Always fold and a man should only have black. You don't want to be looking like Cliff Klavin with the white socks.

I confess...I'm a "roller". Old Navy habit. Hell, we rolled everything. It not only took up less space in the seabag...but things came out without any wrinkles when done right.

Who knew? I've been missing that sock information for years. My life is now complete.

The Army taught us to fold and roll, and yes the clothing travels much better.

I used to fold and roll but with the advent of the down jacket I slowly became a stuffer. I 'spose my looks now resemble Emo Phillips who'd be quick to say "Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps."

Howdy Jack. Haven't seen you here for a while. I'm frequently admiring your temperatures down there as things begin to freeze up here in NW OR.

Happy holidays.

Yeah, I'm detecting some serious issues here myself.

I played marine(moron,bonehead and many other) on several on and under the water vessels. And my socks regardless of why I needed to change them or where they were packed into. If I reach into whatever bag to get a pair of socks they are always rolled together so I get a pair and not have to go digging for a second one?
Folded with name tank serial number and everything else in garrison but deployed/abroad or what the hell ever anybody wants to call it? It's a sea bag with everything paired together socks,blouse and bottoms, and even the a weeks worth of PT gear with each and every day folded and rolled together. In a sea bag with the sleeping mat used as the liner in the sea bag to shove everything into. Including the ALICE frame and all.
Definitely a specific packing system that had been worked out.

I should have said "You guys wear socks?"

I'm known to use an occasional coat hanger these days, but when I travel I still roll everything.
