First things first: Disclaimer.

I used to work at an outdoor retailer and got ridiculous savings on quality gear. Basically, something like up to 75% off. This may seem like a Merrell, Patagonia, and North Face fan-rant but it's not. Those were great deals or given to us for free from the supplier to demo. At the end of the day though, I was looking for the same thing I do now, as a broke, cycling bum hitting up good will. I still want decent construction, durability, and key materials.

So here we go.

Base I'm most unfamiliar with my base layers because I've been in warm weather since February. Sorry this one is kind of scrambled.

Feet: Fits or Smartwool hiking sock (Smartwool PhD series fit the best for me and are super comfy). In the winter I use some Remington socks I got on sale at Cabela's. Work great.

Leggings: icebreaker.

Long-sleeve: Patagonia Capilene Thermal or Smartwool long-sleeved.

Make sure your base layers in the winter are tight to your body. Next to skin is what they're typically called.


Pants: On a coldish day (40-50F) I don't have a base layer on and usually just wear my cheap knock-off cycling pants. Cycling or hiking or even just wandering around town. (Link) [] I have some Carhartts I wear for pretty much any work I do outside around the house or if I'm camping deep in the woods in the cold. They're flannel lined!

Top: Usually the Patagonia Better Sweater. This thing is an absolute animal. It's classy and is usually seen as a staple in the frat boy look but there's a reason why. It's awesome. It's very comfy and extremely warm. I've also used it in rough situations and it has come out fine. It's surprisingly durable. I also have a tattered up Moosejaw zip-up stretch fleece sweater. Stays really warm, even when wet! I've also heard great things about the North Face Denali.


Pants: Carhartt fleece—lined pants I mentioned above. If I'm out ice fishing and it's really windy, then I'll splash water on them and freeze them to make them more wind resistant.

Jacket: On windy, chilly days (low 40s to high 30s) I have a Moosejaw Harper Hooded Jacket. It's got a jersey cut so I'm covered when bent over. On cold days when I'm doing a lot of moving I have a North Face Morph Jacket that I got from the vendor. Anything from high 40s and up I usually just stick with my mid-layer. If I have a rainy day and I have to be outside then I just throw a Torrentshell on. If I'm in a pinch then a trash bag works too. I'm not picky on waterproof shells. I don't try to stay dry, I just try to stay warm when wet.

Apologies about how unorganized and formatted this is. I'm on mobile currently. I do better answering directed questions about gear then I do just telling about gear. I hope this helped though!

u/nuggggggget · 8 pointsr/wintercycling

Hello! This is my second year bike commuting and I love it! The coldest days of the year in Baltimore look around -15C so it shouldn't be too bad! Things I use/suggest are the following


For you:

Bike helmet cover, something like this to keep in the warmth, but doesnt get too hot

Pair of ski goggles



A pair of cycling only outdoor pants to wear as 'ski pants' over your regular pants like these

Wool socks (Costco has great merino wool ones)


For the bike:


A nice set of lights like these

Bar mitts like these


And just make sure you keep up with cleaning the salt and grime off your bike!


Good luck!

u/berwyn_urine · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

That sweater looks good and the price is good. Go for it.

The socks look okay, but the reviews are rather mixed. Apparently Costco brand wool socks are supposed to be of good quality and receive much praise from frugalmalefashion. As another option, these People Socks are on a great sale and have great reviews. I own 4 pair personally and they are quite thick and warm. Seem like they are going to hold up well through the winter.

u/midnight_daydream · 5 pointsr/discgolf

I played this past weekend and the temp was close to 0 before windchill was factored in.

I wore these pants, which /u/afropirg recommended, with a pair of longjohns underneath. It was the perfect amount of warmth and very nonrestrictive. On top I wore a few long sleeve layers (underarmor cold gear, thermal, thin cotton hoodie) under a wool softshell. Again, I had full range of motion and wasn't bulky. The only thing I'd potentially add would be a wind resistant layer, but I wouldn't say it's necessary.

The only parts of me that got cold were my feet, I had only worn a single pair of wool socks in my waterproof boots. And my face when playing into the wind.

The takeaway here is, warm socks x2 and a face shield if its windy.

