I love their "High Performance" crew socks and thought I'd give these ones a try. I found them thinner than what I like and a bit on the snug side so I can't just "rip" them off my feet real quick. They have to be "removed" more carefully than other socks or they can tear. But all feet are different so you're experience may differ. One note on odor control: YES! bamboo works to keep your feet from chasing everyone out of the room when you take your shoes off. I've tested and tested them and no or very very little foot odor after a sweaty hike or ride. Your wife and kids will appreciate them more than you!!
