Darn Tough is what they are...Tight woven wool socks with a lifetime warranty. I have had other wool socks but none have held up like these. The two pairs I have are 11 years old and still perform perfectly.They are durable, warm, form fitting.


  • Lifetime warranty
  • Comfortable
  • Supported with extra weave where it needs to be
  • Form fitting


  • Price—they're not cheap
  • Slight pilling



These socks are tightly woven and seem thin. Most people were used to old really thick wool socks. Darn Tough puts the extra weave in the bottom of the foot where all the impact is.

These are some of the most comfortable wool socks I have had. I have had this pair going on 11 years.

As you can see some piling due to the dryer.



Been backpacking since 13 years old. Long distance hiker with ALDHA (Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association) and a trail club member and maintainer.

Love DT, and I can verify the replacement warranty is 100%, right down to shipping and handling.