Also, one thing I learned is that when you take your hand out of your gloves to putt, if your hand is warm it will stick to the cold soft plastic of putters. Causing some awkward releases. I remedied this by taking my hand out early to give it a chance to 'cool off' for a clean release.

u/catori1207 · 1 pointr/alaska

I don't use Instagram, and unfortunately I'm pretty sure the photo groups might not either. I'm not on Facebook too often anymore either though (mostly just checking in with various businesses these days). I'll see if there's some other way to contact them.

I just found this helpful site that will give a bit more info on what types of things to wear:

For boots I found this pair of Kamiks that aren't too expensive:

Baffin is big up here, and Sorel used to be but I'd stay away from that brand since they were bought out by a company that's manufacturing them overseas now. Baffins are quite a bit more expensive, and since you aren't staying up here very long I don't think you need to be spending quite that much on footwear.

Don't forget good socks too. I found a few on Amazon that might work:[]st[p]cjcauc89h00s4uhyegd7k3gd6[i]gGa3FL[d]T[z]m[t]w[r][]st[p]cjcauc89h00s4uhyegd7k3gd6[i]oVsTkD[d]T[z]m[t]w[r]

As for jackets, that's really up to your preference. Marmot, Patagonia, and Carhartts are popular up here. You can never go wrong with Carhartts in Alaska lol. Get the one big, heavy, outer jacket, and bundle up with under layers like fleece and wool.

If you have any sporting goods stores down there I'd recommend giving them a visit to see if they have any good stuff too. They might be able to give you some information on what to look for too. If all else fails, you can wait to purchase things when you get up here, but it will be more expensive; on the other hand, you'll be able to talk to knowledgeable people about what to buy.

u/BrainSurgeryEngineer · 3 pointsr/CampingandHiking

[X-Post from r/UltraLight]
Not your normal 3 season conditions, at 10,000 ft elevation
Destination: Mitchel Lake in Indian Peaks Wilderness
[2 miles from the Continental Divide]
gps[40.087033, -105.594174]
Trailhead: Brainard lake Winter parking lot
Here is my gear list:
Base weight is: I brought what I needed to stay alive!
Gear I didn’t need:
Insulated pants (M65) were the only item of clothing that I didn’t need to wear to bed
Whisperlite: I got to the lake and saw it was frozen over so spent some time melting snow, while just 10 minutes down the trail there was an inlet flowing … DOH! Could get by with MSR pocket rocket next time
Gear I wish I had:
trucker hat, sunglasses, towel to make hat into sun hat, sun shirt [soon to be umbrella convert?]
with all the snow and almost getting frostbite here a few weeks ago I figured beanie and buff would be enough. The snow is like a bunch of mirrors. My face and lips were so burnt that I only stayed for 1 night, even with tons of sunscreen.
Thoughts on some of the new gear I used:
I didn’t pitch my tent because the winds were nonexistent [rare for ‘w’Indian Peaks Wilderness]

4 CCF pads: the correct amount for sleeping on snow at this altitude (GG thinlite, gg torso pad, full length ¼, torso sol lite) an air pad would just get way too cold on the sides, you would need to get it into your sleeping bag/bivy. [2 full length, ¼ inch pads would have been easier to manage but use what you got, right?]
SOL Lite Bivy: was great for keeping frost off of sleeping bags. The feet of my outter sleeping bag was rather wet in morning from the bivy not ‘breathing’ super well, but my inner sleeping bag feet were still dry! Sun so bright it instantly dried everything, so this would work fine for multi nights I believe. Might have been too small, compressing bags more than I’d have liked
Waterproof Breathable socks: I wore my trail runners which later in the day after snow became slush…. Were wet as expected. At first I tried them by themselves and then later used my wool socks as liners. This was great, the wool kept feet warm and only moisture was from sweat which was easily dealt with by swapping liners during breaks.
I also tried a pair of neoprene socks and much preferred the waterproof breathable
NiteLite Thumb: has been on my keychain since I got it. Has been great when out later than expected and I’m like oh shit I can’t see, but since always have keys, always have a leatherman squirt is on there as well.
Plastic bags for stakes: a horrible Idea… not sure where I heard this. Snow was rock hard Ice in the morning, if I had pitched my tent and used bags it would have been a pain getting them out of ice in the morning
BEAR prints were visible in snow in morning. It was just passing thru, smelled me, and went the other direction. ~25 feet of where I slept. No bear canister, food was beside me OP sack. Bears are cool. as long as you keep smells down and don't cook dinner where you sleep, Andrew Skurka has some decent bear advice for Colorado camping. bears vary. I'd bring a canister to RMNP

u/Deuxstar · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

DTS has the return policy to make them awesome and they're definitely comfortable, but they're a bit pricey for me. I just found it silly to send back a pair of socks after I've worn holes in them with my caveman feet.

