Charting the wear and tear on four pairs of Smartwool socks.

Episode 10: Another Mystery Package

This afternoon another mystery package arrived, this one from Bridgedale. If you recall, Brad touted the glories of his Bridgedale socks in Episode 7: Go Hike.

I am completely floored at how comfortable these socks are. Allison, who is pickier than even I when it comes to socks, is downright converted. Really, they’re fantastic. They feel light and breathable, but still totally like you’re walking on a cloud. My shoes feel more comfortable when I’m wearing these socks. Time will tell how they wear and tear, but they’re going to be the clear favorite in my sock drawer.

The socks featured in this episode are, in the order they were tried on: Women’s X-Hale Trail Diva, Women’s Bamboo Crew, Endurance Trail Light (my favorite), and the Women’s X-Hale Multisport. These socks sell for $14-$17. Bridgedale guarantees most of their socks for three years, with the exception of the Bamboo ones, which are only guaranteed for one year. Washing and drying instructions are the same as Smartwools (inside out, machine wash, tumble dry low, no dry cleaning, no bleach, no fabric softener).

Thank you for the socks Bridgedale, we’re total converts.

  1. I’m going to start a blog called “Erin Needs a Fancy New Guitar” and I will go around videotaping myself playing fancy guitars and wait for people to send me some.

  2. I can think of worse ways to a) figure out what guitar you’d like; and b) get your songs and voice out to a bigger audience.

    Seems to me like a great idea, even if you don’t get a free geetar out of it.

  3. I hear you. When I tried mine on I said to Tia that I have never put a more comfortable sock on my foot! They are worth every penny…even if they were free.

  5. I enjoyed reading through your blog. I personally have enjoyed all the Smartwool gear I have owned, socks, base layers and beanies. Although the beanies did itch even though the merino wool isn’t suppose to, I guess I may have a slight wool allergy.
