ON THE PODIUM
Justwore some Prosok for the first time today on a nice warm ride. I pickedup a couple pairs of V2 from Tom at Vassago and my first thought when Iput them on was- "Man these things are plush!"

In the past couple years I have worn the heck out of the Prosok Bamboo socks, hiking, hunting, wade fishing, and just [...]
