Darn Tough Mountaineering Extra Cushion Sock Reviews:


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.

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.

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.

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.

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
