Darn Tough and Smartwool are the brands I wear. Both are great. Smartwool makes a thinner sock that I wear when it's hot. REI has a great selection.

I have some of the Browning ones that go on sale at cabelas occasionally and smartwool. You will not regret spending the extra coin on merino.

I have Farm to Feet. Same lifetime warranty as several others and very comfortable. They also don't slide down my legs like Smartwool did

These are on sale now from Costco. If they don't perform Costco will take anything back no questions asked in my experience.

I am going to expand a bit. I hike with Darn Toughs. I use two pairs of their slightly heavier ones. They add more cushion and I also use REI liners (real thin sox). My feet are never hot, cold or blistered. On the AT in NH when my original pairs started to feel played out, I walked into an outfitter and without question received two new pair. The old pairs lasted like 1,900 miles and we're still in decent shape without holes. The point is, their lifetime guarantee is for real and you don't have to wait until six are shredded!

I also have a lighter pair of Darn Toughs that I will use this fall for hunting. Perfect for sitting inside a Lacrosse knee boot.

I sing the praises of DT.... I have hiked over 2,500 miles wearing them. They are good, but consider liner socks. Liners are not for every hiker or every hunter, but they work for me.
