I have used all these SmartWool items pretty much nonstop for the last 5 months while I have been working and travelling. They have tagged along for hiking in Scotland, sailing in Greece, paddling in Ontario, hiking and sea kayaking in Newfoundland, and regardless of the weather or activity have always kept me comfortable.
