Hunter's Specialties Tek 4 Mid-Weight Crew Length Socks have a cushioned foot with comfort top.
Scent-A-Way Tek 4 utilizes state-of-the-art silver technology to permanently control odor caused by bacteria. Scent-A-Way Tek 4 uses 33% more silver than other available silver-based garments, providing unmatched odor control. Nylon threads that are permanently encapsulated in pure silver are woven into the garment, as opposed to the silver being sprayed on, so the odor eliminating properties last for the life of the garment. Scent-A-Way Tek 4 garments offer easy care. They are durable and fade resistant and can be washed with other clothing. Unlike carbon-based clothing, which has limits on how much odor it can absorb and requires special treatment to be recharged, Scent-A-Way Tek 4 will continue to control odors on the last day of the hunt as well as it did on the first. The garments are also designed and engineered to provide permanent moisture management. They incorporate "catch, move and release" technology, which traps moisture and moves it away from the body where it can be treated by the silver and evaporated away. This keeps the hunter dry and comfortable under a wide range of weather conditions. This treatment is permanent, lasting the life of the garment. Scent-A-Way Tek 4 has unique thermal properties, keeping users warm when it is cold and cool when the temperature rises. Silver is one of the most thermally conductive elements on the planet, helping to optimize body temperature control. The clothing is breathable, extremely comfortable and is comparable to wearing silk.
Strong, persistent chemical manufacturing odor.

Seem very well constructed and comfortable. Excellent material. However, three of four pairs I ordered had a strange, strong chemical odor, apparently from the manufacturing process. More of an "industrial cover scent" (yuk!) than a scent-free sock as advertised, which is not exactly what I was looking for as a scent-sensitive bowhunter. After six washings and a couple of weeks outside, the smell is less, but still there. Don't know what to do with these things now...
