    You know with all this orange gear you'll be the safest hiker out during hunting season. Those socks look might warm and cozy. Enjoy
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Yep!

    I discovered that I can also turn my orange flame throwers inside out and wear the black on the outside! Both sides look finished. Possibly not the most efficient way of getting full loft from the slipper, if inner and outer shells differ in size. However, mine have the extra half ounce, so they are super puffy with downy goodness and mega-warm. The size Large feel plenty comfortable on my size 10 feet when worn this way, and they color coordinate with my base layer better this way!

    I've been lusting after those for a while now. I think the orange ones are warmer than the black - at least they look like they are

    dblhmmck stumbled onto one of the advantages of how we do our FlameThrower socks, they are totally reversible. With the exception of one little hem around the top of the sock where the elastic gathers them you can turn the inside out and no one could even tell a difference. No right or wrong way to wear them.

    I'll turn one inside out and wear them that way and let you know if the orange or the black is warmer!
