    Likes: warm with good wicking

    Dislikes: too much nylon in the blend making the sock inferior to other higher percentage merino wool socks.

    Likes: These are a great pair of socks. Wash up very nicely, super warm, good cushion. This is my favorite style of Darn Tough socks for winter.

    Dislikes: Nothing except the price! But they are worth it. Very long lasting.

    Likes: Thick and soft, these socks should do just fine keeping my feet warm.

    Dislikes: I found them a little tight in the calf area, but maybe they will stretch out with more use.

    Likes: So far, I have liked everything about these socks. They are warm and very comfortable. I have not had the opportunity to use them as of yet for camping and hiking in the winter, but plan on doing so in two weeks. Am looking forward to seeing how warm they are going to be.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

    Likes: As I mentioned in an earlier review, these are simply THE best socks for cold weather conditions. Nice Merino wool that washes and dries in regular cycles. Great length. Everything is top-rate in my opinion. NOTE: the blue socks will come in a sleeve marked for women, not unisex as the gray pair will.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

  • Denise S. New Castle CO
    12/17/2011

    Likes: These are the best socks I've ever worn for hiking/walking in cold-weather conditions. I love the fact, too, that they are made in Vermont. I also like that the sizes are put inside the sock so that I don't get mine confused with my husband's.

    Dislikes: The navy blue sock in size L came to me marked as a women's sock. This may be a concern if these are a gift for men, but I was assured that they were the exact sock as the grey pair.
