Fisherman’s friends

Fishing for compliments about your socks? Look closer at these natty striped socks and you’ll see there are little knitted fish swimming round your ankles. They’re part of Darn Tough’s ‘lifestyle’ range, which are everyday socks with the bombproof build quality of a performance hiking sock. In the Backcast’s case, that means it’s manufactured in a durable lightweight merino wool blend that features Darn Tough’s usual close-fitting design and lifetime guarantee. The sock’s also got just a little bit of cushioning to keep you comfortable through long days standing in your waders in a salmon river (or even just mooching around town)

  • When it comes to weather, Vermont sees it all. Unpredictable spring snowstorms, summer downpours, blustery falls, bitterly cold winters – you name it, this part of New England gets it. Heck, between late winter and early spring Vermont even has its own unique fifth season, when the dirt backroads turn into quagmires passable only in a truck. The locals call it ‘mud season’.

    But all that makes Vermont the perfect testing ground for outdoor gear. And luckily Darn Tough have been turning out their premium all weather performance socks in the heart of the state for three generations and nearly 40 years. These are socks for everything from skiing and snowboarding to hiking, biking and running. So, however you choose to explore the great outdoors, these are guaranteed to be the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned.
