Well I have recently purchased a precision scale that will weigh up to .1 oz! Since I purchased it I have been somewhat obsesed with what things weigh... My wife and I went on a "budget" buying spree today to outfit all of us with some hiking gear. I thought we found some good deals amids all the junk... I am mostly interested in putting up what stuff weighs but I will toss out costs as well.
Marino wool socks $4.97 @ Walmart
The Size large is 2.5 oz (2.1 oz for the medium)
Microfiber liner socks sz Med (97% poly) $3.00 each 1.1oz
INgenius Socks by Wigwam $13.00 (no liner needed per manufacturer)3.5oz Recommend for use with goretex boots (note they do not have gortex n them, they have merino wool/nylon/olefin outer with a built in olefin inner "liner") Also the "liner" is not a seperate piece of material but is an effect of the weave of the material which causes the olefin to be agianst the skin. It has recieved good reviews and i am interested to see how it works!
