Tacticool goes too far sometimes

Ya know, gun nuts are a funny sort. Seriously, will anyone be buying tactical socks for operators?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s a quality sock. But do folks not realize how silly Special Operations Sock sounds?

I thought it could have been an April 1 joke at first.

    there’s tactical underwear too http://www.511tactical.com/browse/Home/Law-Enforcement/511-Undergear/Bottoms/D/30000/P/1:100:10000:10800:10802

    It seems Operators favor the boxer-brief

    And if the socks don’t work, and you get trenchfoot, try Fast Acting Tacticool Tinactin!

    As funny as it sounds, I have a pair of 5.11 tacti-cool socks that came free with my 5.11 boots. They are actually rather comfortable, aside from the raw petroleum/rubber smell when you first wear them..

    Someone just misheard… it’s SOC (special operations command)!

    They’re probably similar to runner’s socks which help to wick away moisture and prevent blisters. It sounds like the company is doing some very specific and amusing marketing.
