    I agree with this. I usually wear socks under tights or pants so nobody would see them.

    Maybe something like the tags that Safety Pizza sells? They are easier to spot than zipper pulls, socks, etc. Or something like this with custom printing/colors? Blue Lug makes a variety of smaller ones.

    Those tags look good and would be visible to all.

    How about a different color gaiter. They are always useful.

    Ok, newbie question - what is the primary intent of the identifiers, beyond waving and saying hello?

    The identifiers:
    1. help you identify other FS participants, either from this year or from previous years
    2. serve as a conversation starter, when people ask you why you have a bright green zipper pull/ankle band/gaiter/whatever
    3. establish your bona fides as a Rule 9 badass
    4. all of the above!

    Agree. Needs to be easily hung/identifiable, so we can give that knowing "nod". Plus will put quite a crimp on the Sock Contest.

    Can someone please share a link to all the rules? I've heard of them and never read them all in one place. Thanks!

    Reflective ankle bands narrowly edged out socks in the poll, 34% to 31%, so ankle bands it is. Coming soon to a happy hour near you, hopefully!
