When it comes to outdoor activity, the choice of socks can significantly impact your adventure. Poor-quality or ill-fitting socks can lead to a sweaty, blistery and overall miserable experience.

Enter Merino wool – the cure for the common sock. These socks excel at moisture-wicking, ensuring your feet stay dry and comfortable throughout any adventure. Beyond that, they offer breathability, keeping your feet fresh even on challenging trails. Plus, they possess remarkable odor resistance, eliminating the dreaded "dirty sock smell."

Check out some of our favorite activities, made even better with the comfort of Merino wool socks.

Snow Sports

Skiers and snowboarders love Merino wool for its natural insulation properties, ensuring warmth in cold conditions—which is absolutely crucial for tackling chilly slopes or long days in the backcountry. The Merino wool coverage doesn't stop with base and mid layers - it continues to their feet. Merino socks' moisture-wicking capabilities, comfortable fit, and breathability collectively contribute to a more enjoyable and comfortable cold-weather experience. 


For backpackers, Merino wool socks are a weight-conscious dream. Lightweight, versatile, and quick-drying, a single pair can last for days of exploration without needing washing, minimizing the need to carry multiple pairs. The Ridge Minaret 3/4 crew socks are the perfect fit - hitting just above a hiking boot, to avoid slippage and chafing.

Whether hitting the road or the trail, Merino wool socks provide breathability and comfort, making each stride more enjoyable. Merino wool socks are an excellent choice for running in warmer months, as their natural odor-resistant properties ensure freshness during extended sessions, reducing the likelihood of unpleasant odors. Additionally, these socks excel in moisture-wicking, efficiently drawing sweat away from the feet to keep them dry and prevent discomfort during intense runs. The breathability of Merino wool further ensures proper ventilation, helping regulate temperature and prevent overheating.

Whether you're setting up camp or lounging by the fire, Merino wool socks bring an added level of comfort and warmth, elevating the entire camping experience. Notably, Merino's natural flame resistance ensures that even if it touches a burning surface, it won't melt or stick to the skin (a relief, especially if you've relaxed a bit after a couple of beers by the fire). And when it's time to hit the sleeping bag, there's nothing worse than cold feet making your whole body chilly. Just throw on your reliable socks for a swift, warming remedy.

Wherever your adventures lead, trust Merino wool to adapt to varying temperatures, allowing you to focus on the journey without losing your way.

Gym Workouts

The dreaded "gym sock" smell will be a thing of the past. Merino socks, with their breathable and odor-resistant qualities, ensure your feet stay fresh, even in the midst of - and after - an intense session.


Cyclists choose Merino wool socks for their lightweight, moisture-wicking properties that keep feet dry and comfortable during long rides. Additionally, the breathability of Merino wool ensures proper ventilation, contributing to an overall enjoyable cycling experience.
