Darn Tough Socks Gear Review

By Darr Colburn

Last fall I came across a product that was a game changer for me and the people I share hunting camps with.  I have tried other wool socks in the past and have not liked the fit and feel of them.  Until last fall I was wearing another well know brand of socks.  These socks were fine but my feet tend to sweat a lot and at the end of the day my feet and boots smelled awful!  I tried all kinds of foot sprays and powders but nothing worked very well.  I was forced to keep my boots and dirty socks outside of the tent or trailer I was staying in.  Last fall I purchased my first pair of Darn Tough Socks.  I wore them on a few hikes and day hunts and really liked the fit and feel of them.  I also immediately noticed that my feet, boots and socks no longer smelled awful at the end of the day.  I even took this a step farther and wore the same pair of socks for three days straight on a coues deer hunt to see if they would start to smell.  After three straight days in the same pair of socks I had Jay smell them to prove how good the socks are and that there was no odor (This is what good hunting partners are for!) .  I was amazed that there was no odor to the socks, my feet or my boots after three straight days in the same pair of socks!  I was totally sold and spent over a hundred bucks loading up on socks.  You get what you pay for with Darn Tough Socks!  These socks are made is the USA and carry a Life Time Replacement Guarantee.  If the socks wear out just send them back and they will send you a new pair.  The Darn Tough Socks feature a padded heel and toe and are made of a merino wool blend.  The socks don't bunch or slip like other brands I have worn.  These are the only socks in my bag now days!  Here is a description of the socks from the Darn Tough web site.
