Socks?

8 posts in this topic

Just curious what socks to use on cold days. Do you use a thin wicking sock under a wool, or just one of the smartwool socks. Gonna make a sock purchase this afternoon. Thanks.

I have 1,200 gram boots by the way.

I purchased the Tec-Spun brand and I really like them. They have a liner sock that wicks away moisture and then the wool/poly type sock over it. My feet do not get sweaty in warmer weather or walking but do stay very warn in the colder temps.

These are hands down the best sock system I have ever used. Even better than my Smartwool.

They are a bit pricey but look to be a high quality sock that will last me a long time.

If you have good boots with good moisture management, then wearing one good pair of wool socks should do it. Then there's how to wash your wool socks on gentle. Always turn them inside out and pick out the pyling off, on gentle dry.

I think FTW is one of the internet acronyms for "For The Win".

I like smartwool socks myself.

Smart Wool are nice for everyday socks, but Under Armour and Filson socks pwn Smart Wool in demanding conditions.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
