darn tough? yup
ok, so the reason i didnt give em a 5 was b/c i havent used their warranty. so ive put these socks through the ringer and they performed very well. ive cycled over 200 miles of singletrack in these over past 2 wks. 60 miles in steady rain and although i was soaked to the bone my feet still were comfy. the temp was only a high of 50*. i use them the most out of several brands of merino wool socks. reasonable price and awesome warranty. ive paid double for others w/ far less warr.
want to buy more
wear them daily. once wore these socks for 2 weeks straight. no smell kept my feet dry/warm and comfortable. I always wear out the heel of my socks and in my boots. So far no signs of wear. I'm a Police Officer, so not only am I on my feet a lot, but in and out of a car all day, feet sweat from heater, then stand around outside for hours. Socks did a good job of regulating the temp/comfort level of my feet.
I'm impressed...so far. They're guaranteed to not get a hole...for life! We'll see. I'm about to hike 600 miles on the Israel National Trail. While training, I was glad I got the next size DOWN (I'm a 13/14 and technically an XL would do but got the L that goes up to 12. Glad I did because the L is already stretched out a bit, even becoming a little "loose" but not objectionably yet.) Feel very comfy, don't feel any seams.
Love these socks!!
My husband loves these socks! They keep his feet nice and warm! We live in the Pacific NorthWest and these are great out here! He hasn't yet used them for hiking but I am sure they will work very well on our long hikes! They have extra padding in the ankle area, which is were he tends to get blisters when we hike. The lifetime warranty no questions is great too!
Used these socks with a pair of Montrail Torre GTX boots, right out of the box. No hot spots or blisters during our 6 day trip in the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks. I attribute these well made and great fitting socks to one of the reasons I went blister free on the trip, besides the great boots as well.
well made, i need more hrs in them
They were a fine choice for using sight unseen to go hiking in to waterfalls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula in autumn. Days went from 38 to 74 degrees and my feet remained stable for comfort and temperature. Including a couple of accidental river dunks and removal (put back on with wet feet) to cross rivers.
I am very serious about hiking socks and have tried at least a dozen different kinds. So far, Darn Tough is the best. Really liked Campmor experience because I got to select the exact color and style. And, no, I am not related to the Darn Tough or Campmor companies.
Only socks I wear
These are the best socks I've ever worn. I've had four pairs for over 2 years now, and they are still running strong. Picked up this 5th pair of wool ones to keep me warm in the winter. Amazing products, couldn't recommend them more.
Terrific hiking socks
Good fit and feel, using in warm weather with a thin liner to good effect, anticipate it will fit and wear well in cold weather but not yet tested. Great quality and value.
Buying more soon
Very comfortable with or without liner socks. The lifetime guarantee seems too good to be true, but we'll see. The socks are a little pricey but I am buying more right away.
