Darn Tough often make it difficult to compare models, or at the least their attempt to do so is often vague, descriptions can be inconsistent with what you receive. These are similar to the camo OTC socks they offered in 2020-2021 and are similar in fit and feel. They do not have shin padding (something I was glad to find) but have enough padding around the foot for backpacking shoes, but not overly thick like hunter's socks. They hold tight enough and do not sag, but are generous enough to fit comfortably over larger calves.
One pair of socks appeared to be irregulars. Stripes not matching and pulls in the fabric. Last time we ordered directly from Vermont but we were told of the savings through you folks. You get what you pay for!
I go back to Darn Tough socks time and again. Great quality. My favorite socks for snow activities, hiking, and boots in general. These socks do not fall down.
