*- socks in this review.
Price is the price per pair, note the Magellan and JB Expedition come in two pairs. Price does not factor in shipping which varied more than I expected.
Dry Time was measured in a variety of circumstances/humidity. I did not try to minimize dry time with a hair dryer or using multiple towels with them.
Appearance and Comfort are fairly subjective.
These socks, are the JB Expedition Adventure Travel Quick Dry Socks 2 Pairs $12.50 ($6.25/pair). These are the fastest drying of the socks I reviewed. They look nice. In terms of comfort, be aware that these are very thin and can alter the fit of shoes if you typically wear thicker socks. They have the best price of the three reviewed. Overall, my preference are the Tilley socks, but if you're used to wearing fairy thin socks these might be best for you. J.B. Expedition Adventure Travel Quick Dry Socks (2 Pairs)
Tilley Fast-Drying Travel Socks ($15.20/pair). These are my favorite. They are comfortable and look nice. They don't dry as fast as the JB Expedition socks and they are about twice as expensive. But they dry fast enough, look great, and are comfortable. Tilley Fast-Drying 'Travel' Socks - Mid-calf
The Magellan's Travel Socks (by FoxRiver) Comfort and Medical - 2 Pairs $16.50 ($8.25/pair). These are fairly comfortable, but took longer to dry than the others. Also they didn't look great. Kind of wrinkled like bacon near the top.Magellan's Non-Binding Travel Socks 2-Pack
Despite being called "expedition adventurer" socks they are suitable only for use with shoes. The material is no heavier or thicker than regular dress socks.
These would be good for use with boat shoes or walking shoes but that is about it. Useful life is not going to be very good regardless as their is no reinforcement of the heel or toe areas. The red toe socks are a much better value than these.
