    Talk to me about the FlameThrower Socks

    Can owners of the FlameThrower Socks chime in and give me some feedback?
    I need something to keep my little piggies nice and warm on those cold nights.

    Do the sizes run true to actual shoe size or should I go a wee bit larger for wiggle room?
    Overstuff or not?

    I wear a 10 and picked up the XL, so for me they fit great. The pair I ordered is just the standard fill and they work good for me. I have had problems in the past with my feet getting cold and the flamethrower socks have helped me with that a lot. They have been in my pack since I received them earlier this year and will probably remain there as I climb in elevation this year.

    Next I need PG to make me a pair that I can wear with some flip flops around camp...

    I have the FT socks, XL, and they fit well (size 10 foot). Very well made product.

    I didn't get overfill. Unless you have really cold feet, I don't think they need extra.

    The one exception to that is the XXL size, a 1/2 once or so extra makes them a so fluffy

    I shudder to think what a trip to JoAnn's does to you.
