In the Buffalo New York area I know of about five good surplus stores and I shop them all. Being a hunter and outdoorsman I like government cammo etc. The old wool socks can't be beat.
Standing around or in a goose blind are great, move around and you are in trouble when you take them off!!! The first thing we did at cool school was change socks when we stopped moving around. :dazed:Originally posted by Chief
The air valves are for releaving pressure at altitude during flight and to create an insulating air pocket to help keep your feet warm. I don't like wearing them unless it is extremely cold due to the fact that they make my feet sweat like crazy and after few hours of wearing them can make your feet a leathal weapon capable of clearing large rooms from the foot odor. :furious: :lmao: :spinsmile
