Kit Focus — Darn Tough Socks

When it comes to socks, I am pretty darn fussy. With good reason though—good socks, and the right socks, make as much difference to your comfort as the hiking shoes or boots that you choose. The Darn Tough Vermont socks have become my preferred choice for Hiking and Lifestyle wear.

The Darn Tough range is still made in Vermont, U.S.A. They hold an incredible lifetime guarantee against product defects, and indeed from my experience they are impressively durable.

The Hiking and Lifestyle range all use the magic Merino wool in their fabric blends, which provides the fantastic softness, temperature regulation, and comfort that makes these socks a go-to option. They keep your feet warm in the winter, and cool in the summer; as well as avoiding hot-spots and friction irritation caused by some polypropylene fabrics.

The fit of the hiking socks is particularly exceptional. The fabric blends Merino with Nylon and a little LYCRA® to create a light compression fit; this makes them supportive and extra comfortable—both welcome when you are smashing out long days in the mountains.

I have used these socks for numerous hiking trips and for general lifestyle wear for several months, and they are still the best I have found.

  1. Thanks for the tip about the die-socks from the U.K. Biking the Dolomites on an ecotour is on my bucket list and these kind of socks will come in handy if I ever make the trip . They don't cost a mint and last a long time . Thanks again Tim : )
