Swiftwick dropped a new line of socks today that are perfect for warm weather outings, the Pursuit Ultralights. They are constructed with a light weight, fine gauge Merino Wool, which of course provides maximum moisture and sweat management. In testing the Pursuit Ultralight does an excellent job at wicking moisture and drying quickly, keeping feet dry and blister free while providing that “barely there feel”. The thin, breathable design features a reinforced heel and toe for maximum durability. Bringing in all of the benefits of Merino Wool but in an extremely lightweight adaptation, the Pursuit Ultralight is awesome for running, and cycling/MTB, but also works well for hiking, golf and makes a great everyday lifestyle sock.

Also of Note, the Swiftwick Pursuit Hike line has been given an updated and refreshed design. The addition of Swiftwick’s signature Olefin fiber to the proven outdoor performance of Merino Wool makes the Pursuit Hike one of the driest hiking sock in its class. The lightweight Olefin wicks moisture and dries quickly, while the unique structure of Merino Wool absorbs moisture without feeling soggy or losing the ability to regulate temperature. The lightweight six inch cuff makes these hiking crew socks the perfect height to keep out trail debris, while the extra cushion underfoot provides that additional comfort that will let you go the extra mile. Available in either Light or Medium cushion. The light cushion is ideal for day hiking and light backpacking, while the medium cushion is designed to complement backpacking boots, moderate pack weights, cooler temps, and/or multi-day trips into the backcountry.
