These socks are Great! Really warm and comfortable.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Use: Cold weather hiking, backpacking, mountaineering
Price Paid: $35

These socks are Great! Really warm and comfortable. They are pretty thick so if your boots/shoes are snug I wouldn't recommend them for you. I wear a size 11.5/12 boot and bought the Large, which I find a little tight on the calve. the next pair will be an X-large.

I have had no need as of yet to use a vapour liner with them but then again I have only worn them maybe 8 times, the coldest being -18 with some Asolo Sassalong Hiking boots and I stayed warm and dry. They are pricey but I feel there worth the price.
