I've always sworn by wool for colder to mid temps, and even in warmer conditions it still earns its place in my pack. Synthetics are great for sunnier/dryer days for me, and I love my synthetic shirts for getting warmer hikes in. When the conditions turn though, I've never been dissapointed wearing wool, while other materials have not lived up to the standard of wool. I really got my affinity for wool from family in Alaska who always love their wool socks and baselayers. It's never let them down, and if its good enough for rural Alaska, I figured it would be good enough for me, and in my adventures its never let me down.
