    Great socks!

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    I purchased these socks for my husband. He really likes them! Snug fit without being constricting. They're long and stay put! Cushion-y and comfortable.

    Perfect socks!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    Very warm, love the 'over the calf' fit-- I am a size 12.5 shoe and I got the large size, and they fit me perfectly (I don't like to layer a liner sock anymore). Worth every penny!

    Not just for mountaineering

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

    I bought these for a friend of mine works on a farm 7 days a week. Bought these for a friend recently. He ruins most socks within a year, working on a farm, hunting and fishing so he was happy to hear that Darn Toughs have a lifetime guaranty! Although I'm not sure he will have to send them back any time soon! He wears an 11 boot and the Large fits great!

    Not just for mountaineering

    Awesome Socks

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    The quality, style and fit is exceptional. I have worn Darn Tough socks for 3 - 4 years now and they rock! I purchased these over other brands to take to Ecuador in a couple of weeks. They have proven to fit great in my mountain boots.

    The most comfy socks EVER!

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

    Having tried several other socks from the big names, Darn Tough are by far the most comfortable socks I've ever worn. They are now the only socks I'll own. From no-show running socks, to these super comfy foot warmers, my sock drawer looks like an ad for DT.

    Good sock for winter.

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

    Got it after being adviced to try it out.

    Pretty tough, warm, go just below my kneecap.

    I did not try the warranty but seems to be kind of awesome for people who use their sock up to the end.

    fueling america!

    I bought these as a birthday gift for my brother! He is now a Darn tough fan. has to were steel toed boats at work everyday. he needs tough socks that will last. he is constantly on his feet 12 plus hours a day, wet. there isn't harsher working conditions on this earth. Darn tough have meet the challenge of his everyday. He plans on buying more.

    This may sound odd for an outdoor site

    The are THE very BEST socks for cowboy boot I have ever owned!! They don't slide down which is a plus for boots as you get calf chafe sometimes when this happens. They are also extremely durable! Finally I have an over the calf sock I do not have to throw away after a few weeks. Over a month and my Darn Tough socks are hardly showing signs of wear. The are so worth the money!!!

    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 :)

    My one and only

    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...They rock!

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

    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.

    UPDATE:
    Two years later and many treks behind me in these socks and they are still kicking it.

    Tough. Darn Tough. Also a tad small.

    • 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.
