Review 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: slacklinejoe, 2004-06-08

Ok, so they are socks. Big deal. Well, after a cold wet climbing/camping trip I recently learned the value of never using cotton on the trail. My normal cotton socks were soaked from persperation even with dry boots and as the temp dropped it became a miserable trip. On a recommendation from that trip I tried the Dahlgren socks out for my next few hikes. I was very impressed at the versatility. Even with low volume, it has thicker padding on the bottom which is a blister saver and thinner top which breaths very well. Since then I've used them on cold and wet trips as well as very hot trails and they've kept me warm in the cold and cool in the heat. They also dry out very quickly and provide good padding without being bulky and shifting while walking.

Ok, thats my rant - now go buy them. (I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 simply because they are not cheap)
