Are they USB/microUSB compatible??

Do they act as a WIFI hotspot?

Solar Powered?

Do they smell as bad as my feet?

Triple8Sol I've had socks from Thorlo, Wigwam, Helly Hansen, Burton, and on and on. Got turned onto Smartwool a couple yrs ago and they're by far the best. They don't fall down or bunch up, super warm and comfortable, do a good job of wicking, and come in various thicknesses. I have a few pairs of light and medium.

lachyzee Hmm I am torn between Smartwool Lights or Ultralights.... concerned that the Ultralights might be too thin and thus less durable.

I have the same boots. Over the off season have amassed various Icebreaker socks and bought both the phD ultra lights and mediums...didnt know which to get...haha. I dont have the greatest circulation so I've always been afraid of my feet getting cold with thin socks....but it appears thicker /= warmer...good to know! Heres to hoping the UL + f20 combo is as warm as you say it is
