Keep it simple. This Ultra-Light doesn't carry around a lot of baggage. Think of this sock as that dude who chows down a PB&J on the chair lift when it's nuking out. No time for lunch. This sock's not trying to be a bad ass, but it is. Over-the-Calf height is ideal for skiing and riding in deep conditions while Ultra-Light Merino Wool provides legendary warmth without the bulk. And since Merino Wool is naturally antimicrobial this sock repels bacteria and odor. If only everything in life was this simple. Still made in Vermont. Guaranteed for life. Merino Wool - Darn Tough custom count, shrink treated Merino wool enhances the comfort and durability that outdoor enthusiasts have come to expect from this fiber. True Seamless - Using the latest generation of Italian knitting machines, Darn Tough are able to knit ultra-light yet extremely dense socks with an undetectable toe seam, here in Vermont. The result is miles and miles (and miles) of blister-free bliss. Feel the difference of feeling nothing at all!
