Honestly, when the Men’s Health 2021 Outdoor Awards tagged the Number 2 sock as their Best Hiking Sock, DarnTough were moved. Personally, they think it’s the No. 1 sock when nature calls. Look closely at this hike sock and you’ll see what they mean. Either way, a blown-out seam should be the least of your worries. That’s why the Number 2 is also No. 1 when it comes to long-lasting toughness and active comfort as well.