My most recent purchase was people socks and I've loved them. Three seasons with them and I am on my original 8 pair. They're definitely durable and a bit more reasonable on the wallet. I've hiked, worked and lounged in them and they still feel great.

71% merino wool

u/jforres · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Are you in DC? I haven't figured out how to look cute while cycling in DC winter, but here's how I stay warm.

In winter, I wear layered jackets, lobster gloves (with another pair underneath if it's really cold), these cycling pants with yoga pants underneath if it's freezing out, smartwhool ski socks and sneakers and then change into my work clothes at work. I used to use a ski mask, but I traded it for two black fleece headbands - one over my ears and one I wear around my neck and pull up over my mouth. I know that sounds super weird, but I think it's more comfortable than the alternatives. Happy cycling!

u/LeRogue · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I usually just wear jeans and a jacket+hoodie and I'm gucci bro. I live in Queens but then again I'm the kinda guy that walks outside during winter in basketball shorts lol. I'd invest in some wool socks though, I bought two pairs of these in 2013 and they still hold up great. Take into account the reviews and choose your size accordingly. One thing to be careful of is the puddles when the snow melts. Especially in the city, it can be very deceiving as to how deep the slush/water is. I'd buy some boots or get really good at jumping over stuff as if you were Mario or something. GL!

u/MrMonday42 · 1 pointr/Ultralight

I'm leaning towards the super breathable quick drying trail runners after doing more research but I do think it would be nice to have a pair of waterproof socks for when it rains and for after river crossings where I wouldn't wear socks and the waterproof sock would protect my wool sock from my wet shoe. These ones on amazon have pretty solid reviews:

u/krispzz · 2 pointsr/MTB

I've been super happy with these cheapish pants off of amazon in any weather below about 55F. Any warmer and they are too hot. I've worn them down into the single digit fahrenheit and they are more than enough. Plus, I can easily fit knee pads over them. They aren't quite tights but are definitely not baggy either.



For UK these look pretty similar but the price goes way up. They are also some on ebay with reasonable shipping.

u/Raewynrh · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

People socks!!!

They aren't super cheap but they last sooo long and are super warm and comfy. We have 8 pairs that have lasted us three winters of heavy use and are still going strong. Plus they are made in the USA! Stay warm!

u/slow_one · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The Spirit of Detroit...
If you don't already have smart wool socks, buy a couple of pair now! It's the only way to go. They seem expensive but they keep your feet warm and dry faster than cotton.
Like these but in your size:
Also, if you can find some Ex-Officio underwear, these are great!
They're warm and they wash and dry over night while traveling!

u/eddyinet · 3 pointsr/onebag

Darn Tough's are the only socks I wear.

Summer is Darn Tough Men's No Show Ultralight (

Winter is Darn Tough Vermont Men's Merino Wool Micro Crew Cushion Hiking Socks (

I know a lot of people like Smart Wool but I've personally found them to wear out fairly quickly. Also you just can't beat the Darn Tough life time warranty.

I own three pairs of each. When traveling / one bagging I just bring two pairs and it works out perfect. I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest to give them a go.

Good luck!

u/nerdybirdie · 5 pointsr/Wishlist

I couldn't recommend trying merino wool more. These ones are my favorite ever because they're so plush and warm, but these ones have a lifetime warranty and they're supposed to be incredible as well.

Brands aside, I'm not kidding when I say that wool socks made my life better. They don't hold odor, they're super warm/cozy but also super breathable and fast drying so it's nearly impossible for your feet to feel clammy on an average day.

u/toodim · 1 pointr/fitness30plus

Socks can matter quite a bit for running, especially running long distances or if your feet get wet.

Running in normal cotton socks is a no-no. Once cotton gets wet it doesn't dry easily and can cause blisters. For moderate distances (say 5 miles or less), any merino wool or synthetic athletic sock should be fine, although I tend to avoid getting socks that are really thin because they arn't as good at preventing blisters. I pretty much always run in Darn Tough 1/4 Socks. They are about as thick as you'd ever want to go for a running sock, but they are super durable and prevent blisters pretty well. I have over 1000 miles on one of my pairs and I can still wear them.

u/Darthchicken · 2 pointsr/travel

Here's what I'm going to wear for my 5 month journey through SE asia and New Zealand....

