2nds in Tiny Print

Reviewed by Colorado Winter Walker from Colorado on Monday, October 26, 2009
Way at the bottom amid many other descriptive words "2nds" is written. I didn't even see it. The word "irregular" would have caught my eye; even "factory seconds", but not tiny writing of the word '2nd' which I feel is deceiving especially as the socks themselves have the word in large print written directly on the material, "IRREGULAR" so you can't miss it. The liners are very thin so they won't last long but I felt how warm they were immediately & as I bought them to go under some SmartWool socks for Colorado winter walks I think the warmth and uniform feel of the sock outweighs the thin material. I feel the price is a bit high for 'factory seconds'. I would recommend them with reservations. If you are hard on socks, don't buy them. If, like me, your clothing lasts a reasonable amount of time and you don't do long, daily hikes or backpacking, buy them.
  • Best Uses: Daily Use
  • Cons: IRREGULAR NOT MENTIONED, Wears Out Quickly
