For skiers (and snowboarders) who want a lightweight sock that offers solid compression, Icebreaker is the way to go.

Unless you wear compression socks regularly, these may prove to be a little too much after a long day.


Thickness: The Merino wool fabric of these socks is super lightweight.

Warming: Despite the lightness of the fabric, these socks still provide for a soft, warm, and comfortable experience for your feet.

Drying: The lightweight fabric also contributes to the quick-drying nature of these socks.

Comfort: Because these are compression socks, first and foremost, the purpose of wearing these is to provide your muscles support and to help reduce fatigue. That doesn’t mean that you won’t be comfortable wearing these, but it does mean that you’re going to have super comfy socks on all day.

Padding: According to the Gear Guy at Outside Online, these socks are best when you’re looking for extra compression support. So if you’re looking for strategic padding to prevent boot chafing, you’ll want to look at another sock.

Price: Like with any other type of compression clothing, this one’s going to be pricey. But if you want something lightweight that will get the job done, these socks are well worth the investment.
