    Cushy and Tall

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

    These are great socks for ice climbing negative degree days. They are tall , super warm and wick very effectively. After one season the durability seems excellent as well.

    Fantastic!

    What can I say about this sock that hasn't been said before? Fit is great! Super comfortable and durable. bought these for my red wings in search of better comfort. Dont think twice to order these.

    Great Sock!

    These socks are amazing! I have worn them on some pretty cold moutnaineering summits and over night trips. They are very thick (close to being too thick and a mandatory size up in boots) and very warm. Just like all other Darn Tough socks, these are great breathability and odor resistant.



    I would definitely recommend these socks. Feel free to reach directly out to me with any questions about these or any mountaineering questions.

    Great Sock!

    Great winter sock

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love these socks. Very thick, warm, and comfortable. I have been using these socks in Scarpa Charmoz Pro GTX boots. Great combination. My feet (and the socks) are noticeably drier at the end of a long day, and the socks seem almost as fresh as when I put them on.

    The only one for me- true love!

    • Fit: True to size

    I there anything that hasn't been said about darn tough socks? Super comfy, fit great, warm, and stay up. Have hiked and worked in these, and they work great for both down to -20* f so far. I have half a dozen pair, and will be watching for another sale- other socks in my drawer seem more suitable for polishing in the garage after wearing these. Warm when they need to be, then my feet stay dry as I sweat everywhere else when I'm forced to work inside awhile.

    Great sock!

    These are just initial impressions, but these socks are awesome. Warm and comfortable to wear, coming up just below the knee. I'll have to report back when I've used them in different situations.

    Where's the 6 star rating?!?

    I would normally never pay over $20 for a single pair of socks, but then I bought these. Initially bought as a gift for my dad and uncle before a hunting trip, but after receiving them I realized I NEEDED a pair as well. Thick, soft cushion and did I mention WARM?! Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of these, you wont regret it!!!

    Feel great, but color was off .

    • Size Bought: Large

    I ordered the orange ones, but they looked more pinkish-red to me. I also ordered the wrong size. I wear a men's size 9-9.5 but ordered L by mistake. They not only went up to my knee but could be folded back down another 2" lol. I'm guessing the M would have fit just right.

    No hassle return.

    Sturdy, warm, no blisters

    I have worn these socks on numerous 6000ers in the Appalachian chain through a variety of conditions, including on one trip where I encountered several miles of melting, knee-deep snow and slush. It was on this trip that I realized my boots needed re-waterproofing, and I also realized that these socks are seriously warm. Despite freezing temperatures and full saturation they kept my feet moderately warm (not gonna lie - they weren't sitting by the fire toasty, but they were relatively warm for the conditions and the appalling lack of protective boot). They also dried easily overnight and were worn again the next day - no small feat considering I could wring the snow melt right back out of them.

    The biggest test came when I took two pairs of darn toughs (and a third pair of another brand) up on a glacier in the cascades for a week. They kept me warm, comfortable, and blister free despite not the greatest of boots nor weather conditions. I did double layer these socks on two particularly cold and wet days - including on the day I summited Mt. Baker.

    Overall - I am very pleased with these socks and despite tons of abuse over the past several months they still somehow look brand new.

    I have owned these socks for a while and they always work for me. There's not that much to say about a sock except that I like them.

    Excellent winter cycling socks

    I like to wear knee high socks with my 3/4 tights in the winter and with full bib tights on 30 degree days. I first tried DeFeet Woolie Boolie knee highs, which are great. But then I came across these. These are warmer and super comfy. I now have two pairs of these knee high socks. I love Darn Tough socks, and my wife and I have several pairs between us. Plus, they stand by their warranty. I just recently sent off a couple pairs of socks that have 7 or 8 years on them. I have received a few replacement pairs over the years, and they stand by their stuff. Better than Smartwool or Thor Lo's for sure. And, these are much better than Smartwool's mountaineering socks (I've had a coupe pairs of those).

    These get my highest recommendations.

    I have continued wearing these socks for winter cycling, and hands down, these continue to be the best. I am sold on smart wool. I will even try some of the shorter cuff length extra cushion for days I don't need the knee high length. But, these are solid, and you absolutely cannot go wrong.

    best ever

    there are no better socks on the market. warmed up a pair of frozen boots filled with spindrift in -20F in a couple minutes.
