These socks are great for hiking in summer. The moisture management is excellent. This is a great light and fast sock.


  • Moisture management
  • Full length for better protection
  • Padded in the right spots


  • Not a heavy duty sock

The Lorpen socks are well made, and have held up well. Off trail, they could be a bit heavier, but they aren't supposed to be used so aggressively. They are perfect socks for summer on the AT, the moisture management of the socks is excellent!

I used the socks this summer for everything from walking on a paved road to full off-trail bushwacking on very steep mountainsides.


Glad to hear you got the shoes and socks, Unknown Caver. Got any pictures of them you could share?
