    shin protection

    I ran into a cement bench at night on the beach last week. I got back to the mountains yesterday and when i put my boots on realized it is right on the tongue of my boot and kills.

    Any thoughts on some soft shin protection i can put on until this open wound heels?

    3rd the beer coozy. Accidentally fuskered my Intuitions leaving them too close to an electric baseboard heater and coozy made them skiable until I could replace them.
