Being as lightweight as they are, they're surprisingly warm! I live in Alaska and Smart-wool is my go to brand when it comes to socks, but these certainly exceeded my expectations. They keep your feet warm and they're not bulky, by any means. Although, I don't know how they perform when wet.
I bought these socks for my NYC brother who has a long walk to/from the subway. He, my brother, is very hard to please, some might say annoyingly so. Well, Gilbert, (not his real name,) loves these socks, says they are comfortable and warm, who knew?
I normally don't like wool, it's just a personal preference, I feel it too itchy most of the time. But I love these socks for skiing, it doesn't matter if it's bitter cold December morning or a warm May Day in the back these socks keep my feet comfy and don't itch. I really like them and will be a loyal Smartwool customer for a long time.

"Excellent winter sports sock! Very comfy and warm"
These socks have been perfect for snowboarding and skiing. They fit great inside my boots and don't have any seams or rough spots making them feel comfortable through an entire day on the slopes. They are a little costly for socks but I think it's worth it based on the durability and comfort. Also, it does an excellent job wicking away moisture.. my feet do not feel clammy or sweaty after a full day of riding/skiing. Big Ups for sure!
Quite possibly the greatest socks I've ever worn. Super comfortable for standing around all day at work and long hikes. I wear them with my old marine boots. I wish I had had a pair when I was still in because I never get a blister with these. Not exactly regulation, but who cares. I would still wear them.I've worn them hiking in the desert and while snowshoeing and I've never had a problem with my feet. I plan on getting a few more pairs.
"Super comfortable, Not too thick, actually stays above the calf and doesn't slide down"
This sock is perfect for taller boots. It's padded in some areas so it stays comfortable over long wear, and it fits snuggly so it doesn't slide down and bunch in your boot. Overall it's a fantastically comfortable sock which is yet to let me down.
Great socks! They come up to right below my knees and stay there all day. The lightness of the sock gives me a great feel in my boot without the mushy feeling of an overly cushioned sock whilst still keeping my feet warm and dry. Only a fool wouldn't buy these socks.
