I previously owned Bridgedale socks which lasted me 8 years and still are going strong.......I always purchase the same ones (design) so I can loose a sock or two and still mix pairs and they all match. I just purchased this week 7 pairs of these socks and would like more. Come on guys stock some more of these socks!. They wear exceptionally well, are very comfortable and hold up for years even under daily use. These socks are the best investment. Thanks for stocking this brand. Bridgedale is the only way to go in my view and Backcountry is very good reputable place that ships quickly and accurately what you order. Many thanks to all of you!
I started using Bridgedale socks about ten years ago and still own my first pair. They are well made (understatement), comfortable, hold their shape, warm and snug without being too tight. I like warm feet for backcountry skiing, so I wear a thick sock like this and mold my liners a bit loose.
The computerized weaving on these socks is amazing as it puts the warmth and padding where you need it, and keeps them trim where you don't.
There are probably other good socks out there, but Bridgedales are amazing, so I keep going back to them.
Great pair of socks......Now, this may not be an important issue when it comes to preping for a hard day in the field or on the trail, But I assure you at the end of the day your 'Dogs' will thank you. These socks are made of quality wool, and aren't too tight across the bridge. Comfort all day, wet or dry. The only thing I have against them, is the price. They're a bit too high.

I've had 5 pairs of Bridgedales for the last 7 yrs..... I've worn them practically non-stop.... and I can't seem to wear them out. The beat the pants off of their competition .... I'll never buy another pair of smart socks...... they not nearly as well designed for wear. I'm happy to pay the price if the product is worth it, and Bridgedale is simple the best socks EVER !
I was looking for a heavier weight sock for late fall/early winter hikes and this sock has proved to be the best choice I could have made. Fits tight in all the right places and stays up for hour - no yanking them up!
The right amount on insulation for those Southern Tier days when it's cold but not too cold. Highly recommended.
Very well made.
But unless you are going to sit outside and go fishing in near freezing temps, there is no need. These are for mountaineering.
Walking around in DC (where I live) this Jan/december in 20/30's with suede shoes made my feet sweat.
Great for trekking with haevy weghit and dayly use in winter. a lot of padding!, good ability to b dry in winter time. (down to -20C). my first place trekking sock for me for winter. use it in Sweder last winter
Bridgedale socks are great. Only have to wear 1 pair instead of an inner. Good up to -25 with winter boots. Comfortable too. Glad I bought 3 pair. Way to go BackCountry selling quality gear.
I use these socks with Sportiva Glacier boots and smart wool liner socks while hiking Colorado 14ers in April - they kept my feet warm - what more can you ask for?
Extra hot and humid day in Australia so was an interesting test of the summits wicking properties in which it did well. (In training for Everest in which it will be used). However, the stitching across the toes was rough and rubbed my little toe enough for it to blister. So interestingly no rubbing caused by sweat just the stitching instead. Mankind (And Womenkind)should invent socks without stitching above the toes...
