Wow, these might be the best touring socks I’ve ever used! Been through all kinds, from the smartwool phd socks, to Le Bent Cody Townsend. These things just feel good and perform well. No blistering, hot spots, bunching up, or anything. And hard to beat Darn Tough’s lifetime warranty. I’m sold!

I’m also particularly warm blooded so I was looking for something that could stay on during high output tours. I would say this almost meets that criteria. It works well for us warm blooded folks on days where temps are below high 20s or low 30s, when it still feels too hot and sweaty for m...
