The new basic sock of the Finnish Defence Force. These socks work well with any lined boot and together with a thicker pair of socks they make any non-lined leather boot much more comfortable.
Note: unlike the picture shows, the front seam is now on the top to eliminate any possibility of it chafing your feet.
Like any sock from Finnish armed forces, these will keep their shape and fit well throughout years of use.
Wash in 40 degrees celsius.
In line with FDF standards, the amount of stripes on the cuff indicate size. We might have some sizes with old stock where this info isn't accurate, but the sock is the correct size (as printed on the carton)
in any case.
Sized according to European shoe sizes, with corresponding common S, M, L etc. sizes in brackets. See the chart below for further reference:
Manufactured in Finland to meet Finnish Defence Forces specifications.
The M05 sock differs from it's predecessor (a rather sad cotton affair) in two revolutionary ways: 1) it's moisture wicking and 2) it stands a fair chance of actually drying after use. Personally I've always considered the M05 sock to be worth its weight in gold (admittedly not terribly much) and finding a clean pair in one's drawer gives one the same sense of security as a cupboard full of loo-roll when you've a bad case of jallah-jallah.
An ancient yet nifty soldier's trick for more serious use is to wear two or more socks on top of each other, which effectively transfers the friction caused by walking/running from being between your sock and your foot, to being between two socks. In effect this means that your skin is more likely to stay attached to your feet, which can be considered an advantage during a forced march.
