Most Seious Mtn-ering Sock out there

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I use these for longer backpacking trips, even in the summer when I am going to be up high enough that heat isn't going to be as much of a factor. Plus it is nice to have the extra cushion on longer pushes. I also use this for my mountaineering stuff, and in the in winter for snowshoeing. Great warmth and the cushion is a nice touch. I mean you just can't go wrong with Darn Tough, for everything except snowboard socks (sorry but IceBreaker takes the cake on those). Still these are the best mtn-ering socks I've found and probably the best I've found for cooler backpacking trips and snowshoeing. I also find that darn tough socks fit true to size and perfectly for me

My one and only

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

When we were introduced Darn Tough, I was involved with another sock. What I had was so popular, it was hard to imagine anything better. But with time I found myself curious. So I picked you up and said, just one climb. It scarcely took a mile for me to know you were a devastating contradiction: rugged but soft, and wickedly warm without bulk. Its been two years since that day Darn Tough Merino Wool Extra Cushion Mountaineering Sock, and my only regret is not having found you sooner :)

Comfortable, warm, and durable

  • Fit: True to size

After testing this sock guiding and climbing alpine routes in the Wasatch Range, I'm impressed by the durability and elasticity of the sock. No slipping down the calf as I've seen with other brands. Warm and comfortable, thanks to Darn Tough's seamless stitching! Check out a detailed gear review and comparison:

Best Wool Socks on the Market!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased 5 pairs of different wool socks that all had 5 star ratings on Amazon. They all were good socks but these are a notch above the competition in fit and feel and quality. They just fit perfectly and are the most comfortable sock I've ever worn. Outstanding construction and workmanship and Made in the USA! I bought 5 more pair from backcountry.com for Christmas presents.

Great sock

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I really put these to the test with a two week long trek up in Vermont carrying a 85 lb load, in the middle of July. No blisters, no hot spots. I wear a 10.5 and the large fit perfect for me. It is on the thick side and you must have room to spare in your boot because it will snug it up.

Tough. Darn Tough. Also a tad small.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

You can't help but be impressed by the packaging, which says: "Lifetime Warranty: If you can wear them out, mail them back to Darn Tough Vermont for a replacement." I have certainly never even seen any signs of wear on mine.

They are only moderately thick and moderately warm, but this property makes them good boot-socks or when combined with multiple sock layers. My only complaint is that they are too small. I have average-size feet and always buy XL socks, but even these were too tight to be entirely comfortable. The only better socks I've owned are the SmartWool Trekking Heavy Crews, but even these don't feel half as rugged as the Darn Toughs.

Lots of cushion

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've only had one pair of Darn Tough socks before and I lost them before I could remember how much I liked them. I got these for some winter mountaineering and I've loved them so far. My biggest complaint with longer socks is the itch that they always give me no matter what they're made out of and I can say that these ones itched very little.

This is the one!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super durable, great fitting, ultra warm, over the calf sock. Really stays in place and shows only minimal signs of wear after a season. Wool means less stink factor, too! What a great all around winter sock.

tough enough

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

sick socks made in VT. There isn't anything I've ever put on my feet like this. Don't know how they did it but these stay up all day and seem to not change wash after wash
