Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome work/hiking socks! I work for a conservation corps and perform lots of trail work, lots of fuel reduction (hiking up and down steep hills removing ladder fuels), invasive species removal, etc. We work in wet cold conditions and smoking hot conditions I love these socks! I used to use smart wool but my friend talked me into trying a pair of these and they offer awesome protection lots cushion extremly comfortable! I go hiking/backpacking on my time off and these socks rock! Very durable and comfortable and lifetime gurantee!

Asked by: Dgrooney
If you do not find that these socks keep you warm while winter hiking, you can add liners for some extra warmth.