  • 1 very light cotton button down shirt
  • 2 Soccer Jerseys (Adidas climacool)
  • 1 Baseball Jersey
  • 1 pair denim jeans
  • 1 pair of Colmbia convertable pants
  • 2 cotton shorts
  • 1 swim trunks
  • 4 pairs of Adidas climacool underwear
  • 4 pairs wigwam acrylic socks

    For the colder climate in New Zealand
    I'm bringing

  • 2 pairs of long hiking socks
  • Thermal underwear
  • Thermal top
  • A cold weather jacket
  • A windbreaker

    The soccer jerseys are probably the absolute greatest thing to wear when traveling. They are light, easy to wash, quick drying, and great in the heat!
u/Queef_Sludge · 2 pointsr/FixedGearBicycle

I do thermal pants and top (found some cheap at a REI outlet sale).

Wool socks

tshirt and shorts.

If it's below 35 I'll add a windproof riding vest because it keeps my pits open (rei sale).

The head is important. Balaclavas are great for coverage. I really like a scar for versatility and I combo it with Ear Bags. A ridiculous name but they fit perfect in between helmet straps.

u/Jobeanie123 · 3 pointsr/EDC

A bunch of wool socks and a Gerber Shard!.

The shard seems a little strange, but right now I need something else to put on my keyring just to give it something more to grab onto when I pull it out of my pocket! The shard seems like a good solution. If I can get one use out of the little phillips and perhaps the pry bar it'll probably be worth it!

u/TonyOstrich · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I don't think I am there yet. There are quite a few outfits I have, where I have no idea objectively if they look good or not. I am pretty good at seeing whether something fit's properly, but not very good with color and style matching. That said there are certain items I do know go well together, and this is one of them

The outfit:

Waxed Olive

Canvas in black

Express Crew Neck (Small) in Black

Gustin Brass Roller - Saddle Brown Belt (Second notch) Size 32

Redwing Beckman 9016 Size 9 (Probably a half size too large, but made better by thick merino wool socks)

Levi 511 Rigid Dragon 29x32

People Socks - Merino Wool Blend

All in all it's a super simple outfit, and not very hard to pull off. The belt is not naturally the right color to match the shoes. It's a much lighter shade of brown, and with all of the other dark pieces does not work well. I darken the belt by massaging cocnut oil into it, letting it sit for 24 hours, and then polishing with Red Wings Dusky Brown polish (same polish I use on the shoes). I do this whenever I notice the color getting a bit too light.

u/Impendingconfetti · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Seconding this.

I have a good amount of quality socks from when I was testing out different brands. CHUP, Anonymous Ism, People Socks, Wigwam, Smartwool, Kapital, Kirkland, Carhartt, Orvis and Darn Tough.

Darn Tough is easily my favorite, it really isn't even close. I don't think I will buy any other socks unless someone makes a really compelling argument to try out a different brand.

Just buy Darn Tough for everything. I have a thicker boot pair that is my favorite, a thinner type of the same length that is great for my closer fitting boots or sneakers and I have a pair that is about ankle height.

Actually sorry this is the internet.

Thicker Socks My Favorite



u/paperclouds412 · 2 pointsr/discgolf

Columbia North Plains WP are the best affordable option out there. I paid like 50 for mine. I've worn them all winter along with wet rounds. I recently got a pair of waterproof socks that are amazing just as added protection.

Here they are for $33. Here are the socks.

u/ateaktree · 3 pointsr/Kayaking

When I want to wear pants for kayaking my goto has been:

They dry very quickly, allow for good flexibility, and are quite comfortable.

u/kenn0223 · 3 pointsr/CyclingMSP

I've used these for a few years. They are significantly warmer than they look and are wind and waterproof. They are some random brand but are priced much cheaper than name brand bike stuff and better than a lot of other things I've tried.

To about 20 deg I am fine with just regular compression shorts underneath and as it gets colder I add leggings and eventually smart wool pants.

They are "asian sized" which for me means I need a large. I normally wear size 29 x 30 jeans and small under amour leggings.

u/elementality22 · 8 pointsr/rawdenim

Recent Purchases go here

What have you guys bought lately? Thanks to /u/12potato4 I picked up these from Anonymous Ism and these as well as these from People's socks, I love socks.

u/x_glo · 3 pointsr/TeenMFA

I recently got these to go with some Beckman Rounds I ordered. They're amazing. They fit snug on my feet, I always seem to be too small for socks. Really warm, nice cushioning. Couldn't recommend enough of you're wearing boots.

u/goatsdrinkyourpee · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Yep, Rainier Travel Chino. Just weighed at 11.75oz.

