I've worn Smartwool PhD Ultra Lights the past two years. I won't go near any thick sock ever again - just distorts how your boot feels, if you can feel it at all.

Btw, I've worn these with Salomon F20s since I got these socks. My feet are never cold.

BlazewearUSA Heated Socks

I use heated socks from BlazewearUSA.com and I absolutely love them. Great price, good battery life, and the warmth saves you from needing to go warm up inside so you can stay on the slopes for hours! They have other great products too like heated jackets, vests, scarves, and even heated glove liners you can put in any gloves...

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

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

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.

Are they USB/microUSB compatible??

Do they act as a WIFI hotspot?

Solar Powered?

Do they smell as bad as my feet?
