“I’d always heard good things about the Darn Tough brand – Made in the USA and with a lifetime warranty that you might not even need since they supposedly last forever. However, I never really expect socks to last quite that long, and other than that fact it was difficult to see just what else a Darn Tough sock could offer besides durability, at least on paper. But I finally gave in to the hype this spring and still skeptical of a merino wool sock, (I’ve been using 100% synthetic socks, favoring drying time over all else) I found a pair of their Light Hiker socks on sale, which are an interesting blend of 46% merino wool, 46% nylon, and 8% Lycra. The perfect mix? I hoped.
To get to the point, the socks are awesome, the hype is deserved, and I’ll probably never hike in anything else. Where I might have a blister before, it’s now just a hot spot. Where I might previously have a hot spot, my feet now feel fine. The socks are very soft against the skin wet or dry, and by comparison my old 100% synthetic socks feel abrasive. The construction is very solid, with a very tight weave, but the socks aren’t too hot on warm sunny days, and still do a great job of keeping my feet warm in my sleeping bag at night or during rainy days when my trail runners end up getting soaked. (Though for winter use something warmer would be ideal) Drying time is good, but slightly behind a pure synthetic sock. However, on backpacking trips I run a 2 sock rotation – Washing one pair in the morning and hanging them on the outside of my pack to dry as I hike so I’ll have clean socks that night. The process repeats daily. I’ve always had dry socks at the end of the day, (Unless it’s raining) so I can’t complain and drying time is adequate. They’re also durable – Will they last forever? Probably not, but after a few hundred miles they still look mostly new after a run through the wash.
In any event, these are without a doubt my go-to socks for the trail and above all else, comfort is where these socks excel…And you can’t beat the lifetime warranty. Best of all, at least in my case, they’ve basically eliminated blisters and my foot care kit hasn’t been used since I bought these socks.” Read more...
