RE: RE: [BackpackGearTest] Edit/Approval: OR - Swiftwick Pursuit Seven Socks - Kathy Waters
Whoops! Fixed it and also fixed the GSI Wine Carafe as well.
Kathy I just checked your uploaded version for this review and the date is missing. Please get that sorted ASAP.

Made the correction, including the rewording about how wool handles sweat! Deleted the test file and uploaded the corrected one. You should check out these socks, definitely. I have a few compression socks now and these don’t feel as constrictive as some of the others. But then again, I don’t really “need” compression socks, you might need more tightness because of your ankle.
Thanks for the sock review. I need to check these out as I have to wear compression socks now. Just a few edits for you after which you may place it at:
Reviews > Clothing > Socks > Swiftwick Pursuit Seven Socks
***The compression part of the socks is compliments of the 29% Nylon and 7% Spandex materials in the construction.
EDIT: delete "is" and drop an "s" from either compliments or socks.
*** On backpacking trips, I worn the socks with mid-height boots,
*** Fortunately, thanks to our high desert climate, the night times cool down
Edit: I think "the nighttime cools down" is proper
***The Pursuit Seven is a "light compression" sock that Swiftwick claims will promotes blood flow,
EDIT: either delete "will" or drop the "s" from promotes
*** Wool is a fantastic natural fiber that I come to rely on in the hottest of the hot weather. It's no warmer than any other fabric - actually, it's cooler than a lot of
synthetics - AND it wicks away my inevitable sweat like no other fabric does. Wool is hydrophilic and pulls moisture away from my tootsies keeping them dry.
Edit: actually you are right that it is hydrophilic, but that means it absorbs moisture. (Almost 1/3 its weight) There are many better wicking fabrics (hydrophobic) than wool, including all synthetics. Most 100% wool socks are worn with a wicking liner. Wool socks meant to wick also use a blend of synthetic fibers to accomplish this (as Swiftwick does). You may want to reword that.
