Has been a great sock for me. Thick is the key word here. I needed a thick sock for warmth and to keep my heel locked in and these do the trick. Also the are very warm and work well in my Scarpa Cumbres down well below zero keeping my toes nice and warm.



So for they have been durable but I have only used them for the last year, one winter. Don't put them in the dryer after washing they will get small!

Affordable Too
These socks seem to me to be the equal of the more expensive brands REI carries. The only thing I don't like is the big REI across the toes. If you take off your shoes, you're a commercial!
