Just returned from a camping/hunting trip to Idaho. Bought a pair of these socks for my 6 year old grandson to wear on the trip. He is very particular about his socks, so i wondered if these would pass his test for quality and comfort. Out all day in the wind and snow, thru some shallow creeks....Sat around the campfire at night. Kept his feet toasty. He also remarked several times how much he liked the socks. Compared to the other thermal youth socks available on the market, thse socks are about half the price but work just as well or better than the more expensive kinds we have tried in the past. The boy gave these socks a big thumbs up.
