Ever since trying out SmartWool‘s line of merino wool socks a few years ago, we decided they were as good for fishing as they were for hiking and biking. In 2011 they’ll introduce two new lines of socks that make a lot of sense for anglers.
There are two models in the Hunting line: the Light Over-the-Calf ($22.95), and the Extra Heavy Over-the-Calf ($24.95). Both models employ SmartWool’s WOW Technology™ (wool-on-wool) in a reinforced sole for comfort and durability. They also feature SmartWool’s Fit System with arch and ankle support, a flat knit toe seam, and strategic mesh zones for maximum ventilation.
PHD Outdoor Light Crew
There are three new models in the PHD Outdoor line. A Light Crew ($19.95), a Medium Crew ($21.95), and a Heavy Crew ($22.95). Each model has a 4-degree fit system for an all day performance fit, and WOW Technology™. The SmartWool inside allows for moisture, temperature, and odor control. They also have a duroyan reinforcement for added comfort & durability. Like the Hunting models, the each of the PHD Outdoor socks has strategic mesh zones for maximum ventilation.
You can buy SmartWool socks online at SmartWool.com or from your local retailer.
