Gear Review: Darn Tough Vermont Merino Wool Socks

Postby HikingGeek.com » Mon Jan 04, 2016 10:34 am

Since the end of August, I've been using these socks on all of my hikes. I’ve also worn them 3+ days per week, wearing them to work, the gym and around the house over the last 3 months.

One thing that really sets these socks apart from the competition is their warranty:

"If you were able to wear out a pair of Darn Tough socks, we’ll replace them. At any time. Just package the socks up, fill out the form, and send to the appropriate address—we will send you a brand new pair!"

Here is my detailed review:

Would like to second your positive review of these socks. Have been using a couple of the categories for the past few years, and they are much more durable and comfortable, keep their form better, then other socks that I have used in the past. Price doesn't bother me much because taking care of my feet is extremely important to me while running, hiking, cycling, and especially while backpacking.

I've used Darn Tough socks for the last few years, both for everyday use and hiking. Very comfortable and haven't even come close to wearing them out. Darn Tough ? Darn right !

I've used them pretty extensively too - to the point where I did get a pair replaced; to be fair they had done the Colorado Trail as a warm up to a lot more mileage....
