Tube socks suck for numerous reasons with the two main ones being they're usually made of cotton which takes forever to dry and they bunch up around the heel and ankle because they don't have a defined heel. I like 3/4 height crew hiking socks, sometimes called mini-crew, for mountain biking. I look for socks that dry quickly, wick well and are somewhat cool. Brands I've had good luck with are some of the usual suspects; Thorlo, Eurosock and Columbia.

Hey Thanks Rio, I will check some out.  BTW- you know we don't really care much about the actual tube sock???  But hey if her name is Sally Tubesock, I could learn to adapt....biggrin.gif

I wear long pants when hacking through actual woods off road.  I prefer some cloth between my legs and thorned vines, poison ivy, etc...
