Merino Wool Socks in the Montana National Forest

Our WoolPRO BA, Spencer, put his Parallax Merino Wool socks to the test. Let’s see how they held up!

Parallax Merino Wool Socks Review

“My WoolPro Merino Wool socks have been an awesome addition to my 4-season wardrobe. The day after I received them, I took them for a 10-mile trail run in the Gallatin National Forest of Montana. They performed great- no weird hot spots or blisters, even after some creek crossings and plenty of early season mud. The following weekend, I wore them on a backpacking trip. Mid-June is pretty early for high country travel in Montana. I was confident my new socks would keep me comfortable regardless of the conditions we faced, which ended up including significant snow above 9500′ and plenty of runoff water below. My socks have spent many long days in my sweaty work boots, where they have again performed admirably. If I had a pair for every day of the week, you can bet I’d be wearing them daily regardless of activity!”


From long hikes in on the AT to a short trek up Kearsarge this is a “go-to” sock for hikers seeking comfort and performance. Cushioning along the bottom of the foot provide the perfect amount of support while a smooth, performance fit assures there’s no slipping, no bunching, and no blisters. Fine gauge knitting makes this Merino Wool sock a workhorse that’s comfortable, breathable and fast drying. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter and naturally antimicrobial so it repels bacteria and odor, which comes in handy when you need to get an extra day (or two) out of your socks.

In addition to my outdoor adventures, I also spend most of my work week outside in all weather. I really put a beating on my socks, especially through the snowy winters of SW Montana.
