Very warm and comfortable

I was really looking for something to get some extra warmth on those really cold days in the stand. I've tried a number of name brand socks that just did not give me what I was looking for. These really did. Very pleased and bought a second pair.

About Kenetrek

Sheep hunting tests you down to the core. It's brutal, exhausting & downright dangerous. We first started designing boots after an eight-day hunt in the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories in 2002. The merciless country tested us in unimaginable ways, & I was winning the fight, until my feet made me want to lay down & die. What were once blisters became almost freakish gashes that took me down for the count. That's when I knew we had to design a better boot that could keep up with a high-country mountain sheep hunter. Since then, we've been designing, building & beating up boots in every brutal terrain conceivable, to make sure hunters, backpackers & hikers can go anywhere on the planet without ever experiencing boot failure. Today, thousands of outdoor enthusiasts wear Kenetrek boots to live their passions with unbelievable support, total comfort & confidence.

About SmartWool

The Smartwool story started on a rugged Colorado ski slope with the belief that toes didn’t have to be cold. One simple pair of Merino socks challenged the conventional wisdom and forever changed the way outdoor enthusiasts looked at their feet. It’s not just about the Merino, though. It’s what we do with it that makes Smartwool different. For over 20 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of Merino to create smarter, more capable products from head to toe.
