    not really relevant to the socks, but as for boot leaks, i took an old mtb trick for punctured mtb tyres and transfered it to my boots, i now carry a small piece of bike innertube with me (4") in my first aid kit, if i get a leak i use a piece of this and a bit of superglue, (aslo in my 1st aid kit) to patch it up, it works a treat especially with the weight of my body on it. top tip: carry a piece of innertube and superglue, job done

    Thumbs up MOD Gortex socks

    Ok, I'm sold! I want to get some MOD Gortex socks (hopefully for my birthday at the end of Jan).. but I'm having trouble sourcing some in my size online. Where would be the best place to get some size 10 UK?

    Can't do that! Then you've got the hassle of getting another pair!

    Aww bud, you really sure? ... I don't mind finding my own honestly.

    ...inner tube's good for lighting fires in the wet too.

    I have to agree with the other chaps....I also like the green mod boot liners, Prefer them to boots with the gortex liner intergrated in the boot. A simple [much like myself] unlinned pair of boots,with a liner or sock, if needed ?! My preference.
    On that subject, does anyone have any knowledge of the ROGUE range of boots ?
