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.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
