Built for long-term durability, comfort and now made in the USA, the Point 6 Hiking Tech Medium Crew Merino Wool Sock offers ultimate, mid-weight sock performance in fit, cushioning and moisture absorption. The Hiking Tech Medium Crew Merino Wool Sock features mid-weight cushioning that surrounds the entire foot and lower leg, thus equaling big comfort and all day support for backpackers and hikers.
Point 6 uses a compact spinning process for all their merino wool socks which results in longer, smoother fibers which make the wool yarns 25% more durable than traditional ring spun yarns. Compact spun yarns are exceptionally soft and less bulky. High wear areas, like toes and heels, of Point 6 socks are reinforced with nylon fibers to increase durability. These fibers act as a protective shield that resists abrasion that would normally break down the wool. These two manufacturing techniques make Point 6 socks a reliable choice for outdoor sports on every level.
The Hiking Tech Medium Crew Merino Wool Sock features an ultra smooth closure seams without lumps to irritate the foot and a tapered style toe box hugs the toes and eliminates bulky material in the toe area. Arch support keeps the sock snug across the instep and the ankle brace design keeps the Hiking Tech Medium Crew Merino Wool Sock from sliding or sagging. Cross stretch stitching through the foot and leg area keep the socks up without being too tight and a deep heel pocket prevents movement within your boot.

Likes: Lasted extremely well and remained comfortable and remarkably stink -free for 230 miles trekking through the John Muir trail despite minimal washing. Dried quick, kept my feet cool on the hot trail and warm through cold nights. Great purchase.
