Hi @gi88 - It's great to hear you like your Darn Tough socks!

We wanted to share this conversation, Recommendations for Hiking Clothing, because a lot of different folks shared their preferences of Darn Tough socks in the thread. It may have the sort of reviews you are looking for!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Hi @gi88 .  I love Darn Tough socks in general, and just recently took the opportunity to try out their lifetime warranty.  It was quick, easy and painless.

I cannot, however, say that I have a favorite style.  It depends on what I am doing, and where and when.  I have heavy expedition weight for winter.  I have thinner ankle height for summer hiking.  I have no-show runner-type socks for summer biking.  In fact, I think I may have at least one pair of nearly every style sock they have.  I even got a variety of different Darn Tough socks as stocking-stuffers for my entire family,

I enjoy the Darn tough sock brand but as for a favorite I haven't tried enough of the style to say one way or another. I enjoy their feel especially after a long days hike with or without a 30# pack on. I have yet to get a blister with these socks but I have admit I also enjoy wearing a liner sock with them also. 

I use the DT lightweight cushion sock, quarter-calf length, for most hiking; and their boot-length midweight cushion socks for cold weather hiking.  I pair all of it with Injinji liner socks.  Works well for me.

Love these socks (for backpacking in trail runners). 

they do seem to shrink up just a tad. I bought a a size up, but it’s being cantankerous and not shrinking lol!

I normally wear a 9.5 shoe but I found with darn tough socks I have to go from medium to large to have a comfortable sock. The medium as it does fit my feet it is just a bit tight on the toes so I go up .5 shoe size.
