    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    REI Merino Wool Hiking Socks is rated 4.2222 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I've purchased this sock for years. About 6 months ago, being a guy and hating to sort socks, I purchased 14 pairs and threw out all my old socks so I could just reach into my drawer and pull out two socks and "go to town". Big mistake. After 6 months of light (but daily) use the same seam in the heel completely separates. I've already thrown out half of the socks! I don't know what changed in their manufacturing process but it wasn't good. Very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Socks These are the only socks I wear on a daily basis. They regulate temperature and deal with moisture well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a patriot's sock I found out years ago the merits of wool socks here in the hot sonoran desert of Arizona. I was taught wool keeps you warm, which it does, but in the heat of the summer you don't even notice the warmth as the wool is wicking moisture and evaporative cooling! this rei wool sock is a repeat purchase, I've been hiking with them for years. they also fill my requirement as a patriot to buy made in the u.s.a. to go with my made in the u.s.a. danner mtn light boots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big bang for the buck One of the best socks you can buy for the price. Use both the REI Medium hiking sock and the Danner. On my feet hiking the range 8-10 hours a day and these socks give me at least 75 days of usage. I start 5:00am when its cold and work into the heat of the day and my feet and toes keep very comfortable, even when wet. I gladly recommend them as a NPS and DOD professional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Socks These REI brand socks last way longer than the Smartwools that I have owned. They are the perfect weight and fit. The tops eventually stretch out after a year or so of daily use, but that happens to all of them. These are my go-to wool socks.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Same I bought four pair of these online about two month after purchasing four pair in the CS store. The ones I received in the mail are noticeably different in size and thickness. I'm 99.9% sure that they should be exactly the same based on the description online and what I bought in store. Am a little disappointed that I'll have to make a trip to the store to be sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than SmartWool! I've been a long-time fan of SmartWool but I'm sold on these REI hiking socks. They are much softer and comfortable than SW, and lower in price! After 5 washings, they have held up like brand new. Ask me again though in a few months! So far, I'm sold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect socks! I originally bought these socks to hike the Appalachian Trail in October. They kept my feet warm and I had no problems with blistering or bunching. Living in Austin, Texas, I tend to not need too thick of a sock. So far it has worked for everything I've needed it to. I've also worn these mountain biking and they are perfect for that too.
