I love them. They are so nice and toasty and they keep my feet warm.
I had tried a few other Alpaca-blend socks that, while warm, also tended to bunch up, being too thick and of questionable durability for actual backpacking. These are different, seeming about as tough as my go-to Darn Tough merino socks, but having a silkier feel that I expect will help avoid blisters even better. After several day hikes with them, I’ve decided to pack 3 pairs for my PCT thru-hike attempt in a couple weeks (one pair for sleeping).
My feet sweat in hot weather and .most socks are not comfortable. These are great socks. I've already worn these twice for several miles. They are comfortable and my feet feel great. I highly recommend them
