Great SocksVerified Buyer Reviewed by Phaedrus from Michigan on Monday, March 19, 2018As always, Thorlo comes through. I'd rate these as a medium weight. Could be worn in winter, definitely not summer. They are soft and well cushioned.

Thorlo Hiking Socks - Crew (for Men)Verified Buyer Reviewed by Paulh from Washington State on Tuesday, May 16, 2017They are great. Been wearing them for decades. They last a long time, wick moisture well and cushion the feet. I recommend turning them inside out when washing to prolong lifespan.

THE MOST AMAZING SOCKS EVERVerified Buyer Reviewed by Refugee Worker from Washington on Monday, January 23, 2017We bought these to donate to homeless men! Why? because the are warm, wick and can go a long time without washing. Most folks donate cotton, which is fine for Southern states, but here in the NW it is WET AND RAW. One humorous thing however, two of the fellas running the program eagerly accepted one pair each. Now whenever I see them at church, they are all about the socks! But then, there were two less for the homeless. GOD BLESS (a wee poem).

The bestVerified Buyer Reviewed by DB from Southeast on Monday, May 19, 2014We have used these Orlon socks for serious hiking. Crossed the Grand Canyon in August and they worked perfect for us.
great socksReviewed by someone from CT on Thursday, February 27, 2014I bought these for my father-in-law. They are the ONLY socks he wears so it was nice that they were on sale here. He lives in the desert and likes these socks because they keep his feet cool and dry and are comfortable for everyday wear.

“Thorlos rate their socks by level of protection from 1 to 3 - 3 being the highest amount of padding and protection. I just purchased what I believe to be these socks at your Reno store, and the ones I purchased were Level 3 - Maximum protection level. In the product specs page, these are described as medium protection. Can you clarify if these are indeed Protection Level 3 Tholos?”
I believe these are KX hiking socks. I do not know if Thorlo has a numeric rating system but this is the product description from Thorlo.com for this specific sock. In addition to this product description, there are numerous other pages, on their website, that explain the benefits of Thorlos.

I purchased these socks from the on-line store without comparing them to other socks in a store. I am fully aware of the importance of
support socks - as a runner. Based on my knowledge with running socks I would give these a a medium level for support.
They are the right length for protection around your ankles while wearing hiking boots.
