Most Durable
Darn Tough Rumble and Yeti

Darn Tough socks are regarded by the long distance hiking community as the only things worth putting on your feet. They also make great ski socks, and have one of the best warranty policies of any outdoor brand. Their socks are guaranteed for any kind of natural damage barring being eaten by pets. 

Darn Tough socks’ stout construction lives up to the name. They manufacture everything in-house at their Vermont Mill, where they’ve spent decades honing their merino knit. Through their Rumble and Yeti line, they capitalize on the cushioning properties of their merino wool blend to deliver a practical and comfortable mid-thickness ski sock.

Darn Tough socks have excellent form and fit, contoured around the heel and toe-box and with additional support included under-arch. It’s another attempt to balance the performance benefits of a low-profile sock with a little bit of padding. With their temperature controlling properties, they’re good-to-go from the bone-chillingly cold days on the ski slopes to the warmest of spring days. The Yeti and Rumble are also contoured around the calves to prevent bunching and slipping over the course of the ski day. 

Merino wool is also antibacterial, and its porousness allows moisture to be wicked away from your leg, keeping your gear cleaner, longer. The Rumble and Yeti are respectively a men and a women’s take on the sock, the Yeti being a little narrower around the foot.
