With half the wool yarn weight of Darn Tough’s standard cushion socks, these Light Hikers are designed for hikers looking for a little less cushion. Each pair is made from a blend of 17.2-micron merino wool for all-weather comfort, nylon for breathability and a quick drying time, and a splash of Lycra for that just-right stretch. The seamless construction lends a smooth, nearly invisible feel (no slipping, bunching, or blisters!), while light cushioning along the base of the foot provides support where you need it most.
Note: On this drop, you’ll get two pairs of Light Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion socks. At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the men’s style (#1913) in charcoal/lime or smoke/cranberry, and the women’s style (#1932) in moss/eggplant, or slate/seafoam. Available sizes vary by style, and range from men’s S to XXL, and women’s S to L.
Merino wool keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather. Along with offering extra UV protection, it prevents overheating and clamminess by absorbing and releasing vapor. Plus, it’s naturally antibacterial and odor-resistant, so you can stretch an extra day (or two) out of your pair when needed.
The Cabots have been in the sock business for three generations, starting in 1978 in the Green Mountains of Northfield, Vermont with Cabot Hosiery Mills. Born a few decades later, Darn Tough maintains the family’s ethos: great-fitting, long-lasting socks, made right here in the US. All socks are knit on small-needle, fine-gauge machines in the original mill for high-quality, high-density stitching without the bulk. And Darn Tough is so confident you’ll love them, every pair comes with the company’s Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee.
