I use Smartwool socks....they are awesome...warm and keep your feet dry. I use them for everything, sledding, hunting, work etc.... The only time I was happy to get socks for x-mas! :smiley-faces7:

Wool. Itchy, but keeps you warm and dry. I got some 100% wool ones from Scheels. Pretty heavy, and a bit pricey, but worth it.

Get yourself a thin liner sock for like $2 then you are even drier, and no itch. I do the same.

Agreed. One thing to look out for when buying socks is the actual wool content. I went looking at Dicks, and most of their Wigwam "wool" socks had under 50% wool. I found a pair in the 80% range, and I'm very happy with them. They are thick, and very soft inside, unlike 100% wool. They are so thick that they feel padded. I've found that I like them so much that I wear them around the house at night. Even when my feet get real hot, they never feel wet and sweaty. So far I've stayed quite warm wearing them snowmobiling.

I either where Under Armour "Cold Gear" socks that have some wool in them, or some Smartwool socks, Both keep my feet plenty warm and dry.

Cabelas Ingenius series sock!

These socks combine an inner moisture wicking sock with an insulating sock into one sock. I use them all hunting season they rock! They come in three weights lite, medium, & heavy weight.

I have a pair of the Under Armour coolmax socks, think they are the ski/snowboard socks that are black/gray and red. They were about $16 at Dick's, go t my a wife a pr. in the woman's version also. I also have two pairs of the Klim socks as well, the Klim's were a couple of dollars more and seem to work the same as the Under Armour's. They wick away mositure and keep your feet dry and warm.

I wear Burton Outlast Tech snowboarding socks. They're designed for intense snowboarding, so obviously, they work amazing !

I've found Alpaca socks to be the most comfortable and warmest.
