You'll move light and lively as a gazelle in the Dahlgren Men's Light Traditional Crew Hiking Sock. With streamlined cushioning underfoot only, ventilation panels, and snug arch support, this sock hugs your foot in efficient comfort. Made from merino wool and alpaca that absorb moisture and spoil the foot in softness and Therma-Dri that transfers and dispels that moisture, this lightweight won't soak up the earth and sweat that will weigh you down.
WHY ISN'T EVERYBODY WEARING DAHLGRENS? Insanely comfortable, perfect fit, wicks moisture away from the foot as advertised (e.g. no stinky feet), and wear like iron-- I have Dahlgrens purchased in 2006, and they are still going strong. The Light Hiking is my favorite because it really is the perfect all-around model: thick and cushy enough to wear on the trails (the alpaca fiber blended with the wool is warmer than merino alone so it cuts down on the bulk) , yet thin enough to wear with casual shoes or even sneakers in town, which makes these a GREAT sock for traveling. In a perfect world, the overhyped, underperforming and poor quality competitors in the hiking sock category should just roll over and go away, because these socks are the real deal.
