Durable and soft merino wool is used to make these socks a perfect trail companion.

  • Elasticized arch brace ensures a secure fit and additional support
  • Flat knit toe seam reduces bulky feelings in hiking boots

light, but not super light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I would actually consider these mid weight socks, but my feet get warm easily. They are very nice smartwool socks, nice cushioning. Will get ultra light for summer


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

Exactly as advertised. Great for light hikes but with enough padding to handle more serious stuff. Have a few pairs and will keep buying them.

Not soft, not light

    It's hard to believe this is 60% merino wool. They're stiff and scratchy on the outside, and not soft on the inside. Nor are they thin or lightweight. More like a standard medium weight cushioned hiking sock. Very disappointed. Will stick with Darn Tough or Icebreaker.

    Great every day sock

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    My husband loves his wool socks and says they are super comfy and durable


      Love these socks! Use them every day! Usually end up buying a few new pairs in the fall and end up wearing them out by spring. Very warm and actually maybe dont breathe as much as I'd hope but they are still really nice. The fit is perfect, fairly wide in the forefoot and toes which is nice because I have wide feet.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a basic sock that does a good job. I wish the wool percentage was a little higher, and they seemed to stretch out a bit and be slightly big after a while, but I still reach for them often because of the comfort

      Great for hiking and normal use

        I'm using this not only for hiking for cold days as well, they fit nicely and are comfortable so your feet don't get super warm. Highly recommend this pair!

        Good “ all-around” sock

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought two pair and used them on an Aoudad Hunt in 30-40 degree weather. We walked and climbed a fair amount and they struggled with wicking moisture out of a Gore-Tex Lowa Zephyr boot. It’s hard to keep dry in a boot that doesn’t breath well, so I’d say they did the best any sock could do. I highly recommend “Smartwool Hikeliner Crew Sock” as a liner. I have found these liners to either control the moisture better, or at least wick the moisture away from your skin. The liners make all the difference in the world in comfort. I love these socks and of all the smartwool socks I have (heavy pairs and light pairs) these are the best for moderate to strenuous activities in cold weather or for sitting still or light activity in mild (40-50 deg) weather. Get the liners to keep dry in any situation though. They do make a lot of difference!

        What's There Not To Love

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Smartwool makes yet another great sock! Definitely solid padding where it needs, keeping you on the trail for longer. It's a game changer. Fit is great, length of the sock is perfect. I wear them mainly for hiking since the wool works so well for any extra moisture. Definitely a solid sock.

        Perfect Hiking Socks

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I bought these for my dad when he came to visit me in Utah. He hiked the canyons and throughout Moab and Canyonlands in these socks. Great for spring / summer weather. The socks are lightweight and stay in place while hiking.

        Rad Socks!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These bad boys have padding in all the right places. They wick moisture like no other. I can feel my feet trying to sweat, to no avail. Good for all seasons and activities!


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are great, lightweight socks for the trails or casual wear. I wear them all the time and love them.

          Smartwool Hike Light Crew Sock

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I have a number of different wool socks and the ones by Smartwool are the absolute best. The Hike Light Crew Socks are normal weight, and if they end up like the other Smartwool products I have, they will stand up to a lot of use for a long time!

          Great socks

            I wear them hunting, fishing, and hiking. They are very comfortable and wick moisture away well.

            My most used socks

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I recently purchased these socks in both gray and loden. I was originally looking for a warmer sock that would be good to wear with boots in the winter. These are my first wool hiking socks and I really enjoy them. They are not too heavy and are great for all occasions. I am typically warm and dont like really warm items. These wool socks are still light enough for me to wear while temps are still reasonable. I have yet to put them to the test in extreme cold conditions.

            Solid socks

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I have gradually been replacing all of my cotton socks with wool. These ones are super comfy and stay smelling good even after a day of hiking. Smartwool is the best!

            For All occasions

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            These socks are perfect for summer hiking, they are breathable yet provide enough support to avoid blisters.

            socks, socks, and more socks

              Husband wanted some toasty toes and that's what he's got! Invested in some nice socks since he wears holes into his in one season alone. Hoping these last a bit longer

              Not exactly "Light" but still great

              • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
              • Fit: True to size

              These socks are a bit thicker than I expected, but they still are fantastic for hiking. Can't beat the performance of wool!
