    Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

    These socks are amazing. Wool usually makes me itch, but these are not the slightest bit itchy. I have several different styles and weights but I find the light hiking socks best for everyday use throughout Fall, Winter, and Spring. They are soft and cushion my steps. They keep my feet feeling refreshed, and when outside in the zero to sub-zero temperatures, my feet stay warm. They breathe well--no moisture issues. I still wear my very first pair from over ten years ago--they're in excellent condition. Thank you EMS!

      Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

      I bought this on sale from EMS to use during the winter with my Merrell Men's Chameleon 4 Ventilator Gore-Tex and The North Face Snowsquall Mid Boot.

      1. These socks are extremely comfortable to wear and also very warm.

      2. My feet don't sweat because the socks breathe very well since they consist of about 76% merino wool, which has the added benefit of not smelling after heavy use.

      3. These are also perfect to keep your feet warm at night under the covers.

      So why only 4 stars? Because these are described as a "light" hiking sock yet are just as thick as "heavy duty" socks from other companies. Fortunately I size up one full size in hiking and winter footwear because these socks cause at least a half size increase. No way can I wear them in my regular shoes where I have not sized up.

      Bottom line: Quality product but much thicker than expected.

        Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

        I bought pairs if these socks for casual weekend wear, biking, in waders during the summer ETC. I wore out the heals on my first set of six quickly but I was not sure how long it took me so I but another 3 sets 6 pair. With my second set of EMS Smartwool socks I blew out the heals in 4 months on all 6 pairs. When I replaced my "new" EMS Smartwool socks with another produced and mentioned my problem to the cashier I was politely told that "I must be wearing my socks wrong " for them to wear out so quickly. To Ems I am 57 years old I know how to put on a pair of socks!

          Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

          I use these socks daily. They cushion your feet and keep your feet warm in winter and cool in warmer weather. Although they are made mostly of wool they are not at all itchy. They last a long time. I wash them in the washing machine and air dry them to help them last longer, but I have dried them on a low setting and they were fine. The regular hiking socks are great too. They are a little thicker but are also good for every day use. Best socks ever!

          Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

          Bought the same socks 5 years ago and loved them. They're starting to wear through in the typical spots so I bought the same socks just after this Christmas. The new socks are not nearly as form fitting as the old ones. Wearing them around the house they fit loosly and slide around. The size is not the issue. These socks used to have more elasticity that the new model doesn't seem to have. Inside my barn boots that I wear for mucking horse stalls the socks slide around and require being pulled up again and again. More elasticity please.

            I have been wearing these socks for 4 years now. I won't buy anything else. Other socks slip down in my boots and twist around when I'm wearing my crocs in the house. Smartwools stay in place. Also, there have been occasions where i've had to wear them 2 days in a row -- still smelled fresh and were still snug (not stretched out). I wear them in the colder months for regular daily use, walking in the snow in my snowboots, and just lounging around. If they get wet from the rain or snow, the water wicks away from the skin.

                Comments about SMARTWOOL Light Hiking Socks:

                Recently returned from a 9 day motorcycling/camping trip. A pair of SmartWool light hikers endured road, off-road, cool temps, and plenty of precipitation. They were exceedingly comfortable, wicked moisture away with eery efficiency, and kept fairly odor free. I'm impressed.
