Re: "Good Wool Socks"

I work outside all winter long in ND. We had some -45 temps before windchill. I wear a cabelas ultimax merino wool socks and 600gram redwing boots. I am a blaster so I walk and load holes all day long.



Merino wool socks and the underarmour face mask were worth every penny for me last winter.

Cabelas Outfitter Series Merino Wool/Polypropelyne Blend. Coems in 3 weights. I wear the lightweight al summer long with Oakley Tactical boots, and the heavyweight in the winter with my Danner (uninsulated) Acadia's. Hunt in both weights depending on the conditions.

It can top 110 degrees in the summer and drop below zero in the winter. Being stuck on a perimeter at night in the dead of winter on a SWAT call out will let you know where your gear lacks! for udner $10 a pair I love these socks.

Re: "Good Wool Socks"

BRIDGEDALE - Best in the industry. Talk to those in the industry and many will say that about these socks. After 20+ years of technical alpine climbing and many miles in the backcountry hunting and hiking, they are my go to sock. SmartWool and Thorlo, etc.? Good socks. Bridgedale? Great socks.

This summit sock is my choice for hunting/climbing.

Put a Bridgedale coolmax liner under the summit sock and you'll be good to go.

Didn't mean to plug altrec.com. Just the first site that came up, however, a good buddy of mine is a VP there. Help 'em out!

Jmden, these look like good socks, how bulky are they? My Smartwool ski socks are not like other smartwool boot socks. They are not at all bulky, very warm and cushioned. Have you tried the smartwool ski socks and if so how do they compare to the Bridgedale's?
