Rated 3 out of 5 by from I expect better fro Orvis I can't verify its functionality on preventing bug bites. However, a couple of things that could improve my impression on these socks. Firstly, the color shown on the listing s qute dfferent from what I received. The shown socks have a greyish hue, but the one I received are light brown. Secondly, for any outdoor hiking socks (that's what I use it when wearing my boots), the fabric is just too thin. Thirdly, after one wearing, there are loose fuzz/lint/pilings from the fabric. For a pricey pair of socks, the quality is just not there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My feet love them. Bugs don’t. I bought them for bug feature but they also fit well and are comfortable. They do not smell of bug repellent to me. I tried just one pair but will get more.
