    All socks are not equal.

    And here is a link why we do not use goretex socks on winter. This blog is written by trail runner who runs on winter. I know this guy quite well, and he still luckily has all toes. And before you click this, I have to say that it is not nice what you see...

    All socks are not equal.

    Little late but anyways. You have to have big enough boots for cold weather, thick wool socks and merino liners. And also you do have to have good, thick wool insole. And if your feet gets wet, change socks immediately. If there is enough cold, -10 degrees celsius, then don’t use goretex...

    Karrimor SF Stealth jacket

    That's true, I did try this jacket in forest and it did blend to green forwst. Of course movement will reveal you, it does not matter what you wear, if you move you'll get noticed.

    Karrimor SF Stealth jacket

    Colour was easy:p Only grey was in right size. But nice to have something diffrent this time, usually I purchase od/camo. And for wintertime grey is quite good. Also purchased used british army fleece, now I have good setup. Jacket looks really robust and warm, I think that it is quite "silent"...

    Karrimor SF Stealth jacket
