Summary

These are the perfect socks for hiking!

Pros

  • Fit
  • Support
  • Warmth without weight
  • Machine wash

Cons

  • Should be air dried
  • Pet fur clings tightly!

I love the snug feeling, without being over-tight. They have a supportive feel over the arch. Never stretch out. Even when wet, they remain warm without making the feet sweat.

I own several styles of Dahlgren alpaca socks, would recommend them all, except the short anklet style. The short anklet style runs small, tends to slide off the foot.

I have a pair of these socks. Excellent construction and they resist compression.
