What are the Gatewoods?

Tough, versatile and incredibly comfortable. The Gatewoods are built to take a beating from just about anything you can throw at them - from multi-day trekking, to long alpine days, to summer evenings round the campfire. We've had the Gatewoods in our range for a couple of years now and they fast became one of our favourites.

Despite the slightly cheesy name these socks are amazing!  What makes the Darn Tough socks so different and so durable is the way they are constructed.  Every sock is made with an incredibly high loop stitch count which produces more cushioned loops per square inch than any other sock.  Not only does this provide supreme cushioning, but because the loops are so densely packed they cannot flatten and shear under use.  This is how Darn Tough has managed to offer a lifetime guarantee on every sock which states:

“If our socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, return them for another pair, or your money back. No strings. No conditions. For life.”

What are they made of?

These sublime socks are made from a mixture of 67% Merino wool, 30% Nylon and 3% Lycra.  The fine gauge knitting makes this sock a true work horse that is supremely comfortable, breathable and fast drying.  Merino wool has a natural ability to repel bacteria, so you can wear these socks for days before you need to wash them.  This all-weather sock stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

How cushioned are they?

The Gatewoods have high density cushioning throughout the entire sock for full on comfort and performance. 

What are the features?

The sock has a smooth performance fit to reduce slipping, bunching and blistering and they are a calf height with a supportive and comfortable cuff that isn’t too tight. They are perfect for all walking and mountaineering boots. Comfort is further enhanced by the True Seamless construction which does away with bulky stitched seams and increases comfort.

    Wow....I was hesitant about ordering two pairs of socks for the Mrs and a pair for me and my elderly father (who suffers from poor circulation/cold feet) for Christmas presents but then thought if I dont like them I would return them. NO WAY ARE THESE BEING RETURNED!!! This review is for the above socks and the Mrs says they are excellent. She is a nurse and works at a hospital and is always on her feet. We also like going for long walks in the country (and at this time of year, 28th December 2017), it is cold. She said they are the most cozy socks ever. In my mind they are worth the extra expense over standard heat retaining socks, thermal socks, etc, etc. Buy them and you'll see what the Mrs is talking about. As for is clear and simple to use; great updates for when item is being processed and out for delivery. Was the best price on www as well which is a bonus. I review the other socks I purchased separately. 5 star socks 5 star trekitt 5 star Xmas present :)))

    Socktastic!!! Simply the best and most fabulously warm, comfortable and funky outdoorsy socks that I have ever worn . I am most definitely a sock junkie so I have previously tried and tested plenty of other good merino brands, including Icebreaker, Smartwool and Bridgedale : Smartwool being my favourite .....until now! The choices of bright , happy stripes and beautiful colours just add to the pleasure I have had wearing these wonderful socks. I am a sock addict so this is me writing whilst on a sock high but really, I think anyone would be more than pleased to own a pair of these Darn Tough beauties. They are fab and toasty inside walking boots , I haven’t had terrible sweaty problems either and another major tick goes to the fact that they also do NOT wriggle about inside wellies ! Would give more stars if that was an option. I will stop gushing furiously now!! Well done Darn Tough!!

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
