Best Gore / vapor barrier sock 4 the money & where to buy?(4 posts)

Best Gore / vapor barrier sock 4 the money & where to buy?BergMann
Mar 7, 2003 9:46 AM
My preliminary research into Gore tex or other-branded vapor barrier socks (recommended in several threads on winter footwear) has shown that the going rate for Gore (e.g. Rocky or Performance brand) socks appears to be around $50 + shipping.
That seems a bit steep for socks. Does anyone have any recommendations for a cheaper vapor-barrier solution and where to find it?
(Already tried my two LBSs, a hunting store, and the local Wallmart, to no avail).
Are these the ones you mean ?Scot_Gore

This is Gore-Tex's direct retail site. If your a member of Rails to Trails there's more discount available.
