hours a day and they hold up. I wear a large and its a snug fit, not to tight but snug enough that blisters don't develop. I can hike all day without getting blisters or stinging on the bottom of my feet like I get from other socks. I highly recommend these socks for other Firefighters or those who are avid hikers.
    Even though my feet sweat during the day, I spread these out at night and by morning they are dry and do not smell.

    Could be me but the quality, fit, and ability to stay dry seem lesser in quality than my Smartwools of the past. I hope this isn't a continuing trend with Smartwool.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by nunnone from Alabama on Sunday, May 18, 2014
    Wore these to work every day for a week now (no, not the same pair). Working outside in 40-85 degree temps. On my feet all day. Feet and legs never felt so good at end of day. Very comfortable and supportive. Socks fit snugly and do not bunch. No odor. Thought I'd never find socks I liked better than the SmartWool lite-hikers that I'm still using. I was wrong! Wearing with Asolo Echo hiking boots. Great combination.
