    Socks

    The only kind of socks these days I can seem to find are the ones that do multiple foot sizes which I find bunch up behind my heel and cause blisters on my feed... What brands out there do you fullas recommend that are for specific foot sizes? or just in general.

    Mate I have been wearing "Skins" socks of late in camouflage of course keep the calves / achilles in sync. Normal socks Explorer do a good job ex KMart

    Icebreaker Mens Hike. I use these every day on the hill, I don't even change them on a 5+ day trip. I have a backup 'calf' pair that I keep in dry bag. Bombproof, warm, comfortable, quality.

    Falke. Not sure how easy they are to find here. Smart wool otherwise.

    How long are you guys getting out of a pair? Of the above posted? Also when you take them off at night do they leave fluff all over the floor (I don't see the problem but someone's complaining )
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
