Cold toes! No PhD Ski Lite Elite!

I've used it several times

I?m not sure what the difference is between this sock and the PhD Ski Lite Elite but there was a huge difference in keeping my toes warm. These socks were not warm. Backcountry wouldn?t accept a return-for-store-credit as I bought them more than 30 days ago. Overall I super disappointed.

Thicker than I was expecting

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was looking for a ultra thin sock because my feet get super hot skiing. I've only tried these on, but they felt really thick. Definitely nice quality and I'm sure I'll use them, but not a thin sock I was expecting.

Great "warm" weather sock!

I've used it several times

I was looking for something for mid-season (i.e., mid-June through mid-August) mountaineering in the cascades, and this sock is it! Still has the thick cushion along the shin to help prevent shin-bang. The "body"(?) of the sock is the perfect thickness for me - thick enough to keep my feet warm, but thin enough that my feet don't overheat. Very comfortable. I will be purchasing more to keep me moving through the mountains all summer long.