Here's the Columbia pants:

The Columbia pants have a magical ability to stay clean after days on the trail as well. And they come with a nice thin nylon belt that I use all the time since it doesn't interfere with my pack hip belt.

u/einstein2001 · 2 pointsr/goodyearwelt

I just picked these Kirkland trail socks for a decent price. I've been wearing them with my work boots and they are very comfortable.

I hear Darn Tough makes some great socks with a lifetime guarantee. People socks are another option for thick boot socks.

u/glswindle · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

I buy the brand people socks on amazon. 4 pair packs for like $28. I’ve been progressively replacing them when they wear out, and I love them. I wear them year round as well. Link:

u/Virginia_Slim · 19 pointsr/nba

Buy an Amazon gift card at Walmart. Go on Amazon and get the socks you want.

These are what I've been rocking lately, really enjoy them.

u/Punch_Drunk_AA · 8 pointsr/Wildfire


I'm partial to Mirmaru socks, you're going to make your living on your feet. Take care of them.

Of course there's other basics such as high energy snacks, sanitary supplies and if you want something better than what your agency will give you, pick out some canteens.

You'll get the list of rules for your barracks the same day you move in. Barracks are a lot like college dorms, only way older. Clean up after yourself, if you blow up the shitter clean it, follow the golden rule, don't drink if you're underage. When you wack-off in the shower, make sure it all goes down the drain so the next guy doesn't step in it. If you chew, spit in a bottle and throw it away in a outside trashcan.

Turn your music down at night and get a pair of head phones because of the jerks who don't. Some dorms have wi-fi now a days, but you'll be sharing it with 12 other people so get out of your room and socialize.
Don't let your laundry get out of hand, you will stink up the whole place. If there is a chore list, do your share and make you crew look good. You won't just be sharing you barracks with firefighters, other departments have seasonal employees too. They get used to firefighters not being around, so they will get annoyed when you are. They will find anything to bitch about, so don't give them a reason to.


u/Pwntastic1 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Depending on how much snow is in your area, I would recommend these or maybe these. I think Amazon has a 20% off coupon FALSHOES. Not sure if it applies to both of these boots, I have not tried.

In addition to these boots, for warmth, get some wool socks like these or these. The costco socks are half the price, but owning both, I can say personally that the People Socks are thicker and nicer quality.

u/imjusthereforab · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Prana brion are my go-to outdoor pants. The Zion version has cargo pockets, but these are pretty slim fit.

I use them for cycling, climbing, hiking, etc.

u/crvne · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If you're gonna be wearing them with shorts get something like these.

For wearing them with pants I'd definitely get some merino wool socks. I've had good experiences with Wigwam socks.

u/jmosey · 1 pointr/cycling

If you’re interested for something on your legs there are some great inexpensive options available on Amazon. As much as I love my local shop, it’s hard justifying $100-$200 for some of the name brand stuff when things like this are available.

These work great in the range you’re talking about. I haven’t worn them below 30, but I suspect they would work down into the mid 20’s.

Baleaf Men's Thermal Cycling...

I routinely wear these down into the teens and even single digits. The pant legs are a little baggier so you might want a band or some electrical tape around the drive side.

4ucycling Unisex Windproof...

u/dognow · 1 pointr/medlabprofessionals

Whatever shoes you go with, be sure to buy some Darn Tough Socks to go with them. Those socks make good shoes feel great. I am very serious, wear these socks.

u/TheRockDoctor · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

People Socks are excellent. Pricier than Kirkland, but less expensive than Smartwool. I've found them to be very comfortable and durable.

u/ampersammich · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Not as slim, I imagine, but you might be able to find a good fit. (36 for me is a little too big, but I can never buy my waist size of 32)

u/NorwegianWood28 · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Has anyone had any experience with Mirmaru Hiking Socks? I am going to be doing some day hiking (~8 miles max) in Rocky Mountain National park next week, and Zion in november. Other hiking socks are $20/pair, but I am wondering if those more expensive ones are more for multi-day hiking, and if the ones linked are sufficient for my needs.

