Hiking Tech Extra Light Mini Crew

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Thicker-than-normal, extra lightweight merino wool socks that perform well in warm weather, particularly with low-cut trail or approach shoes. Inconsistencies with cuff height exist. I previously reviewed the Point6 Hiking Tech Medium Mini Crew. Readers will notice many similarities in these two reviews, but I felt the need to make product reviews available for each specific product, especially with the differences in cuff height and cushioning.  This pair was purchased at the same time as the… Full review

Hiking Tech Medium Mini Crew

rated 4 of 5 stars A four-season, merino wool hiking sock that is just as comfortable as it is durable. I came across Point6 socks after my wife received a free pair from an Eddie Bauer store.

Conditions: I’ve owned these socks for a little more than one year now and wear them on any occasion possible—hiking,… Full review

The reason is that it fits too loose in the toe box and allows the ball of your foot to slip a little… Full review

Hiking Tech Medium Crew

rated 3 of 5 stars After a combined 700 miles of hiking, backpacking, and trail running, the Point6 Hiking Tech Medium Crew and Mini Crew socks remained well constructed and my feet blister-free. Neither version is quite a medium cushion sock, however. Backpackers wearing heavier, all-leather boots will want thicker socks. But for fast-packing and weekend trips outside of winter, these merino wool socks shine. John Muir Trail in a week? Wonderland weekend? Throw these socks on, load a pack with some GU, and go. Whatever… Full review
