Backpacking Background: I have been backpacking for over 20 years. The majority of my trips have been 3-6 day trips with â€œthe big oneâ€ still looming in my future. I backpack mostly in Florida in extremely hot conditions such as the Florida trail in July, or the North Carolina Mountains. I also backpack with my young children and my Mother
EDIT Mother is not usually capitalized
on occasion. I pack light but am not obsessed with it as I enjoy some of the â€œcreature comfortsâ€.
Year of Manufacture: 2002
EDIT please include metric
These socks are short style for warm weather. They are high performance moisture-wicking socks. They contain cotton fibers in the ribbed top, which absorb sweat while the coolmax Polyester wicks it away. Medium density padding under the ball and heal cushions and protects in blister areas. Low density padding with spandex around the arch and instep prevents bunching, allowing shoes to snug closer and support arch. Fabric content is 52% CoolMax polyester, 26% acrylic, 14% stretch nylon, 5% spandex, and 3% cotton.
EDIT CoolMax is a registered trademark and should always be capitalized - heal should be heel - did you mean to say "shoes to snug closer" or did you mean socks to snug closer
I have used these socks for the past 8 months hiking in the North Carolina Mountains, on the Florida Trail through Ocala Natâ€™l forest, and on several very swampy hikes in Central Florida Preserves. I have always had VERY sensitive feet and blister despite all precautions. The Thorlo Lite

EDIT include temps in both F and C scales
in the Florida Scrub. Under both conditions they performed well, keeping my feet dry, cool in the summer, warm in the winter. They work equally well with my mid-weight hiking boots as they do with my hiking sandals. On a recent hike that turned into a â€œswamp trompâ€ they preformed
so well that after hiking through knee deep water and hiking 4 more miles I did not get any blisters. Another thing I really like is the color, a medium earthy brown. No matter how dirty they get the
look clean. I have washed and dried these socks more than 30 times and they have retained their shape and look new.
In summary the Thorlo CoolMax Lite Hiker Mini Crew
EDIT Light Hiker Mini Crew
for women is an excellent sock for hiking. They have proven to be rugged and durable. Their ability to keep your