The Mirmaru have really good amazon reviews, but my understanding is sometimes the reviews are faked.

u/can_has · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

GET THESE if you need warm socks whatsoever, or will. Crazy good deal considering the quality, made in Brooklyn I believe

I took some FMFA and tried them out months ago, they are wonderful warm socks. *down to 19.90 shipped, for 4 pair (prime, amazon)

u/senator_mendoza · 2 pointsr/AskMen

specifically i'd recommend - this underwear, and these socks

life's so much better with awesome socks and underwear

u/NovaKnights · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I might also recommend People Socks on Amazon as an alternative. They're consistently $24-26 for a 4-pack and they feel great!

u/penguinsuitman · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I have a few pairs of people's socks that are really nice and reasonably priced for high quality MiUSA wool socks. They ship w/ amazon prime so that's also cool.

u/CeruleanCervine · 1 pointr/streetwear

I use merino hiking socks because I wear boots almost exclusively, these are my favorite pair. Comfortable in all normal weather conditions, plain and not athletic looking with invisible branding.

u/AimForTheAce · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

You may want to get a balaklava, if your coughing is from breathing in cold air. It helps to warm up the air you breath in, and retain some moisture.

To stay warm, a wind breaker is a must. I picked up 3 of 30% wool blend thermal inner shirt at TJ Maxx (so you'd not be able to find one, sorry. I'm actually looking for more too.) and it's extremely warm. Around 30F, I'd wear this inner, a fleece and wind breaker. I'm almost too warm. (I have a bar mitts, so it helps too.)

The other one is the thermal pants. I got this one and works pretty well.

BTW, 8 miles seems long at beginning, but once you get used to it, it's a comfy distance.

u/Afropirg · 1 pointr/discgolf

I use these tucked into my hoodie. Fits perfect, keeps my hands warm, especially with a hot hands inside and is out of the way when throwing.

I have Nike Hyperwarm winter running gear base layer to wear under my 4ucycling pants. My legs never get cold. Feet I have a pair of winter hiking socks.

u/flynnski · 1 pointr/motocamping

Merino. Effin'. Wool.

People socks, in particular, seem to be the best deal running. I bought a bunch of 'em and they held up really nicely over a three month trip mostly spent in Keens. Wore 'em a couple days in a row, no problem, no stink.

They're absurdly comfortable, warm in the cold and reasonably cool in the heat. I can't say enough about 'em.

Also, put your dirty and clean laundry in separate bags.

u/CertifiedPublicAss · 1 pointr/RedWingShoes

My go to are the Darn Tough Men's Solid Basic Crew Light ( I wear these with 8 last boots. For 23 Last boots, I can get by with thicker socks which are a little too snug for me in the 8 last. Their hiking line works for those boots but I find they are unbearably warm during warmer weather. Winter socks only:,

u/Priapulid · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Gold Toe (100% wool) makes some and Wigwam (34% wool blend), although I can't attest to them since I rarely wear dress socks. Wigwam pretty consistantly get good reviews from what I have seen.

My current favorite budget wool work/hiking socks are People Socks (71% wool and USA made!)... but they might be a tad thick for dress shoes.

u/fxsnowy · 1 pointr/snowboarding

First time going snowboarding in denver in a few weeks, will this jacket be fine?

Also do I need ski/snowboarding socks like this
or can these wool socks do the job?

u/SquishSquash81 · 11 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Peoplesocks are the best deal in socks right now.

u/greenroom628 · 2 pointsr/nfl

oh man, wool wigwam socks are the best. i ask for them for christmas every year.

u/ASpiderling · 5 pointsr/rollerblading

I don't understand it either, but I just watch the breakdowns of each of the concepts and try to learn them. I take a video ... of the video on my phone and then play it back slowly until I am able to conceptualize what he's doing and try to copy it. My pants are these - it was about 40F out, which isn't too bad though compared to other places.

u/sponge-worthy93 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm not so much a boot man, but my father is. Every year for Father's Day I order him some pairs of Wigwam socks on Amazon. They're decently pricey, but they're his favorite.

Just got a 4 pack of these. They were just like 17.99 and they're very warm so far.

Costco's Kirklands aren't bad and People's socks from amazon are nice too, this from a Minneapolis native.

Goddamn Cozy

Also, yes I do expect them to last a long long time, and if they do wear out, I'll have them replaced.

u/VirtualLife76 · 6 pointsr/onebagging

I got 2 of these

and 1 of these for colder weather

They all have a good thick heel, so more than enough cushion.

