I know many folks are back from hunts so I thought I'd get this going right now, but from the other gear thread about what folks had planned on or had purchased, what ended up working and what ended up not working?
My thumbs up was a surprising one. The merino wool socks that I ordered were on backorder and I did not receive them. While in Costco, they had merino wool socks (not 100%, but 70% with nylon/spanex blend) at $12 for four pair. I picked up a pack and used them on my sheep and recent family hunt. THEY ROCK! At $3 a pair you can hardly go wrong and the fit was perfect for my smaller feet (they came in medium and large packs). I went back yesterday and bought two more bundles before they were gone!
My thumbs down so far was my first lite gear. I wont get into it as I need to contact them but I'm just not 100% impressed as I thought I'd be...mostly a durability thing...I'll keep you updated.
