SmartWool PhD Snowboard Light Reviews:


Great for Cycling Too

These socks come up on the leg so much higher than socks designed for cycling - which I personally like. Granted they state for "snowboarding" - but wool is wool. I would recommend these for any outside activity in cool to cold weather.

The best socks I've ever worn for snowboarding and skiing. Money well spent.
