Point6 Ambassador Heather "Anish" Anderson recently completed the Arizona Trail in a self-supported, Fastest-Known-Time of 19 days 17 hours and 9 minutes. This was two days faster than the previous self-supported record. Read about her journey through one of our newest National Scenic Trails.
Point6 customers Alex (@the_professional_amateur) and Laura (@L_Boogie253) grabbed their socks and took a trip to beautiful Olympic National Park. They shared some great pictures, and a little blurb about their trip.
"Having these Point6 socks that I know will hold up on the cold, sandy, muddy and wet Washington coast made this last trip we made that much easier on me. My feet stayed perfectly comfortable, even in brand new boots!"
Point6 customer Nate Smith (@nate_fsmith) shared an inspiring story with us about his journey to finish his first ultra marathon in September.
"I know it sounds lame to go from heart surgery to socks, but it's all part of the journey. With the willingness of Point6 to help me get there, it made me feel like they cared about each individual that buys their socks, not just about making money. It's about the journey and how each person gets there. Point6 does their part, by taking care of your feet in a muddy, cold ultra marathon."
I absolutely have to have my Point6 socks. Your feet are getting wet, then you are climbing and descending a mountain and you want to have the confidence that your feet wont blister. Point6 socks give me the comfort and protection I need no matter what the elements are like.
Last week we shared an e-mail from Quoc Nguyen, a.k.a. thru-hiker "Double Magic." We were surprised to see a post about us on his own blog, quackquackcolorado.com, detailing the trip to our office from his point of view, including meeting our very own "Mr. Socks Dude."
We are lucky enough to have our offices located just off the Continental Divide Trail. We often run into CDT hikers taking a break to see Steamboat. One of these hikers was Double Magic, a.k.a. Quoc Nguyen who was hiking the trail in different socks, but agreed to give ours a try. He sent us this e-mail a few weeks later...
"I have to admit, I'm pretty surprised at the results because I've tried Darn Tough's ultralight socks once before, and they didn't last that long."
When you think of bobsled, the characters of Cool Runnings may pop into your mind – battling freezing cold temperatures, learning corners in the bathtub and heroically carrying their crashed bobsled over the line. Although it’s not far off (it is blooming cold!), here’s what happens in the non-Hollywood version.
A letter from a thru-hiker that became a Point6 convert...
"Since switching to your socks I haven't had a single blister or even a hotspot. I will forever wear Point6, thanks for making my feet happy!"

Merino wasn’t a new concept for us, but I don’t think any of us had really given it much thought. As active outdoorsmen/women, the benefits of merino wool had been all but beaten into our head over the past few years. We got it, or so we thought…
