Good to know. I just bought some new winter hunting/hiking socks at the local Sportsman’s Warehouse. Always looking for first hand reviews of things so I will keep these in mind for next time.

Thanks OP. What is your shoe/boot size and what size sock did you order?
I hate tube socks going up to my knees.

Good to know. I had been a fan of the Costco trail wool socks but the last pack I picked up it was clear they changed manufactures. Quality was half what they had been.

I've got several pairs also and I like them, but don't love them. Many wears and many washes over the last 2 years. They'll be phased out with X-Socks and 6 Points. When Cabela's had their X-Socks on sale, I bought several pairs of each of the four styles and they are AMAZING. The Radiactors are the best cold weather socks I've ever worn, the Hunting socks are the best cool weather, and the Silver and Trekking are freaking fantastic for year round. All are merino wool of different thicknesses, have seams that support arches and toes and all the different angles of your feet, and believe it or not, have built in air conditioning that works like a charm.

Pricey. But worth every penny.

These guys are my every day socks when I'm not hiking or hauling heavy loads.

The Isolator model I love so much is no longer there, nor are the Hunting or the specific Radiactor I have. Dang. I'd have bought more.

I have these as well. Longest wearing socks I've had. And I am hard on footwear, socks and shoes/boots.
