    Rated2out of5byfromNothing like woolIt claims to prevent blisters with a double layer and wick moisture away. I've only used them once so far for causal wear with my boots for a day. The ac arylic material was very rough. Despite the double layer the roughness did cause discomfort. The seam where the two layers met in the toe was a little bulky for my feet, and they did not feel as though they wicked away moisture particularly well. They may work well for hot summer hikes that are not too strenuous, but I would go wool in any other season.

    Rated5out of5byfromMy new favorite socks!I have traditionally gone with Wigwam socks and have always had a great experience with them. That being said, these are my new favorites. Extremely comfortable for all activities from hiking, backpacking, woodworking (lots of standing on concrete), etc.. Highly recommended.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat as winter socksHave worn these socks several times while hiking and snowshoeing this winter. They have been great. No blistering with new boots and have kept my feet warm without the addition of foot warmers. Would have no problem buying them again.

    Rated5out of5byfromLove these socks!!I've used Wright socks for years for running. These are more cushioned, which I need as I age and as I am heavier. They are just what I was looking for.

    Rated1out of5byfromI see why they're on close outI bought them because they give the impression they have extra cushioning. They are much thinner than expected. They also have a big, thick seam in front that has to be positioned perfectly to prevent chaffing. But when you start walking they move and I feel the seam around my toes. The material is good and, other than the seam, they feel great. I'm going to return them, spend the extra $$ and get REI Item # 664970.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent Hiking SocksThese truly have dual layers. I tried these out on a 20 mile backpacking trip in the Arkansas mountains. They worked great, no blisters. The socks are a little thicker than others, but they fit comfortably in my normal hiking shoes.

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome valueThere are truly two layers to this sock. They will articulate / slide, so putting on is a bit more cumbersome than some socks. They are not wool and although they breath fairly well, will retain more odor than many other socks. They wear faster than some high-end hiking socks I've tried, but are cerainly good for >1000 miles in my experience. I've been wearing them as my everyday sock for ~2 years. I hike, backpack, and jog with them. I average ~12 miles of walking per day. I have a few foot conditions that many of us older active people acquire and these socks seem to help a lot. I have also kept a few spare pairs for newbie or occasional backpacking friends. They seem to prevent blisters and make already injureed feet more tolerable, much like a good hiking sock and liner combination. Finally, while they are not thin, they are 3 season socks and not meant to provide much warmth. If you have realistic expectations, you can't beat these.
