Striking a balance between lightweight design and rugged Merino wool durability, the Darn Tough Men’s Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushion sock has a 3/4 length cut and seamless construction that is ideal for hikers and backpackers.
Striking a balance between lightweight design and reliable durability, the Darn Tough Men’s Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushioned Sock has a three quarter length and seamless construction that makes it ideal for hikers or backpackers. Let’s take a closer look at its unique construction.
The socks are a unique blend of materials. You have got 48 percent Merino wool, 45 per-cent nylon and seven percent Lycra. That combination gives you nice durability, nice stretch and basically just enough cushioning for hiking or backpacking. So it is more breathable and less cushioned than some heavier socks which gives this some real year round or all season versatility.
Darn Tough has incorporated seamless construction down low on the sock, places where you would be vulnerable otherwise to the build up of hot spots and blisters, so really nice feature set there. As far as the leg is concerned, you can see the ribbing here, so a little bit more supportiveness on the leg, also helps to keep that sock in place.
The socks are constructed by Darn Tough based in Vermont and they are backed by Darn Tough’s almost unbelievable lifetime guarantee. If you are not happy with the socks, if the socks break down on you, Darn Tough will take them back and replace them. So pretty unbelievable claim there on Darn Tough, but we have seen them stand behind it.
In addition to all that functionality, the Darn Tough Men’s Heady Stripe Micro Crew Light Cushion Sock also just looks great. So you have got a bit of style going on here, got all that functionality that certainly makes it work in the back country and then the backing of that lifetime guarantee.