*They do run a little small.

I have the ucycling. Looks good so far.

For my department I basically mirror what I wear for the feds.

Brush pants

Brush shirt




Socks (Over top of a cheap pair of cotton socks)

Pack (Since I'm guessing you probably don't get far from your engine for any length of time you could probably get away with a simple engine IA pack)

Hydration Kit (6L with converter kit) (camelbak bladder works just as well, or a couple of nalgene water bottles)

We do a lot of wildland fires as a department and often go out of the area for 2 weeks at a time. Well other members do but since I'm working for the feds I don't go unless it's pre or post season.

u/CactusSmackedus · 2 pointsr/washingtondc

looking for more cold weather stuff on amazon now 🙃

I don't need these yet but I have a feeling come winter I will

these bad boys are only 20 bucks so I'm getting a second pair.

Is this your first year commuting too? When it gets below freezing do you need special tires or a different bike? And what about riding when it is snowing -- don't do it, or... can it be done safely?

Right now I'm commuting on an aluminum frame roadbike with no fenders, but I'm looking to buy another bike for redundancy as the current bike kind of needs the whole drive train replaced.

u/Lil_Pooper · 2 pointsr/minnesota

Even in January! I also wear these pants alone or over my regular pants for walking the dog, commuting, or any time I have to be outside for an extended period. They block wind like nothing else. I've been stopped by a cyclist who had the same ones just so they could congratulate me on having warm pants. They are asian sizing though so check out the reviews.

Not spendy or flashy, but warm and durable.

u/ChefShimi · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I wear these pretty much exclusively. They might be a little thick, but they don't get too hot.

A lot of people also suggest smartwool or the costco brand wool socks.

u/Trickyatesome · 1 pointr/discgolf

Last year i bought these waterproof socks. 3' to 6' of Michigan snow and only wearing cheap tennis shoes. Some times foot warmers on the shoes, but my feet never became wet. in the long run i can buy any pair of shoes i want and not have to fork out $170 for high end waterproof shoes that might last a season.

u/AdviseMyAdvice · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

Semi-urgent as I'm wearing these to work today (driving though...) and I'm worried I should return them.

Do these look like they fit correctly? One Redditor said they might be too narrow for my feet. They feel a little tight but I am wearing some thick-ish socks. - sitting - on my toes

u/junkpile1 · 2 pointsr/Firefighting

Recently I've been double bagging with these, and having good results. People Socks @ Amazon.

Previous to this experiment, I was using exclusively WigWam wool blend socks and had no problems. I only switched because in the 4x pack, People Socks are significantly cheaper. So far they have been comparable in comfort and durability.

u/Coffinspired · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Hey thanks.

Yeah, I'm looking for something like this...I think...I really don't have experience with weatherproof pants. Which is nuts, considering I've now cycled through 3 PA winters, but I've always just layered and "sucked it up". But I'm sick of doing that and want to be warm.

I was hoping some here would have experience with overpants like these, compared to tights. Or any other better solution they've come up with.

I'm concerned they may be too bulky or loose in the lower leg, that I'd have to worry about them getting caught in the chainring.

Over 40ish deg, I'm kinda set. I'll just ride in thermal tights and my Gore softshell. At those temps and up, I don't mind getting a little damp in the legs.

Dis and dis and dese and dose.

u/Russian_For_Rent · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

+1 for people socks. $26 dollars right now on amazon and I just snagged my second set.

u/trulyoutrageous · 1 pointr/discgolf

I've been contemplating some breathable and convertible hiking pants that zip off into shorts when necessary, such as this:

Haven't pulled the trigger but I'm digging the idea of the versatility.

Here is a link to a pair of the Darn toughs on Amazon.

u/Zip668 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

13EE with a high arch/instep and I swear by these.

u/JaxTellerr · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

don't know why I commented in such broken english lol, but there are different people socks. The cheaper ones or these ones.

Which percentage merino wool are yours, 71 or 42?

u/WOgles · 1 pointr/backpacking

I have been wearing these, People Socks for awhile now, and I will never go back. I love 'em. It's summer in Oklahoma and my feet are always comfy in them.

u/Cixelsid · 10 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

They've sold as high as $35 on Amazon, but average price has been around $26.73. This is the lowest they've been ever.

u/666kate, you don't need sock-garters or whatever the fuck they are called.
