DeFeet Recon 6in Sock

So stealth.

Whether you're doing some early-season reconnaissance or lying low around fifth wheel, the DeFeet Recon socks' digital camo will help you fly under the radar until the time is right. They're made from a blend of synthetics featuring CoolMax EcoMade, which keeps your feet cool, dry, and funk-free to stave off swamp foot, the GI's only natural predator.

Love the design but not great in warm weather

Look great but not quite what I thought

I'll say this, these socks look awesome. But when it comes to absorbing and wicking away sweat and moisture, I was not that impressed. I wear these mountain biking and they can get pretty soggy after a long ride. I thought the cool max technology in them would work better, but in reality it was pretty much just like wearing a regular cotton sock. If you're looking for a super functional sock, I'd go with an Icebreaker or Smart Wool.

I love DeFeet socks, they are quality through and through. I have owned socks from pretty much every brand we sell and the Defeet socks have never let me down. They have outlasted so many other brands and I love some of the designs and patterns they use.
The 6 inch cuff is a great height and it is not overly compressing or too loose.
I wear a size 9 and the Medium fits great.
