^ Great combination, mdubs.As another posted stated, cold wash and line dry. Honestly, though, the moleskin is pretty robust. I've walked through brush in them, played touch football, camped, hiked, etc. Great for being outdoors in the cold (as long as they don't get crazy wet, since they are cotton).I have one pair, in dark green, where the dye has worn off quickly around the waistband. My camel pair are perfectly fine.
