Great for hiking and camping!

If your hiking boots are snug with regular cotton socks, these will make them tight. They are thick but that's how I like my hiking socks and my boots were purchased with that in mind. They will be great come camping/backpacking season; warm when it's cool and cool when it's warm. These socks are SUPER comfy, fit true to size, and appear to be well made (though only time will tell). I wouldn't travel with these as they are pretty bulky. I am not a die-hard SmartWool user so my review is unbiased. ;) My only improvements to the socks would be: make them in white and black for those of us who don't want to be so flashy and make a "short" version. I prefer socks that don't bunch at the ankles (nor do i like them to go halfway up my calf).
