Re: Re: Ticks
I'm not a pro antibiotic sorta guy. However, given what I know about ticks now --the many possible nasty things they can spread, and how little is actually known-- I'd be taking a short ter...

Re: Tyvek or Laminated "Chemical Coveralls" as VBL???

Re: Re: Re: Re: re: Trailroc 235s
Javan, Could you compare the sole thickness and ground feel of the 235s compared to the Breathos? Can you also state if you had the insoles in or out of the Breathos? Thanks, r

Re: Gear to protect against THE most deadly backcountry beastie...

Re: re: Trailroc 235s
Thanks, guys. Justin....I didn't see the comparison you were referring to. I probably just overlooked it. David.....have you tried the Vivo Breatho and if so, how does the thickness of it...

Re: Trailroc 235
