Ultra-Light, fast and uncompromising. This sock refuses to let a little "shin bang" send you inside on a powder day because we’ve added just the right amount of targeted padding on the front shin area where skiers and riders often need a little more cushion. Nothing feels better than the warmth Merino Wool provides when the mercury drops. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. From "earning turns" in the backcountry to buffed out groomers, this Ultra-Light sock wants in on the action all day long. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life.
