Socks- black ovis
I just saw the black ovis socks on Camofire, what’s the word on these? Quality, fit, funk resistance, etc…
No experience with their socks but, the wife and I have several pieces of their Merino wool and it's been great.
They are ok at best. The lightweight socks are pretty thin and don't offer much cushion. Probably get a few month out of them before they develope holes. I found fits socks this year and really like them
I have the lightweight and mid weight socks. Durable, breath well, and comfortable.
I bought a few pairs and didn't care for them. Some of their stuff is great, some... Not So Much! I only buy Darn tuff now and wear them daily, even here in AZ when it's 115! Best socks I have ever worn!
Darn tough are hard to beat. Do they offer a thinner sock with padded heal and toe? All of mine are pretty uniform thickness.
No experience with their socks but the merino base layers have done held up well over the last 3 years.
Started wearing darn tough socks everyday about a year ago. I love the midweight micro crew. Most days though I wear their 1/4 height lightweight with cushion in the bottom. Enough cushion to be comfortable but a good bit thinner than the midweight.
I also wear darn tough everyday. I mix them with grip 6 as well.
My son and I have a few pairs of the lighter merino wool from Black Ovis. We like them. They are not too heavy and have held up pretty well. I use them a lot of the time rather than other heavier pairs for hiking, hunting, 3D shoots etc.
I also have Darn Tough Socks….but I got these in a heavier style for more mountainous terrain and strenuous activity.
Hey Butcher… tell me more about the grip6. They’re a good looking sock.
